Summer is over

SNOW!!!!! It's too early for snow,..... or is it?

Yes, this is the first snow of the season.

I notice little itty bitty flecks of snow in the air when I dropped *Z* off at the sitter's house this morning, on my way to work, and the flakes just kept getting bigger most of the day. As you can see in the photo above, by early evening there really wasn't any accumulation on the ground but the trees on the hills were getting some accumulation.

By nightfall it had started sticking to the grass (as you can see in the photos above).
And here is a couple shots take at about 11:30 p.m. these last two were taken from the same places as the first.

I never got a chance to post these pictures when I took them.... someone keeps interupting my blogging time (could it be the little *Z*?).
These are pictures of a cloth book that I made for him last summer. He still loves it... as do I because it cost me nothing to make, I just used scraps of material from my sewing cabinet.

Teething Biscuits from Baby Cereal

I was looking for a way to use up the extr boxes of baby cereal that I have and after doing an online seach I found this recipe.
Teething Biscuit Recipe

2 Tbs Shortening
1/2 C. sugar
1 egg
1tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp water
1 1/2 C. baby cereal

Heat oven to 300 degrees. Cream shortening and sugar. Add eggs, baking soda, salt, vanilla, and water. Mix until well blended. Gradually stir in cereal. Knead until smooth. Pat into rectangle. Cut into 12 1" bars, smooth edges so they will not be sharp. Place on ungreased sheet. Bake 20-30 min or until dry. Store in uncovered container overnight.
