Fun Day

Today Olivia and Julie had their friends, Dixie and Candy to spend the night. They made lemon ice box pie for our dessert. The recipe is from our dear friend from church (and an excellent cook!), Karen Clayton.

Lemon Ice Box Pie

Layer 1: Mix 1 box crushed vanilla wafers, 1 stick melted butter and 1/2 cup chopped pecans and press into the bottom of a 9x13 dish.
Layer 2: Mix 1 8oz. softened cream cheese, 1 8oz. cool whip and 1 cup powdered sugar. Spread on crust.
Layer 3: Mix 2 cans sweetened condensed milk and 3/4 cup lemon juice. Spread on layer 2.
Layer 4: 1 8 oz. cool whip.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Sam LOVES to play with legos, or eggos, as he calls them. He builds houses and trains. Leah frequently builds things with him. Her specialty is "beds". Here is a "house" that I helped them build. Leah added beds to the middle.

Clay is spending the night at his friends' house (Parker and Carson). They were at the lake when I called Clay to ask him something. He always has lots of fun at their house. They usually wake up before 6:00 a.m. and head outside to play!
