Just call me the chicken canner....

Well, lately I have been dabbeling in the kitchen arts.... this one is the tricky - *cue Jaws music*.... pressure canning. I have to admit I was terriefied at first... I mean it rattles on the stove like its posessed if you dont get the pressure right. BUT, I was not daunted, only cuz my mom and gramma were there holding my hand... we canned potatoes. Pictures will be following this post in a couple days... Today is chicken canning... cut up stew chickens with bones... :) ITS FUN!

Life goes on....

>Well dear friends.. its been a few days. I know I promised to be more regular, but well - ya. Thats me... Want in one hand and a wish in the other... BUT, all is not lost... :) I was wondering a few things - at one time my blog was kinda popular and then, well - life got in the way. SO many things have changed... there is now Facebook and Twitter and Pintrest.... I have been pinned and NO IDEA what the heck that ment... SO I am attempting to combine those things into one functioning blog/area/place to ramble/gather/share ideas etc. I miss the closeness of the folks that commented here - some no longer email me either and I understand why.. life changes, things change and move on.. SO, would anyone be able to help me with this? or at lesat guide me? HELP! HELP! Here is a pic of the baby that isnt a baby anymore... :) No comments:

Hello blogland, its me Heidi

WOOOOOFFFFDDDAAAA!!!!! Where has the time gone? Out the door and through my hands. Things have been so busy around here for the last 2 years that there was NO WAY I could keep up and blog about it all.... Life has really changed for us since I started this long silent blog... Mostly for the good though - some for the sad - some are still the same and thats a good thing. For the first time ever I a stay at home mom... with NO part time, full time or sometime work away from home. I LOVE IT! It leaves me so much more opportunity to be a servant to my family... which most of the time I like, but truth be told - I like a good pedicure just as much. GAH!! or really good coffee, or making my feet really cold then sticking them on my my hubbys legs in bed..ya, thats my favorite!! SO, a little update is in order after all this time. Kids are doing really well - baby is now 16 months old... frigin hard to believe! Milk Dud is in pre-k, Lispy is in 2nd grade!!!!!! and Big Son is A FRESHMAN! woofda... we are still living in the same home, but not farming at all. We dont even have a dog anymore... :( but we have a kitty that we claim. She wanders around and calls us her family - she's a hussy though -throws herself at all the male cats in the area.... Hubby calls her Heidi Fliess... he says its appropriate since its my fault we had so many kids - go figure! LOL Anyway - I am loving this phase of our life and want to share it more with all of you. SO SO SO many of you have stuck by me and continued to send me emails, gifts and encouragement... I LOVE THAT and appreciate it so so much! Well, I had better get my butt in gear. Today is laundry day - wait, everyday is laundry day... today is lets see if I can get the laundry done day.... ya, sure - lets try a differant day... today is lets bake the cookies that I bought that are in a roll from pilsbury day... that I can handle!! LOVE YOU ALL!

Little Itty bitty...

Can you say HELLO!!!!! Its been far to long since I have posted - like 5 months. BUT, here I am waiting to fill you in on all the good stuf, or not so good stuff depending on what you all like to hear.. There is SOOOOOOOOO much to say and sometimes not enough key smacking finger strength to do it in. The first big thing to fill you all in on is this...



We are no longer farmers.... wow, that hurts to say.....


<>next - Milkman is now a maintanance man...



next - the boys are ALL GETTING TO BIG...



next - I am chubby... chubalicious, chubbaluba, anything with chub in it and thats what I am!!!



SO, whats the first thing I should talk about?? The new baby that isnt new anymore -he is 6 months old or how about some pictures of everyone.. I think I will start there.. pictures.. :)

This was the first day of school this year... they are already much bigger than in this photo from a few months ago...



Milk Dud potty training...



The Milk Man with his newest son - he weighed 6lbs 3 oz.....


He was getting a little goofy after not getting much sleep the night before..


Here is our littlest man on the day we left the hospital..
I think he is pretty cute - but wow how little he was and yet big compaired to some that were there......





Now, I know you all want to see how big Milk Dud is....




He fell asleep on the floor watching me make cookies... dont mind the carpet - we need new, but REFUSE to put new in until the kids are big enough to be a little more helpful with keeping it nice....

SO, how have you all been. I have missed you all from the bottom of my heart!!!
