Warmth Inside

The past 2 days we have been stuck in the house due to ice! So I've been trying to occupy my time wisely. I have made chili, cleaned, sewed,put together Valentine's bags for my students, updated Facebook, and the list goes on. This afternoon I decided it was time to really put the KitchenAid to work! Here is my creation, a homemade yellow cake (from scratch) and butterceam frosting! I'm not much of a cake decorator, so it definitely tastes better than it looks!
Hope you are staying warm!

Back to school tomorrow!

The Holidays!

So it has been over a while since I have posted and I'm not sure where to start in order to catch up. So I think I will start with the most obvious thing that has happened lately...The Holidays! I can't believe they are already over but it was a GREAT time. We spend Thanksgiving with both sides of our family and even made a trip to Missouri to visit our grandparents!
I had the opportunity to spend lots of time with my family after Ryan left for the San Diego bowl game trip (which we won't talk about). Anyway, we spent most of our time eating, cooking, and playing LOTS of games. We played everything from Nertz to Yahtzee to Battle of the Sexes. It was a great time to just hang out and relax and enjoy each others company.
Here are a few of the great memories in pictures! Enjoy!

Wishing you a blessed and memorable 2009!
