From the 70's to snow.

Our weather is so strange here in Colorado.
all last week we had record highs of 70's and 75.
It was so nice and I was loving it.

I took this picture on Tuesday while I was out it was 70 out and just lovely.
All over the news there was talk of the big snowstorm that was coming.
It was hard for me to believe that snow was coming.
Later that day it started to get a little cooler.
The kids came home from school with talk of excitement that there was going to be a snow day.
Ben was thrilled he loves his days off from school.
Madieline slept that night with her Jammies on inside out and backwards, flushed 3 ice cubes down the toilet and sang frosty the snowman while the freezer door was open and spined in a circle three times.
Who new there was so many hope for snow day rituals.

I woke up early the next morning looked out the window and it had hardly snow.
I checked my emails and there was no email from the schools saying that there was no school or even a late start.
I got the big kids out the door.
Then went to wake up Ben.
He was so sad when he realized he was going to school he cried and put the covers over his head and said I am so mad there is no snow day.
After he got dressed ate breakfast I dressed him in his snow clothes and he was out the door sad to go to school but Happy there was snow.
He loves snow.

Later in the day we got a lot more snow and Ben was happy to play in it when he came home.
I am happy that the snow will be melted by the weekend and that we will be back in the 70's for Halloween.
It has been 6 years since we have been able to trick or treat with out the snow.
It will be Ben's first year not trick or treating in the snow.
He is so happy about that.

Adamant 6*** to be exact is our new address come May/ June
Windsor: is our House style
Macadamia: is our indoor paint color
Wolf Ranch is neighborhood we are building in.
The picture was our empty lot!!
Yay we are building a Home!!

This is for the most part what our house will look like.
It will be a different color and have a few modifications.
We have to finish the finale design and then they will start digging in December or Jan depending on how long it takes us to get everything finalized.
I am so happy I love the neighborhood and cant wait to be apart of our new community.
It's not to far from where we already are so that will be good for the kids.
They will all be in the same schools besides Ben I think I will put him in the neighborhood school.

Chesey ,bacon ,onion goodness

I saw this recipe on a blog a while back it was called blooming onion bread.
It looked so easy and yummy to make.
There was one flaw Green onions.
I am very allergic to them but still wanted to try the recipe.
So I tweaked it a lot and this is what I came up with.
I have no clue what to call it other than super yummy.
So here is how you make it.
One sour dough round
1 medium onion
real bacon bits
balsamic vinegar
Colby jack cheese

Chop the onions and caramelize them in the balsamic vinger.

Slice the read length wise and crosswise almost all the through.
Slice or shred the cheese and place it in between the bread slices.
The sprinkle the onions and bacon bits on the top of the bread.
Then melt butter and pour i on top of the bread.
Then wrap in tin foil bake at 400 for 15 mins
next unwrap the bread and bake for 15 more minutes.
Let it cool a bit then let you taste buds do the happy dance!!
It so yummy we have eaten it at least once a week for the last 4 weeks.

Dale is back to work and that has been such a relief and joy to our family.
We have also started a secret project that I might let you in on this week.
Dale is a little obsessed with the project I am just happy that this project will allow me to get what I want.
It's so exciting but I promised Dale I would wait a little bit longer to share.
These last 2 weeks of Dale being at work has made me realize how much I missed my routean.
This is also the first time I have had no kids at home during the day or a husband.
I miss little M and little J the sweethearts I watched in Alaska, but I am loving my alone time sorta.
I tend to get scared that a crazy person is going to attack me while in the shower.
Thanks again to all those who prayed and lent good thoughts while Dale was out of work.
So look for my blog post this week I promise they will be fun and you might get to find out about our secret project!
