The one "for Hev'ly Fad-er"

A few Sunday nights ago we had a FHE about tithing. The kids decorated "Tithing Boxes" to keep 1/10th of their money in.

(btw, check out the spot's on Drew's face! Yuck! Halle broke out with them the next day but we never figured out what it was...)
We ate a delicious (they taste similar to churros), very easy dessert called:


1 8 oz. pkg cream cheese
1/3 c sugar

1 c sour cream
2 t vanilla

vegetable oil

10 (8 inch) flour tortillas

Cinnamon and sugar, mixed together

Ideas for optional toppings: vanilla bean ice cream, whipped cream, ice cream syrups (strawberry, chocolate, caramel)

Beat cream cheese till smooth. Gradually beat in sugar. Blend in sour cream and vanilla. Chill for at least 1 hour. Lay 1 tortilla flat, spoon 2-3 T of filling onto tortilla. Fold bottom edge of the tortilla up over filling. Fold sides inward and then roll up remaining tortilla. Fry in (a little) oil until browned. Roll in cinnamon and sugar mixture. Eat hot, or cold, with favorite topping.


Then Kev and I sat in a happy-daze watching our kids play. Drew is such a good sport- Halle always makes him dance. I love the pic where he's spinning her around. What a little heart breaker.

And as it always happens when Kev's around, the night ended with him turning into a jungle gym; tickling, wrestling, and all sorts of craziness. This particular FHE included walking on the ceiling!

Anyway, this Sunday the kids brought their "tithing boxes" to church with them. After filling out the tithing slips, Drew stormed into the bishop's office, threw the envelope at him and said,

"Here ya go, Bishup.

It's for Hev'ly Fad-er."
Halle rolls her eyes, and with a smile says to me:

"Drew's sooo cute, Mom!

I can't even handle it!"
And I can feel just a little of how much we will miss our kids when they've grown.
