Snowflakes & Cappuccino

It is a quiet Friday morning, as the kids are off to school, little Tubbers is taking a nap(poor guy could hardly breathe last night from the congestion), and Lala and I have been playing in the snow! OK, so it isn't a lot of snow, and it melts as soon as it hits the ground, but the flakes are so big and beautiful...perfect for catching on your tongue. Apparently to Lala, it is now officially Christmas Eve, so she would like to have her presents, please. Boy, I've got some convincing to do today.... once Lala's mind is made up, it may as well be the law of the land.



After our snow play, we shared monster cookies dipped in White chocolate and caramel Cappuccino....from our very own kitchen! You know those awesome Cappuccinos you get from Holiday, Super America, etc? We've now got the same set-up in our kitchen. Only the best for our family when Bob is in charge! We won't go into the details of the many hours (and countless trips to the hardware store)it took to find just the right pieces to hook it up , and then the hours of frustration making the pieces work again after disassembling them for cleaning... And it has hot chocolate that is ALWAYS ready for the kids...perfect! I would not be surprised in the least if a slushie machine appears in our kitchen next. Thank you to my sons Alex & Michael who were my taste testers last night to make sure things were working right!

Hi guys:) I just wanted to let you know that...WE'RE MOVING BACK!! We'll be there hopefully by the time school starts for the kids. Still trying to figure SO many things out, but we're comin'!
After living in 100 degree weather for 6 1/2 years, we're going to need to come over and use your hot chocolate machine...See you soon! P.S. I have so many email addresses for Bob that I don't know which is the current one anymore:(
