serve day.

May 3rd | older posts

today was serve day with our church. there were many projects to participate in, but made cookies and took them to the local fire station. right after breakfast we go to work.

the boys were very helpful rolling the dough and ‘painting’ the egg whites on top. matty is counting the cookies in this picture.

david made sure to slam a few cupbaords just to keep things lively!

then we packaged them up and attached a thank you note.

we met friends at the fire station. when we knocked, nobody answered, so we had to wait a bit. we thought maybe they were out fighting a fire!? I love how lily is *carefully* holding her plate of brownies :)

matty fully expected the firemen to be in full gear with red hats and everything. he was very disappointed to hand the cookies over to some guy in navy chinos and a tee shirt. oh well! david had fun exploring the fire station. this is the back end of a very old fire truck. now I am ready to put the boys to bed early and watch a movie!

    What a neat service project… bet the firemen were tickled! I finally got around to blogging about my necklace! I’m loving it. My husband and kids won’t let me wear the other one until Mother’s Day… I guess that’s fair!! :)

    At least you got further than we did when we dropped off the cupcakes we made at the AGPD. We didn’t get past the receptionist and didn’t see a single police person. It was kind of awkward actually but it was a good lesson to the kids that sometimes you don’t get to see the results of what you do, you just do it out of appriciation with no expectation of getting even a thank-you in return. Maybe we should have called first …
