New Recipe: Cornmeal Pancakes

Cornmeal Pancakes
This recipe is a favorite at our house.
The Stud makes them SO well; they're one of his specialties.
He discovered the recipe when we were first married.
It's been a hit ever since!
Here's how we do it:
Here's a visual rundown of the process:
And here they are in all their melting butter, warm syrup-y goodness.

The Moving Wall

This is awesome.
A once-in-a-lifetime experience for many.
A replica of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington D.C. is here in the West Valley.
"The Moving Wall" is in Goodyear starting at noon on October 2 through noon on October 6. It's located just west of Starpointe Residents Club at 17665 W. Elliot Rd in Estrella. It's open 24 hours a day with tour guides available from 8am - 8pm.
And it's free.
I had the privilege of seeing the actual Wall when I was in 8th grade.
My mom asked me to find the name of a young man who had grown-up in her home town.
My teacher, Mr. Jarvis, used his cane to point to the name.
Leslie Don Moses
Row 12E, line 23.
That visit made an impression on me.
The Moving Wall will hold a series of ceremonies, including:
  • Opening Ceremony – October 3 at 9 a.m.
  • POW/MIA remembrance and candlelight vigil – October 4 at 6 p.m.
  • Sunday sunrise prayer service – October 5 at 6:30 a.m.
  • Closing ceremony – October 6 at 9 a.m.
Please take advantage of this opportunity to remember why we're free;
to show your children what it means to be patriotic;
to thank God for heroes.

Halloween "Mummy Wrap Race" Game

My Boys love Halloween!
Here's a simple, hilarious game you can play with your little spookies.
 All you need is toilet paper and some volunteers.
Teams of 2 work best.
The object of the game is to wrap your "mummy" first.
The Boys and their cousins were cracking up the whole time!
Breaking out was just as fun!
"Are you my mummy?"
