Snow White Takes to Baking : A Couch Adventure
Last week we were continuing the Christmas festivities and I forgot to post. School started up today and I had to drag myself out of bed this morning. I am not much of a morning person so getting to sleep in over Christmas break was lovely. All the fun wore me out and I am wishing we had an extra week of recovery.
This year I was lax in getting pictures of the children but I did manage to get one photo at my In laws.
Snow White Dress
I finally completed the snow white dress that my daughter has been asking for for over a year. I gave it to her for Christmas.
I told her to make a funny pose and she chose to do a split. She loves to show off her flexibility to us old people. She watches a lot of ballet videos so she practices all sorts of crazy poses that I could only dream of doing.

The holiday’s may be over but the food is not. We still have a freezer full of bakes. Anyone else? Here I made cinnamon bread. We kept one loaf and I gave the rest away.
Oatmeal raisin cookies are a favorite in our house. Recipe from Betty Crocker.
The best Peanut Butter cookies I have ever had. From The Bush Family Cookbook: Favorite Recipes and Stories.
Peppermint Bark. This was made using pantry items, white chocolate chips, semi-chocolate chips and crushed candy canes.
These are just a few of the bakes still in our freezer. I think I got the baking bug out of my system. For now anyway.
I declare my lady completed. I added some more shading.
My next in-progress sketch is my daughter. I am using a school picture for reference. I am finding it a challenge to sketch someone I know. Even after a lot of tweaks it never seems quite right. This will probably end up as a practice sketch. I am hoping to get some better quality paper for final drafts.
I am joining the T day ladies for Tea, hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. I got a lot of tea for Christmas and I am excited to share it all with you. My tea today is Organic Caramel Vanilla Candy Rooibos Tea. It has delicious chunks of caramel in the tea, although you can’t see any in this photo. Rooibos tea is made from the African red bush. It is considered an herbal tea and has no caffeine. It is very delicious and I would consider this a dessert tea.
Happy Tea Day,
