For Katie’s birthday Addy and JJ helped me mix up the cake.
Thank you to Laura for capturing the moments.
Macarons ~ a small round cake with a meringue-like consistency, made with egg whites, sugar, and powdered almonds and consisting of two halves sandwiching a creamy filling.
Our son Dan surprised us all with his perfected Macarons for us to try. They were amazing!
We had our first snowstorm of 2022 starting late Sunday night into Monday the 3rd of January. It snowed all day on Monday. We shoveled off the deck but kept a section to measure our snow falls. Our neighbor plowed our front drive up to our garage on Monday and for that we are grateful. Here are photos of our snow piles!
The photo above is just for perspective. It was taken on Christmas. Notice how far up off the snow laden deck Joseph, Mary and the Baby Jesus are.
Here was the snowfall from early Monday morning with Mary just barely visible.
After we shoveled off the deck.
We have an accumulation of about 20 inches out in our yard right now. This is the most snow we’ve had accumulate since we moved here in 2018. Other years the snow melted off in between storms. This year is different with temps low enough that the snow has not melted off. We have more snow coming.
Snow hats all around!
Hope 2022 is starting off well for you!
