Talking I Love My Kids!!

My children are sneaky but lovable little buggers!! I had about a 1/4 of a carton of whipping cream in the frige & TC decided he wanted to make butter. So, he poured the cream into a jar & started shaking away. I walked into the den where he was sitting on the floor & at first I thought he was going crazy or something. When I discovered what he was doing I just stood back & watched quietly. He passed the jar to Savannah a few times so she could shake it too. When the butter was made, he took it in the kitchen, poured it through a strainer & saved the "buttermilk". He then took some plain white bread & spread some butter on it for the 3 of us. It was so sweet & the fresh butter was fantastic!!

Dang that is cute. We need to have a "Story" section, like the photo gallery for these moments. Thanks for sharing that.

Thanks y'all! They both amaze me every day. It's amazing how much they remember. It was about 3 weeks ago when TC read a thing on making butter.

That's a great story! TC is a sharp little kid--it's no wonder you're so proud. I still think he's a chef in the making!

That is absolutely sweet..............smart little cookie too I didn't know you could make butter that way......think I'm going to have to try that one. Maybe I'll sit on the front porch while my neighbor nancy is mowing her lawn and see what her reaction will be this time.....:)
