A little snow fun...

We woke up to snow last weekend and Ruby was thrilled. Our last few snows have been on days she couldn't play outside for different reasons and she was getting annoyed at being thwarted out of snow-playing. And since it was Saturday Bobby was home and was able to play with the kiddos.

We think we have to get a real sled to play with.

Making Doughnuts

I've made a few batches of doughnuts from recipes I've found online and they all originated from the Top Pot Hand Forged Doughnuts cookbook. So I made a little mental note and dropped a few hints that I wanted the cookbook for Christmas. My sister pulled through for me! And so far I've made blueberry cake:

And apple fritters:

We all loved them. Especially Ruby and Jack. We had the apple fritters for dessert last night and there was one left. Bobby and I were cleaning up the kitchen and I heard some commotion from the kiddos in the family room. I turned to see Jack running like mad around the sofa, apple fritter in hand....Ruby chasing after him screaming, "I want a bite! Can I have a bite?!"

Our next recipe to try is Boston Creams. Yum!
