Sticky Buns

So with about 500 pins on my Pinterest boards I'm finally getting around to trying some of the things out. This was one of the recipes. I made it for our ladies Christmas craft swap. It was a breakfast for dinner theme.
Click here for full recipe.

All you need is butter, syrup, brown sugar, and cinnamon ( nuts optional ) and a can of grands biscuits. I ended up using a can and a half to fill my pan.

Pour half of syrup mixture and half of sugar in bottom.

Add biscuits...

Pour remaining syrup mixture on top.

Top off with other half of sugar

Cook at 375* for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Thanksgiving 2011

Here's my photo dump from my ipod of our Thanksgiving vacation up in Clayton, GA at my grandparent's house. We had such a wonderful, relaxing / exciting time. I'll post more pictures from my camera later.

My granddaddy had to build a bear proof bird feeder. He was tired of the bear bending the poles over to get to the seed! There is cement inside this pole!!

Jack on the new monkey bridge.

Collin loved riding on anything, especially the "tractor"

Uncle Jimmy carved the turkey. He saved the wishbone for Hailey.

The boys got in lots of football time. How bout that Bama game :)

Jack and Hailey at the kiddie table.

Collin LOVED his Thanksgiving feast and at leftovers for two days after!

Cousin Hayden passed out during a Jeep ride so Aunt LouLou (my mom) kept him warm.

Here he is eating. Him and Jack had lots of fun playing dinosaurs together.

Whoops! The holiday meltdown has begun!

We went to town for the lighting of the town lights and tree. Found Santa and did some shopping.

Grandma-great, Darren, Mom, Aunt SueSue, and cousin Raymond.

I'm on a hamster wheel...

Ya want to know what happens when I take some time and clean the kitchen? Well first I get a cleaner kitchen:

But I also get a bonus for my efforts:

All thanks to my little 'helper' ;)
Like I said...I'm on a hamster wheel, always moving but getting nowhere. But my helper sure is cute!

Back To School Already?!?

Yep! We have been back to school for a week now! August 1st!!! Can’t start any earlier than that can you?!?  My kids were ready though. We have had a horribly HOT Summer and they were tired of sitting around the house. Playing outside was not much of an option around here these past couple of months. Thankful for our trip up to the mountains where it was much cooler! So here ya go! First day pictures~~~

First Day of KindergartenKindergarten!!!First Day of 2nd Grade!!!2011-2012IMG_8556IMG_8557IMG_8558This is what I've delt with all Summer! :)

And while the kids have been at school I have been enjoying my one on one time with Collin again.  We are done nursing as of about two weeks ago. He did wonderful during the transition and is loving his new milk (the other two never liked whole milk). He’s also FINALLY sleeping through the night!!  This is him with a Fireman hat on (he loves the ones from Firehouse Subs!)


And I have a new love.



It is awesome.

You will get addicted.

You must check it out.

Goats on the Roof!

One of the many places to visit on the way to my grandparent’s house is “Goats on the Roof”.  We have never been, but we always drive by on the way there and back.  This time Granddaddy Great promised to take us this time :)IMG_8499Goats on the RoofIMG_8485

It’s a little gift shop / snack bar.  They sell sandwiches and desserts along with all kinds of gift items.  But the best part is feeding the goats (on the roof!) One way to feed them is to pedal a bike that takes the food up to the top.  And let me tell you those goats are waiting!!IMG_8486IMG_8489IMG_8490IMG_8491IMG_8492IMG_8493IMG_8496IMG_8483IMG_8494

Jack found this bear hat and wanted to get a picture in it.IMG_8498IMG_8500IMG_8501

Jack was feeding them using a hand crank but the poor thing has the most sensitive eyes :) IMG_8502

As we were leaving we came around the corner and found the babies!!!  So adorable!!  We fed them and their momma.  Then we used lots of sanitizer!!IMG_8504IMG_8505IMG_8506
