Thin Mints

One warm Summer afternoon in Cross Keys, PA, Rebekah and Elisabeth were on the back deck, wondering what they should do with the remainder of their day. Their faithful little neighbor friend Renee, soon joined them, she was holding a box of cookies, she offered each of them one. The cookies were so wonderful, that Renee […]

You Get to be the Snowball Packer!

In the winter of probably ’95, while we were living in the small town of Cross Keys, PA, we got one of the best snow storms we can remember. The faithful snow plow made it’s way down our little road and pushed every bit of that snow up against an old abandoned bus, making a […]

The… Bathroom Tree

When we were younger, there was a tree behind our house in MS that was just barely inside the woods. We would’ve promised anyone that it had a strange way of making you have to run to the bathroom! We’re not quite sure which one of us started the rumor, but we would walk to […]


Once we went to the Moss’s to play, and a few of us decided to take a walk in the cow pasture.  Soon everyone wanted to go so Daniel, Brittany, Rachel, Timothy, Shelby, Tyler, Tanner and I all went.  Tyler and Tanner were both very young.  Brittany and I were supposed to be watching them. […]

Little Sisters- or Little Servants?

When we would play in the attic at the Moss’s house, Brittany and I would always take the big side, and give Shelby and Rachel the tiny side. We found lots of wonderful things in that attic.  First, we found a mattress and a cot, then we found some pillows and a quilt.  Brittany and […]

He that Sweareth to His Own Hurt…

Not long after we moved to Mississippi  we went to see the Browns (an older couple that went to our church).  They had a farm, so they had chickens running around in their yard.  After a little bit we kids went outside and started trying to catch the chickens!  The Browns laughed and said that […]

Double Spanking

Once Elisabeth and Rebekah had both gotten in trouble and were both about to get a spanking. It was usually up to the ones receiving the spanking to decide who would go first, so Rebekah asked if Elisabeth could go first, and it was agreed that she would. Rebekah went out to wait her turn, […]

ABC Fruit Roll-ups

We were playing in the Moss’s attic one day, and we found some fruit roll ups. They had some chew marks on them, but they still looked good, so we ate them.  We did tear the chew marks off first, but after our little meal, we were somewhat afraid, so we went down and told […]

Scrapbook Night

Once Mrs. Cheryl came to our house to scrapbook with Mom, Elisabeth and Rebekah. She brought her daughter Kelsey, who was between Rachel and I in age. None of we three were into scrap-booking yet, so Rachel and I carried Kelsey off to our room to play. The scrap-bookers took longer than usual. We were […]

Bath Time!

One time (a long time ago) when Elisabeth finally decided she was too old to get a bath with Rebekah, Rebekah decided to allow Rachel and I the privilege of getting our bath with her! And… she got to make the rules. Here’s how it worked: we would all sit Indian style – Rebekah in […]
