So you can giggle with each other:
~ like when she asks you WHY you said to stir the sloppy pumpkin canned milk mixture slowly, right before she SPLASHED some mixture on herself......and then slowed down.
~or when you tease her for being slow, and she reminds you that she is really not that slow, but that she is stopping every 5 seconds to do something for YOU.
(like take a picture of your new crust method on the pumpkin pie in the cast iron pan; explained: methodically designing crust below edge because pies will be transported in layers, stacked: pie, cookie sheet, more pies...)
So she can learn new skills:
~like how to take the shell bits out of the egg yolks
~how to braid pie dough and make decorative crusts (her idea)
So she gets to know herself better:
~like that she really does have a preference after-all about how to decorate the pies
~like that she really CAN be efficient and just a little bit faster after all
~like that SOMEDAY SHE WILL BE ABLE TO DO THIS ALL BY HERSELF, for her own family..............SOMEDAY
And she learns what a special time this is, and how blessed we are to have each other.
So she will have another wonderful memory!
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise: be thankful unto Him and bless His name.
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
Thank you for letting me share.
