At my house this week

12 inches of snow.  The first 8 were plenty for me.

My six year old becomes a cough drop addict.  Always the prince of drama when he is sick, the ability to self medicate is fascinating and probably a horrible foreshadowing of things to come.

I plan a rocking holiday party for 20. 
 Look out Mrs Tao's kindergarten class I'm talking to you.

I also help design a gigantic display for Imagination Fair.  
The  display case inside the front door of the elementary school.  
 I spell" Inventible" wrong for 600 kids to see,
 and the school secretary tracks me down at home to tell me.

I made this to give to friends and neighbors since the caramels didn't work out so well.  
Stop by and I'll give you some too.

Or don't and make it yourself

1 box Quaker Oat Squares
1.5 cups chow mein noodles ( I prefer the rice noodles)
1 cup cashews
1 cup oil
3 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp onion powder
1tsp garlic powder

Warm the oil, soy sauce and spices.
Pour over the cereal, noodles and nuts.
Bake at 250 for an hour
Stir every 20 minutes.

She decorated the bags with Happy Tape.
I posted about Happy Tape last Christmas, 
and it is still fun to play with.
