Little boys playing with toys!


Big boys playing with toys!

Chuck and his kids came over Saturday.  He helped Hubby with some car maintenance.  It was a fun day.  He got here about 9:00 A.M. as he was wanting to eat breakfast with us.  We had sausage and gravy, biscuits, fresh eggs, corn, canned apples and homemade waffles.  We had a good day.

Grace was having trouble with her nose piece on her glasses so we made a trip to Rocky Mount to get it repaired.  We did some grocery shopping while there.  It ended up taking most of the day.  We came home and worked on things that needed doing.  We had planned on doing school today and then taking a break for the rest of the week.  We’ll do school tomorrow instead and then break.  I love the flexibiltiy of homeschooling.

Grace put one of our freshly butchered chickens in the crockpot today to cook while we were gone.  When we got home it smelled so good in the house.  We deboned it and make chicken and dumplings.  They are delicious!!  I think I am spoiled now to having our own chickens for meat.  We plan on making stock tonight in the crockpot from the bones.  YUMMY!

Well, I guess that’s about all that is happening here.  My girls are wanting me to play a game of cards with them.  Enjoy your evening and God bless.

  1. I want to make chicken and dumplings with one of mine too! Looks like all the boys had fun on Saturday, and your breakfast sounds delicious! I don’t think I have ever cooked a breakfast that big. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and break from school! We need to do a mini Thanksgiving together next year during Thanksgiving week sometime.
