Stampin' Along

Y'all, last night was Stamp and Chat and again, we had lovely time, delicious foods, and made great cards.

I need to start taking pics of our food...they're always a great treat!

Mint Poke Cake

Today I made my very first poke cake, what a day ! I got my recipe from Pinterest, of course, and here it is for your enjoyment:
  • 1 box devils food cake, plus ingredients to make cake
  • 1 (11.75-oz) jar Smucker's hot fudge sauce
  • 1 (14-oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 tsp mint extract
  • 1 (8-oz) container Cool Whip
  • 1 (10-oz) bag Andes baking chips
Bake cake in a 9x13-inch pan according to direction on the package While cake is baking, mix milk, hot fudge sauce and mint extract. When the cake is done and while it's still hot, poke holes in it. I did it with the end of a large mixing spoon. Pour milk mixture over the cake. Allow cake to cool completely. Sprinkle half the Andes over cake. Spread Cool Whip over the top, then sprinkle the remaining Andes on top. Chill in refrigerator.
Guys, this is delicious. Of course, I couldn't find Andes mint chips, so I had to chop my own, which was annoying, but not too bad. At least it was good.

Choo Choo!

Today I ran some errands with the fellas, we went to a mall that's a bit of distance from our houses. As we were there, they saw a train that was just going around the mall. The fellas begged to go on it, but at first I resisted. Finally, we made a deal and they got to ride the train. They had a great time, of course.

Time for Sweaters!

Guys, its cold. We had a giant snowstorm over the weekend, so now everything is covered in snow and cold. So with this weather, its time to make Cookie warm.

She's probably mad, but I think she looks dashing.

We did it!

We did it! We finished the month! Although it could have gone worse, there were definitely some days that we struggled. But we finished, and here's a celebratory picture of Gecko!

Angry Fella

Today I was watching the fellas as their mom was at the dentist, and after a walk to the gas station (literally this is their favorite activity, I don't understand it but they love it) we were inside getting warm and enjoying our treats. Darth was lightly caressing my leg with his foot, which I don't think he realized he was doing it. I sent a pic of him doing that to his mom and to Husband, and Husband wrote back "ah I don't think he's scared enough of me". I told Darth to make an angry face to send back, and he supplied me with:

To which Husband replied with an angry face back, and when Darth saw it he's like, oh why is uncle mad at me?" In one of the cutest small voices I've heard, so I had to work overtime to reassure him that nobody is mad at him, and everyone is okay. But look at that angry face! So cute.

Dancing Fools

I have a small dancing Santa in the living room. You turn him on, and he plays "Rockin' around the Christmas tree" as he moves side to side. The fellas tried to mimic the Santa, and it was so funny. I just love when they do this cute stuff.
