Keri, you are so right, I hate when I don't talk to my loved ones daily. I'm so sorry for your loss.


It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood! Hope you are all doing well. Have a good one!

Good Morning Forest Friends!

I'm home! I haven't read the thread yet, to catch up. Will do that now and might even do a bit of commenting along the way.

Hugs for all!!!

They also said something about a frappachinno with "dark caramel".
I didn't like the cookie crumb one - I tried it last year. But I tried the Caramel one yesterday (if I remember correctly, it was called caramel ribbon)... it sure is SWEET. Way sweet... too sweet... but yummy, too.

I was good - I only had 'Bux twice on my trip.

A soft lemon cookie sandwiched with strawberry frosting.
Category: Cookies
Serves: 1.5 dozen
Ingredients
COOKIES:
1 box lemon cake mix
˝ cup shortening
2 eggs
FROSTING:
3 T. butter, softened
3 T. strawberry puree *(see notes)
1 cup powdered sugar

FOR COOKIES:

FOR FROSTING:
Combine all ingredients, and mix until smooth and soft.
Frost the bottom side of one cooled cookie, and sandwich it with a second cookie of a similar size.

To make strawberry puree, dice several berries (about 5-6) and place in a saucepan with 1-2 tsp. water. Bring to a boil, and use a fork or potato masher to mash berries. Continue cooking until puree is reduced by about half. Let puree cool completely before using.

The themes from that point on were suggested by the swappers--like winter wonderland, paradise in the forest, forest friends, etc. She is an awesome hostess! Yes, I said that as I will see her in person in a few days and need to be nice!
Wow! You WERE nice to me! Thank you, Barb! I ♥ you!

And Barb is exactly right about how the forest started. A lot of people were encouraging me to host and I had no idea what kind of swap to have. DJ (cherthosestamps) - who doesn't swap anymore - PM'd me and said I needed to have the forest theme (based on my SCS name) - so that's what I did. See........ I've not really come up with any of the themes on my own. LOL! I really need my friends!

Wecome Nancy! I'm so glad you're joining us! I guess you've figured out we are chatty here in the forest. I hope you'll chat along with us as little or as much as you'd like.

I have been gone on a trip, hence my delay in welcoming you to the thread/swap. The good news about that is that you get a PRIZE since you joined while I was gone!

Yikes! Pansy, you can have the mice AND the rattlesnakes. I don't want either one!

Yes, there is a story about my name. Most of the forest friends are familiar with the story - so if you have heard it before, just take this opportunity to snooze a bit while I re-tell my story.

See.... I am a bit Christmas crazy. We (no, I) put up a lot of Christmas trees in my house - the most I've ever had in one year is 43! (No, that's not a typo!) Sort of started with that same DD that Pansy mentioned. At the time - she was in the 2nd grade (I think) and went to the governor's mansion on a field trip. Came home and said, "Mom, the governor only has 1 more Christmas tree than we have." (At the time we had 4 - one in the living room and a small one in each of our kiddo's bedrooms).

I promptly (in my weird sense-of-humor way) said, "Well we'll fix that next year". So the next year we added 2 Christmas trees to our home's decor. After that, when I'd find CHEAP Christmas trees - at yard sales or on clearance after Christmas - I just HAD to buy them. LOL! And Christmas ornaments were collected from lots of places. So over the years it grew and grew.

We lovingly refer to our Christmas-decorated home as the Forest.

Fast forward, to January 2008. The forest was still in place when I signed up for SCS. I sat at my computer trying to think of a name to use for SCS and the Christmas lights were twinkling around me from the trees in that room. It came to me............ Forest Ranger!

The funny thing is, I'm really not even much of an outdoors type of person. LOL! My forest is inside my home for about 6-8 weeks of the year. (It usually starts going up the 2nd week of November and comes down mid-January).

However, we moved to a much smaller house nearly 2 years ago - so now we only have approximately 25 Christmas trees.

I know you are enjoying being part of these milestones in your GD's life!

Never had one in the backyard....but we see them sometimes in other places. So far I have photos of timber rattlesnake (captive specimen-at a reptile photo workshop), a Masaguana (one of the smaller species) taken at an area wetlands/refuge but wild specimen....and a prairie rattlesnake--took about 200 images of him/her one summer night,,,,was most cooperative.....My DH goes bonkers when I do snake shots as he can't stand them.....and I'm not stupid...I wear boots, long pants and stay out of striking range...using my long lenses usually.....
EEK!!!

My Grandfather was bit by a copperhead and got deathly ill. Was hospitalized for a few days, but recovered fully.

Since then (Barb, it was quite a few years before my current age of 17) I have not been a fan of any kind of snake!

Aren't husbands great!?!?!? Mine tends to those sorts of things when needed, too. I am so glad!

But--we wish we had more time and the day was much longer than it was............ Everyone made a great card kit and we each made 5 wonderful cards! A few giggles and laughs also surrounded the table. And--Paola was with us via the phone. She called Sunday night and talked to Carol, Darlene, LJ and myself--then called back yesterday morning to surprise Jeanette and Terry with her voice!

We had a Wisconsin lunch of grilled Italian sausage and bratwurst--along with potato salad and coleslaw. LJ then headed home and the 5 of us went to Polka Dots--a LSS 12 miles away. I think we spent close to an hour shopping! Then back home and saying our goodbye's along with a promise to do it again! Thank You Carol, Darlene, Terry, Laura Jean and Jeanette for a wonderful couple of days--the smile on my face will be stay for a long time..................

The two pictures are taken on my deck.
It was so much FUN, Barb! Thank you for hosting........... and allowing me to RAZZ you in your own home!

Forest Friends, it only took me 7 minutes to get to my first RAZZ of the day.... and they all looked at their watches and declared "7 Minutes" and giggled. I'm good!!!

I'm sorry, Nancy, it's because I haven't been home nor on the computer. I hope you didn't fret too much! We are glad you're here!

And starting Friday (will run May 3 - 12) from 3-5 PM, they have half off ANY frappachino beverage!! Is at participating stores, I know the one near me will have that! YEAH!!!

I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL day!!
Hi Janet... no I didn't buy any stamps - but I did make a BIG purchase! Sure hope I like it!!!
