At our house the last couple of weeks....
We had a visit from our college girls and a couple of their roommates. It was fun to meet and get to know them:)
The kids have been shelling and cleaning corn so we can use it to make cornmeal.
A miracle day-Brent and Jonathan let me take a picture of them! They even smiled:)
Making pizza together Sunday after church
I've been trying to develop some skills with cooking outdoors, so I have been cooking outdoors Monday evenings. I got a sweet deal on a "Ultimate Turkey Cooker" on Craig'slist. So, I tried it out-forgot to get a picture before we dived in. It only takes about an hour to cook a turkey because is is cooking from the inside out, as well as the outside in. Pretty cool!
This was also part of my craigslist deal, so I tried it out last week. We made some stew. The rolls didn't turn out too good-they ended up on the driveway for the cats. Yes, you have to preheat the pan before you try to cook the rolls. Just sayin...
We got some snow-some of the flowers hadn't frozen yet, so it was a pretty contrast.
One of the benefits of doing homeschool-we called a recess and the kids got to play in the snow before it melted. Gotta be quick for that! :)
A Leaf Snowman;)
The little guy in his suit
Got some flowers at Lowe's for 75% off, so I've been planting pansies, johny-jump-ups, & snapdragons. They aren't minding the cold weather so far, and are doing good.
