Cooking with Daddy

Category: Uncategorized – Mommy Rimes – 8:48 pm

How to make Sugar Cookies with Daddy.

First, you add the butter.


That’s a lot of butter.

Then, you mix the rest of the ingredients to make cookie dough.


The best way to do this is with a mixer.

Then you check to make sure everything tastes good.


And one more time, just to make sure.



Join us tomorrow night when we roll these out and cook them up (if there’s any batter left that is)

Oh Christmas Tree part 2

Category: Uncategorized – Mommy Rimes – 2:55 pm

When we got our tree home, it needed the typical treatment. Cut off some limbs, shake the heck out of it, and stand it up straight in the base.

Then, we got down to business.

And here is our pretty little tree taking over our living room. Don’t you just love sparkley, shiny things?

Oh Christmas Tree!

Category: Uncategorized – Mommy Rimes – 10:46 am

We went hunting for the perfect Christmas tree this weekend. We decided that it had to be as tall as Daddy and smaller across than Mommy’s arms. (We’re real technical people over here)

We took Uncle Paul, Aunt Sara and Tess Doggie with us, since they needed a tree too.


It was a beautiful day, as far as winter days go. It wasn’t too cold, it wasn’t snowing, and it wasn’t muddy. So we hunted around for about a half hour looking for THE tree.


We finally found it. A cute little Frasier Fur.


Join us next time when we decorate our lovely tree!

I can’t believe it! I actually managed to go an entire month without failing once!

It’s astonishing. It’s stupendous! It’s miraculous!

It’s exhausting.

I’m tired. I think I’ll lie down and take a little nap now.

But don’t worry, I will probably keep up with the posts more often than in the past, so you should stop by now and then still, even though November is officially over.

Or… House of Hair.

Yup, that’s Miss R.


Rockin’ out.


Oh yeah. She’s really groovin’.

She likes to dance while Daddy plays Guitar Hero.  Which is good, because he likes to play.

I thought about writing a poignant post today. About how thankful I am for my family, friends, health, home, and basic comforts of being an American.

But I just feel altogether too sappy writing all of that. So instead, I’m going to leave you with a few images of the yummy things I have made to honor the occasion of having a houseful of people from 2 states, 4 counties, and 6 cities.

I am thankful for chocolate.


Specifically, Ghirardelli 60% bittersweet cocoa.

Let’s take a closer look.



I am also thankful for mashed potatoes. And Pioneer Woman.

Yup, I made those too. No pictures though. You’ll have to see hers.

I also made some of this. I am thankful for sugar. Without which, none of this would be possible.


MMMMM. Yummy. These are Christmas gifts, but since they are already open, it’s ok to show you.

There will be much more food, for which I am very thankful. Plus, the company that will help eat all this food will be wonderful.

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Eating.

This week we will be doing a little Thanksgiving with a little Christmas for those relatives we don’t get to see on the actual Christmas holiday. So I’ve been working like a busy little elf to get things all finished by Thursday.

I made a ______ for ________. It’s very pretty.

And this other one I made is made from _____ with a little bit of ______ and a ______ tucked inside. It’s for _____.

I made another ______. I loved the pattern so much I made another in a ______ colorway. This one is for my ______.

And since I don’t just make things from ____ and _____, but I also make _______. This one will be for _______ and _______.

Sorry, no pictures until after Thanksgiving!

More Kitchen Adventures

Category: Uncategorized – Mommy Rimes – 7:44 am

According to the calendar, we have 4 days until Thanksgiving. That’s 96 hours, and if you subtract sleeping time, and at-work time that leaves us with 48 usable hours to make our kitchen presentable before we have guests over. ugh.

This weekend we are feverishly finishing the trim, painting the fireplace, hanging curtains, photos and new lamps.

On top of all this, we still need to do the cleaning, shopping, cooking, and other pre-holiday activities.

Did I mention that we don’t actually have curtains or lamps yet?  yeah, so we still need to go get them.  Go ahead and add “hardware shopping” to that long list too.

But it’s going to look fantastic when it’s all done and no one will no the hardships we faced to get our house ready.  Unless we tell them.  Which we probably will.

So, Daddy and I were chatting the other night, and we think it’s time for a move. Baby Rimes is not really a baby anymore, and the title of this website is a bit misleading.

I think perhaps we should move the whole blog to a new page seeing as how I spend just as much time writing about our child as I do about all my crafting, cooking, and other exploits. But how to accomplish this without sending all 3 of my readers elsewhere because they can’t find my site any more?

So be on the lookout!  We might just up and move to a new bat time at a new bat channel!
