We have had a few weeks of ICK around our house. Lots of tea, tissues and resting.

Now we are on vacation until after the new year. (yay!) So my parents are here and we are doing lots of relaxing, resting and touristy things. Which included a visit to the painted desert/petrified forest national park yesterday.

I hope you all are having a wonderful restful holiday!

We have been sick and fighting off colds. Sorry for the lack of posting. Here is some lovely for you.

Pick up the nearest book of at least 123 pages. Don't pick the coolest or most impressive one, just the NEAREST one.
Open the book to page 123.
Find the fifth sentence and post it!

"An explanation of the extent of any economic loss or porperty damge suffered by the victim."

Work much?

E loves this dressing for thanksgiving. Wild and white rice, celery, onion, almonds and sausage. YUM!
I saw this and made these for the friends I saw Twilight with about a week before the movie. Linda helped. Just basic white cuppies with a cherry filling and cherry bite marks. They were a hit and super moist!
Have made these a few times as well. Coconut macaroons with a chocolate ganache. Yummy!
There was a lot of chess happening for our family this fall (and by that I mean for E of course) but the season is over! The last tournament was held in Tucson the weekend before Thanksgiving and I am thankful! I miss E a bunch because he's gone most weekends in the fall and it's nice to have him home more. Although I do have to say it's always nice when it starts up again since we are generally quite sick of each other after the summer.

Confessions of my inner 13 year old.
  1. I really like the book Twilight.
  2. My friends and I geeked out and saw it on the 21st AKA my 5th anniversary.
  3. In my defense E was out of town.
  4. E and I saw it again this weekend at the Cine Capri.
  5. I didn't LOVE the movie but I didn't hate it either.
  6. I was enthralled by the trailer for Harry Potter.
  7. I almost made E a shirt that said "I'm her Edward" because it's totally true.
  8. The book was better.
  9. I may still see it again!
