My children and their spouses, family reunion 2015
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Mother In Law Day which is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the two families that came together when you married, and the woman who raised your spouse!
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family. Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.
I am happy to say that I’m a Mother In Law to the seven spouses of my 7 children and am proud to say they are all wonderful addition to our family. So I’ll be celebrating today. I am thankful that my children have married and now have homes and families of their own. They are pictured in my post today
It was a very fast week here and hard to believe it’s Sunday already. I did get a lot done this week so I’ll welcome a day of rest. The week ahead looks to be another busy one too.
I hope you all have a RELAXING Sunday!
It’s Boston Creme Pie Day!
This is one of my favorite desserts and really not so very hard to make when you make a box cake mix and use instant pudding.
Boston Creme Pie
1 pkg., 3.4 oz., Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
1 cup plus 2 Tbsp. cold milk, divided
1 1/2 cups thawed Cool Whip Topping
1 round yellow cake layer
1 oz. Unsweetened Chocolate
1 Tbsp. butter
3/4 cup powdered sugar
Beat pudding mix and 1 cup milk in medium bowl with whisk 2 min. Stir in COOL WHIP. Let stand 5 min. Meanwhile, cut cake horizontally into 2 layers with serrated knife.
Stack cake layers on plate, spreading pudding mixture between layers.
Microwave chocolate and butter in medium microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1 min. or until butter is melted; stir until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended. Add sugar and remaining milk; mix well. Spread over cake. Refrigerate 1 hour.
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Having a place to go — is a home. Having someone to love — is a family. Having both — is a blessing.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
4339. for all Mother In Laws, if we’re married we have one
4340. for cake and pudding a delicious combination
4341. for my SIL and DIL’s, a wonderful addition to my family
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
