the Perfect Pecan Pretzel

My mother-in-law dipped pretzels in almond bark for a snack one day. Everyone ate them so fast I didn't get any. When she decided to make them again the next day I went over and "helped" make them to make sure that I actually got some that time. I remember in 5th grade not liking sweet & salty things, I even felt a little nauseous when I ate a chocolate covered pretzel. I certainly have gotten over that, I couldn't eat enough of these.

Bathtime Buddies

Today I gave both my children a bath and to save time I did it at the same time. Of course I had my new camera right by my side (since it hasn't really left my side since I got it, you might even find me sleeping with it). I snapped this photo and thought is was really cute, I love my daughter's super sized eyes.

In Focus?

During the Christmas season there are many things that you can put your focus on, presents, decorations, food, family . . . This is the first Christmas that my daughter was really able to understand what the true meaning of Christmas is. For the month of December we read through a advent calendar of events that explained the story of Christ's birth. It's so easy, especially children to focus on opening presents and getting, getting, getting. I really wanted to have my daughter think about giving and others. I can't say that I succeeded but we will not give up.
