Peace Out 2018, Hello 2019

Can you believe another year has come to an end?  It’s time to reflect on the last 12 months, make plans and set goals for the upcoming year.  We agree that 2018 has been the longest and yet the fastest year of our lives, if that even makes sense. We have been through the trenches this year with the unexpected death of our dad in February. For us, it’s been a year of tremendous sadness, growth, and thankfulness. Sadness and growth because we are learning our “new normal” without this man who was one of the centerpieces to our family.  Thankfulness because we were reminded of the true meaning of love as our family and friends have given abundantly in our time of sadness through prayer, hugs, cards, and calls/ texts. We are so grateful!

To say we are ready to say “peace out” 2018 is an understatement, but we are ready to kick 2019 off the right way! If you haven’t thought about your resolutions yet, there’s still time and we are here to help get you started. Here are a few things to consider when setting your New Years resolutions.

  • Start small. If you set achievable goals, you will be more likely to stick with it.
  • Be specific on what you’re trying to achieve so that you don’t lose focus. We are both guilty of getting sidetracked and losing sight of the what we are trying to achieve.
  • Set a start date. It helps to have that hard date in mind as it always mentally prepares us to commit. It doesn’t matter if it’s January 1st or February 1st, just pick a date that works for you and GO FOR IT! You’re less likely to push it off to next week.
  • Write your resolutions down. If you have your resolution or goal in front of you, you are more likely to follow through.
  • Have fun! If you keep it lighthearted and have fun along the way, you are more likely to stick with it!

Now that you have a few tips to help you get those 2019 resolutions set, let’s bring in the new year and be as productive as we can.  Thank you for coming around this year as we have embarked on this blogging journey. It’s been a wonderful experience and we can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store for us!

 

Big Daddy’s Bourbon Pecan Pie

To make this blog post even more special, Karrie is wearing our Grandmother’s apron she always wore during the holidays.

Isn’t it amazing how the holidays can trigger a memory with a song, a place or a taste? Growing up we were one of those families that kept the same tradition year after year.  Our big extended family lived within 10 minutes of either grandparents’ house, so needless to say our holiday gatherings were crowded, loud, and full of love and laughter.  If those gatherings involved a meal, a pecan pie was always included! If you haven’t had pecan pie before, there’s still time to add this to your holiday menu. Not only does it taste amazing, it’s super easy to make!

Pecan pies weren’t just part of our holiday menu, it was part of our dad’s holiday routine. As children, we would wake to the sweet smell of dad cooking pecan pies each morning for up to three weeks prior to Christmas.  Unfortunately, we didn’t get to have any pie for breakfast unless there was one that didn’t pass his inspection.  You see – our dad was in sales and for the last thirty years or so it was his tradition to bake and deliver pecan pies to his friends, family, and clients. It wasn’t just a few pecan pies made each year, it was dozens upon dozens. He would cut the pecans and put the pie boxes together the night before baking. Then, Dad would wake around 4:00 AM to begin baking the deliveries for the day. Dad loved doing this for his friends and his friends loved receiving them.

The original recipe was shared by our Grandma Wilson, but dad added a little kick – Kentucky Bourbon.   We did make a slight change as one of the ingredients, Green Label Karo Syrup, can be difficult to find these days.  We adjusted by substituting  ½ cup of light Karo Corn Syrup and ½ cup of dark Karo Corn Syrup in lieu of the 1 cup of green label Karo Corn Syrup. Don’t fear, it turned out great!

We included a separate recipe for those of you that prefer maple syrup to corn syrup.  Both pies are delicious, the only difference being that the maple syrup recipe tastes a little sweeter.  Find both recipes below!

BIG DADDY’S BOURBON PECAN PIE – ORIGINAL RECIPE

Ingredients:

  • 1 unbaked deep dish pie crust – We use the ready made crusts by Pillsbury Pet-Ritz because they are so good and it’s easy!
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
  • ½ stick butter (melted)
  • 3 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup green label Karo Corn Syrup – Or substitute 1/2 cup Karo light corn syrup and 1/2 cup Karo dark corn syrup.
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons bourbon – We add 3 tablespoons to give it a bit more bourbon flavor. However, it’s still amazing if you only add 2 tablespoons.

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Gently poke holes in the bottom of pie crust with a fork – careful not to poke holes in pie pan.

  • Coarsely chop the pecans. Some recipes don’t call for chopping the pecans, it’s just preference. 
  • Spread chopped pecans over the bottom of your pie crust.
  • Melt cubed butter in microwave or stove top. For the sake of time, we put the butter in a covered microwave safe dish until melted. Let the butter cool before adding to the other ingredients.  Set aside.
  • Slightly beat eggs and set aside.

  • Measure the remaining ingredients and mix in one bowl.
  • Stir cooled butter into mixture.

  • Add eggs to mixture and stir.  Once mixture has settled, use a spoon to remove any egg pieces that float to top of bowl.  After years of making these pies, Dad realized that by eliminating these, the pies were prettier.  If these are left in the mixture, they will float to the top during cooking and make dark, burnt spots on top of the pie.
  • Pour mixture over pecans.  Pecans will rise to the top.
  • Place pie in preheated oven for 50 to 60 minutes. If the pie seems a bit loose, cook pie until firm.  You can tell if it needs to cook longer by gently shaking the pie.  If the pecans shift, and the pie does not seem firm, cook for another 5 minutes and test again. Tip: If you notice the crust is becoming too brown, cover with a piece of foil for the remainder of time.

Elf on the Shelf Calendar 2018

Christmas is one of those times that we get see a glimpse of of magic through the eyes of our children.  This is one of the many reasons we love this season!  Now, there are so many different ways to make the holiday even more special, and the creation of the Elf on the Shelf is one of them!  In our families, we try very hard to teach our children the gift of giving this season.  We have implemented this spirit of giving into our Elf on the Shelf tradition – not only is it fun for the kids, but it also gets them excited about helping others, and being grateful for the things they have been blessed with.  We have created this calendar in the hopes that it will make this Elf on the Shelf easier for all you parents out there!  This time of year can be hectic – we get it!  So moving your elf can go from a fun idea, to an extra point of stress as we busy parents try to come up with different ideas each day – or even just remembering to move the thing!  Hopefully this calendar will help make this tradition fun for the whole family!

Scroll to the bottom of this post to download your own copy of our calendar!

3 Thanksgiving Family Activities

We love Thanksgiving because it is a time to get together with family and friends.  For those of you that are young at heart, or have young ones to entertain, it is always fun to incorporate games or activities.  We have learned that the holidays run a bit more smoothly if the kids are happy and entertained, so we have compiled a list of three fun kid-friendly activities for your family to enjoy this Thanksgiving!

Turkey Hunt

This is a fun game that your kids (and maybe even the adults!) will love to play!  I have a feeling that we will be playing this game more than once at our Thanksgiving celebration!

1 – Before your guests arrive, CLICK HERE to print the cards for the game.  Then, cut on the lines.  Keep in mind, it is easier for your little ones to find the turkeys if you use bright colored paper!

2 – Pick one person to be the leader of the game.  This could be either an adult, or an older child.  The leader of the game is responsible for hiding the turkeys for the other players to find, and for keeping score.

3 – You can either have the children look for the turkeys on their own, or put them in pairs.  I prefer to put them in pairs so the older child can help the younger one during their hunt.

4 – Each time a player finds a turkey, they must run their card back to the leader before hunting for more cards.  The leader will be keeping tally of how many turkeys each person (or pair) finds.

5 –  Once all the cards are found, have the leader declare a winner!

 

Turkey Hats

These hats are fun to make, and ADORABLE photo ops!  Did we mention they keep the kiddos busy?  Hallelujah for quiet time when you are trying to prepare for your guests – or just enjoy some adult conversation!  We have included templates for the turkey’s body that you can print, as well as instructions on how to make these cute little hats.

Materials:

-party hat, 1 per person (I got mine at the Dollar Tree.  They did not have solid colors, but since most of the hat will be covered, I didn’t mind!)

-feathers (you could also make your own feathers out of paper, but I picked these feathers up at Wal Mart)

-large wiggly eyes, 2 per person (if the wiggly eyes are a choking hazard for your child, you can draw the eyes)

-orange card stock, 1 sheet will make the beaks and legs for 2 turkeys

-brown card stock, 1 sheet will make the bodies for 2 turkeys

-plain white paper, 1 sheet per person

-crayons

-scissors

-glue

Instructions:

1 – CLICK HERE to download the file for the legs and beaks.  Print this file on orange card stock.  If you do not have orange card stock, you could print on plain white paper and have the children color the legs and beak orange – and let’s be honest, this is one more step to keep them busy!!  Cut out legs and beaks.  Fold the legs accordion style, and fold the beak in half.

2 – CLICK HERE to download the file for the turkey’s body.  Print onto brown card stock.  If you do not have brown card stock, you could print on plain white paper and have them color their turkey’s body.  Older children may have more fun coloring it themselves, so they can give their turkey a more unique look!  Cut out the bodies.

3 – Glue wiggly eyes and beak onto the turkey’s face.

3 – On the plain sheet of white paper, make the turkey’s wings by tracing their hands.  An older child or adult can assist with this step.  After the wings have been colored, cut them out.

4 –  Now that you have all of different pieces of the turkey’s body cut out, glue them onto the turkey.

  • Start by gluing on the body in the middle of the hat.
  • Glue the wings on either side of the turkey’s body.  It works best if you glue the palms onto the hat, but bend the fingers out so that they stick out on either side of the body.
  • Glue the feathers on the back of the turkey, so that the tail feathers stick up behind the turkey’s head.
  • Glue the legs on either side of the turkey’s body, they should frame the person’s face when the hat is being worn.

5 – Once dry, wear your turkey hat and get some super cute photo ops!

**If you have younger children, it is much easier to have everything cut out before they begin the project, then you can help them assemble the pieces.

Thanksgiving Tree

We decided to create a Thanksgiving Tree to remind us of the many good things in our lives!  I have loved watching our tree fill with blessings!  There are two different ways you can use a Thanksgiving Tree this season:

1 – We have gradually been adding leaves to ours leading up to Thanksgiving day.  Each person has been pinning a blessing to the tree at breakfast and at dinner.  On Thanksgiving morning, we will read our slips of paper aloud over breakfast, and kick off our day appreciative of the good things in our lives!

2 –  If you choose to include this in your Thanksgiving celebration, you can have each guest fill out one or more slips upon arrival and pin them on the tree.   Later, you can read these slips aloud (if you fill them out anonymously, you can even turn it into a game and try to guess which person contributed the blessing being read!)

Materials:

– vase

– branches (how many will depend on how full you want your tree to be – I took my vase with me into the yard as I collected branches)

– mini clothes pins

– material for leaves – I chose to use a fabric that had plastic lining

– hot glue gun and glue sticks

– scissors

– white piece of paper

– ribbon to tie around vase (optional)

Instructions:

1 – Arrange the branches in your vase.  I chose to tie a ribbon around my vase for a little extra decoration.

2 – Cut out leaves and hot glue them onto the clothespins.  CLICK HERE  to print a template for the maple leaves that go on the tree.

3 – Cut small slips of paper.  I used long narrow slips, because these would not show behind the leaves once they were pinned on the tree.

4 – Write your blessing onto a slip of paper, fold the slip, and pin it onto the tree.

5 – Watch your tree fill with blessings!

**Another option would be to cut the leaves out of paper and write the blessings directly onto the leaves.  Then you can tie them onto the tree with string.  I chose to use fabric and clothespins so that I can reuse them every year!

We hope you enjoy these suggestions for your Thanksgiving celebration!  We would love to see your pictures if you choose to include these ideas when you get together with family or friends.  Just use the hashtag #2styleavenuethanksgiving on instagram so we can find you!  Wishing everyone an amazing holiday filled with love and laughter!

 

25 Things to do This Fall

  • Make a pot of chili
  • Create a wreath for front door (with the kids!) – Raise your hand if your grandparents told you to go pick up sticks out of the yard when you were a kid?  (Ok, just curious, if this was you, did you actually raise your hand?!)  Ours definitely did, and we aren’t sure if it was that they actually wanted the sticks out of the yard, or if it was because they wanted to keep us busy!  Well, for this craft, you can keep your kids busy picking up sticks AND come away with a really cute door wreath!  We came across an adorable wreath on the blog Yellow Mums, and knew instantly that we had to try to make one!  Click here for the tutorial.  Check back with us on Instagram to see how our own version of this wreath turns out!

  • Go on a picnic

About Town: Bush-N-Vine

Fresh fruits and vegetables, OH MY!

Finding local activities that get the kids off the couch and us out of the house is always a win for us.  We love to visit places around the Charlotte area and we’re excited to share one of our favorite places to frequent with the littles.  Bush-N-Vine is a local farm located in York, SC.  Trust us, it is so worth the drive and would be a great family adventure where you’ll come away with as many fresh food options as you can carry.

Bush-N-Vine has been in the Hall family for over 150 years and started as a peach orchard. Boy has it grown! Get it – grown!  You can choose from a variety of vegetables and fruits in the shop and they even offer a CSA program and USDA approved and inspected Angus Beef. We haven’t personally tried the beef but we’ve been told it is GREAT! 

Why do WE love Bush-N-Vine? Here are our top 3 reasons:

1 – Picking! What kid doesn’t like to pick things! Depending on the season, visitors can pick strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, peaches and pumpkins. At some point over the last few years, we’ve picked everything at the farm except blueberries. The strawberries and blackberries are some of the biggest we’ve seen and they are some of the best tasting. It does tend to take us a bit longer to pick because the kids put equal amounts in their mouth as they do in the basket! But hey, this counts as a snack and an activity!  Another bonus for us moms is the farm is well maintained so the kids are able to pick the gardens without wading through tall grass. That’s huge for us mommas who need to keep an eye out for snakes! 

2 – Activities! The kids love the play area that includes swings, a playhouse, a wagon and a farm built slide. They even have a large bee hive for the kids to look at (don’t worry – it is safely tucked into it’s own little house). Depending on the time of year, Bush-N-Vine will host different activities. Right now, guests can check out “Slices of Summer” on Saturdays from 10-3. You can sample some of the farm’s melons and fruits before picking your own goodies, or just exploring. During the fall on noted Saturdays, you can attend the Fall Farm Fun. We have gone in years past and it includes bands, hay rides to the pumpkin patch, and more for a small fee. Check the back later for more details on the 2018 Fall Farm Fun schedule. Hopefully, this year we won’t have 80+ degree weather when we are trying to pick our pumpkins!

3 – Ice cream! Bush-N-Vine has amazing soft serve ice cream. You can always count on the traditional vanilla served along with a seasonal fruit flavor made with fruit right off the farm. Our personal favorite – STRAWBERRY! If they are feeling adventurous, get it swirled! Guess what? it’s affordable! No $5 cones there!

Every time we visit Bush-n-Vine we come away with bags of fresh produce! Oh, I forgot one of our favorites, the tomatoes! Grab them while there, they make a mean BLT or a simple tomato sandwich. To learn more about Bush-n-Vine, visit their website here.

If you’ve been to Bush-N-Vine, what was your favorite thing about the farm?
