May 23rd means one thing in our house...

(evidently, it means the same thing for MANY of my facebook friends as well...Happy birthday Y'all)
So, in honor of the birthday boy, I thought I would post 17 things that make him a joy and a blessing....these are just the first things I thought of...if I were to do this next month, I am sure it would be a DIFFERENT list!!!!

1. He trusts in Christ as his Saviour
2. He is seeking the Lord's direction in his life
3. His smile/dimples are ADORABLE!
4. He is very generous!!!
5. He is teachable
6. He is very outgoing
7. He has started cooking!!!!! HUGE blessing!
8. He is a computer techy guy...very helpful for this computer dork!!!
9. He finds all the deals for the things we need to get...great at researching!
10. He has a cool fashion sense that is all his own!
11. He is trustworthy
12. He is friendly
13. He has an expressive face that I find is irresistible!
14. He is helpful
15. He is funny
16. He is approachable
17. He is patient

And, in honor of this boy, who doesn't prefer cake...the recipe for the Scotcheroos we made for him...comes out of our OLD church cookbook


1 c. corn syrup
1 c. sugar
1 c. peanut butter
6 cups rice krispies
1 c. chocolate chips
1 c. butterscotch chips

Bring Corn syrup and sugar to a boil. Add peanut butter, stirring til smooth. Stir in Rice Krispies. Press into a 9 x 13 pan.
Carefully Melt chocolate and butterscotch chips. Pour over the tops of the rice krispie mix. Cut into squares.
* note...if you let the corn syrup mixture boil too long, you will NOT be able to eat these...we learned that through a soccer snack mishap!
Also, if you chill these, you will have a hard time eating them...we learned this lesson last night...
Enjoy! This is one of our FAVORITE treats!
