Good Morning Everybody Out There

Hope all of you are okay today. This is the hubster, don't worry I'm not going to get that old gal's dander up, she asked me to put this up on the blog.
  My gal is sick, had a hard time last night so we went to the ER. She wanted me to tell you she's postponing that giveaway she put up until she's better, because she's not letting me muck it up (that's my gal!) 
  She said she'll add the other stuff and start over, so ya'll stay tune, ok!
I'm tempted to act up, but I'll be good cause Loretta loves this here blog thing! Maybe when she ain't sick, I'll come on back and steal some time, heh? Don't tell her I said this! Heeheeee!

Ya'll take care and love your pets cause Loretta show love her's, too much! Bye now

The Hubster,

Baked From My Kitchen

Good Wednesday to you all!

  Yeah, I've been in the kitchen experimenting with baked goods. My sisters did a conference call trying to find out if we were going to do something different this year, because of the children's input. 
  It was the same day that I was in the kitchen trying out recipes. I only baked two. I think I am going to do the fruitcake cookies and these below... they are a drop cookie...cranberry and walnut.

I only made a batch...Hubster, my Mom and Daun, my oldest daughter, where here when they came out of the oven...they didn't stay very long, especially when the coffee was done! LOL.

Hubster was at home four days last week and he asked for some homemade bread. If you're looking at the pics, notice how the top of the loaf is brown. Well, he like it this way...with a crust. Just before I removed it from the oven, I rubbed butter on top, then allowed it to brown crisp. Needless to say, it filled the house with that homey aroma that you get only from freshly baked bread!

I love baking bread and all the other yummy desserts that my family enjoy. Hope you have a Happy Wednesday and the entire week!

Best and Warmest Wishes,

Family Traditions One Year Giveaway!

   Family traditions create positive feelings in a family, right? Most traditions are handed down from generation to generation; others come from cultural or ethnic heritage.
  With my strong Frence-Creole and Choctaw, etc., family is steeped in traditions. Our traditions have meaning that is special to our family and create feelings of warmth and closeness. By our spending time together in a fun and special setting, the family has grown close and, the more our traditions are observed, it brings us even closer together; it promotes a sense of belonging, safety and assurance in this hectic and ever-changing world. 
   Our family traditions gives all of us something to look forward to.
The adults are just as excited as the children! This time of the year we have so much to do! Each year, as the children and grandchildren grow older, they want to add their ideas to our growing list of things to do. Here are some pics of my family at our  gathering the first of this week.

  Some of our activities are: Games, touch football, music, a family movie and photo sessions. The first day together, we have breakfast; lunch is Gumbo and all the trimmings. Then we all put on a talent show for our 82 year old mom/granny! She also has a day when we bring her chocolate covered cherries and Biscotti...she loves them! 
  Our baking/cooking day, we bake fruitcakes and fruitcake cookies, other cookies for the kids, pies, cakes, etc. The children have time set aside for their gifts. Our large traditional meal is cooked and served...including invited company, we have a huge crowd!
  Our bonfire is to celebrate is a huge affair that ends with fireworks! We are all together from a week to two weeks when the last ones pull out for their long drive home.
  Our mom is very pleased and will talk about the event for months! We are truly blessed to have her with us, and all of us do all that we can to take care of her!
