If we have the right house we met this dog mid walk a while back and now we see Copper and her parents all the time. Viv really wanted to make Copper some dog treats but I keep forgetting to get the ingredients so Oreos it is (SORRY BUDDY)! Enjoy! And a shout out to all of our neighborhood dog friends!

The neighbors we know best are of the 4 legged variety. We meet you when you walk past our house, or we walk past yours, or we meet mid walk; sometimes we meet when my dog chases after yours ;0 (we are working on that). We probably know more dog names than people names. There are so many dogs around here that the UPS driver carries dog treats in her pocket.

Our rhubarb is finally ready to use. The snails have been making quite the meals from my rhubarb leaves but the stalks have survived. We found this recipe for rhubarb muffins, chosen because it uses greek yogurt and we have some we need to use up.

We really love our home and new neighborhood but the big boys were really missing their friends from the old hood. There were several boys there that they had grown up with, it was hard for them to leave. It doesn't help that the scale in this house is tipped to introverts. (Our youngest fireball being the exception). That's why meeting this family has been so great especially for my big boys. Nothing like an extrovert to get the party started. Now the boys have met several friends in the neighborhood. So thanks for having fun kiddos over there!

Every one is talking about Swig sugar cookies, we have tried them they are good but we prefer PopShop in Riverton. We decided to try our hand and the new sugar cookie craze. We chose this recipe because the pics looked like the real deal. We didn't quite have enough butter for the cookies so we used a little coconut oil. For the frosting we wanted to copy PopShop, their cookies are all different pop flavors. The only pop we had was Ginger Ale so we halved the milk in the frosting, added 1/8 cup ginger ale and 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger and a splash of almond extract. We also substituted coconut oil for butter and greek yogurt for sour cream.
Cash was my helper today so I got a few pics of his cute new junior high haircut.
