We had a very busy weekend here. Saturday morning my husband and son woke up early to see the Eclipse. Then my son had his first playdate in Colorado! I am so happy that he is making friends and adjusting quickly. Saturday afternoon we went to a snow/ice sculpture event that ended in a parade. It is amazing what people can do with snow and ice! And it is always fun to see a parade, especially when Santa is in it! Sunday we went up into the mountains and went snowshoeing. It was the perfect weather to be playing outside in the snow. I hope these warmer temps stick around for awhile!
I saw these Cinnamon Blondies over at From Cupcakes to Caviar a few months ago. They looked so gooey and delicious! My 6 year old is a huge cinnamon fan, so I had to make them for him. I over baked mine by a minute or two, but they were still amazing. This was my first experience with Cinnamon Chips, and I think I am going to have to go pick up another bag!
