Here in Pinehurst, NC, we don’t get much snow. It seems we usually get one or two days of snow each year + typically that’s in January. But yesterday, it snowed! ALL DAY!
So yesterday, in between pulling out pastries from the oven, I made these little snow friends, just outside my kitchen door…
But, if you [...]
Especially dipped in chocolate for my boys. They love strawberries, too!
We made several batches of these little cuties yesterday…
Our “Happy Birthday Jesus!” cake part 2…
With Christmas just a day away, we thought we’d make a cake…

When Winston was little, he mistakenly referred to hot coco as “snow coco.” We loved it so much, we’ve called it that ever since.
Merry Christmas everyone!
As one of our family traditions, we all sit down together + make an ornament for the year. Each year, I search the web, or go to Michael’s, looking for craft ideas for our ornament that year. In past years, we’ve made a reindeer hand (one of my favorites!), little cars, hanging stockings, balls, snowmen, [...]
