then come back here for the update:

2/20/2015: UPDATE: Four years later, the family tradition continues, only this time it is my son Scott showing my grandson (his nephew) Noah how to bake Grandma Mursch's Orange Cookies. (Go here for the recipe and history) Pictures to follow. This is especially poignant because Noah's father, our son Matthew, passed away last year after a four year battle with cancer. Noah is now 15 years old, and this was his first airplane trip to visit us all by himself...and to spend some much needed Steiner family bonding time with his uncles and grandparents. My thanks to his wonderful mother Nicole for sharing him with us this past week. What a blessing and time of healing this was for all of us.
One of the things on Noah's bucket list for this week was to learn how to bake Orange Cookies with Uncle Scott teaching him, Yes, he did some fun "manly" things with his uncles too, like riding every roller coaster ride at Busch Gardens...some even twice....
|I can't believe our "little grandson" is now as tall as his uncles (6'1") and almost as tall as his Grandpa...|
His daddy Matthew was a little bit taller at about 6'3"...but Noah is almost there...and definitely still growing...
|First, Uncle Scott explains to Noah the importance of careful measurement and mixing things in order...|
|Then he shows him the secret information: FOLDING in the buttermilk correctly...|
