Musings by "Jesse"

The Little Cookie Maker HelperIzzy & Ben
"Raising Children is like being pecked to death by a duck." I just came across that quote this morning and had to chuckle. Because at times, it does feel like that...pure torture! hehe Seriously, Crying and Whining and Fussing moments are really trying..especially when now that there are two pulling me in different directions! All I have to say is they are lucky that they are so darn cute.
So, Isabelle has decided to rename me for some reason. She now calls me: JESSE. o.k., kid. Lancelot's hair is everywhere! I can't stand it at all. I told Noah to build him a crate outside to live in. This is ridiculous. I love my dog, but enough is enough!
So, I made this super easy and really good CORN SOUFFLE the other day. Here's the recipe: Ingredients: 1 cup sour cream, 1 can white corn, 1 can creamed corn, 1 stick of melted butter, 2 eggs and 1 box of Jiffy cornbread mix. Salt and Pepper to taste. Mix all ingredients together and pour into a round casserole or a standard souffle crock. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes to an hour, until the edges are pulling away and look like they are forming a crust. The center may still be somewhat soft, but the top should havea crust on it.
The End.
Thinking about putting away all the thanksgiving decorations is not a big deal, but thinking about pulling out all the christmas decorations is a bit overwhelming I must say. We need to get a new christmas tree stand this year...oh and I need to get Ben a special stocking. I think I will bake sugar cookies (since I have had recent success with that) and peanutbutter balls this year. I will not strand popcorn and cranberries because that was alot of work and ...well maybe I will. I have to finalize my thoughts for my christmas card design and take a photo shoot of the children. I cant wait until I live in a house that has a proper place for a christmas tree. This house just isnt suited for one really well. Weve been putting it in the dining room and everything is super squished. I wonder if I should put up an additional mini tree for just elvis ornaments this year. The lights I put on that tree are just blue (blue christmas). I wonder how Isabelle will react to visiting Santa this year. Last year she didnt want to sit on his lap and was quite shy. Ben will probably smile at him and pull his beard (like he pulls my hair). "We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns, and syrup." - Buddy Elf
