I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. We did. We honestly all have been sick, We have had a horrible cold and we almost did not go anywhere for Thanksgiving. Wednesday we loaded up on medicine and decided we would try. We headed up to Utah to my mom's. I hardly got any pictures because I was not feeling good at all. But I got a few.
Here is Baxter and Bridger helping Grandma at 600 in the morning breaking bread for the stuffing. They were still not to awake.
Some of the family. Yes this is all the picture's I got. But we did do a lot of visiting while we were up there and had some fun.
Then Thursday night Jason and I decided we would brave Walmart. We got there at 900 pm and the sale started at 1000pm. It was a nightmare. We went for one thing and did not get it. There was a mean lady in the trampoline area and it ruined the hole night. In the future we decided we might go make fun of people on black Friday but never try to shop then. It worth paying a little more for your sanity.
Bridger and Boston and Brielle have been building there own fort. They have done it all by themselves. They had fun working on it this weekend.
Brielle is a little scary up on top of it with a hammer and high heels.
They have been having lots of fun. Bridger has asked for Christmas for his own power drill. He is pretty funny.
Baxter had fun playing with the ducks.
and Bristol had fun chasing the chickens.
Jason and Baxter hung a new light above our stairs. It had a awesome gold one up there i was not to fond of. So one day while out yard sailing i came across this light it was brand new. It was silver and i wanted brown so i spray painted it. It turned out pretty good.
Jason about killed him self up there thou. One of the kids turned on the light while he had the wires and it was not pretty.
The boys also added a second story on there fort.
and we took some Holiday pictures. It was a nice break to have such a long weekend and we our all finally feeling better. Ya
We are beginning to deck the halls around here. Our house is smelling like Christmas, we have the mess of decoration's for Christmas. But we are having a great time. We have gotten 3 trees done in the Living room, family room and the office the house decorated and tonight the kids will all have a tree in there rooms and decorated. It feels good to have it done and be able to relax now and enjoy the holidays.
We have had a pretty eventful week, Brielle started in with a fever Monday, I took her to the doctor on Tuesday. He could not find anything wrong except her 103 fever. He said she must have a viral infection. The next day here it came Chicken pox's all over the poor thing. She has had the shot but still got them. Today she has finally got up and about and a little more like herself. Poor thing it has been a fun week.
I got my little reindeer up to the bar this morning and made some yummy muffins I would love to share.
They are super easy. This is all you need.
A few more picture's of my Christmas trees worse nightmare
and this little look she always gives everyone. She is so cute and fun.
Mix the cake mixes and pumkin togeater. I added choclete chips because choclete makes everything better. And if you want to add a little pumkin pie spice. I added it but you don't need to.
Grease your muffin tins
Spoon some in and bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
They are so good and easy. I like to frost them with Cream Cheese Frosting.
Yesterday I spent the morning making pomegranate Jelly. I have a great recipe and I know a few have asked for it. It is super simple. First pick your pomegranates. Next the worse part juice all your pomegranates. Juices around our parts goes for 25.00 dollars a gallon. Here is all I got this year out of ours.
Next put your lids in a pan full of water on low to heat them up
Wash all your bottles and rims.
Take 4 cups of juice and 1 package of pectin
bring to a boil, then add 5 cups of sugar, bring to a boil add 1/2 teaspoon on butter to help with the foam and boil for 2 minutes.
Pour into jars, put the warm lids and rings on them and turn them over so they will seal. Super easy and super yum. I made 6 batches and got 24 pints. I had a gallon of juice left and I froze it. It will freeze for 1 year. We use it to make ice cream that turns out super good.
