I like to treat myself at this time of year. One thing that I particularly like is Ben & Jerry's ice cream, so I bought a pint of Cherry Garcia the other day, ate a bowl full (picked the chocolate and cherries out of the rest of the container) and then gave it to Luke.… Continue reading Surprise
We had Thanksgiving dinner with our good friends yesterday. We were welcomed with open-arms and hearts, and we could feel it.
