New Grand Girl & 2 Recipes

We have another new baby girl grand baby as of last week Aspen is her name. 7.10 lbs.

Then I try to count up and see how many grands this is lol. It's either 20 or 21 and 1 great grand.  EE GADS where did the time go?

The garden is all tilled and waiting.  We should be able to plant this Sat. we were hoping for last Sat.; but so much was going on that we didn't get to.  

A whole week of no freezing at night; great.

I have to bake 2 cakes today for a get together tomorrow night, so I best get to it. Better to get it done today in case I have to babysit Kaylee tomorrow.

Here is Kay making last weekend, as she said; snow angels lol. Rocks and dirt.
