After deciding that the sweet corn was ripe enough, it was time to do the once a year corn freezing. We invited Knut’s parent’s and brother, Lars, over so we could all do it together. Knut’s G&G Madsen happened over, and got put to work as well!
Here’s Silje trying to steal some of the raw corn. She’ll eat corn whether cooked or not! Linda is busy cutting the corn off the cob before baking.
Here’s only one of the laundry baskets full of cobs after husking, waiting in line to be cut.
I freeze cream corn, so I filled 4 9×13 pans full to the brim with raw corn, dumped a stick of butter and a pint of half and half on each pan, and baked for 1 hour. After cooled, I bagged it up and stuck it in the freezer. I’m hoping 4 pans will be enough this year, as we had lots of corn left over that we just gave away. I’m looking forward to digging into the stash this winter!
Lately, Silje has been reading to David, and he absolutely loves it. I got this picture, but it was so cute, I tried to get this video of it too!
From Sunday night to Tuesday morning, Knut and I got to drop the kids off at the grandparents and head out to the lake! It was so relaxing, and we had been looking forward to it for so long! This last year has been our busiest yet, and we haven’t been on a date since…well it’s been maybe 6 mos? We were too tired to do anything for our anniversary earlier this year, so this is kinda our belated anniversary date.
Knut wanted to go sailing on Monday, and I was chuckling the whole time because he’s never been by himself before, and I knew he didn’t really know what he was doing, but he said he could figure it out.
So the sail is up, I wonder what this rope does…
This looks good right here…
You sure you don’t want to come?
Off he goes. I know…I didn’t go with him. I stayed back and worked on my knitting uninterrupted. Plus, I was sure I was going to end up thrown into the lake, and wasn’t quite in the mood for that.
He made it back.
Since I took a few pictures of him on the lake, he snuck up and took a picture of me knitting a hat for our new baby. This might be one of the few tummy pictures I’ve posted in awhile!
I did go out with Knut when he went fishing. These pictures were taken when we came back at sunset. A big event happened out there on the lake. Knut caught his first Walleye! He normally just catches pike, but has had the goal of catching a Walleye for some time now, since he has never caught this type of fish before. Let me tell you, his face looked like Christmas morning! I didn’t have the camera with, which he is probably still upset with me for, since it was so small he had to throw it back. He’s been walking on clouds ever since.
The kids were worn out when we picked them up from Grandma and Grandpa’s, so we know they had a great time. After we got home, David picked up a book and started “reading” to himself, which I’ve never seen him do before, so I caught a video of that too. See if you can guess what story he is reading.
