Longest. Day. Ever.

We had a rain day today due to a tropical storm that never arrived......

Arts & crafts, watched TV, baked a cake, played balloon bam (see previous post), made chocolate fridge cake, played Candy Land, played Memory, had a dance party, watched TV, blew bubbles in the rain, played upstairs, did laundry, cleaned out a closet, watched TV, more playing, ran around the house, bucket o' beads, sister time......


Our meteorologists SUCK! There was no flood, no downpour, no thunderstorm. We did have some sprinkles of rain here and there. My favorite part of today is the media is predicting we will have the flood and downpour tomorrow.

Below is a picture of the girls gluing random things down on paper. An egg platter makes for an excellent arts & crafts tray. I put the glue in the middle and then put beads, feathers, etc around. You can spread the glue with craft sticks.

Below is a picture and recipe of the Chocolate Fridge Cake which I tweaked from the Mommy & Me Cookbook

Ingredients: 1 cup graham crackers, 2/3 cup milk chocolate, 2/3 cup semisweet chocolate, 1/2 cup light corn syrup, 1 stick of butter, 1/2 cup raisins, 1/4 cup chopped nuts (we used almonds)

Line a square pan with plastic wrap. Break up the graham crackers or use graham cracker crumbs. Melt the butter, chocolate, and syrup in a bowl. Add the graham crackers, raisins, nuts and mix all the ingredients together. Put the mixture into the square pan and spread evenly. Put pan in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Use the plastic wrap to pull out the cake from the pan and then cut into squares. YUM.
