Granny's Thanksgiving Stuffing

Well it's Thanksgiving time! This is my favorite time of the year. September through January. And it is already almost over. For Thanksgiving this year we will be spending it with my family.

My mom who is the best cook I know makes THE BEST stuffing ever! I know that Aunt Valerie makes this recipe and I am guessing that my other Aunts (Aunt Nan & Aunt Marcie) make it as well. She got the recipe from my granny who was another really good cook (I think my mom probably learned a lot from granny because she has a lot of good recipes from my granny). Well my mom decided that this year one of us girls needs to make the stuffing. I guess it is time for the next generation to learn how to make it. Michelle who cooks just as good as my mom decides because I am at home I get to make it. Ugh! I am a little nervous about the whole thing. I bought bread last week and already started drying it. I am heading out to the grocery store today to buy the rest of the ingredients! I hope it turns out ok! Wish me luck! Pray for me... Sprinkle good luck dust on me....

Out of the mouth of Drew...

So last week Andrew got a Ding Dong for reading his scriptures for the month of October. As he was eating it we started talking and I told him I didn't like chocolate and I thought Ding Dongs were "Yucky." He then asks, "How do you know mom?" "Have you tried it." Nope! "Well you don't know unless you try it."

Friday we had our date night and we dropped the kids off at our friends the Little's. When we got home I was talking to the kids about what they did. Did they have fun? What did you eat? Well Drew starts telling me. Then he tells me had something with cheese in it. I asked him what it was. He told me to guess. Hot dogs? Nope. Corn Dogs? Nope. Mac and Cheese? Nope. Cheese Crisp? Nope. Finally I tell him, "I give up, you tell me what you had." He then tells me, "Your s'posed to never give up mom, never give up."

What a wise boy I have.

And for all my Globite Friends...

As we were getting ready to leave for church today I am hollering at him to come downstairs. He tells me, "Hold your chonies!"

Riding the Quad

I was going through our pictures and found this today. This is at my parents home. Jaedyn and Andrew LOVE going to Grammy & Grandpa's. And they love to ride the quad. Their cousin Mimi, who Jaedyn thinks is the bee's knees, was riding the quad with us.

Happy Halloween

We had a lot of fun for Halloween. I took the kids in to see Kyle at work on Halloween and he got to parade them around the office and show them off. Then that night we made pizza and went Trick or Treating around the neighborhood. Last year it was so busy in our neighborhood, everyone ran out of candy, including us. This time we were prepared, but it was a much slower night and a little more calm. Jaedyn dressed up as a pirate and Andrew was a "Choo Choo Train Driver." They had a lot of fun. We handed out candy and then left to go Trick or Treating. When we came home Jaedyn was so tired she went straight up to bed and Andrew and Kyle and I stayed up to hand out candy. I think he had a lot of fun. Well it is time to put the decorations away till next year. I am going to have to do this while the kids aren't around because I know they will get upset.
