Dough Making

For our "extra" meeting this month we made Christmas cookie dough to freeze away for the holidays. YUM.
We made four different doughs, doubling the recipe, if needed, to make sure every family received enough dough for 1 dozen cookies of each type.  All of our dough is now safely frozen away waiting for Christmas time to come around.

It was a fun day and a really enjoyable way to make Christmas dough.  I’d love to have all the helpers come back over and make even more dough to squirrel away.

Foreign Language

Originally we were scheduled to play croquet tonight.  However, the lack of light and hard ground necessitated a quick change for our badge work.  I had the girls come prepared to talk about a foreign language of their choice.  It was fun listening to them as they attempted to say several phrases and recite John 3;16 in their chosen language.
We opened  our evening going through our verse, purpose, goal and prayer.  We then sang our hymn for the month, Be Thou My Vision.  It was so sweet listening to the girls singing the hymn.  We then did a brief devotional on Patience.  We’ll be working through the Keepers character study book on Patience.  Each week we’ll do a little more in the book until we’re through.  By then we should all have patience in every situation, right??? ;-)
