Grandpa was into the game, and Grandma in the background was already checking her watch.
Shirley's fudge bars... the thick layer of fudge is hiding in the middle of the bars.
Colton had his own idea of entertainment. Gotta love a kid who seeks the quiet activity amidst the chaos.
I've played with a good chili recipe for so long and this is the one that gets requested all the time. I had to make a triple batch just to insure a little left over for lunch tomorrow.
I got my "Chili" on this afternoon. And then I made some fudge oatmeal bars. They are like a gooey oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. They are definitely not low fat, low calorie, low carb or diet anything. They are indeed a happy flavor of yum. We got a get out of jail free card when it came to Colton's hockey game this afternoon. We were happy to accept and stay home. Grandpa and Grandma came over and we enjoyed what was truly a great game of football to watch.
This morning I actually started my day with an email from Mckmama. Last night she wrote about her cruise and shared some amazing bright colored tropical themed sand and water and boat photos of our little miracle baby Stellan. I commented to her that I could ALMOST feel the sun coming through those pictures, and she replied to me that she should post a few more photos then so perhaps I could REALLY feel the sun... It was such a pleasant surprise to see that little note in my box this morning. I don't know why these small gestures always touch me. But they do.
After my Friday morning fiasco at Target, I'm giving it another try tomorrow. If I don't show up in blog world by tomorrow afternoon, you should be worried and consider sending a rescue party : )
