Welcome to the Snow . . .

After being here for over a year, I'm really beginning to believe the "acclamation" thing people told me would happen. (and I checked spell-check for that word)
Today it was 25 degrees and we were outside. No problem.

But they forgot to tell us about this part . . .

So we went inside and made "trifle" to fulfill Fo'ou's craving for food from home . . . to bring some warmth to our holidays.
And Jody, if I used your trifle bowl, it would have looked even prettier.

There goes the "good mom" thing

"Mom, take a picture of me drinking my hot chocolate. I'll wave like this."

"Yeah, Mom, and I'll pretend I don't know you're taking a picture."
"mom, i'll just cut up Eden's picture she was so proud of while you take pictures."
Are my kids destined for Hollywood, or what???

Seeing is Believing

My Uncle Dale used to tell this joke - something like . . ."What is green and goes in kids mouths?" (Mom, help me out here) anyway, the punchline is "Kids don't eat brocolli" I know, I just killed it. Anyway, I felt like a good mom this week. Uncle Mario, this is for you. (He hated the fact that I made brocolli for a Sunday dinner long ago.)

And along with seeing things not believed in, here is "Prancer". She came to visit my Kindergarten class this week. Rudolph sent his love.

This was the best turkey EVER and I'm not just saying that because it was the first one I ever made. Incase I forget for next year, it is the Oprah recipe from her nice chef lady on TV and it's on my DVR so incase I forget for next year, that's how I made it. But that means I have to have DISH network for another year, which is no good. Direct TV is the way to go. Oh, and I won't bother with the stuffing. NObody ate it. Not even me. I just made it out of obligation. Oh, and Katrina's pumpkin dessert was a hit. Oh, and make the jello pretzel salad, and don't forget the corn in the freezer. The olives only got put on fingers - not in mouths, so I guess that counts. One more thing - the chocolate satin pie from Marie Calendars has to be from the restaurant, not the box. Ok. Now If I can just remember to read this next year, I'll be good.
