Which character are you?

I love this movie. I enjoy the nostalgia of it. I would have to agree with Ralphie, that there is always just one present I have to have.

Marshmallow World

I thought this was just a hilarious video. I love this song and these guys do it great.

Does It Count If You Don't Bake Them?

I thought that I would join The Sparrow's Nest Cyber Christmas Cookie Exchange. Here is my favorite cookie recipe. David and I would make these whenever we were craving something sweet.

No Bake Cookies

1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cup sugar
3 Tbl. cocoa

Bring to a boil and cook for 1 full minute. Remove from heat and add:

1/2 cup peanut butter
1 t vanilla
3 cups oats

Stir and drop on wax paper. Cool for at least 30 minutes. These just get better the longer you let them sit.

Wow! Its been awhile!

Good thing I don't have any readers yet. You'd think I had forgotten you. I promise to start writing now. I have more time and more thoughts.

To update, I am selling my house. Yes, another victim of too much money going out and not enough coming in. I will miss my little bungalow, but am looking forward to moving. I will be living with my middle niece and her family in the house that David and I lived in our whole time together. Guess that's where I should be, huh?

My little family is smaller, too. Duke decided to move on. One eveing this summer, he went out and never came home. I know what you're thinking, but I prefer to think he just found a new home. My oldest niece, her husband and two daughters were living with me at the time. There are times that I would have liked to find a quieter place to stay, so I certainly don't blame Duke.
