Weekend recap

This weekend can be summed up in one word…SNOW! We got 25 inches and it is still a mess around here. We started to dig out last night, but our main driveway and secondary roads are still in bad shape. We haven’t left the house since Friday when we were able to sneak in a quick Target and Blockbuster trip before the storm hit.


My car is under there somewhere


Measurement outside our back door


Some of the snow that drifted was about 5-6 feet high

The weekend has been filled with lots of cooking, catching up on shows, shoveling and the Super Bowl. This afternoon I made cake balls for Valentine’s Day and that has really been it. Skating was obviously cancelled yesterday, but 3 hours of shoveling was quite the workout.

Omigosh! You are not going to believe this! We are in the process of making red velvet cake balls, too! We baked the cake today and are making the balls tomorrow. I know it shouldn't take two days (ha ha), but we got sidetracked :) Wendy

I second the Omigosh!! That. is. A. LOT. of. snow. Wow!! I feel guilty that Michigan hasn't gotten any of the crazy snow...and we're usually the ones who are getting slammed.

Your cake balls look really yummy...I am planning to make them. Someday. :)
