Odds and Ends

Mr. P-Diddy

Shelby making a tower
The girls before church one morning. I decided to cut bangs on Shelby, so we had to get a picture.

Fall Party

Shelby sitting on the swing waiting for someone to come and push her at the family fall party. Preston decided that he was brave enough and went down this slide all by himself. First time he had ever gone on one with out it being a "tube" type slide. I was a little worried, but he did great!

It's broken.

Shaun broke his leg 3 weeks ago at the chariot races in Preston. He was helping a friend with his team and the next thing he knew the horse had kicked his leg. Well he walked on it all day and got home about 5. He asked if he should go to the hospital because he wondered if it was broke (mind you he passed 2 hospitals on the way home). I told him YES go! That is why we have insurance. Well and hour later the door opens and he comes in on crutches and in a boot. He broke his fibula. So he is home for at least another 3 1/2 weeks in a boot. He can't go to work because he has to wear steeltoe boots and that is kind of hard when you are in an aircast boot. Thank goodness for disability checks.

The kids stay home to, since he his home. Preston and dad hang out all day why the girls are at school. It has been nice not having to wake the kids up at 5:30 in the morning to take them to neighbors. It is an adjustment, but we are getting through it. I think Shaun will be ready to go back to work though.

Eggnog French Toast

I got this recipe from the Taste of Home newsletter and we tested it out last night for dinner. The kids LOVED it! But they LOVE Eggnog. Shaun loves French Toast, but doesn't like eggnog, but he ate it, he said he would rather just have normal FT though. I really liked it to, but wouldn't want to have it everytime I made FT. It is a good change to have every once in awhile, like during this time of year when you can buy eggnog.

Hear is the recipe, try it out and let me know how your family likes it. I did make a few changes and I have noted them in ( )

Eggnog French Toast

8 eggs (I used 10 because I only had 2 eggs left)
2 cups eggnog
1/4 cup sugar (did not put in the sugar, my kids get enough)
1/2 tsp vanilla or rum extract (I used 1 tsp of vanilla)
Maple syrup
Optional: Powdered sugar

In a bowl, beat eggs. Add eggnog, sugar, and extract; soak bread. Cook on greased hot griddle until golden brown on each side, cooked through. Butter, add syrup and dust with powdered sugar if desired.

My Grandpa

My Grandpa Munns passed away in September. His birthday is tomorrow and would have been 92 years old. He was such a great man, he grew up in Garland and farmed all of his life. He served honorably during World War II. He was born and died in the exact same room. I am so glad that my kids got to know him.

Some of my cousins: Josi Munns, Me, Melissa Wood, Darbie Redfor, Shelly Vause, Amber Nessen, Megan Chander, and Amanda Maughan. It was so nice to see everyone, some of my cousins were able to fly in to be here, which was great to see them and catch up.
