Pecan Day!

After church today, Grandma came over to crack and shell pecans (from our yard) for pecan pie. While Mommy and Grandma were at the table on the porch doing that, Noble and I walked around the backyard with our pecan picker-uppers hunting for pecans. Mommy made a deal with us that for every pecan we picked up, she would pay us 5 cents. That way, we would want to pick up pecans.

After we worked for almost two hours, I collected a total of 514 pecans, and Noble collected 130. While we picked up that many, Mommy and Grandma only cracked a few because it was hard. They thought it would be easy, but they quickly learned it was not. These are the pecans they cracked...

And these are the pecans Noble and I picked up today, and on Thanksgiving.


  1. Use that money wisely Kayci. Don't spend it all in one place now 🙈🙉🙊
