Life is a bit different around here... Wee Ninja Girl and Sillypants have a new brother to play with. I'll call him Little Irish because his name is Irish and he looks every bit of it. He's mellow and adorable and we love him to pieces! He's four months old today, but he's enormous and eats all the time. All. The. Time.
But, despite the crazy that encompasses my life, I miss writing, even if it's about the boring stuff I do.
I've decided to jump back to it and see if I can hang on for more than a couple months this time!
So, since Hallowe'en has come and gone and it's obviously the holiday season, I've decided to repost the Figgy Pudding recipe. It's fabulous stuff and not surprising at all that the folks in the sone WON'T GO until they get some.
