today...

...we got more snow!! and for real this time...sort of. :) And Moses was lucky enough to have daddy around today to really play with him in it. :)
He loved it once again...
...but I think he loved it even more because his daddy was around...he calls daddy his "bess buuudy" aka best buddy. :) Man, I love these guys! :)
...pure cute...if I do say so myself. :)
...in project world...I made these for my boys today. :) I love the sound of that by the way..."my boys". :) Moses has had "blue blankey" since birth...we bought A one just like it...it is THE perfect swaddle (aka baby burrito) blanket. :) And once again I prove that I cannot stop putting initials onto things. :) I also made a couple of other things this morning but they are gifts and I know the recipients read this. :)
I also made this bit of heaven that I stole from Julie...OH man...this is good stuff...and SUPER easy...and good for you...except the brown sugar, butter and chocolate chips. :)
Here is how you make it...(I stole Julies directions word for word. Thanks Julie!)
~*~
Fill a cookie sheet with saltines.
Melt one stick of butter in pan.
Add one cup of brown sugar.
Stir until slightly caramelized.
Pour over saltines and spread evenly.
Cook at 350 for 5 minutes.
Take out of oven and pour entire bag of chocolate chips on top. (I used the mini ones).
As soon as chocolate chips melt, spread them evenly over entire pan.
Stick in fridge to set. (I allowed it to cool to room temp first).
Break or cut into pieces.
YUM!!! :) A perfect little treat! :)

Here are a couple more questions answered:

*How long have I been sewing? Uh...just since last spring really. :) I used to have a not so great machine that made it really frustrating to learn...then it finally just died on me. Then my honey bought me a Husqvarna Emerald 116 and it has been love ever since. :) Her name is Ethel. :) I don't think you have to spend a fortune to get a good machine but I DO think you should spend a little more to ensure that you get something that is easy to use and good quality. A poor quality machine will just leave you frustrated. I taught myself everything I know...I tend to be a visual learner so I enjoy looking at something to try to figure out how it goes together rather than following a pattern and learning how someone else did it.
~*~
Sleep sacks? Go HERE. They are the best...keeps babies and toddlers warm AND one less thing to worry about. :)
~*~
Do I keep a running idea list? Sort of but only in my head. :) I try to make paper lists but that never seems to work for me. :)
~*~
Where do I get most of my fabric? Etsy of course! :) LOVE me some Etsy.
~*~
My camera? Nikon D40x...also a gift from my honey. :) LOVE it!! :)

Ok, enough about me for today...hope your day is great!! :)
Here's to a pants off-dance off kind of day!! :)

...if you are two that is...otherwise it's probably not as appropriate! :)

OK, I have to make that yummy snack soon!! I saw it when Julie made it, and now today on your blog!! It looks AMAZING:) And enjoy the snow for me, missy!!! It is 80 degrees here in San Diego today, boo! What kind of winter is this?! xo!

Julie said...

How good is that stuff???
I renamed it Toffee Crack because I am addicted. 3 batches in 5 days, when one of my kids is allergic to chocolate, and my husband was out of town for 3 of them.
trouble!!!

I had a roommate share this wonderful recipe with me back in college. I couldn't believe it was Saltine crackers! If you love toffee this is a must-try treat...thanks for reminding me of it:)
It looks like a fun snowy day for Moses. Here in CA it's another sunny winter day. It actually makes me laugh seeing snowmen and snowflakes hanging up in my classroom when it's so not snowy outside.

My machine is a husqvarna viking as well... I have had her forever!!! She was NOT cheap!! I'm talking almost $1,000!! I may take her in to see if she is fixable. I just don't have the money for a new machine like her & I hate sewing on the cheap machines you can get at walmart. Somehow the knob on the side cracked & it just is'nt maing complete stitches!! Have any ideas?? :)

I love the snow photos, it looks like so much fun! I would love to take our boys to the snow while they are still little enough to go crazy in it.

We don't get butter in sticks here but I NEED to try that recipe. How much does a stick of butter weigh?

Mummy McTavish said...

I can do tablespoons, YAY! Although with 8 and then the imperial is bigger than the metric so I think I'll need 9 or more but I'll figure that out easy. Anything for a sweet treat!

Thanks for that!

Now to clean the kitchen...
