Family Fun With Friends

Posted by on Mar 2, 2013 in Family Updates, Featured | 16 comments

With Derrick visiting from Wisconsin and Adam and Valerie nearby, Robert and Kendalyn Staddon invited “The Wallers” over for some fun. Priscilla quickly put together some home-made cheese cake that really hit the spot. Since Adam and Valerie are expecting a little baby we had to aim for foods Valerie felt up to eating. She really has been craving Mac ‘n Cheese. Adam, being quick witted added a few Macaroni noodles to the dessert making it “Mac ‘n Cheesecake.” We played an intense game of Settlers of Catan and enjoyed some great fellowship. What a blessing to have Godly friends like the Staddons and to enjoy such great fun with siblings. It is also nice to have fun evenings like this as the days roll on toward the arrival of our little Waller and Priscilla feels more and more ready for David to take a few turns carrying the baby. 🙂

Recipe: Mac ‘N Cheesecake


1.5 C. Graham crackers (We substituted some shortbread cookies left over from Christmas 🙂
1/4 C. Finely chopped walnuts
1 T. of Sugar
1/2 t. Ground cinnamon
1/2 C. Butter melted


3   8-ounce packages of cream cheese, softened
1 C. Sugar

  11. It was such a fun evening! Thank you for coming and making it fun!

  12. Can you update us on Priscilla’s sister Esther? Lots of people are very concerned and would like to know how she is.

    Praying for a healthy birth.

    • Thank you for your prayers. Esther and Priscilla talk regularly and as of a few days ago, she was doing well. No baby here yet for Priscilla or Esther. Fun though to have sisters pregnant at the same time.

      • I also hear that Susanna just had a baby! How is she doing? Have you met her new little one yet? It will be so fun for your new little guys to get together!
        That makes four new Keller babies in a row! What a blessing!

  13. How exciting for the Keller grandparents to be getting 3 grandchildren within the same year!!!

  14. So happy for Adam and Valerie! Welcome Abigail Renee Waller! We are so happy you are here! (Priscilla, we will have to talk more about the gifts! I think I can have it done in about a week! I will shoot you an e-mail!)
