One of my favorite cookbooks is a church cookbook from the Greenbrier Baptist Church located in my hometown of Haysi, Virginia. My sister, Fern, thoughtful wonderful sister that she is, remembers to get me a new one when they are available. I always go to this cookbook first when I need a recipe.
Around Thanksgiving I make a fruitcake from a recipe in this cookbook. I first had a taste of a homemade fruitcake at Ferns house years ago. Never liked fruitcke from the grocery store so was really surprised that I liked Fern's fruitcake. It is an original recipe from Lockie Cumbo, who happens to me Fern's mother-in-law. Lockie also makes a great red velvet cake.
Back to the fruitcake, I make it about two weeks before Thanksgiving. After I take it out of the oven, I let the fruitcake cool for about 20 minutes. Cut into about 6 sections. Wrap with aluminum foil and place in gallon freezer bags. Don't know why but the fruitcake always tastes better after it has been frozen for about two weeks. Freeze, take out one as needed.

This past week was very busy and wonderful. Our grandson, Maksim Scott, was born on Wedneday morning. He weighed in at almost 8 pounds and was 19 inches long. Proud parents are Scott and Krystsina and his big brother is Alex. Here is Alex in the waiting room at the hospital waiting for his brother to be born. No he wasn't reading the magazine, he was playing peek-a-boo with Momaw and Popaw.

We didn't have to wait long for Maks arrival. Krystsina checked in at the hospital at 12:30 AM and Maks was born at 2:01 AM.
