Grandma's Peanut Butter Candy Recipe

We made this recipe that my Grandma Bellomy used to make for my brother and I when we were kids. This stuff is amazing when it is still warm (careful because it can really burn you), but it gets pretty hard when it cools. A 12 seconds in the microwave can help with that.

Mix the following and bring to a boil for 3 minutes:
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 c. Karo syrup
  • 1 pinch salt
Stir in the following:
  • 1 c. Peanut Butter
  • 5 c. Rice Krispies
Spread on cookie sheet
Let cool

Christmas Photo

We got this one on the first try. The secret was to let Jackson play with an ornament of the tree... we took it away again after the picture. :(

Express Mail

I found out that the USPS will actually deliver Express Mail on
Sundays... if you pay them enough.

That's news to me!

Queso & Jesus

Today, Jackson said two new words... "queso," and "Jesus." He loves chips and queso, and we can only hope that Jesus will someday be the treasure of his heart.
