Yummy garden food

We picked some green beans out of the garden and cooked them with bacon yesterday. Healthy? Probably not so much. Yummy? Oh my goodness, yes!

Sierra and I also made Halloween cookies last week. She spent several days after that sneaking black sugar off the cookies when we weren't looking and then coming to us with a black/purple mouth and trying to look all innocent

Speaking of strange coloring---Sedona has decided coloring is fun. She's much more into it than Sierra (who couldn't be bothered to sit still that long) was at that age, but she is also more interested in eating the crayons than Sierra ever was, so you have to keep a close eye on her.

Been working on Christmas presents. Can't post most of them since most of our family members read the blog, but I think it's safe to assume my grandmother won't be getting internet anytime soon, so I can post the progress on her quilt. The squares are pieced, but not yet trimmed or joined. You can get the idea though. Most of the fabric here is from old clothes of mine (preschool age and up) and some from Sierra and Sedona. I'm gonna give her a "key" of what fabric is what and hopefully pictures of us in those clothes too

The local open air produce market has set up a small pumpkin patch type thing that we went to check out last week. Here's Sierra on the BIG pumpkin:

And some other random pictures (just a head's up...there is somewhere between a 1.2% and 2.3% chance of getting two small children to both sit still and look at you at the same time when you're trying to take a picture)

There was a little platform in the middle of the hay bale maze. Sierra climbed up and started singing a "I'm FOOUUURRRR!" song

Stephanie has requested a sort of step by step how we handle our chickens post....I am planning on doing it, just haven't gotten around to it yet ;-)

I love that's beautiful! Handmade gifts are so much better than store bought stuff.

Looking forward to the chicken post! I've been reading all kinds of plans for chicken coops, but most look either too big or too small for the small flock of four that I'm hoping to get in the spring. Have you seen those European ones with what looks like a plastic dog house on one end? Oh...and also they're $300!!!! Sortof ruins the idea of frugality, huh?
