Anyway, he's been calling us almost every evening at dinner time.
So everyone who has called us this week hasn't heard the answering machine...
They've heard a VERY EXCITED "hello" from a breathless mom who has sprinted across the kitchen to beat 3 kiddos to the phone. : ) My hubby says he wants that kind of a reception when he calls now. ; )
And then whoever it was, heard these deafening whispers in the background:
"Is it Zach?"
"I want to talk to him."
"It isn't Zach???"
"UGH!!!" (in unison)
We are having a little welcome home party tomorrow after church. I'm planning on killing the fatted calf for him. ~Or in this case buying fried chicken. ha ha
And I am making some of his favorite 'fixings' to go with it. Also a peanut butter pie which is a big family favorite. (see recipe below)
The kids are making him cards.
I think they could have a future at Hall*mark. ; )
"Welcome home, Zach. We are nuts about you." And it has peanuts that she drew all over it. Andrew's has a skull and crossbones on the front and it says:
"You are the greatest treasure I've ever found." Aren't those the sweet?!
Peanut Butter Pie
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
a graham cracker pie crust
1 cup of powdered sugar
8 oz of cream cheese
Mix the peanut butter, cream cheese and powdered sugar together. Add a half of the container of cool whip and mix. Put it in the pie shell and put the other half of the container of cool whip on top. If I have chocolate syrup handy, then I drizzle some of that on top and use break up a couple of Reese's*Peanut*Butter Cups on top to make it look cute. : ) Enjoy
We've missed you, Zachary!
