Clancy got the hankering for some good ole' homemade ice cream to go with the traditional apple pie; so he rigged up what we dubbed, The Third World Ice Cream Maker! It consisted of a bucket, with another smaller bucket inside complete with lid and small window to see how the ice cream was coming, ice, salt, and his and Myles battery powered drill! It only took an hour and a half to make. Oh, I forgot to mention that he welded a "paddle" to go inside the bucket to turn the liquids inside. Because it took so long to make, Emily came up with a way to have it be "automatic". Pretty ingenious!

|Hmm, and what do we do with this part???|
We really did miss having the Beatys and the Alvarezes, but it was great to have the volunteers. This year we had Sarah from Ireland, Hannah from Louisiana, Danyelle from Texas, Kayla and Laura from Texas, and their friend Daniel from Bolivia!

|Lots of food to be thankful for...|

I give thanks this year for my precious family that Rudi and I have together and also for our extended family that now numbers over 100 people!!! I am also eternally grateful for the work of Jesus Christ in my life, taking my sin and judgement from me and promising me eternal life in Heaven one day. It just doesn't get any better than that!!
Psalm 107:22 "And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing."
