We're counting to four today:

Someone in our house is four.  Someone who yesterday was planning what gifts she wanted to give everyone else on her birthday.  Someone who chose barbecue ham sandwiches on Daddy's homemade rolls for her birthday dinner.

Ham Barbecue

3 pounds dairy-free ham, preferably chipped chopped ham
1 cup ketchup, preferably Heinz 
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup water
1 tsp. yellow mustard
1 T. vinegar
1/4 t. grated nutmeg

Mix all ingredients together in a greased baking dish with a lid.  Bake at 275 degrees, covered, for 45 minutes.  Serve on hamburger buns.

Happy Birthday, Helen.


  1. Happy 4th Birthday Big Girl! :)

  2. I'm sorry Sarah, but she simply cannot be 4. I won't allow it.

    Happy Birthday, Helen!!!!

  3. SHE'S FOUR? How did this happen? Aw, what a cutie. Hope she had a great birthday! My kids and I used to watch that video *nostalgic sighing*

  4. Aww, happy, happy birthday to Helen! What a beautiful little (big!) face she has.

  5. What a cutie - you can tell she's full of heart! Thanks for your comment.... I had to delete the post because things are tense enough as they are, ifyouknowwhatImean. :/
