Fruit Pie

Let's just say, there are some weekends that your plans for the weekend go totally out window. This was one of those weekends. Friday night, Tyler was on a kick - he wanted to cook something. He kept saying he wanted to cook fruit pie. I asked him what the ingredients were. This is the response I get - peach juice from a quart of peaches, apple juice and water. Mix it up mommy, we bake it for a while, and we'll have fruit pie. I convinced him instead to make brownies and rasberry jellow (from mixes from our local bulk food store) and put sprinkles on the brownies (again from our local bulk food store):

Saturday morning, we went to the pancake breakfast that the local Ruritans put on at our local high school with some friends, then it was off to Lowe's to buy a water heater and water softner. Then all day was spent installing these items. My parents came down to help install the water softener, and Mom left with several quilts that need the bindings handsewn down. So I didn't get anything done on Saturday (amazing how many things you need hot water for, which we didn't have for a while putting the heater in).

Sunday I spent the morning cleaning, and then we did a quick run to the outlet mall not 10 minutes away to try and find the kids green shirts for St. Patrick's day tomorrow - no such luck, but Jessie found the cutest green and white camo pants (at Children's Place for 99 cents). Tyler has a green polo shirt from Gap that I got at Goodwill on Friday during lunch for $1, so they will both be set.

And now I'm off to finally get a little sewing done. We also penned up a heifer this weekend and cleaned out the cow shed and barns - we have lots, and lots and lots of mud (comes with 45 degree temps and melting snow) and she is so close to calving.. . I'd rather pen her up for a few days to make sure there are no problems, than have to be wading through mud up to you know where to help her out.

Hope everyone had a good weekend.
