Red White and Blue

Today is the 4th of July...and Shek came down bright and early dressed in his patriotic colors. I put him in charge of setting the table. He cut a few hydrangea to put on the table, and placed all the paper products in a pattern...and then smiled for the camera.
We had bbq grilled chicken, corn on the cob, broccoli salad, and hebrew beef hotdogs...and mom's new Healthy Homemade ice cream.
3 eggs separated
28 oz low fat sweetened condensed milk
12 oz fat free evaporated milk
2 Tablespoons vanilla extract
1 pinch salt
8 oz sucralose no calorie sweetener
16 cups plain unsweetened almond milk
separate eggs
beat egg whites until stiff.
add condensed milk, sucralose, evaporated milk, vanilla, salt. blend ingredients together.
Pour into freezer.  Add almond milk to fill line on freezer.  Freeze according to freezer directions.  My freezer is a 5 quart one so this recipe was designed for it.  If your freezer is smaller, adjustments to ingredients will be required.

Some friends of ours invited us over to swim in their pool while they were out of the town. When the kids heard the word POOL they were all in. So after lunch with the whole family minus Zach, (he's away leading worship at a church camp), we went swimming.
Jolie splashes!
Shek loves the floats!
 Laughter is the best medicine!
Woo hoo... I actually caught a jumpin' photo...
Dad teaches Jolie how to load the water gun and 
Splash her big brother.

We had a great 4th...hope you and yours are having fun and making sweet family memories.
