Do your hands fall asleep

Libby and I were also talking about how our hands fall asleep at night. (I'm thinking about this because my hand is falling asleep typing this). It's totally a genetic thing and I think we got it from Papa. I want to know who in the family has this same problem. I put a Poll at the side. Please don't vote if you're not genetically related to Papa (sorry In-laws). Leave a comment so we know who voted.

Creamy Jello

1 3.4 oz. pkg. Jello (granny's was always pink... raspberry, cherry or strawberry?)
1 C. boiling water
1 8 oz. cool whip

Boil water. Dissolve jello in water. Stir in cool whip. Refrigerate until set.

(Libby and I were talking about how fun it would be to gather all of granny's recipes and make a recipe book out of them. I think I have a lot of them and there is a yellow cookbook out there that a lot of our parents have that has a lot of them. But Granny didn't have recipes for a lot of things that she made either. So, I thought that the blog would be a great place to keep these recipes and then maybe for Christmas NEXT year, I will make everyone a recipe book. On the side bar I have posted some of the recipes that I could think of. I will try to cook these and measure what I put in them so that I can write down the recipes. Please post a comment of recipes that you would like to have in the book. Or add them to the side bar.)

We love Libby

We were fortunate enough to have Libby come and stay with us for about 4 days. It was so nice to have her here. I loved having adult conversation during the day. It was fun to have someone to go shopping with. The boys loved her. Yesterday, I told Joren that Sam (our neighbor) was going to baby sit. He said, "no, I want Libby to baby sit." You're welcome to stay any time!!!

Right now is a good time for us to be mindful of our family in our prayers.

Today Uncle Michael went in for surgery for his prostate cancer. Pray for him.

Aunt Debbie is hanging in there. She is still scheduled for Chemo up until the Monday before Christmas. Pray for her.

We love everyone in this family and want to make sure they are well.

We got to baby sit Legacy on Friday night. She is such a cutie and we love having her around. We got out the last of the Halloween candy and dumped it all out on the counter so we could go through it. She immediately grabbed all of the smarties... I guess she likes smarties. It was so cute to watch her. She didn't grab any other kind of candy. A couple of other cute things she did. We were looking at an animal book and she would "tickle" the animals and say, "tickle." She's starting to talk a lot more and it's really cute. She was constantly trying to climb up on our counter (Shellie would have been mad). And she loves our Elmo chicken. As soon as she saw him, she said, "Elmo" very clearly. Thanks for letting us baby sit, you should do it more often.

Thriller, was Thrilling

Halloween with the Williams clan means a night at the show, Thriller at Tuachan.  The best part is when Cash gets startled by one of the "walking dead".  He tries his hardest to avoid them, but they always seem to find him!
