that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed.

Let's Play Some Games!

 I thought that I would share some games that we love playing. The first is Yahtzee Jr. It is a great game that all our younger kids enjoy. I like it too, because it is easy for the kids to understand.
 Pop The Pig is a GREAT game. Even Mommy and Daddy enjoy this game. Real easy for the younger kids, and fun for the adults too. You feed the pig burgers and whatever number the burger has on it, you push the pigs head. With every push, his belly gets bigger until it "pops". We don't play by the rules...just made it fun, so all the kids hope that the pig will pop on their turn.
 This is another exciting game. The kids LOVE it, and again it's a game that both the kids and parents enjoy. But watch out...the whale will splash you!
This game is SO MUCH fun! My husband, I and our oldest son and younger son enjoy this game. And there is a 6 year difference between our boys. We even got Grandpa and Grandma to play with us.  :)

Making Salt

 When my husbands parents were here, we went to visit the salt factory and made some salt. We were given pots with all the ingredients added, and we stirred and scraped the pot as the salt formed.
                         You can see the salt starting to form on the sides of the pot.

 Once we were finished stirring, we took a spoon and smashed the salt and made it smooth.
 We were given these delicious salt rice cakes to taste our salt on...very good!
       Once we finished, we put our salt into a small pottery container to take home. It was a lot of fun to make, and surprisingly relaxing as we were stirring the salt.
