Remember last week’s video of the Coca Cola ‘friendship machine’?!  This week is a Coke vending machine that you hug 😀


What a wonderful world we live in…what an amazing Creator we have!


A soldier who is home early surprises his wife…we love watching these videos. Though if you watch too many at one time they are sure to make you cry!



Song of the Week


The Recipe Box

Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

1/2 cup sugar

1 T. cornstarch

1/2 c. water

1 1/4 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

1 T. lemon juice

Graham Cracker Mixture:

1 1/4 c. graham cracker crumbs (about 36 squares)

2 T. sugar

1/2 t. cinnamon

1/2 c. butter, melted

Ice Cream:

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 pkg (3.4 ounces) instant cheesecake or vanilla pudding mix

1 quart heavy whipping cream

2 c. milk

2 t. vanilla

In a small saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch.  Gradually stir in water until smooth. Stir in blueberries and lemon juice. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally.  Cover and refrigerate until chilled.

In a bowl, combine cracker crumbs, sugar and cinnamon.  Stir in butter.  Pat into an ungreased 9×13″ pan.  Bake at 350° for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned.  Cool completely on a wire rack; crumble.

Whisk together all ice  cream ingredients and freeze. In a large container (like a gallon ice cream bucket), layer the ice cream, graham cracker mixture and blueberry sauce 3 times; swirl.  Freeze.  Makes about 2 quarts.

You can also layer the three parts in a spring form pan to make a ‘frozen cheesecake’ like in the picture above.  This recipe is one of our favorites!

Have any of you wished for a ‘fold’ button on the dryer, too?!




Have you had your fill of heights yet?!

via 22Words

  The photographer, Vincent Laforet, tells the story of climbing up to the top to snap this picture:

    “In 2000, I climbed to the top of the Empire State Building. It was an AWESOME experience.

The kicker is:  I didn’t have any harness… they simply didn’t bother to give me one and I didn’t need one for the most part, as I was climbing up INSIDE the antenna to get to the top (very similar to the video below)…

BUT, when I got to the top – I should of had one as I was out in the open, on a 3-foot wide crow’s nest… again with no harness… leaning on my stomach, with my shoes hooked in on the gap near the needle – looking straight down to see this image.

When people hear this story… they call me crazy.  The real scary part about the walk up – was that there were 14,000,000 watts of radio/tv waves coming from the top of the Empire State Building…my pager was going off non-stop (this was the year 2000 remember pagers?)  And then it was windy – and I’m not exaggerating when I tell you that the tower sways when it’s windy… just to add to the fun.”



Cute Quotes


The other night some of the girls were discussing going out West.  They have been looking at RVs online and were discussing which ones had enough seats for our family, etc.  Noah asked them, “So, when are we going out West?”  The girls said we didn’t know, they were just talking about it.  Ever so practically he said, “Then why are we even talking about it?”



Noah wasn’t feeling well a few days ago, and Isaiah came downstairs from where Noah was resting and said, “Can someone get Noah a dophilus?”  He was referring to some acidophilus.


 “Yankee Doodle went to town
Riding on a pony
Went to town to see if they-ey
Had some macaroni!
Yankee Doodle went to the store
to see if they had any more
Yankee Doodle da da da
To get some macaroni!”

Isaiah’s version! 🙂

    Hi seven sisters!! Thanks for some good laughs today! And that icecream – mmmmmmmm! I want to try that one!

    I haven’t read Little Lord Faunterloy, but I’ve watched an old movie of it – it is really good. Mum was reading this with me and said, ‘tell them to watch the movie!’ It’s very sweet.

    Thanks for linking to us!
    Love, Jess
