Lots To Blog And Be Happy About

I feel like I haven't done this in forever! I have been so busy working, taking pictures, and getting ready for christmas that this little thing was put on the back burner. so now I have lots to blog about.
last week I took pictures of Eden's cousins. These kids are seriously gorgeous! and they have the most insane eyes!

see what I mean?

I just love kids feet

anyways.. on to something I love



these little babies are soooo amazingly delicious! I have never met someone who didn't love them

so first you melt two sticks butter
add 1/2 cup milk
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar

bring that to a boil and add 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
reduce heat to low and cook for 5-6 minutes

then put a layer of club crackers on the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan then pour half of the graham cracker mixture over the crackers repeat that and put another layer of crackers on top of the second half of the mixture

then melt 1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
2/3 cup peanut butter
use to frost bars
enjoy :)

yesterday I also tackled the home made meatball
and surprisingly I would say I succeeded!

take 1 lb ground meat (I used venison because it was all I had but ground chuck would be really good)
1/3 cup crushed club crackers
1/3 cup parmesan cheese
1 egg
salt, pepper, garlic salt, and italian seasoning to taste
mix it all together
roll into balls
then roll them around in a pan over medium heat just to brown the outside a little bit (don't worry about getting it completely brown)
put them on a baking sheet and finish them off in the oven at 350 degrees

serve with pasta and sauce or on italian bread with marinara sauce and provolone cheese yummmm

so as I said in the title- I have lots to be happy about
yummy food
an awesome baby-daddy that went out and cut down a christmas tree for me in the cold with his gimpy shoulder
an awesome 8 month old who is my bestest friend
super cool siblings (ugh could I have gotten more lucky? no)
amazingly selfless and loving parents and grandparents
a nice cozy home
not having to work on any of the upcoming holidays :)

probably not in that order seeing as though food was first haha

but that's all for today
