Little Angels

Hi everyone!  I hope you are all having a great week.  Things have been nice here.  Warm temperatures and sunshine.  I LOVE it!  I know it won’t last but it sure is nice for now.  We did build a fire yesterday and I already have one going this morning but it is December, right.  I thought I would share with you all a fun craft we did at church Saturday.

But, of course, we had to eat first.  Can you see the red striped dish in this picture?  I would have never guess what that is.  It is turnips!!  I have never seen turnips that look like that.  They were really good though.  I would like to find out the name of them.  That would be the type I would like to have next year.  The lady who brought them didn’t know anything about them.  She had bought them at a local store.  If any of you know the name of them, I would appreciate you letting me know.

A lady from our church had all these little terra cotta pots.  She painted them for us.  Actually she did all the prep work for the craft day.  All we had to do was put everything together.  I wanted to get detailed pictures for you all but once we started on them, everything went too fast.  Anyway, here is the finished product.

Aren’t they cute!  I made the red one, Grace made the purple, Julie’s is next and we all worked on the pink one.  It is for Jess.  I think they are adorable.  They are supposed to be ornaments but we don’t have our tree up yet.  As of now, they are brightening up our dining room window sill.

Well, time for us to get started on school.  I hope you all have a great day and God bless.

 

Katie’s Birthday Party

We celebrated Miss Katie’s first birthday this weekend.  Her actual birthday was Friday but we partied on Saturday.  Jess made these beautiful cupcakes for Katie.  They were delicious.

We traveled to Pikeville Hospital Sunday to see George’s Dad.  He is still in intensive care but seemed to be improving.   I talked to George’s sister today, however, and she said his mind is coming and going now.  I am so thankful that when we were there he knew us and even talked some to us.

Yesterday, my baby girl Grace, turned 13 years old.  My, my, how time does fly by.  We didn’t celebrate yet as she had a sore throat and wanted to wait.  We will be doing it on Friday.  Friday will be a big day for us.  We are butchering our spring roosters.  The Horn’s are coming over and bringing their roosters.  It will be a fun day.  Our pastor and his wife are coming to help.  They are the experts, we are novices.  I plan on making a huge pot of 15 bean soup.  Vicki is bringing drinks and making cupcakes which will serve as Grace’s birthday cake.  Doesn’t every girl celebrate her 13th birthday with a chicken butchering day.  Well, she’ll always remember it.

That’s about it for now.  We are finished with school for the day.  I cooked a beef roast on the wood stove for supper.  I added some potatoes, turnips, onions, broccoli and carrots to the pot just a fewinutes ago.  YUM!.

Enjoy your day and God bless.
