Hamburger Cookies

I can’t take credit for this idea (see below) but I CAN say that I made these.  This post is especially for my dear friend, Tara, because I just know you will want to make these for your next get-together in Delaware! They were literally the hit of my housewarming party.  I actually didn’t even get one but from what I’ve heard, they not only looked great, but tasted great also.

I credit my success to the tutorial video below. You will learn everything you need to know to make these little yummies by going to http://family.go.com/video/hamburger-cookies-612093-v/

Here are my creations:
Don’t they look like real hamburgers? Enjoy!

4th of July Fun!

Wow! This 4th of July exceeded ALL of my expectations. It was a sparklin’ great time, definitely the most fun we’ve had yet! It started with a grand display of fireworks, along with a fantastic air show that the boys adored.  We were lucky enough to get a great spot right along the river where we enjoyed good company, food, and music.  Thanks to the friends’ that squeezed us in their spot!

Here are some pics of that afternoon/evening.

On July 4th, we had a neighborhood party. I’m quite sure this MUST become a tradition as it was tons of fun for the adults and kids. Thanks to my fabulous neighbor, Tracy, for hosting. We had rootbeer floats and smores…yum! Have I mentioned how much I LOVE our new neighborhood?
