The Tuesday after Christmas

We had a very nice Christmas....still working on the leftovers from the dinner.....it was yummy and the two favorites were the green bean casserole (the standard mushroom soup/onion) the kids can't get enough of it...later in the evening, I heard them in the kitchen and what were they munching on? the casserole of course.....
also every bit of the congealed salad disappeared at the dinner table...nothing left to put away....

here is Jayden with his new baby play mat...he just loves it...his other grandma gave it to him and its a big hit....and the big news around here is that he's starting to roll over...a real mile stone......she also gave him the cute Christmas sleeper....we gave him a baby hoodie and jeans, and a baby cell phone that actually records as well as repeats  phrases.......
This year, I  put this vintage Christmas table cloth I inherited...its so pretty..and has hand painted poinsettias around the border........
Our  youngest son led the grace at the table, we all held hands and were really blest.....his brother gave him a new Bible and a nice leather cover for it.......as well as a second one for his girlfriend.........
I got a new digital camera! and am still trying to figure out how to use it..although its similar to the old one I had....Alan tripped and dropped the old one, it hit the concrete...hasn't worked well since so it was a great and welcome surprise to get this one....the broker we do alot of work for gave it to us.....the pics above were taken using it..its a Sony Cyber Shot.....

I wanted to share this quick and easy recipe for Rock Road Fudge....tried to take a photo of the batch we made but can't get it right with this new camera......the fudge is very good and sooooo easy.....

you just take 2 cups of chocolate chips and a can of sweetened condensed milk, mix in a microwavable bowl....microwave  until melted ..about a minute or two.....take the bowl out and add 1 t. of vanilla, stir until mixture is really smooth, then add a cup of chopped walnuts, and 3 cups of mini marshmallows..stir well, then spread in a foil lined 13 by 9" pan..let cool. This recipe would be great for older kids and teens to make anytime they wanted something sweet......no candy thermometer needed!
