Christmas was quiet in Washington, just us here so we invited the missionaries over for dinner. It was nice to enjoy them in our home. On the 27th we headed for snow country. We enjoyed the 28th through 1st with all of the kids at a cabin in Island Park. No more quiet! We are a loud bunch most of the time. We had a blast in the snow and it just kept coming down! We played games, and ate, and rode snowmobiles, and ate, soaked our bones in the hot tub on the back patio, and ate, went tubing and warmed by the cozy fire, and drank hot chocolate at the end of the day! There is nothing quite like having time with such a great family. Thanks all of you!

Listen up I'm gonna fill you in. Where were you hangin out Friday night? Well, we were rockin out at a swingin costume party. Check out my new shades! We had a blast! By the by, I have a tip. We used dry ice in our punch; no spikin' it if ya get me. Anyway, if you use warm water to drop the dry ice in, it bubbles like crazy and spreads creepy steam all over the table. We served the punch (root beer) on the side and let the caldrins just keep creepin everybody out. I got some instructions with the dry ice that said you can put dish detergent in the water and some food coloring. This will cause colored bubbles and when they break they have the colored steam in them!!! Let me know if you try it. Have a great Halloween Dudes!!!

So, I was on the phone with my two Washington girls the other day and we were planning a get together, but we couldn't wait. We were saying how we wanted to see Julie and Julia but our husbands, at least mine, didn't relish the thought of sitting through another chick flick with me. ( We saw Love Happens but he actually lived through it and somewhat enjoyed it) So we decided if we left right now we could meet and make the show. Dumb I know. So I packed my toothbrush and jammies, and jumped in the car at about 2:30 for a girls night out 2 and a half hours down the road. I had a few delays along the way. So.... Later that day... at about 9:00, when I call to tell the girls I am just pulling in to town, I see red flashing lights behind me...nevermind why. So I say, um, I better go. Call ya later. 65 in a 60, whoever heard of that?
Anyway, I got there and we enjoyed Julie and Julia. We were the only ones in the theater, with stale popcorn but we laughed our heads off and it was some good girl time I tell you. So, long story short, Julia Child totally inspired me to cook something wonderful. I look around the place and decided to pick my rhubarb. Which is good because my wonderful husband usually tries to do away with my rhubarb plant about this time of year. If the Roundup doesn't get it the fire will. I think he likes rhubarb at least he says he does but he is always out to get my plant. Don't even ask how the last "burn day" went. I have told some of you about the harrowing experience. I had smoke inhilation and our bushes, right near the house are burned to a crisp. That is all I am going to say. Except that it made me consider if we have enough fire insurance to replace the house. That said. Here is my pie. It's not French, I know but it is goooooood ala mode' so there you have it. Bon Appe'tit
