Merry Christmas and Happy New Year (belated)! Welcome to birthday week!
It's Tuesday and it's still very COLD. Like, schools canceled, businesses are closing early, high of -8 degrees cold. The thermometer is saying that it's currently -13 degrees, and I'm going to trust it because there is no way I'm going out there for more than a few minutes to test it myself. You can throw boiling water up into the air and see it turn to steam instantly.
Yes, really. See a video here. Yes, I know that's from Great Falls, but if my facebook friends are being truthful, then I know a lot of stay at home people who have tried it and it works!
Anyway, the move went great! We are almost all settled. Steve painted the baby's room and our room and thankfully, we didn't have to paint anything else! Most of the stuff on the walls have been hung and it looks like regular humans live there. Not just humans with boxes. WHOO!
For Christmas we got a freezer, so I've been working on filling it up with goodies. What goes in first? Chicken and 1, 2, 3 Lasagna. I also made huge batches of Steve's favorite Cranberry Fluff salad. Next week I'm hosting a Wildtree Freezer meal party, so I'll have a review of that coming up.
Here are a few photos that I would definitely be showing you if we were on a running date:

|We quickly discovered that they never moved the furniture in the master bedroom to paint!|
Thankfully, Steve is very good at painting!
|Our first meal in the new house - soup and grilled cheese with sparkling grape juice!|

2-3 cups fresh cranberries, chopped into fine bits
1 can whole cranberry sauce
1 regular size tub of Cool Whip (not the giganto size)
1 bag of mini marshmallows
Directions: Mix all the ingredients until pink and fluffy. Store in a large bowl in the fridge or serve as a side dish for a holiday meal. Enjoy!
