National Brownie Day - December 8th

Today is National Brownie Day! Next to cookies, brownies might just be the next best dessert. Ian and Alli helped Theresa make a batch. When it was National Cookie Day we made sure to read "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie". Now that it's Brownie Day, they made sure to find "If You Give a Mouse a Brownie".

I love the edges. The kids like the soft center. Thanks Theresa for making it with them today!

National Cotton Candy Day - December 7th

Today is National Cotton Candy Day! I've been hanging on to this cereal since the summer just for today. Cotton Candy, aka Fairy Floss and Candy Floss, was invented by a dentist back in 1897.

I love cotton candy. When I heard there was a new flavor of Captain Crunch coming out, it was definitely going to get some. The stores nearby didn't have any in stock (that shouldn't be a surprise at this point) so I had Walmart ship me a box.

A Frosted Flakes taste test

It's time for another big taste test! This time I searched for every single flavor of Frosted Flakes cereal that I could find. In the end, I found 7 unique flavors!

There's regular Frosted Flakes, Chocolate Frosted Flakes, Pumpkin Spice Frosted Flakes, Honey Nut Frosted Flakes, Banana Creme Frosted Flakes, Cinnamon Frosted Flakes, and finally Frosted Flakes with Marshmallows.

National Cookie Day - December 4th

Today is the day to celebrate my favorite dessert. It's National Cookie Day!

And the best of all of them are freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. Mmm. Straight out of the oven.

2019 Decorating the Christmas Tree

Our Christmas Tree has been up for a few weeks, but now that it's after Thanksgiving it's officially time to post it. Theresa is in charge of making sure the inside of the house looks good, while I'm in charge of the outside. We'll get to that post later (and as soon as all this rain finally goes away and I can get on the roof safely).

Mystery Oreos Revisited - The mystery has been solved

On December 2nd, Oreo announced that the mystery has been revealed.
We tried these back in early October and made our guesses.

The flavor was announced to be Churro, which I guess matches the clues they were giving, but doesn't match the flavor I was tasting. Many others have said the same thing. I think I liked Jacob's guess as Cinnamon Teddy Grahams to be the best. It has a graham cracker taste to me. It's not bad, but it's not churro to me.

A Wet Thanksgiving Day at Disneyland - 2019/11/28

Happy Thanksgiving Day!
It's Thursday and normally we'd be at home celebrating Thanksgiving with the family. And while some of the family is here, there's a few more that are still in transit.
Our cousin Avery is here and she's never been to Disneyland before, so everyone was excited to take her for her first visit. There were two options, either go on Thanksgiving Day or go on Sunday. Thursday would definitely be less busy and Sunday would be more crowded. As is got closer to the actual date, the forecast called for rain. Eh... that'll make it even less busy, though not ideal. We're still going to go for it.
