I tried my hand at homemade marshmallows! They weren’t all that hard to make, even without a candy thermometer, but they were messy! This is a project for a neat cook, someone who cleans as they go and uses metal utensils instead of their fingers. I am a messy cook, and it sure made a big mess!
I don’t think these are exactly good for you, they are pure sugar after all (with some gelatin), but they sure do taste good!
And they look good! Do NOT ask why we have Christmas tree marshmallows…I suppose it was because I let the kids choose shapes.
Larger than life!
I’m happy to share the recipe, and the marshmallows, just ask!

We had a fun birthday party for Kenan today. Invited over 4 of his friends from school and a neighbor girl to play with Shana. It was the easiest birthday party we have ever done: we rented a bouncy tent and just let them play. It was a risk…they might get wild and crazy with no structure…but apparently there was enough room for the wildness because we had no injuries or meltdowns or any other problems. Nate also made animal balloons for them, everyone loves balloons!
Everyone loves cake too! What a cutie!
The cake was dinosaurs playing soccer.
Happy Birthday to the most adorable seven year old I know! We love you Kenan!

Finally, CBC Calgary’s OTA (over-the-air) signal has gone digital! For the first time in my life I was able to see the puck during a hockey game. Unfortunately Luongo saw more of the puck than he wanted.
We now have three crystal-clear channels coming in through our rabbit ears. There’s still nothing good on, but at least it’s in HD!
