Mamma came to town!
My mom came to visit us this past week for 8 days. I was able to have Thanksgiving with her which I haven't done in soooo long! It was fun to have her here to help me shop for Christmas and to make the traditional goodies we always had growing up. I loved that the girls and I were able to wear the aprons she got me for my birthday! They are Paula Deens! (Look her up NOW if you don't know who I am talking about). Mine said "Put some south in your mouth" and my girls' aprons said "southern cook in training". What great gifts! We fixed pinto beans and cornbread one night for dinner and Brooklyn calls that meal "North Carolina food". I also love the fact that BOTH my girls love cornbread in milk, and it ain't that sweet cornbread...its the good ol'southern cornbread! My mouth is watering right now for a big cup of it!
