Does anyone remember these peanut patties? As a kid, I remember my dad getting them a lot, I think probably at the gas station. There was a box of them as I checked out at a local IGA last week, it makes me smile, I haven't had the heart to open it yet. Makes me think of my dad.....

Happy 1st Birthday Carter!!!

Carter celebrated his first birthday today.

He wasn't quite sure why there were so many people at his house!!!

Daddy and Carter
Mimi and Papa got Carter a brand new red wagon, a sock monkey jack-in-the-box, clothes, and other stuff. The jack-in-the-box was quite a hit!!!
I think Carter had a great time!! Hope he sleeps well tonight!!!

New Oven

I didn't get a 'before' picture with my almost 30 year old oven. The old one came out pretty easily. The new one took a bit of work.
I love the continuous grates across the top, that way I can just slide my pots/pans around on the top rather than pick them up, which makes it much easier since I am not supposed to be lifting a lot yet.
The controls for the stovetop and the oven are also on the top, which makes it much more kid safe for the grandkids. And it has a little oven on the top, just large enough for me and Greg, and a large oven on the bottom. Haven't had the chance to cook on it a lot yet but so far, I really like it!!
