The Growing Tails of Ernie McDoodle: New Responsibility- Thankful Day 15

Ernie McDoodle is the sweetest and kindest doodle I know! So when Ernie came to me and asked....
 "Mom, Can I keep him?" 
How could I ever say no?!
So instead I said,"As long as you are responsible for your new kitten, and you take really good care of him, then you may keep him"
I PROMISE Mom!
Everyone say hello to Ernie's new kitten, Merlin!
Merlin loves his Papa Ernie so very much!
And Ernie loves him right back
Ernie takes his new responsibilities very seriously
And is always there for baby Merlin
No matter what
Merlin is fitting right in to the Always Amelia Clan
I am thankful for my sweet double doodle boy taking on such a big responsibility
But most of all, I am thankful that I am able to say that I have 2 dogs and 2 cats, and my dog has cat. So I can't even be a single crazy cat lady :)
see Merlin isn't mine, He's Ernie's! 
Always,

Amelia

Thankful for Sharing Recipes - Day 14

One thing you can always count on here at Yesteryear Acres is something delicious is cooking in the kitchen!!!!! Our entire family really knows how to cook and we make some amazing dishes. Even though our older daughter is still at Quantico, we are thankful we can share our recipes and cook together long distance.  Tonight I made one of her recipes, "Orange Glazed Roasted Fennel Risotto"  I was a little nervous because her version is so heavenly! 
Fennel roasting in the oven
So far so good! 
Fresh squeezed orange juice, caramelized butter and red pepper flakes 
Risotto!
Finishing touches
Ready to serve 
Bon Appetit!
It was scrumptious!!!!!!
Thanks for recipe sharing!

Thankful Day 12-Snow Delicious

Last night Yesteryear Acres was perfectly blanketed in snow. Ernie McDoodle awoke to his favorite thing... A winter wonderland!
Hello Snow!
Look Mom! It's EVERYWHERE!
I just LOVE the taste of fresh snow!
First you take a small little lick to make sure it's a good spot
Then you have to plop...
And slurp as many snowflakes as you can as you roll from side to side
I have found that it's the best way to eat as much snow as you possibly can
I really love it when my Mom makes me fresh snowballs too
They are just SNOW delicious!
SLURP!
Hehehe see what I did there?
Snow makes me happy!
I am SNOW thankful for Snow!

Always,

Amelia
