This event happened when we went to Guadalupe Christian Camp last summer. We were having a family reunion.  The girl cousins, on my mom’s side of the family, slept in the same room as us (which was seven girls!). It was almost lunch time, and we were in our room getting ready (after playing basketball). Lynn (my cousin) told us that we were eating patties and hot dogs. We did not believe her. But then Ann ( Lynn’s sister) and Grace ( my sister) made up this cute joke about it:

Ann: “Hey Grace, what are we eating for lunch today?”

Grace: “Patties and hot dogs!”

Ann: “Patties come from cows right”?

Grace: “Yes”

Ann: “They’re the things that we step on, on the road, right?”

Grace: “Well, not exactly, but they do come from cows!”

Then they laughed hysterically. When we went to eat we asked the cook what we were eating. She said, “Patties and hot dogs!” We all laughed so much! And would you believe that Lynn didn’t even know that we were eating patties and hot dogs?

It was about a year ago when Grace and I were playing with our American Girl and Life of Faith dolls. I had two girls and Grace had one. Grace’s doll wanted a sister, so Grace and I decided that they could all be sisters for a day. While they were playing, one of the doll “sisters” named Logan, fell down. It was so interesting because I was just holding a small “Bible” (It was Faith’s—Life of faith doll), and a page with this verse fell out.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”

I thought this verse was a fitting verse!
