Corn Pickin Time

All of our corn became ripe at the same time so we are now up to our ears in corn!!! Pun intended ;)

Here is Wes learning how to pull the ears off the stalk

He loves the Tickly Hairs

We had corn with our dinner the other night and it was delicious!!

Good thing, too, because we have tons!

I have a feeling the next Harvest blog I post will feature TOMATOES!!!

Father's Day for Brad

This year Wesley really wanted to make Father's Day special for Brad. So first thing in the morning we made brownies and by brownies, I mean, Festive Brownies!

Wesley also set up an itenerary for the day. We had to eat brownies and open gifts and take a walk at the Reservoir and play Uno...

Wes chose a really cool gift for Brad - and that requires Extra Special Wrapping :) *be sure to notice the curly cues on each corner :)

He couldn't wait for Brad to open it and was climbing all over him and pacing around excitedly waiting for the big reveal!

It's a new WWII wii game that is right up Brad's alley. You can see what it's like by clicking here.

As you can tell by the smiles - It was a wonderful day!

Fun with Food

To me, nothing could taste better than food seasoned with pride. It could be something you proudly grew in your own garden or something new you are proud you prepared... So, that's what we have this week.

I'm impressed with our pizza tonight - I made it on our pizza stone then topped it with mozzarella and five-cheese blend, pepperoni, tomatoes, and green peppers. Brad decalred it to be my best pizza yet :)

Next up - Wesley is SUPER proud of...

Learning to make Jello

Oh and Wes is also proud of

His... First Ear of CORN!

Brad and Wesley went blueberry picking last weekend and Brad created these Awesome Monster Muffins! They're huge and delicious!

Speaking of food that's huge (and delicious) - Have you seen our Humongous Burgers?

We cut them up and everyone gets a slice :)

And now for the sweetest food I've seen all week.

Wesley made his very own Special Breakfast this morning - Cinnamon Toast.

I distinctly remember learning how to make that when I was little so it was sweet to see him making it today :)

And, amid all the sweetness, there's always room for the Real Wesley to shine through!

Recital Shirts

I'm so proud of my latest design project that I thought it was worth posting :)

These shirts are for 2 local dance studios who team up for recitals each year - Love the verse they chose and how it all came together - Enjoy!

Our Little Cornfield :)

As you can see the corn is getting nice and tall these days :) And Wesley is quite proud of himself :)

Even more exciting was the new discovery Brad made tonight:

The corn isn't the only impressive thing in the garden though. Our tomatoes have gone crazy! One is all of a sudden too big for its cage:

And the others won't fit in a cage!
