Friday morning Emmie woke up wanting to know where her friends were and when they were coming over. She didn't have to wait long as the girls and their parents came over for breakfast. There were 10 adults and 5 little girls there (and 1 puppy who was willing to eat anything that fell his way!) and it was wild and fun! I think I heard someone say they cooked 30 eggs and we ate every last one!
|This is how you cook eggs for 15 people! (Sorry about the picture quality...I had left my camera in the car overnight so it was all fogged up when I brought it in.)|
|Running to jump in the leaves!|
|Ellie was not so sure about the leaves!|
|Paul got Mary Jane with a big pile of leaves!|

|Love this candid shot!|
|Love attack! (There's a Paul somewhere under that pile!)|
|Emmie and me...love this picture!|
|Love this picture of the 4 of us!|
When I was growing up we always went to Atlanta to my Granny and Grandaddy's house for Thanksgiving and in they had a stone wall in their backyard that dropped off to a steep downhill incline and my cousins and I used to pile up the leaves and jump off the wall into the leaves. Watching my girls remined me of the fun times I had growing up and I just love that they're able to make these memories.
After the leaf fun we took the girls over to Emma and Mary Jane's house so that we could meet their chickens and they let Emmie pick the eggs AND we got to bring them home with us...they were so good..fresh is always better! Emmie was not so sure about the chickens but eventually warmed up enough to let Paul put her down. Ellie, my child with no fear, was delighted with the chickens! She wanted to pet them and tried to feed them but couldn't figure out how to hold the feed in her hand correctly.
