No, we did not get snow. But I absolutely love this picture of Rew (age 9 months) watching his dad shovel snow:
This is the sixth picture from my sixth file. (You have no idea how glad I am that this was not a picture of rotting food!) I was tagged by Rebecca at Turned Loose and Shana at Blaze ‘n’ Crochet. One of the rules for the sixth picture is that I am supposed to write a story for the picture, but I don’t think the picture needs an explanation.
Here is a follow up picture of Rew a year later:
Here are the rules:
1) Go to your photo folders on your computer
2) Select the sixth file folder
3) Open it and select the sixth photo in that file folder
4) Write a story for that picture, post it and
5) Select six bloggy friends to tag
6) Be sure to let them know they've been tagged
Since I already broke rule 4, I have decided to follow the example of Rebecca and break rule 5. I am inviting anybody who would like to play along, to do so. Even if you don’t play along, it is fun to just go take a peak at your sixth picture. If you decide to post your sixth picture, please leave a link in the comment section, so I can check it out.
I will leave you with one more picture:
Tigger made a snow Rew to commemorate Rew’s first snow. Notice the grimace and up stretched arms? It completely captures him at that age! If he wasn’t being held, then he wasn’t happy. Rew decided that since he was born into a family of four big people that he should be held 24/7. Now he is a rambunctious toddler and it is hard to get him to stop for a couple minutes for a cuddle.
After playing in the snow, you need cookies and cocoa. I love baking when it is cold, but No Bake Cookies are a good snow day stand by. They cook up quickly and the peanut butter and oatmeal makes them a bit heartier than standard cookies.
No Bake Cookies
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 magarine or butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 cups rolled oats (if you use the quick oats you need to use more, 1/2 – 1 cup, until the batter isn't runny)
Mix sugar, cocoa, milk and magarine in a saucepan. Stir over medium heat until it boils. Remove from heat and cool 1 minute. Then add remaining ingrediants and mix well. Drop by tablespoon (you can also use 1/4 to make large cookies) onto wax paper. Let cool completely before removing from wax paper.
I am thoroughly enjoying the autumn weather, but after looking at snow pictures, I am almost looking forward to winter. Almost! Are you looking forward to winter?
