...and there were biscuits...

We were so super excited to have my grandparents visit this weekend. They drove in from Black Mountain, NC and we packed the days full of food and quality time and great conversation. I loved every single minute of it.

First on the list, learn how to make biscuits. And I was almost successful!

After we made a mess in less than 5 minutes, we had a pan of biscuits ready to go in the oven. They came out quite tasty, although a little flat. The good news is that Nanny thinks it's the flour and not me. So I'm going to get a new bag and see if I can perfect them. The key: knead 10 times. Overdo it and you'll end up with something similar to the plastic biscuits in my Sesame Street kitchen set.

We spent Saturday frolicking around town - the farmer's market, the Habitat Restore, back home for a quick lunch and out again to Drayton Hall. Andrew and I love this plantation so much that we became members. Our first visit was when we were down here for our first anniversary. Now that we're members, we can bring guests for free. So get on down here, folks :)

Seriously, this place is beautiful. So simple, but breath-taking. The weather was gorgeous. The sun was about to set. Lovely.

Be still, my beating heart. He sure is handsome.

That last one was just for my own pleasure :)

We went to church on Sunday, had a great lunch and then they hit the road. Andrew went on his way to study and I started Christmas crafting. (Yes, I did. And I'm not ashamed.)

We really had the most awesome time. I'm so, so, so blessed to have grandparents that are as amazing as they are. Really, truly.

  1. Drayton Hall definitely is a neat place. We took our kids from school there for a field trip. It's beautiful and the workers were really patient with our students. :-)

  2. Grandparents are such a blessing. Our kids have 9. Layton still has all 4 of his and I am down to 1. They have and share a wealth of knowledge. I'm glad yours were able to visit.
