How to make an ice cream cake roll

Grandma Maxine’s husband, Grandpa Devar, loved ice cream.  Despite his being a staunch believer in keeping the Sabbath day holy, he was known to occasionally sneak to the grocery store on Sunday afternoons for a carton of ice cream after hearing that the grandkids were coming over.  Grandpa died at age 91. just six month ago and as far as we all can figure, the last thing that Grandpa ate before he died was a big bowl of ice cream.  Would Grandpa have liked this ice cream roll?  Definitely.

How to Make a Little Girl's Dress out of a Men's Shirt

My Aunt Amy cross-stitched a picture of the temple for my Grandpa Richard.  She framed her picture with fabric from a plaid shirt that Grandpa used to wear.  It was a beautiful work of art and reminded me so much of my grandpa.  Here is another fun use for an old shirt--a little girl's dress.  I have an old shirt of Brians, and I have the instructions for the dress.  Now all I need is a little girl.  I am so excited that in less than 2 months, I will have a little girl—a little grand daughter!
