Grandma's Slumber Night Party 2011

The time has come around for our Grandma's Slumber Night Party we have each year. This year I think the grandchildren were extra excited to get together since we were not able to have one last year because of Grandpa's illness. For me, it is the highlight of the year.  We have different crafts, each one makes their own individual dinner, and then we watch a movie that makes us all laugh. Our theme is always God centered and full of fun! 2011 Grandma's Slumber Night Party   He Is The Light Of The World...John 3:12 One of the crafts this year was making Stain Glass Votives. Some tissue paper, glue, a votive holder and a brush are all you'll need - and the variations are endless. Over the years I kept tissue paper from various gifts.   As you can see, they turned out so cute!     We talked about how the Lord is the light of the world and how He wants us to shine His light so others can see the Lord in them.

Southern Style! Fresh Lady Cream Peas With Delicious Hot Water Cornbread {Granny's Recipe}

Growing up in North East Texas, my Mother knew several truck farmers that grew different kinds of peas in the summer.  During pea season, my sisters and I would gather in the living room with paper bags for the shells and big bowls for the peas and shell peas as we watched soap operas (yes, I use to watch soap operas (whisper) and while we sat with fans blowing on us. It's funny, back then we didn't have air conditioning and we didn't seem to be bothered by the hot summers as much as we do today. Wonder why? I remember, we even would go and get in a circle under our big tree in the backyard sometimes too and shell peas.  Oh, the memories of those days are flooding in. By the time a bushel or two were shelled, Mother would have the first pot of Lady Cream Peas (Sometimes called Zipper Cream Peas) already cooked and waiting for us to eat with some Hot Water Cornbread to go with them, and maybe a slice or two of homegrown tomatoes and onion. We often put

Old Fashioned Hot Water Cornbread {Granny's Recipe}
