A Special Cake

For those of you who know me, you know I love the Walton's!

This year, I made Olivia Walton's Applesauce Raisin Cake with Bourbon Frosting (the 'Recipe').

It came out really good!!!

I'll post the recipe in the recipe section!

I almost forgot how to post a blog, it has been that long! 

Life gets in the way, but I'm not complaining...

Thanksgiving was good, I ran my annual race but it was really freezing, really!!

I had a lot of gratitude, thankfulness, but just never got the time to post.  Working 60 hour weeks, is not conducive to blogging. 

I will slow down now for the next three weeks, and then, in January, I will be in over drive again!   But I am thankful for the reprieve of Advent and slowing down and enjoying the "Reason for the Season"

I went on a Journey to Bethlehem this past week.  A local Christian church follows Mary and Joseph on their way to Bethlehem.  We walk through the woods, meet up with other families on route to their respective towns for the census, come head to head with evil Roman soldiers, are offered food (curds) by some farmers, meet shepherds and angels who herald that the Messiah has been born and FINALLY see baby Jesus in a beautiful manger filled with animals.  This is a yearly tradition for me now.

I went to Center Stage in Shelton for a Christmas Play/Sing a long.  That got me into the Spirit! 

This week, I have a family Christmas Party and my annual Cookie swap, so I'll be busy with those things. 

My daughter is home from college for one month and everything else is ok! 

I hope my readers are well also and I will try to blog more often as the holidays approach.
