~I know summer is coming to an end but say it isn't so?! I feel like this month has flown by. I have so much to do before Christmas! I know what you are thinking its not even October yet. Well my hope is to have the inside of our home complete by then. Plus I have decided to make a lot of our kids Christmas gifts this year. So where do I start?! Well I guess I will start by going from room to room and make a list of what needs to be done, then I will make the Christmas to do list.
~I am also looking for a part time job. As I am a stay at home mom and have been for 4 years this may be tricky getting back into the work force. But like my long list of other things it needs to be done! So a job hunting I shall go!
~I wanted to make a list of things I will miss about summer:
10. Barbeque's! (I love the smell of a good BBQ )
9. All of the beautiful colors of the great outdoors
8. Children's laughter while running through a sprinkler
7. Going on picnics with the family
6. Gardening
5. The sun
4. Ice Pops
3. Garage Sales
2. The Beach

~A big thank you goes out to Thrifty Decor Chick! I won a picture from one of her fabulous giveaways! I am so excited to put a bomobob photo in our home! I have needed a picker upper after the past few weeks.
~Lets just start off with my husband thinking he was having a heart attack. That was very scary but I am happy to say after an overnight stay in the hospital it turns out that he just had a severe case of heartburn. Then my porcelain on my crown chipped off my tooth (did I mention it just happened to chip off into my gums) which then = paying the dentist 500+ for it to be repaired, our kids were both sick.
~So with all of my complaining over with the bright side is that my husbands recent stress test went well they said his heart was healthy, My new crown will be in, in a couple of weeks, The kids are both now well and feisty as ever!
~ Isn't it funny how some times when we are in the moment things may not seem like they will get better, but then they do and we are thanking God that they did. I am realizing I need to thank God even when things are not so great, that some times we may not get what we ask for but the Lord knows just what we need.

Got leftovers from your garden?

~ So my wonderful neighbor subscribed to the Woman's Day magazine for me. I started receiving it in the mail a few months ago and was excited about the simple recipes inside. Above is one of the said recipes. Now my kids love fruit but do not care for most vegetables so I thought I would try this since our Zucchini plant has been producing like crazy.

Zucchini Plant

~Guess what it was a success and a new favorite for the family! I never thought I would have to sneak veggies in to my kids diet. Maybe it is one step closer to them trying plain Zucchini ....well maybe ...

Blueberry Extravaganza!

~I am so sorry this post has taken forever and a day to appear on my blog! Life happened but I am finally able to show you what the products were from all of our Blueberry Fun! I have to tell you all that these were the biggest blueberries I have ever seen! Some were almost as big as a Quarter!

~So some of you guessed correctly! We made a Blueberry Pie! It was so yummy and was gone within 24 hours. I am kind of proud of my first blueberry pie and my kiddos of course ate it without any arguing!

Look Ma no hands!

~We also washed and froze a bunch so we could make blueberry pancakes! My hubby loves to make breakfast on the weekends so he made some blueberry pancakes so I could show you all how good they look!

~We made chocolate covered blueberries. However there is no picture because I was to busy eating them to worry about such a thing. Plus we made a lot of muffins! We made blueberry, blueberry banana, blueberry banana chocolate chip and blueberry chocolate chip. I think I have gained five pounds since we went blueberry picking =).

~Last but not least we made blueberry jam! Also a first in the Hart household. It was so easy and is so good. I know I keep saying that these things are all good but how can you go wrong with blueberries?!

~I hope you all enjoyed Blueberry Extravaganza! I also wanted to say hello to all of you who have decided to follow our blog! It has been fun so far and I am excited to learn more about blogging as time goes by. Hope you all had a great Labor Day!
