Ooey Gooey Yummy-FAST!

Disclaimer:  While this may bring you momentary joy, this is not vegetable-based, not healthy in any way, and probably not the best choice for those who may be training for a black-belt test in 9 weeks :)

But, YUM!   Just line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper.  Place little pretzels on paper.


Line with ROLO candies.  Melt in oven for a few moments- or til soft.


Push a pecan half into each candy and VOILA! :)


Perfect for movie nights with PapPap :)

winter sights


OK—I do prefer the warm sun and GREEN grass, but I’ll admit there are some pretty sights of winter— like the deer frequenting our back yard— remind me of this when I complain about how much they will just LOVE our newly planted vegetation this spring :)

I know, I know—every year I post a picture like this.  Guess I just need a reminder that the sun is still there :)

Locks of Love—finally :)


Little Lydia heard about Locks of Love last year and thought that it would be really neat to help other children in need of hairpieces.  So—on went the growth process.  And on--- and on--- and on----

After months of tears (but thankful to have hair to be in tears over) as she’s attempted to keep out the knots, the day finally came~
