We have fans!

There is no slacking when it comes to the world of "blogging". Atleast, not for JR and I! If I do not update on a consistent basis, Lauren and Ashlee never fail to remind me of my laziness. Lauren will start on Monday, and Ashlee will usually start in around here's Wednesday! haha!
I must start out this post by telling all about the most ridiculous cooking experience of my life. JR and I wanted to finally make the pork chops that we'd had in the freezer for awhile, and we decided that fried potatoes would go lovely along with some corn. Sounds fantastic right? No. It wasn't. My first problem was that I cut up potatoes for about 746 people. Second, I didn't let the grease get hot enough. When I told my mom about this devastating night, she asked me, "Now did you heat up the grease then drop one in to see if it was ready?". That is verbatim what Nancy asked me the very first time I made fried potatoes (or as I call them, little slices of fried heaven) When JR finally got tired of waiting for them to cook, we set them out and he said, "Um, they smell kind of starchy!" Well, YEAH! Okay, so now on to the pork chops that turned out like leathery patches of meat sprinkled with cinnamon sugar because JR accidentally grabbed the wrong spice. So, there you all go. That was probably somewhat boring to you, but I feel better now that I've gotten that out. I whole-heartedly disgraced Nancy's fried potatoes. It happens, I know. Oh, okay so that's not quite it! The corn! Remember the corn?? Well, it was one of those bagged corns, and I overcooked those, and they shrunk up into little tiny shriveled corn nuggets. JR's patience was done after hour 2 of our cooking night, that he ate waffles, and I ate a handful of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. The End.

In honor of Thanksgiving I will post some of the things I am thankful for. Some funny, some nice. I want you all to comment on what you all are thankful for. Then I'll add to the next post!! Do it! It will be fun to see what we all say.

1. My family, they are my heroes.
2. JR. He is my whole heart.
3. That it's raining and cold right now. I can finally breathe some Fall air.
4. The combination of mine and JR's family and friends. We've all made such a neat connection, that I think only happens when it's just right.
5. The babies. There's not a day that goes by that we don't miss their tiny hugs and kisses.
6. Life.

Please "comment" on anything you are thankful for. I would love to repost with everyone's included. I can't wait to come up this weekend for the Thanksgiving Farm Feast and hope you all have a great week!

JR and Nat
