Chocolate Gravy is Good for the Soul

Last weekend my Mom and Nannie came to see us from Arkansas. I was desperate to see my Nannie.  She had major heart surgery not too long ago and I haven't seen her in a long while.  It was so nice to wrap my arms around her and give her a big hug and kiss!  She seemed to be doing well and I'm so glad she was able to travel to see us! 
Connor was spoiled the entire weekend and got lots of loving from his Nana and Nannie Sue :-)
Nannie cooked us a good dinner one night with fried taters, fried okra, fried squash, and home grown tomatoes (my favorite!).  Oh how I miss that good cooking!

She also got up early one morning and made us a yummy breakfast that including another favorite chocolate gravy.  If you don't know what chocolate gravy is it's probably a southern thing....but it's the yummiest gravy and you just poor it over biscuits and gobble every bite!
My Mom, Connor, and Nannie
Chocolate gravy = YUMMY!
1/4 cup sugar

2 tablespoons cocoa

1 tablespoon flour

3/4 cup milk

4 teaspoons butter

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Do you think Connor enjoyed it???

Nannie working hard in the kitchen....
Connor loved his Nana holding him and he got lots of kisses and snuggles.
HOME GROWN tomatoes....there is nothing like it!
Nannie bought Connor some cars.  A police car, ambulance, and fire truck....complete with siren noises.  He's been sleeping with them every night and taking them with him everywhere!  I can't tell you how many times during this week I've thought I was getting pulled over, only to realize it was Connor's toy police car! Whew!!!  ha ha!!! 

He's been asking all week "Where Nanas go?"

Breaks my heart.

We miss you so much and thank you for coming to see us! 
We are so blessed to have you!

I hate those police cars. It freaks me out all the time. We know have a rule that siren toys stay at home.
