Do You Wanna Build A SnowMan?!

This week has been Spring Break for the boys. They have spent many hours playing games.  
Today’s game of choice was building a snowman.

Winter Past Times

 Recently SSP and BAP have discovered the fun of ice skating. Maybe they have a future in the Olympics. Thank goodness for hand-me-downs. They are both skating very well for being only their 2nd or 3rd time on the ice. This winter has been perfect.  The ice is pretty solid and the weather has been gorgeous.  I think I may have to find some skates for myself and husband next winter or later this season. 

As well as ice skating the boys have had a blast making tunnels in the snow and sledding to their hearts' content.  They especially loved doing this with their uncles when they came home for Christmas break. It warms my heart to seeing them having so much fun.

Happy (belated) St Patrick's Day

Yesterday we celebrated St Patrick's Day (even though we are not Irish).  Just something fun to do. I made Corn Beef and Cabbage.  It was great. We did still celebrate some on St Patrick's Feast Day. We had friends over for dinner....the boys enjoyed green macaroni and cheese (as well as their own version of Leprechaun Hunt (as Lego Ninja Warriors).  It was so cute.   They had all the neighbor kids joining in the fun and excitement. (I wish I had a picture of the whole posse,)

Corned Beef & Cabbage

2.25lbs seasoned corned beef
1 1/4 cups apple juice
7 red potatoes, washed and quartered
1 karge onion, (cut into 1/8ths)
3 large carrots, peeled and chunked
1 large head cabbage, chunked

Place potatoes in the bottom of greased crockpot.  Top with carrots. Place corned beef on top of that (fat side up).Onions on top of that. Pour apple juice into the pot. Cook on LOW for 8hours. Then put cut up cabbage top and cook for another 4hours on LOW.
