Well. My blog's been pretty quiet I know, but we have been very busy. We've been working on some Christmas gifts that I would love to put on the blog but unfortunately those gifts are for some of the people who read my blog, so... we can't do that. I can tell you however that I found a great little etsy shop that has the most adorable patterns for felt toys. It's . I'm in the process of making a few of their toys and they are so cute! I highly recommend them. I can't wait to see my daughters face when she sees a whole pancake breakfast play set. She's gonna love it. We've also been busy with "school". Our nature classes are back on schedule so we will have some photos up soon. We are also studying Native American stories and continuing our math lessons from A Little Garden Flower and we will be doing some cooking and baking this week for Thanksgiving, of course! Among the baking will be my favorite fresh pumpkin pie recipe. Here it is for anyone who would like it: . I make a few changes though. I use brown sugar instead of honey (I don't really measure it, I just add it until I think it tastes sweet enough) , I also add nutmeg and I use more spices than it says to. This really makes a great pie. Also I cut the top off my pumpkin and cut slits in it then bake it in the oven at 350 until it gets soft (you can pierce outside with fork) then I clean it out and puree it. It's much easier this way. Well, that's all for now. Hope everyone has a fantastic Thanksgiving!
