I did make two buttermilk pies but took them to someone else. I hope they were good. You always have this little doubt that they are good when you take them to someone else and don't get to "taste test" them for yourself.
I put foil over this one to get the crust from getting too brown to quickly and part of the nice browning on top came off with the foil. Learned a lesson: Lightly spray with oil before putting the foil over the top!
When Harper came along we bought our own nice baby bed for the upstairs guest room where she sleeps when she stays with us. I never did buy a bumper pad set mostly because the nice ones are extremely expensive and I didn't like the little "characters" on the cheaper sets. But as I was out shopping the other day I found a beautiful set on sale and I decided with Hollis coming, we needed it!
It is a creamy beige and made out of the softest material ever...I think they call it minky or something like that. It had the bumper pads, the skirt, matching sheet and a wonderful blanket!
Harper will get to use it Christmas and then we'll see about Hollis later!
We have season tickets to the Razorback basketball games as well as the football games so we went to our first game the night before Thanksgiving. I love going to the basketball games because our parking place is near the arena and you just get in and get out so much easier than the football games!
This is not a very good picture, but the Duggars of the "19 and Counting " fame were sitting just behind us in a box. I have never really watched their show but they are the nicest-looking family and their kids behave themselves very nicely!
Well, it seems I just put out my "Fall" decorations and now it is time to pack 'em up and move up out!
Yesterday it was so very cold and rainy and since we had no where to go (Thank you Lord) Hubs put up the Christmas tree and I started decorating the mantle and coffee table. The tree is not done yet but I did get a couple of things done. This is the earliest I have EVER decorated for Christmas!
We will have all our family here for Christmas! I am so looking forward to that!
So far I have done all white, silver and green this year. I think it's sort of a clean, simple look!
I need to get busy and get my tree done. What do you think of it so far?
