My boys have always been big eaters.  Add in 2-3 swim practices a week and they are truly  bottomless pits.  They wake up in the morning and the first thing I hear is “what’s for breakfast?”  As soon as they walk in the door after school it’s “what’s for snack?”  They finish swim and say “did you pack a snack?”

In My Kitchen – November 2016

It’s been another crazy month.  I don’t know if it’s just having fall birthdays, Halloween, the cooler weather or what…but autumn is always very busy for us.  This month wasn’t any different.

In the beginning of the month we had my parents visiting.  They came to watch the boys while Josh and I went to Charlotte for the night and then come home and celebrate Jack’s birthday a little early.  Things changed when Hurricane Matthew came to town.  Our night out was cancelled, but we certainly still celebrated Jack’s birthday.

We didn’t suffer any major damage from the hurricane since we are well inland.  Just some heavy rain and high winds at times.  We had a plum tree uprooted which we managed to get up again and staked it do the ground, fingers crossed it stays up and healthy.  The power flickered a few times and went out while I had pumpkin muffins in the oven.  We finished breakfast by candle light.
