Fawn Comes to Visit

Scripture to Live By:
As a deer pants for flowing streams,  so pants my soul for you, O God.Psalms 42:1

Today a baby fawn paid us a visit.  My husband was sitting on our back porch taking a break when this deer came walking up.  I had just walked in the house.  My husband tried to get my attention by knocking on the window.  When he finally got my attention.  He ask me to bring the camera to him.  He wanted to take a picture of the fawn.  Little did we know how many pictures we would be able to get.  Here are some of the pictures we took.  The fawn literally ate out of our hands and let us pet him. He even checked out the garage we are working on.

He decides to go look at the work area.

He actually licked the bottom of a board we were working on.

My husband said he went around the house but he actually went into the garage.  We have been remodeling our garage and he checked it out.

He is coming out of the garage.

He is checking out my hostas. Deer really enjoy eating hostas plants. 

Strolling through my flower bed.

Peeking out at me from the hostas.

I am trying to get him to come to me.  He is only about 3 feet away.

He continued to tour my flower beds.  

He is so pretty.  He has been here about 15 minutes at this point.

We got him an apple to eat.  He is sampling it.  

How pretty is that?

My husband is laying in the yard taking pictures of this little fawn and he doesn't mind at all.  You can see how close he is to my husband.  

He is checking my husband out.  

I am trying to feed him an apple.

He is letting  me pet him.

I think he wants to go in the house.

He stayed about 30 minutes before he strolled back into a wooded area.  
What a special blessing to enjoy God's little creatures.

I was so excited to have him visit us and to let us enjoy him.  I just had to share him with my blog family.  
Just look at that beautiful face.

Peanutty Cookies and Cream Cookies

Scripture To Live By:
2 Corinthians 5:15-17 And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Recipe Post:
Most of our family came to visit over the holidays and whenever we get together I like to make some of their favorite recipes.  One of the children's favorite is Peanutty Cocoa Puff cookies.  I thought I would try Cookies 'N" Creme cereal since each of them like Cookies and Cream ice cream. I made a double batch since there were 18 of us.   The cookies were a big hit with them as well as the adults. They certainly do not last long around my house.  So if you would like to try them,  the recipe is as follows:

6 cups of Cookies and Cream Cereal
1 1/4 cups of sugar
3/4 cups of corn syrup
1 1/4 cups of peanut butter (I use crunchy peanut butter)

Spread out wax paper on a table about 24 inches long to lay your Peanutty Cookies and Cream cookies on as you make them.

Pour 6 cups of Cookies and Cream Cereal in a large bowl. Set aside.

 Add:  3/4 cup of corn syrup
1 1/4 cup of Sugar
Mix in sauce pan and bring to a very slight boil. 
 As soon as it comes to a slight boil remove from heat.

Then immediately add the peanut butter to the corn syrup and sugar mixture,  and mix well.

Pour peanut butter mixture over the Cookies and Cream cereal, stir quickly.  

With buttered hands scoop up a handful of mixture and form into balls.  

Makes approximately 24-30 balls, according to how large you make your balls.

Cool and serve.

Yummy! Bet you will want more than one.
