Twinlets 6 month Pictures

Hosanna & Hallelujah turned 6 months old on May 2nd and we wanted to share their super cute 6 month pictures with you. Stats: Hosanna 14lbs 15 oz, Halle 14 lbs 4 oz.

Since George gives me such a hard time for "hogging the whole website," you'll have to click on their one tiny picture to see their whole photo album of 477 pictures from this session, er, um, I mean 47 pictures! Thanks for looking. Jenn - Proud mommy of twins.

Sweet Tea?!?!

From my recent vacation down south, I have fallen in love with real southern sweet tea. I've tried and tried to make it at home, but it's just not iced tea with sugar. Thanks to Bev from Cadillac for a real down home Sweet Tea Recipe. I've tried it and it's great, although I use one batch of syrup for several pitchers of tea.

Simple Syrup:
5 cups sugar
3 cups cold water
For simple syrup, in a small non-reactive pot combine 5 cups of sugar and 3 cups of cold water. Slowly bring to a boil and add 6 sliced lemons and a few sprigs of fresh mint. Remove from heat. Allow to cool 10 minutes and strain.

Here are the fuzzy chicks from George's Hobby Farm...
