My Sister's birthday

My sister's cake
Last month my sister turned ten. She invited some friends over and had a good time and . . . . . . . . I made her a delicious cake!!!!!  Now this cake is something that I came up with all by myself. It has probably been created before but I created it simply out of my head. My sister doesn't like cake therefore this cake is rather uncakelike. Sorry I couldn't get a picture before it was cut but everyone loved it so much that by the time I got my camera it was almost gone! 
Little Cake things
Here's the Recipe  

12 cups of Rice Crisp Cereal
2 bags of regular Marshmallows OR 8 cups of miniature marshmallows
6 tablespoons butter or margarine
Ice Cream (whatever flavor you want I used Chocolate Fudge Brownie)
Cool Whip
Sprinkles, Little Candies, and things to decorate it with

1. In a really large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. 

2. Add rice krispies cereal. Stir until well coated.

3. Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into a big pan coated with cooking spray. Cool and cut the pan of rice krispies in half.

4. Spread the frozen ice cream on a half of the Rice Krispies and put the other half on top.

5. Spread Cool Whip on top and decorate. 

6. Freeze until ready to eat.  

  • Tips:
Candles do not stick in this cake very well. Trust Me!

Make sure you keep this frozen if you don't the ice cream melts and gets the rice krispies soggy

You can also make these like ice cream bars or as you see in the picture on the left you can use cookie cutters and cut the rice krispies  into little circle shapes

I wouldn't recommend using gummies to decorate as they freeze in the freezer and become rather like little rocks!

Me and my family loved this cake although if I made It again I would probably do some things differently. I can't wait to make this again with different flavored ice cream.  

Trinity Hills and other things

First of all here is the link to the Trinity Hills website you can find more information about Trinity Hills there. Our sixty six chicks are doing very well. I can't believe how big they have gotten! They used to fit in the palm of your hand and now there as big as your head! I'll try to upload some pictures of them. Also we woke up one morning to find a bunch of cows wandering around our house. They eventually moved away though. Once again I'll try to upload pictures of them too.

More School Stuff

        First of all I am now currently going to public school. It isn't unbearable but it is a big change.  I've been going to public school for a week some girls there are very nice. I am learning things I wouldn't have learned being home schooled but there are also things being home schooled that I won't learn going to school. I'm not saying that I miss every thing about being home schooled ( Bye, Bye Latin) but I do miss being with my family. I do not think I will learn as much at public school but some people think that I  doing to much school being home schooled.  Maybe all the school work would have been worth it. It probably would have helped me one day. So, basically what I'm trying to say is that maybe this is what's best maybe it isn't but there's only one way to find out. I haven't given up on homeschooling and I hope to be home schooled again very soon.

School and Stuff

 Hello! I would love it if you comment on my blogs new look below. Anyway I started school a couple weeks ago, this is the first time I've used M.O.D.G. (Mother of Divine Grace) for school I used to use Seton but we decided to try something new! It is different. M.O.D.G. makes you learn Latin which has so far been rather nightmarish. On a different note we have been settling in nicely and have met some really awesome families. I'm reading some old Agatha Christie books my Grandma had. My little sister's birthdays coming up! I'm trying to learn to Crochet (not going well) and just waiting to see what tomorrow brings!

                    Four months ago my family moved to Rogersville, MO from Chicago. It was a big change but we love it here! The change from a busy city life to a rural life was surprisingly easy! I think it would be much harder to go from a rural life to a city life. Here you wake up each morning to see and hear birds singing, cows mooing, hawks soaring, and the occasional turkey playing on the playground! The nice thing is that we are not far from town but still it seems like you’re in the middle of nowhere! It is called Trinity Hills Farm it’s on 114 acres and has 7 springs, 2 ponds, and is right next to the river.  There are lots of trails and beautiful sunset views. Just going down the road out here is like a roller coaster because the roads are on the foothills of Ozark Mountains. We miss Chicago but Missouri is totally beautiful,  and…….. HEY GUYS LOOK IT’S A DEER!!!!!!!!!!

that "due to a little accident"

                      In the last post, what was described as little more than a "little accident" shall now be described as it fully deserves. It all started about a week ago, when someone said the sink was clogged. Unfortunately, that person was ignored. So when I and the little party of my younger sisters came down to do tie-dye, we set all the tie-dyed things on the floor so that the dye would set (except me and Teresa who put our things far up on shelves). Fully expecting the next morning we would come down to beautifully tie-dyed socks and shirts, let me just say that we had no such luck! A certain person at the beginning of this story should have been listened to! We came down to a partly flooded laundry room and for those tie-dyed creations except mine and Teresa's pretty much looked like runny uncolorful things the moral of the story being when some one says a sink is clogged listen to them!  :)


  For Christmas, my aunt and uncle gave us a tie-dye kit. We had loads of fun (cleanup is not included in this statement)! Catherine made a blue crinkled t-shirt and a pair of socks for Mom. Gianna made a pair of green socks. Even though she used the whole bottle of dye, due to a "little accident", they are a very light shade. Teresa and I, made a tie-dye pillowcase and a pair of vibrant red socks. If your wondering why my socks were so much much vibrant than Gianna's that will be answered in the next blog post.

That Horrible Flu

            For the last week or so my family has been hit with waves of a horrible flu. As Gianna had it first I am pretty sure she was the one who brought it into our house, despite her claims that she had nothing to do with  it. It (the flu) had a habit of making you feel fine and then making you "toss your cookies" at the most unwanted time. Teresa got it next then Catherine, Me, Mom, and John.

Christmas Times 2

          Well this is going to be pretty much the same as the "Christmas Times" post so I'll just say that It's Christmas time once again! We opened presents, ate food and went to midnight mass (Sure Catherine fell asleep 5 minutes into it but it's the thought that counts)! On Christmas, we were invited to both our grandparents houses. We only made it to one however because of that horrible flu. At my father's parents house my sisters and I received dresses and some other clothes. I'm not sure what else people got except I know my little brother Thomas got a giant box of toys - He loves it! :) Notice the differences between this post and "Christmas Times" ?

For school I have recently finished a book report on the Swiss Family Robinson and am starting one on the Winged Watchmen. For Art I am doing things with graphs and shading as well as making color wheels and drawing figures. I also am trying to decide what Saint to chose for Confirmation. If you have a suggestion comment below.
