Also...

I had a birthday a few weeks ago...

I was very spoiled by my family... an ice cream cake, a whole box of books to read, and a date day with my hubby.  It was wonderful.  We had two meals away from the kids, went to the movies and saw The Help ( which was wonderful... as is the book... highly recommend both!)

This is what I have been up to, besides the regular stuff.

 I set up a little sewing corner in the basement so I could put my sewing stuff out and leave it out.  I have been puttering away in my spare time and loving it!  This was for baby Leo... I say was because after I took this pic I got fussy and was going to go over the stitching in one corner... it got jammed in my machine and in getting it out I ripped a tiny  hole in it.  I was not impressed.  Since then I have purchased a few more onesies that I am going to embellish for the little boys and girls in my life!
 Jammie pants for the kids out of leftover flannel.  These are for Reese.
Refrigerator bread and butter pickles.  So easy and delicious.  A good way to use some of my mountain of cukes.  Recipe garnered from http://mennonitegirlscancook.blogspot.com/2008/08/refridgerator-bread-and-butter-pickles.html
I also have blanched, bagged and froze bags of beans, peas and lastly shredded zucchini.   Next up will be our apples which are thisclose to being ready.

Wow Meghan, you've been busy. Your bread & butter pickles look great. I haven't made them in years. My plan was to do it this year but we've been busy this Fall prettying up the house. Do you put yours in ice cream pails or seal them in jars?

Sandy... I try and keep busy so the kids don't drive me crazy!!!!
I just put them in a pail in my crisper. They should last at least a month in there. I made another batch of cafe pickles that I sealed up for winter. We aren't huge pickle eaters in this house so I didn't go too crazy. Now I'm on to spaghetti sauce!!
