Real Simple, Chicken and Dumplings

Abby Kennan Photography, Abby Kennan is a lifestyle photographer based in San Antonio TX.

Y'all.  It's cold here.  Scratch what I said earlier about a cold front, that was nothin compared to this polar vortex or whatever they are calling it.  I seriously don't know how people who live up in the Northeast do it.  Did y'all know the sun sets at like 4:30 p.m. up there, if not earlier???   I am jealous of their early Fall and Summer though ;-)  Yet I digress...cold weather means cold weather food, yesssss.  I've always had chicken and dumplings with the flat dumplings instead of the round, fluffy ones, so I thought I'd give it a whirl.  This was a big hit in our household!

It's A . . .

Exciting news in the Kennan household!  Kyle's side of the family has a long history of having boys.  Think decades and decades over.  So girls are few and far between.  Much to our surprise, we found out that we will be welcoming a GIRL into our little family in March.  She will certainly have two amazing big brothers to look after her.  We are over the moon!

I had big plans on surprising the boys and taking fun photos revealing to them what we are having, but they couldn't take the suspense.  Early Tuesday morning (the day after we found out) they both crawled into bed with us and whispered, can you tell us what you're having?  And Kyle and I couldn't not tell them :-)  They're biggest concern?  Her not being able to play soccer with them and their friends after school.  Coltrane told me when we were alone, that he "hopes she's like Elsa, so he can finally see real snow".

Little Bits of Fall


Soon It Will Be Cold Enough to Build Fires by Emancipator on Grooveshark

I long for the Autumn of the East Coast.  Growing up, during the Fall we would to travel up North to Sandwich, MA on Cape Cod for a week and also over to Massanuten, VA.  The fall foliage there is no joke y'all.   Now every once in a while during November here in TX, I do spot little bits of that; but that's just it, little bits here and there, but I'll take it.  Today while letting Matilda out in the front yard, I noticed some red leaves radiating amongst the green grass and it made me smile.  And this cold front?  I mean...love it!  Now to sip on my current pregnancy craving, a chai tea latte, while watching a top secret movie with Coltrane.  (Tinker Bell, we don't disclose these types of movies to big brother Kingston).  Happy Fall y'all!
