Guess what he delivered…the perfect family who wants to buy our home!
Yep, with so many homes for sale and lots of snow and ice outside,
we are moving for Christmas.
Instead of filling stockings and wrapping presents…
we are strapping up boxes and filling 3 of these 24 footers and moving 5 hours across our great state.
No matter which way we turn after 25 years in our beloved home we are finding it hard to say good-bye to neighbors, friends, and so many memories here. What propels us forward is knowing we will be close to family and in a warmer place.
We are leaving fruit trees; 2 sour cherry, 1 plum and 3 apple. I make lots of yummy things with all they produce. With lots of love, here’s a treat for you.
Best Apple Crisp
It’s easy to make, and this time of year I like to toss in 1/2 cup of fresh cranberries.
Pare, core and slice tart apples. Combine water, melted butter, salt, cinnamon and lemon juice. Pour over apples and mix. Pour into a 9 X 13″ baking dish.
Cream butter and sugar; add flour and mix well. Crush cereal, (not too finely) and combine with creamed mixture. Press mixture over apples. Bake uncovered at 375 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes.
Serve with ice cream or table cream if desired, and an extra squeeze of love!

I’m hoping to check in often through this glorious month. Please know I’m trying to finish up with school and fly this coop. I plan to resume the Top 5 Hits and throw a New Year’s Party, for all of you, from warmer Southwestern Idaho.
