Our Favorite

Hannah's got it down good!
February 2010

Strawberries dipped in chocolate is one of my MOST FAVORITE things in the whole world. I have many "food favorites" and they seem to switch around every couple of months or so, but these little beauties will be a favorite forever! Now it has become one of our family favorites. So we started a new tradition. Sunday's are our strawberry dippin' day. We may not do it EVERY Sunday but it's close to it! :)

This is how we do it ~ I know there are many ways out there to do this....but this is our FAV!

1. Wash the strawberries
2. Let them dry. This is very, very
important. pat them dry, lay them out to
dry- whatever it takes. They need to be
completely dry.
3. Get Bakers Dipping chocolate, real milk chocolate
it comes in a little container, labeled- heat & dip
follow directions to melt.
4. Dip the strawberries and lay on wax paper on a
cookie sheet
5. put in fridge for 15 minutes. They have to harden
enough to where they POP of the tray.
They're not to hard and not to soft. They are PERFECT!

oh yeah....and DON'T count the calories :)

This is Matt's 5th grade teacher Mrs. Warren at the Syracuse Arts Academy. She is SUCH a GOOD teacher. She was always so positive and just always had a way to make you feel good. He really thinks she is the greatest.

I asked Matt to tell me 5 cool things about her. this is what he said:

1. Favorite female teacher
2. She did SOMETHING..... WOW.... about math. I don't know what it was, but she just for some reason made me love math. She made me awesome at math.
3. She would give me harder assignments especially in math.
4. She's funny, awesome
5. favorite sayings she would say- "Matt....your not going to die!" and
"Make it a great day!"

Wedding dress shopping

January 16, 2010

Emalee Rogers is getting married!! So that means it's time to go shopping.
We all met up Saturday morning at her house all ready for the big adventure. We went to a couple of places but found "the one" at the second store. It was at the Gateway - Latterday Bride. The minute she put it on- I knew it was the one. We didn't want to push her into getting something that she really didn't want. So we all tried to keep our thoughts to ourselves. The minute she put it on- you could tell.... she LOVED it! She looked so beautiful!!! I have decided I LOVE weddings. They are just way to much FUN!!

Now she feels way comfortable!!
That's what a soccer jacket can do!

Melissa, Sabree, Emalee, and Tina (Emalee's future mother in law)

After a fun day shopping we ate at the Melting Pot.
It was my first time there and YES.....I loved it!!
