Well, the things that make you excited as an adult are far from what kids consider fun! (though the kids do love the new appliances too!)
I am happy to have my new Vitamix, Excalibur, and Refrigerator!
I have used the Vitamix at least twice a day since it showed up Monday!!
My dehydrator is running right now-full of nuts, half an orange, and our first attempt at fruit leather. It is FULL.
This is the old fridge-I had to move it out of the way to make room for the new one.(that potty was given to me by my mom...torrin likes to put his toys in it now...)
Now, if only the cold weather would break so we could start our new journey into Maple Syrup! Nathan went all out and ordered metal buckets and more supplies! I feel the need to remind him daily that he has a full time job...and that syrup is going to be a job in itself! I cannot wait to learn alongside my husband and kids!! Syrup is our "dream" for our future. Not only is syrup our go-to sweetener, but it is very expensive. We are hoping to save money by making our own...and one day having enough to supplement our income so we can live the simpler life we strive for!
Boiling "pot" this thing is huge!
We really do look forward to Nathan spending less time at a desk job, and more time home, with us...teaching our kids how to do things like harvest sap into syrup!
