Two Cups with a touch of Caramel

Ben's "Two Cups with a touch of Caramel"

Well here we are again.  Christmas is almost with us.

As part of our Advent activities we set a challenge for the children. They each had to make a Caramel Milkshake and present it to their father.  Dad was the judge.  (He didn't know who made which one)  Ben my 13 yr old made one he named "Two Cups with a touch of Caramel" and  Madeleine my 11 year old called hers "Caramel Boom Boom"  The children loved the challenge and went all out to win.  Of course , I took the photos.( As I do.)  Ben is sitting here with and keeps saying "Don't forget to say I won"  So there you have it. Ben won by .1!!  Very close competition. We love doing our Advent activities!!

  4. Hi, Kelly. Thanks for visiting and commenting on my and my grandbaby's gingerbread house (yes, I've written down the "Patience is a `bird shoe' --she clearly says it as 2 words, LOL, and many of her other wonderful stories down). Our son is a professionally trained chef, and he and his brother both were in the kitchen with me from very early on, so I LOVED this post. Both children did a great job! I think we should follow each other; I'll be following you. So glad you commented so I could find your blog. Blessings at Christmas.

  5. Thanks so much for stopping by and for your nice comment. I hope you have a wonderful holiday.
