Jonathan had the past week off from school since it was his School’s Fall Break. We had such beautiful Fall weather! The boys helped their Dad decorate outside, we picked leaves, and picked up some more pumpkins for the front of the house. Jordan absolutely loves having his big brother around. They have been wearing their costumes all day and playing outside together.

We also made one of Jonathan’s favorite meals, Hoppin John. It is so simple and tasty! There are many recipes and ways to make your Hoppin John based upon your preferences. However, I rinse a bag of black eyed peas and put in the crockpot, adding about three cups of water. Then add about 5 beef bullion cubes. I let cook until black eyed peas are soft (also, I will add more water as needed). Then brown Italian sausage and add to crockpot. I make white rice in my rice cooker and serve the Hoppin John over white rice. It’s so yummy and a nice Fall meal. You can make with cornbread as well!

Well we are heading into Sunday trying to soak up Jonathan’s last day before he is heading back to school. We will be doing lots of lounging, laundry, and preparing for the busy week ahead. Here is a picture of our little Jazzy girl that we just can’t get enough of!
