So Ridiculously Happy To Be Home


Just got home from our best vacation ever... seriously. Ever. And I can't wait to tell you all about it!

For now, I just have to say that I have the cutest little boys in the world! Dang, I love them!


And for now, I also just have to say that I am very, super, really happy to sleep in my own bed.

I'm so glad you're home safe and sound and that you had a beyond awesome vacation, but I AM sad to report that we attended a neighborhood BBQ at the Browns and I missed seeing you!

Next time, hopefully...

Snowball Cookies

[image]
It snowed this week. And though we don't have many family traditions, one that we started when we became a family was to make Snowball Cookies on the first snowy day of the season. And since we like cookies so much, we usually make them on other random, snowy days, too. They help ease my pain and anxiety over winter. You know-- carbs. 
There is nothing better than Snowball Cookies and hot chocolate on a snowy day.
Snowball Cookies 1 c. butter 1/2 c. confectioners sugar 2 tsp. vanilla 2 c. sifted flour 1 c. chocolate chips 1 c. chopped pecans (an option I don't use) Additional confectioners sugar (for rolling)
Beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add remaining ingredients, mix. Use a teaspoonful (I use a small ice cream scoop) of dough and roll into small ball. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes. Cool slightly and roll in confectioners sugar. (I roll them twice.)

I HATE Walmart

And I am never shopping there again.

Aaron and I joke every time we are in that store that it smells like a fart. But it's really not very funny, because it does smell like someone tooted. In every Walmart I've been in, I've smelled someone's stink. It makes me want to puke. But I go back because it's cheap- I am always able to get all of my groceries and then some for around $100. And I can also grab some fabric, tires, and plants for my yard while I'm grocery shopping.

Saturday night, Maddy and I made a late night dash to Walmart. I needed groceries, and she needed some material to make a pillow in one of her classes at school. The first thing I went to put in my shopping cart was french bread. No french bread. None. Anywhere. I didn't even necessarily need the fresh stuff. I would've taken the stuff in the plastic bag with the twist tie, but they didn't even have that. Second on my list- tator tots. (I've heard from a million people that a ce…

It Was A Pink Thanksgiving

The day we left for St. George, Charlie & Jack woke up with pink eye.

The conversation in my head went something like this:

Angel Me: Should we still go?
Devil Me: Of course you should still go! You can't cancel a trip like this! Everyone is looking forward to spending Thanksgiving in St. George. Go!
Angel Me: But pink eye is the most contagious disease in the world. If anyone so much as looks at them, they will end up with it. And we are staying with 2 other families.
Devil Me: Call the doctor, get an antibiotic for the boys, and keep them quarantined until they aren't contagious anymore. Everything will be fine.
Angel Me: Promise?
Devil Me: I promise. Now go call the doctor, you little worry wart, you.

So, we went to St. George and had a great time! And no one else got pink eye... until the day we came home. (Sorry Shauna.) And then Maddy woke up with it this morning. (Dang it!)Anyway, here is a quick jaunt down memory lane from our unconventional, non-traditional Thanksgiving i…
