Little Wife On the Prairie

When you are everything to everyone, well, you had better act like you have it all together.

Bees, babies, and chile!!!

Lots of pictures, little time.  Head barely above water.  So much laundry.  Garden is a mess.  I cannot possibly can another okra.  I am thankful for the abundance but ready for the season of rest.
So here, without shame, are my pictures.  Just a few words but lots of pictures.

First day, or maybe second day of Pre-K!  (He is kid number 4.  Give me some grace.)

She found the chocolate chips!

We celebrated Rosh Hashana or the Feast of Trumpets with sweet bread and apples with honey!  We also listened to the blowing of the shofar from Israel.  It is a powerful sound!

Jolie claims that he is an old lady in a 7-year-old's body.

I think he is just plain sweet and tender-hearted.

This guy too!

Oh my sweet!

The girls are busy preparing for winter.  They are doing awesome!

The white stuff in the corner is capped honey.  That means it is all ready to be stored and not used until they need it.  Next to that is uncapped honey.  You can see it shining.  The smaller brood pattern in the lower corner and the abundance of honey is a good sign for this time of year!

Me in my gear admiring their work!

My crazy husband in no protection.  Good thing the girls are pretty calm.

Grandmother and Popper came from NM for our chile roast.

George and Matt worked so hard to make everything run smoothly.

Everyone helped!

Well, almost everyone.  :)  Some of us just looked cute.

Cousins and chile!

These two are trouble but they have SO MUCH FUN!

Sweet Heather and George!

Halie playing with the kids.  It was almost a disaster!  If you click on this picture, Halie's face is priceless!

Love this time of year.

Our baggers!

This makes me so happy in a way that might be a little bit crazy.  We all ate our weight in chile and tortillas!

Getting it bagged and ready for the freezer.  We will enjoy this in stews, enchiladas, burritos, casseroles and just chopped up on anything else we may eat.  It's a New Mexico staple!

This precious man valiantly fought the flies all afternoon!  He had the most important job.  The flies were awful!

Now I feel ready for Fall.  Next up, the Annual Mullins women's canning day!

We grew Okra for the first time this year.
Was not even sure if it would grow in a high mountain dessert, but it did! And now I am trying to figure out what to do with them all!
Love pics of your fam, you all, always look so content and cheerful.
