Since our table is so little, I measured in 9" or so before I added the ruffle, so there would be room for a plate at both ends of our table. =D ~
I made something I had seen in Taste of Home as well. I couldn't get the recipe to open up for me on-line to see the name and details...so I'll just call them..."Oreo ice cream sandwiches!"
I just dipped the top of an Oreo cookie in chocolate, and added some red, white, and blue sprinkles. T.O.H. used only white ice cream in the middle...but I decided to use scoops of red, white, and blue ice cream and then I added another Oreo on the bottom. It was a fun and fast little dessert that we all enjoyed!~
Next week we have some EXCITING PLANS that I will tell you about below...so, my pretty cake stand was purchased for that event!~
Quinceañera party. Now, Kimberly won't turn 15 until next Jan. but by then we should be living/working in Argentina! We NEVER celebrate our kid's birthdays so early, but this birthday is a BIG one here in Latin/South America. We REALLY wanted to have a Quinceañera for her here in Colombia for she has lived here since she was 8 and has so many DEAR friends that are like FAMILY to us!
So, Lord willing, next Wednesday, July 11th, we are having a Quinceañera for Kimberly in the 2nd floor of the church. It won't be as fancy as I would love to have it, for we don't want to go to the expense of renting a big hall, and table clothes, chair covers, dishes, etc. But, Lord willing, (with HIS HELP) it should be a fun relaxing little celebration for our special Kimberly whom Jesus has loaned to us.
~Here is Mary eating lunch. I failed to get a picture of Marisol and I.~
~Tomorrow, Friday, July 6th (My Grandma Bryan's first BIRTHDAY in Heaven!) is our church's 5th Anniversary service/dinner. All of us from our church have invited several unsaved families. We would appreciate your prayers that Jesus will help this to be a blessing and touch lives for Him!~
~On Monday, July 9th, Bro. Joseph Smith, and his daughter Stephanie will arrive from IN to teach/translate our classes on the book of Romans starting Tuesday, July 10th-Sunday, July 15th. Please pray that God will make this classes a blessing for ETERNITY!
~Kimberly's Quinceañera on Wednesday, July 11th. It will be like a service as well, for there normally is a sermon at these events.
Thank y'all for your prayers and all of your sweet comments. It makes MY WEEK hearing from y'all! =)
