Sports

Okay, so this is really old, but I was looking through some pictures, since I don't have any new ones to post. This is at the WA DC visitor's center. I made some waffle cookies. They typically have chocolate frosting too, but I used white chocolate chips, and food coloring to make them more festive. I also shaped the waffle cookies into hearts.
Waffle Cookies: By Sandy Peterson
3 squares chocolate or 9 Tbsp (1/2 cup and 1 Tbsp) cocoa and 3 Tbsp butter or oil
2 cubes butter or margarine
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup nuts, optional
Melt butter and chocolate together. Beat eggs and sugar, then add in the chocolate and butter. Mix well. Add in flour, vanilla, salt, and nuts-if desired. Drop by teaspoonful onto hot waffle iron. Cook about 1 minute-they cook really fast. Remove waffle cookie with a fork and frost before they are totally cool. I used three Tbsp batter per cookie and arranged them so they would spread together in the shape of a heart when I closed the lid-2 on top next to each other and one on bottom in the middle of the top two.
Frosting: Mix chocolate, butter, milk and powdered sugar to make a creamy fairly thick frosting.
I used 3 Tbsp white choc chips, melted with 2 Tbsp butter. Mixed in 2 cups powdered sugar, and enough milk to make it creamy. I added red food coloring.


Hey everyone! I am looking for a softball or volleyball group to get together with and play ball-of course I live in Las Vegas, but I was wondering if anyone knows of any groups here, I'd love to find something to do with my spare time! Well, this was supposed to be the first paragraph, but then I added more things!

Also, for all of those reading this, please can you check on my "those we love" bloglist-if you are not there, or if you have a private blog, I NEED (yes, need-want-desire) your blogs, I am getting bored, and well, frankly the blogs I read don't get updated enough for me-which of course means 2-3-4 times a day! Cause I need some way to keep busy! Haha, okay, I hope I gave you all a laugh, anyway, you can send me an invite to my email or leave a comment with your blog address! Thanks ahead of time! trishrhinehartmk@yahoo.com

I took AJ to nursery today, even though he's not 18 months until the end of March, but I figure it's either I walk the halls, or I take him and hopefully get him used to it by the time he is 18 months! He did very well, but he also has been going through a separation anxiety phase, maybe cause his dad is gone, and now he thinks his mom is going to leave him?!?!? Who really knows, but he goes to a friends house while I volunteer at an on base helping agency 3 days a week. . . So, he is getting better, but lots of times he still cries when I leave.

Well, I guess I better get the dishes done! My kids are STILL sleeping-AJ went down after church around 3, and Savanna went down about 4. I should get them up, but I think they might just be catching up from going to bed late yesterday. It is now 730 and AJ is still sleeping, Savanna woke up at 7! She is still tired though, so I know she will go back down soon. I don't know if AJ will wake up or not, maybe he will just sleep through the night!
