Secret recipe for Ginger Snaps revealed...

Made with love by Haven

and Violet 

Ginger Snaps

Note the cookie snitch...

Tea time
Gran and two of my flower girls got together today and hand crafted a batch of cookies.
The recipe is one I have been trying to get from a Mom of one of my students at school for years. This Christmas she shared not only her cookies but also the recipe. They are so delicious!
Bad news...I had to sign a confidentiality document. No passing "the recipe" along.

Busy on the porch...

I am not sure where to start. Life here on the porch has changed. I have never lived in the same town as anyone in my immediate family. I really thought it would never happen. Family and  neighbor. Will wonders never stop? My Traverse City daughter  and family  have bought a house two blocks from me! A nine year old and a five year old can run up on my porch any time they want. This is a dream come true for me.

Now for the busy. Holidays with all the family in this old house. Moving, packing, watching kids, unpacking, cleaning, making suppers and pies and driving kids to school. It has been a whirlwind of activity. I have connected with a younger crowd at school. The last time I saw many of the parents at "pick up" they were the kids being picked up!

So I hope I get back to blogging regularly and my camera. I need to stop smiling all the time...
