Thank you Auntie Jeannie for the beautifully personalized sugar cookies. What a sweet and thoughtful gift! The kids loved the fact that their cookies spelled out their names that they asked if they could not eat them and keep them in the memory book.

“Riches I heed not nor man’s empty praise
Thou mine inheritance now and always
Thou and thou only first in my heart
High King of heaven my treasure Thou are.”
