My own personal Calvin...
No, not Calvin Klein. Calvin of Calvin and Hobbes fame. Noah LOVES the Calvin and Hobbes books. He's reading at a 2nd grade + level, so he has so much fun sitting on the couch reading C&H cartoon books. I think he's picking up some of Calvin's habits as well.
The picture to the left is Noah....under one of MY good pillowcases. See, he decided he needed a ghost costume. And since my pillowcases are King sized, well, they'd work best. He was way too quiet this afternoon so I said, "Noah? What are you doing?" "Nooooooothiiiiiiiing!!" Yeah, that means he's doing something he shouldn't be doing. So David went to check on him, and found him with my pillowcase and a pair of scissors. He's just lucky it wasn't one of my favorite Ralph Lauren pillowcases!! I really did laugh later and of course, took a picture. :) And he is going without any sweets at all for a week. No popsicles, ice cream, cookies, anything. Ouch!
I made some homemade peach ice cream after church today. YUM! Texas peaches are coming into season, so we got some yesterday at Central Market. The recipe I used is below. You could use 2 cups of any fruit you like to change up the recipe! (If you use strawberries, put in a drop of red food coloring to make the ice cream pink) :)
Homemade Fresh Peach Ice Cream
2 cups whipping cream
1 cup half-and-half
1 cup sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract (REAL vanilla, not substitute)
2 cups chopped fresh peaches
Chop peaches and place in bottom of ice cream freezer container. Add all remaining ingredients on top of peaches and stir until sugar is dissolved. Freeze according to your manufacturer's ice cream freezer instructions. Place container in freezer to harden for a while.
Have a blessed Sunday!
