Wednesday...in the Kitchen!

Guess who likes blueberry muffins? Yep, Caleb does! He's finally getting a hold of the "table food" thing. Slowly. But he's getting there! :) (And look, he's even signing All done! :) )
Most of Wednesday I spent in the kitchen getting ready for our dessert social for that night. On Tuesday night, I had David make the first batch of homemade strawberry ice cream. Wednesday morning, the baking began. I made 2 homemade buttermilk pound cakes, 2 batches of cheesecake bars, and 2 batches of brownies. In the afternoon during naptime, I had to wash, cap, and slice ALL those baskets of strawberries that we had picked the day before.
It was totally worth it though. Everyone LOVED it - I brought some vanilla ice cream as well and some whipped cream. The whole idea was that people could build their dessert however they wanted - and top it off with fresh picked strawberries! It was great just to be able to fellowship and to let them know how much David and I appreciate them! They are such a support for us - they totally caught hold of David's vision on this concert and were with him 100% of the way. The music pastor gets alot of complaints along the way. Lots of people that don't like what he's doing, what he's singing, what songs he's picking, what instruments are playing, etc. He hears along of complaints (everyone does I suppose). But it means so much to us both that the choir REALLY sees and understands his heart. REALLY gets his passion for leading people in worship. So we got to love on them a little bit - and we enjoyed it!
