we go from crazy snow storms to bitter cold.
the bluest winter sky….but baby its cold!!
the ice has been a big problem this year….
we had a neighborhood party a couple weeks ago
we try to have one every year AFTER the holidays, when most of us get cabin fever….
so we cleaned the house like crazy….seems like that is the only time this house does get clean….
30 neighbors, yummy food…it was a great night!
a picture of the kids waiting at the door….we knew it was going to be a late night so they partied in their pjs….they were so excited…..we love our neighbors!
i made cake of course! chocolate with caramel frosting and heath candy on top.
Caramel Frosting….easy peasy!
melt 1 stick of butter on low heat, add 1 cup of brown sugar, cook about 2 mins. stirring constantly until blended, add 1/4 cup of milk slowly, cook until boil for 1 min, remove from heat and cool 5 mins. in mixing bowl add 1 cup of confectioners sugar.
you can add more sugar if you want it thicker….or less if you want more of a glaze. so yummy…..and impossible not to taste when its warm!!!
we are Valentine Central around here….the kids are crazy about Valentines!!! i bought these cute little mailboxes at target last week and they love getting mail!!!
i made these winter survival kits for the teachers
tissue holder, airborne, sanitizer and chocolates of course!!!
it has been a random kind of week around here…..it has been a full week of school for the kids….no snow days, hurray!!!
