Ina's Stuffed Mushrooms

I have been really slacking in my Barefoot Bloggers group. I am always really excited to see what recipes we  are going to make and then never get around to making them. This month I vowed to make at least one of the recipes. I lucked out and the recipe was perfect for Christmas Dinner. These really were divine. Michelle of Welcome to the Club chose stuffed mushrooms. I did have a little extra stuffing leftover but added it to the pan to cook. My daughter loved the stuffed but didn't want the mushroom. Thiswas another great recipe by Ina. In my hustling and bustling I never got around to taking a picture. You can check out what other bloggers did here.

Christmas is almost here....

It has been a fun month for all of us. We always head out the weekend of Thanksgiving to get our tree. This year we went to a u-cut tree farm about 15 minutes from us. The kids fell in love with "Shaggy" our tree. It is a pine tree but has soft needles. It wasn't my choice this year so that is all I can say about our tree.... We also went to a Polar Express party at Barnes and Noble. The kids heard the story, had hot chocolate and cookies. Anna had a birthday party sleepover with friends from her school. The theme was pet parade. It was so cute seeing the kids and there beloved stuffed animals. We have had friends come and visit from out of town this past weekend. We had so much fun catching up that I didn't get any pictures. Christmas is right around the corner. I have done some baking and caramel making, the presents are wrapped and the house decorated. We can't wait for Christmas. Merry Christmas!

Trying New Things

This past year has been a year of change. We moved from a huge running community to an area that does not have the biking and running trails...
