The Holidays. And Updates.

I actually REALLY love Thanksgiving and Christmas! Although it is extremely stressful and often a lot of money is dumped into these holiday's , I think that it is all worth it! I really like Thanksgiving the most though. My grandma always makes the best food on the planet, so you can imagine how Thanksgiving is :) I am in charge of making yams. I slow cook them at 250* for about 4-5 hours or 200* all night. Then I scoop the meat out of the yams and put them in a separate pan then make a softball caramel and drizzle it all over the top, along with giant marshmallows of course! Then I bake that at 350* till marshmallows are golden! It is really yummy and you should try it!

In other new's  Andrew is the Store Manager at 5 Buck Pizza and it will work out really nicely for us in the next few weeks. Andrew is also still going to school full time for Business Management... So 5 Buck should look really good on his resume after college.
I am still watching our niece Sarah Wednesday, Thursday and Friday's. I still stay at home as I plan to always do, which as always means cooking, cleaning, teaching, bathing, doing laundry etc.etc. But I LOVE it. And I like to think that I am good at it haha so it works for me!
Jocey turns 2 next month! Can you believe it?? CRAZY! She can talk in full sentence's, she is extremely helpful, she is very kind to everyone and she now likes me to feed her like a baby with cuppy.... which is weird because she has only ever had like 2 bottles.

Anyways that is a little update on our family!


  1. I love reading the updates about your little family! You are amazing!

  2. Oh, and I LOVE yams and want to try making them the way you do. YUM!!
