After preschool the twins and I made some pudding. They love helping and making it and eating it. Supper easy. They said it was good! So that fun for them!! Here is the recipe just in case anyone wanted to make it with there kids (or by themselves)

Real Homemade Chocolate Pudding
(Almost as fast as the boxed kind)
Serves 4

1 egg yolk
2 cups milk
1/4 cup flour or cornstarch
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 tablespoons mini-chocolate chips

In a small bowl, using a wire whisk, mix the egg yolk and milk
together well.

In your saucepan, mix together the dry ingredients until well blended.
Slowly stir in milk/egg mixture. Go easy?you don't want it lumpy (use
your wire whisk). Heat over low heat and continue to stir until
mixture thickens.

Pour into pudding cups. Sprinkle the top with the mini-chocolate chips
(they will melt?this is a good thing. Swirl before you inhale.)

Chill or serve warm.

Wheel of time

Jason loves the wheel of time books and another came out last night at midnight. Jason went over to BYU for the party, book signing and fun. Jason worked very late last night then went over after work which made it for a long day and night but I think he thought it was worth it!! Here is Jason and the picture at like one in the morning.

Jason's Henry Mountains trip

Last weekend Darik and I went on a fun little camping trip with our cousins Jeff and Ryan and their Dad, Daniel. We went down to the Henry Mountains in Southern Utah. This trip is annual event for our cousins, but D and I had never been there before. We had a great time! These mountains are in the most remote area I have ever been and it was pretty cool to be in the mddle of nowhere - literally. We spent our time hanging around the camp fire trying to stay warm (the nightly temps were below freezing) at night and hiking/4-wheeling during the day. This was a beautiful area that just makes me appreciate the awesomeness of this state anymore. We saw hundreds of deer on the mountain; including the biggest bucks I have ever seen (not the ones in the picture), and a small herd of bison. My uncle Daniel and I explored this sweet slot canyon and came across a cave-in and were able to make our way through it to the other side.
