1/4 cup water
Place apples in a pot, gently stir in cinnamon and pour water over all.
Cook on medium high heat for about 10 minutes; turn to low and cook until barely tender. At this point I wish that I could smell - I'm sure that the house smelled wonderful.
After cooking let cool and let you little one mash the apples with a "wavy" potato masher.
This should serve eight little ones! Yummy!

A couple of weeks ago when we went to the Woodruff Football game I saw this little girl with a adorable jumper on in the Woodruff colors. I talked about how cute it would be and how I thought I could do that.
So off to Wal-mart I go to buy a pattern and material; I find this maroon gingham print that will be great for Wooduff games. Now, I have only had my sewing machine about a year, but I feel that I am pretty crafty, so why shouldn't I be able to do this? I washed and dried the material, cut out the pattern and to my sewing machine I go.
I begin sewing up a storm - really becoming proud of the job was doing. I finished the dress except for the hem and call Hannah Grace into the room to try the dress on and to see where I need to sew the hem. We slip it over her head -great fit except that I had sewed the arm holes up with the side of the dress!
There Hannah Grace stood with a sack on with no arm holes; all pride when out the window.
I gave up for the evening.
Over the days that followed I re-thought the dress and decided to try again. This time went for a dress that Faith could wear to Bubba's games and this is the final product. I was still in a crafty mood after the dress so I made a trip to Hobby Lobby last Saturday and got the idea to make the shirts that the girls wore to the Woodruff game last week so Hannah Grace would not be left out.
Have a great week-end!

Here is Faith sporting her new haircut and her new football hair bow. A friend of Aunt Amanda's made it - didn't she do a great job?
We all were ready to cheer Bubba on!
He did great!
Woodruff won the game again. This week not only did Coach Brown lead his team in prayer - he lead both teams in prayer!

Hannah Grace painted her shirt that she is wearing, isn't it cute?
Travis was home yesterday afternoon to cut the grass and do somethings around the house. He got a new weed eater for his birthday and wanted to get fresh gas/oil for it, so I went to the gas station to get the gas. Seth was asleep and Hannah Grace and Faith were suppose to be laying on the couches resting and watching a movie. As I drove back into the driveway, I found Faith like this at the water hose in the front yard.

Woodruff won the football game in the last seconds - which was kind of exciting for football and we went out on the field to see Jaba and Caleb. Their coach, Coach Brown, gathered all the players and parents around and gave a victory speech. I felt like I was in the movie "Remember the Titans". And then Coach Brown did something that brought tears to my eyes. He began praying. He was thanking Jesus for their win and praying for his players. It was so wonderful to see a coach seeking Jesus. It opened my eyes and just might have turn me into a football fan because on another Friday night you will find me in the stands at Woodruff!

Last night was a proud night for Dad. Samuel had his first football practice as a Bulldog. I don't know who was more excited, Daddy or Samuel. I loved watching Travis last night; he was such a proud Dad. At one point he came to me smiling and said, "This is a day I have been looking forward to since you called me and told me I was having a son." Samuel was pretty proud too. One boy had on an Bulldog jersey and told Samuel "This was my uncle's jersey - he played for Boiling Springs", Samuel proudly replied, "This was my Daddy's jersey - he was a bulldog too!"
So, ready or not - Samuel is a proud Bulldog with an even prouder Bulldog Dad!
