SoCal Rain 1/12/17

We have been having some much needed heavy rains. According to my own rain gauges we have had almost three inches where I live in the last two days. Here is a quick video of my very soggy flooded backyard.

Make sure to follow us on Youtube so you don't miss any of our videos.

Post Christmas 2016 And A Look Ahead To 2017

We had such a flurry of festivities over here. A little post Christmas 2016 update.
As usual the hubby outdid himself with all the decorating this year. I am so blessed to have him love to do it all. He really is a blessing. He gets it out, decorates and usually puts it all away with a little help from me. It really frees me up to do all the cooking and prep work.

Sweet gifts from friends like my little red cow creamer and a prim garden gnome that came as a surprise in the mail, just so appreciated.

We had parties to attend and 20 people over here on Christmas day. Our numbers are growing and we always welcome friends who would like to come. By far one treat everyone loved and requested were our rice krispy treat balls.  We made two huge batches. Aren't they fun?

The big guy and I look a little serious as we were heading out to a party but really we are so happy and thankful for another year of blessings with our family and friends and for all of you who come and take the time to read our little blog. We are looking forward to 2017 and sharing our home, hubby's holiday decor, food and tips to keep things simple in the coming year. Please check in often and again thanks and Happy New Year!!

Rice Krispy Treat Balls

Rice Krispy Treat balls are a fun colorful way to change up the usual rice krispy treat idea.

We made these for an ugly sweater party and they were a hit. The rolling into a ball keeps the krispy treat nice and moist. We will make these for Christmas day as well as a perfect Christmas buffet dessert because you can eat with your hands.
