I grew up in a very religious family, and Lo Gung and I are trying to impart that tradition to our children as well. In 2011, my mother asked for just one thing for her birthday, from all 5 of her children. She wanted all of us to read our scriptures, every single day, for the next year. The 365 days were officially up in December, but daily scripture study is a habit are trying not to break.
In our house, I’ve tried to incorporate this tradition from my family with a fabulous tradition from Lo Gung’s family as well – nightly “fruit snacks”! Growing up, Lo Gung’s mother would serve a plate of cut up fruit to her family to eat before bedtime.
Each night, after the kids have changed for bed, we gather back around the dinner table and listen to scriptures on my phone while I peel fruit for the munchkins.
This time of year, Cuties are our nightly treat. By this time, I’ve peeled so many…I decided to get a little more creative.
I call this one Orange Lily. Nice, yes?
