Handed Down Heaven....



My Grandma H used to make Tea Ring each year during the Holidays! It was the best tasting sweet bread that one would ever eat! I cherish the recipe that was handed down by her. Dennis graciously steps up to the plate to make this goodness each year! Yesterday our family had signed up for fellowship hour at church...and Dennis decided we should share this wonderful tasting bread with our church family! He and Taylor woke up early on Saturday am, and spent the whole day making 6 "tea rings" from scratch! Our friends Doug and Joy have a double oven, so when it was time to bake, off to their house we all went!


The bread turned out fabulous, and tasty as I was told! Unfortunately, I was not able to eat any as Friday afternoon I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, with my blood sugars in the 400's! Just as I thought my back was progressing, and life would be less complicated, we were hit with this. I just have to pray that Our Maker will get me through this, as He has done so many other times in our life!


So, needless to say, our family will be undergoing a major lifestyle change. The worst temptation is all the "goodies" during this time of year! We will all learn to eat more healthy, which is a good thing! Today my afternoon snack was carrot sticks, which was not typically me, but will do!


We did get our tree up this weekend as well, and are trying to get into the Holiday spirit in our house! The boys want the impossible: a Nintendo Wii.........hopefully, we will be able to get our hands on one!
