A plea to all moms!

Please please give your children jobs around the house. Make them clean their room at least once a week. Have them cook dinner and clean the kitchen. I am so tired of hearing that my kids are the ONLY kids that have to do all these things, plus go to early morning seminary, plus get up for family scipture study!
Our pumkin plant stopped living. We noticed that our 2 (and only 2) pumpkins were getting eaten before we had a chance to eat them. So I took one and made a pie. It actually tasted more like a custard, which I didn't mind a bit! You can find the recipe here.
