Remember the Tower of Bagel story? Well weeks ago, a month ago, something, I found this picture of the Tower of Babel, which my son was fascinated with for days. I kept the link open on the internet, and he would just stare. Somewhere along the lines I found this idea to make a tower of babel out of cake for the activity/treat of family home evening. So four weeks ago, or more, J gave his first family home evening lesson. I think I mentioned that before. His topic the Brother of Jared and family leaving Babel for the promise land. He watched the scripture movie of it a bunch of times during Monday afternoon so he could learn the story again, we used the book, and I and his dad helped, but the point is he was learning. Before it was his job to tell the story in FHE he told me the story a half a dozen times, I think he froze up when the attention was on him. Then we had a super fun activity, that I found online from an unknown source at this point. Brent thought it was a little weird that we were building the Tower of Babel out of cake.
A cake mix box at 7,000 ft can sometimes make A LOT of cake. It all depends on the humidity I guess. Last week when I make cupcakes it is suppose to make 36 instead of 24 at this altitude, and I've always had a ton of batter since moving here, until last week, I got 24. Wierd huh? All that cake on the table, came from one box.
