Book and Dessert

We have checked out this very cute bilingual book from the library several times. The book is written mostly in English but very cleverly inserts a Spanish vocabulary word or two on each page. Not to ruin the surprise ending but the animals attempt to make a cake which ends up on the floor. To salvage their dessert, they turn the cake into pineapple upsidedown cake.
The book includes a recipe for pineapple upsidedown cake at the end of the story so the boys and I decided to make it for our dessert.

Texas Snow Storm

My kiddos are always so excited for snow since we rarely see it here in Texas. Schools were actually closed for 5 days in the last two weeks. The first storm only brought us ice and very cold temperatures. Luckily the second storm delivered some snowball-ready snow.
