- Hosted by Jeff and Brenda - I didn't end up getting to go to this due to a very unpleasant virus that hadn't run it's 24-48 hour course yet. It looks like I missed seeing a lot of people I would have loved to had a chance to visit with. Would love to see more pictures from the same event if you have any.

Thanks to all my kids - #1 stood in line getting the waffle maker on Black Friday, #2 shared her bestest recipe, and #3 put the two together and created a fantastic waffle.....yum
My past waffle maker was way too shallow and just took too long to make inferior waffles. This is one of those flip waffle makers like this one. Flip-Waffle-Maker These waffles are nice and thick and beautifully done. I'm so happy!!! Thanks kids!

I realize this is the third post in a row that has this geranium in it. I sure do love it and hope I'll be able to successfully winter it over again this year. I also hope to get some cuttings off it to start some new plants so I can have even more of them.

Megan was over today and.....
Zep got himself a haircut
Lots of fur left behind.
It will even out in a couple of days, but for now, he's so much cooler, and not so prone to those hot spots he keeps getting.

Remington is guarding the babydoll dressed in baby Brian's sleeper. As soon as I put it here, Remi went over, sniffed it out and layed down next to it just like she does with any baby that she gets to meet.
Sorry about the poor picture, I only had my cell phone.

Brian Thomas was born at 11:33pm at the Portsmouth hospital in Virginia on March 17th. He was supposed to wait till the 29th but the little Leprechaun decided he wanted his own birthday. We are so excited about his arrival, but will have to be content with phone and email pictures as we aren't able to go out to see him right now. He's quite a handsome little boy.

Son wanted Bierocks and Eggrolls when he came home this weekend. Since the kids don't get home often enough for me, I was happy to oblige. Daughter #1 thought it was a good idea too, so soon I was planning a big cooking day so we all could have some in our freezers as well.
Son is working on a monster Bierock, while hubby is putting anothe batch into the freezer.
We added leg to the 6 foot folding table, topped that with a piece of heavy canvas for a pastry cloth.
That added height sure did save our backs though when we were rolling out the dough and making them up.
You can see on batch of dough in the above picture. We used 3 to make 4 1/2 dozen plus the monster.
Here is the result of the Monster Bierock son made. Beside it is a normal sized bierock. This monster should easily feed 2-3 HUNGRY guys. He plans to take this one home with him!! This sucker is a full 9+ inches across and sits on a large pizza pan. There is my oven mitt in the top corner and rolling pin in the lower corner for perspective.
Then came the eggrolls - I taught the boys how to roll them up and they did a great job...it sure made quicker work of making up the 5 dozen of those.
Here are some of them in various stages: some ready to eat, some ready to cook, and others ready for the freezer.
And here's the rest of the group enjoying today's work.
oh.....and bundt cake for dessert! yum
