More Balentimes

We had some leftover yummies from the things we baked for teachers, so indulgence has been a bit of an issue. I consume large quantities of the cookie dough *while* I am baking the cookies, so I am usually nauseous at the thought of eating those, but I can put away the dipped pretzels all day long! The Rice Krispie Treats were a hit with Emma's class :)

We went to our favorite little (did I say, little?) Japanese restaurant, Hibachi Ichiban. We met Chris there for an early dinner because the girls had piano at 6:00 p.m. Well, obviously a "little" Japanese is just the thing to have for Valentine's Day because we were there for almost an hour before our dinner was ready. Apparently the thing to do is call the food in ahead of time (duh) and then come, pick it up, and eat at home. That would explain why there were only three other people in the whole joint and 274 little plastic containers lined up on the counter full of noodles & meat. Oh well, we took ours to go and did what our family is famously good at doing.... eating in the car.

The sun was beaming straight through the windows and while it was a bit annoying, it was beautiful on the "golden boy's" head.


Time to brag.....See the four beauties from my four beauties? Gotta give the Big Daddy credit, because he even picked out the pitcher vase! What style :)

How sweet, beautiful flowers!

Great idea to give treats to the teachers too.

I love the vase. Are there any extra rice kripsy treats?
