Time to work on the house!

What to do with the soffit and facia sitting on the back porch? Best thing I could think of was to put it up where it belonged. So...after rounding up the boys to help with the service truck and air-tools, we went to work. Jane and Natalee helped hold things in place and handed us the things we needed. Jed wanted to know if he could come up and help. Negative.

It does feel good to get a project accomplished. Thanks, kids for you help!

Corn Harvest 10-10

The other day, Ada was riding with Nathan in the chopper. She looked at the corn going on the sides of the chopper, and said, "Look Dad, the corn is tickling the chopper!"

Play till you drop!

Chair Recovering

I bought this set of chairs at the trift store about 5 years ago, and of course I knew I would do something with them right away, because they looked so gross. Well, after 5 years, some kind words from my husband (I wonder if so&so was grossed out when he ate at our house and sat on that chair), and finding some fabric on clearance for $1.20, I was ready to go. I had 2 chairs to do, and it didn't take long, and I was wishing I really would have done it sooner.

Banana Sqaures

My roommate at Ricks gave me this recipe-I absolutely love it! Not healthy for the figure, though, I'd say.
Banana Squares
1 yellow cake mix
½ cup soft butter
2 eggs-----------------combine these 3, press half into greased 9x13” pan.
3 ¾ cups marshmallows-melt
2 ripe bananas-smash
1 box instant vanilla pudding-------combine these three and spread over dough in pan. Crumble remaining dough from first mix over top, bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. These taste better when cooled, if you can wait that long. (one of my favorite recipes)
