Our Family Motto

We, the Peterson Family:

Promise to be honest in all we do and say,

Stand tall and righteous throughout each day.

Serve around the world and in our home,

Give thanks for blessings we’ve been shown.

We’ll work as a team with joy and love,

And honor our Heavenly Father above.

Week 1

Week 1: It’s a new year!

*Suggested Reading*

Items needed this week:

· Empty Coffee Can

· Decorative Paper (like wrapping paper or plain paper that you can draw on)

· Black or very dark construction paper

· Glitter

· White glue

· Old newspapers

· A straw (optional)

· Markers or Crayons

Snack Suggestion: Monkey Bread


  • canned biscuits
  • butter or margarine
  • sugar or brown sugar (I usually use brown)
  • cinnamon


Cut or tear the biscuits into 2-4 pieces. Layer all ingredients, in order, in a meatloaf pan (for more than 2 cans use a shallow baking pan so that the middle will get cooked). Press into pan slightly (you don't want to mash all the pieces together but you don't want it too loose).

Bake for 10-20 minutes at 400-425 degrees (time and temperature are approximate, check periodically and be sure the center gets done). Pull apart and eat.

Other ingredients to try: chopped nuts, honey, maple syrup. Or, for a non-sweet bread, use flavored butter such as garlic butter and leave out the sugar, cinnamon, etc.
