Turnip greens

 This weekend we decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and get busy putting up some turnip greens for the winter. The girls are getting to the age where they are very helpful! Both girls helped us pick the turnip greens:

Miss Priss is really getting to a helpful age! She fortunately wants to help (for a while anyway!) at this age. She is eager to learn and get her hands busy. I want to take advantage of this time to hopefully teach her a few things that she will remember when she has her own household. She is very helpful and proud of herself and I love getting to spend the time with her!

Miss Priss and our finished product. From the garden to the jar! Yummy! They will be really good this winter! Thanks to Miss Priss and Little Bit for all their help! There will be more to can next weekend!!

Halloween 2010

This year for Halloween we had the beautiful Mary Queen of Scots (Miss Priss) and the adorable Queen Elizabeth (Little Bit). The costumes were just that of renaissance princesses, but they insisted on being princesses from real life. Miss Priss has been all about history and all things scottish (don't know where she would have picked up on that!;)

Here they are in Springville on Friday night for the downtown businesses trick or treat. The businesses stay open an extra hour to hand out candy to the kids. Its been a big success for the past couple of years and a great way to rack up on the candy!

Of course we had to trick or treat at Pop and Nonna's while we were there!

Saturday we headed to Moody to visit with Papaw, D, Mimi, Papa Perry, Laura and Drew. Here we have our two princesses and the Knight in shining armor. Plus if you'll notice the lovely Princess Shelby joined us for the evening.

Oh my goodness, how grown she looks!!!

Now that's the little bit with attitude that I know!

Poor dogs!

Her highness.

This is one of the only pictures I have with Miss Priss showing her teeth (or lack there of!). She was embarrassed and only wanted to show a toothless smile. I personly love the toothless look! Priceless!

Some sassy princesses!

Here they are in the midst of their trick or treating. They all racked up and had a blast. I think we have enough candy to last us til next Halloween!!!
