Family Fun Activity

Thursday, December 17, 2009

During my Christmas Break, it is my goal to make some homeade bread. that's right, I mean from scratch, the yeast, the kneading, all of it, I have never done it and its time to learn! Having a little extra time, I feel it will be good to have a project to look forward to. I will try to take photos of how it turns out and post them for you after the new year.

Another family fun activity that was recently shared with me that I enjoyed, is making snow cream. Ice Cream from the snow. The kids really had fun with this and have asked to eat some each night since we made it. Here is the recipe for you to try:

1 gallon of snow
2 cups milk
1 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon vanilla
Mix all together and enjoy!
Have fun! Don't forget to stay away from the yellow snow!

The Best Days of my Life

Thursday, December 3, 2009

Every year, my husband and girls use the day after Thanksgiving to drive to a local tree farm
to cut down our family's Christmas tree. This year was no exception. My husbands aunt owns a tree farm in Bear Creek. We took a lazy day drive, enjoying the sun all the way and after a little hiking, we found what was to be the tree lucky enough to go into our living room!
A few swear words later, Jay had cut down the tree and we were off.
Of course, before cutting down the tree, we take a family photo of it for memory. I would have to say these are some of the best days of my life.
