***I originally wrote most of this post in Mid-March, but was unable to get Y!C!’s recipe and then I forgot about it until yesterday.  So, I am going to post it anyway.  Note that our activities occurred in early to Mid-March.***

We’ve been spending most of our spare time over at the Money Pit, trying to get it finished so that we can move in.  We are gradually taking our stuff over there so we can unpack while we are waiting for contractor mistakes to be fixed.

I didn’t have time today to make another treat, because I did an elf photo shoot.  They are absolutely the worst kind of subject.  Most of my conversation and instruction went like this:  “Hey!  Stop that and leave him alone.”  “Please look at the camera.”  “Just because your head is pointed at the camera does not mean your eyes can look some place else.”  “Don’t put your arms around his neck.”  “Move your hat out of his face.”  “Stop teasing him”  “Hey!  No fighting.”…
