Titus 2:3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; that they may teach the younger women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the Word of God be not blasphemed.

A Moment with M.O.M.- Thanksgiving Traditions!

Hello Friends! 
The Wood family home is excited to celebrate another Thanksgiving with our friends! For those of you that have known us through the years, you know that it's this time of year when I ask you to pull our your recipe books and share! Having lived so many places throughout the years (17 moves the last time I counted) this small tradition has helped the children, and myself, not feel so far from 'home'. For those of you that have shared with us, you have no idea how much you blessed us- thank you! For our new friends, we are eager to hear what your favorite holiday dish, drink or potpourri is! We would love to have each of you join us at our Thanksgiving Table so please jot me a note and send your favorite recipe to our email at: momentswithmom (at) gmail.com 

I will be posting photos of the children making the dishes that are shared along with the recipe on the blog. If you have a story behind your dish, please share that with us too. We love to learn more about our friends and celebrate what is important to you too. 
Because of His Love, 


  1. Here are several I found in my mommas cookbook :)

    - cheese ball
    ingredients :: 1 large philedelphia cream cheese
    1 cracker barrel sharp cheddar cheese ~ grate
    1 can pimentos
    1 chopped green onion

    mix together and roll in walnuts chill 1 hr (do not use electric mixer)

    - russian tea

    Ingredients :: 2 cups powder tang
    1 cup sugar
    1/2 cup instant ice tea
    1 3 oz pkg lemonade
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon cloves

    mix all together, serve hot

    these are musts in our house every year at this time :)

  2. Thank you for sharing! This year we will giving a 'thank you' gift to one person who's recipe wins as our family favorite. Perhaps that person will be YOU! :-)

  3. This is one of our family's traditions at the holidays. We call it Pink Fluff. One year my poor Mom made the mistake of trying something different and it was known as "the Thanksgiving without Pink Fluff"
    Pink Fluff (I am sure it had a normal name but this is what we have called it since I was a kid;-)

    Lg. container Cool Whip
    8oz. cream cheese
    16oz. frozen sliced strawberries or 14oz. can cranberry sauce
    14oz can mandarin oranges, drained
    2 bananas sliced

    Beat together the cool whip and cream cheese. Fold in fruit. Pour in to foil lined muffin tins or into a pretty bowl. Freeze over night. If you put it into a bowl make sure to get it out 20-30 minutes before serving.

  4. This looks fun and yummy! Thank you for sharing!!
