Lots has been going in my life lately- time with friends and family, making new recipes, and trying to enjoy life despite winter. Here are a few things that have been going on in the last week or so:

My niece and I had an "aunt date." We did her hair, baked cookies, played Uno, and visited my grandma - her great-grandma! Here is a picture of the two of them together:

I made this amazing chocolate chip cheesecake cookie bars from the website: (Sooo many good recipes on that website!)

It's been snowy and wintery - nothing like "Nemo" of course. You Nemo survivors have bragging rights for awhile. Can I just say that Nemo is about the dumbest name ever for a winter storm? We ALL KNOW that Nemo is a cute clownfish who got separated from his father, who then went on an adventure with Dory (Ellen) to find him. A more appropriate name for this storm would be something like Hugo, or Bronco. Or maybe Sauron or Voldemorte. Or Tim.

Here is a picture of the Detroit temple, where I went yesterday with my sister and parents. Look at that sky - blue and cloudless. A very very rare site!

I watched the movie Penelope, thanks to my sister Katherine, who introduced me to it. Such a wonderful and charming movie. I would highly recommend it.

What have you been up to lately?

I'll add a possible storm name - Rasputin. But I like Tim, too. Great pictures, as always! I loved the movie, too. Charming is an apt description.
