Sign's of Thanksgiving

We have been having a pretty fun week. Today the kids start a 4 day weekend. We have a lot of fun plans. This past week we finally got around to picking our pomegranates. We were going to do it a few weeks ago. But Pomegranates love a few cold nights and when i saw it in the forecast i decided to wait. I'm glad i did because they were perfect. Me and Brielle and Bristol set out while the boys were in school and Jason was at work to pick all the trees. We had a fun time.

Not to bad for a morning work

 While I juiced the pomegranates, the kids husked the corn and Baxter took picture's. I will be making jam this weekend and have a great recipe all share.
 Bristol wanted right in on the action

 We built our first fire not that it was that cold but in was fun. We sat and enjoyed Pine nuts and Egg nog around the fire. I love this time of year.
