Busy Weekend

We were able to celebrate two birthdays, visit with family, and help a couple of new people discover LOST this weekend. Joel's birthday was yesterday and our nephew Sanders birthday is Wednesday. We had a combined party on Saturday complete with two cakes and gifts. I only have pictures of Joel's cake today...but more to come I promise.

Joel's LOST cake...if you don't watch Lost you won't get it.

Side view...

Last night we got Nathan and Deborah to watch the first two episodes of LOST, and we sent them home with the DVD set of the first season. Hopefully they'll get hooked on it!

Hope you had as good a weekend as we did.

Chocolate Chips...Yummy!

On Monday I was perusing through my usual reading of the blogger dashboard when I came across this new recipe on Our Best Bites. Once I realized I already had EVERYTHING I needed to make the chocolate chip cookies at home, I naturally decided I'd make them, that night.

So here is the recipe: Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Go check it out, and then immediately go make them. Just do it!

Ok, so I'm behind. We had snow on Sunday, but I couldn't get the pictures ready to post until today. Now for those of you not from the south this may seem like nothing, but for us it is AMAZING! Haha! It has been at least 8-10 years since I have seen snow actually accumulate and stick! So here it is:

This is at about 6:30 a.m. when the snow was still falling. (Picture taken through the window because it was too cold to go out!)

Scene from out the front door.
Looking out toward the pasture.

This is around 9 a.m. It had stopped falling, and we went out and threw a couple of snowballs.

This was too much fun for us. Hope y'all had a great weekend too!
