8 oz shredded Mozzarella cheese
1 lb shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 to 1 cup chopped green onion (to taste)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp sour cream (optional)
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
1 stick unsalted butter (1/2 cup, 4 ounces), softened to the point of being slightly melted
1 to 2 loaves of French or Italian bread (I used Ciabatta), depending on the size of the loaves
1 In a large bowl, mix together the cheeses and the green onion. Stir in the mayonnaise and sour cream. In a separate small bowl blend the butter and garlic until smooth. Add the butter mixture to the cheese mixture.
2 Preheat broiler. Slice loaf of bread in half horizontally, lay crust side down. Spread cheese mixture over the bread. Place under the broiler until nicely browned, about 3 to 5 minutes.
3 Remove from broiler and let sit for 5 minutes until cool enough to handle. Slice the bread with a bread knife. Serve.
Makes 30 to 40 slices.

Yes!! It finally happened...it SNOWED!!!:) This is every child's dream(and some adults, too..smile)here in the south. For about 10 minutes last night it snowed big, wet snowflakes. We played outside as long as we could. The boys tasted the snow, but loved throwing snowballs at Jay and I. It very quickly accumulated on surfaces, but nothing to show for it this a.m.. Just too warm:( This video is not the best, but we wanted to catch the boy's excitement!!! If it is choppy, I'm sorry!

" The mouse that ran up the clock......." I just thought the little girl as the mouse and Ms. Storms as the clock was just darling. ;)

Just a quick video of the boys racing down our hill in their Tonka trucks. Listen carefully to the boy noises as they race. :) Notice the large satellite dish, this is our internet satellite, the only way to get high speed internet in the country. It is a beautiful day in the low 60's here. No sledding, but this is the next best thing!!:) Bryce's hives are better and he's all about playing today. The doctor put him on steriods and a strong antihistamine. Diagnosis: hives from something.
On a side note: Bryce got angry this morning and told me he was "angrish". I said don't you mean "angry", he very determined said "That is Spanish for angry, my friend at school told me that". Such a funny kid!!

I was closely monitoring the boys last night as they were using the Fiskar scissors and paper. I stepped out to throw in a load of laundry and when I came back in, Bryce was holding a handful of his HAIR!!!!! Aghhhhh!! I would post a picture, but he did a really good job and you really can't see where he cut.... phew!! Thank goodness... this is the first time either of the boys have cut their hair. It doesn't surprise me that it was Bryce first. So that was last night..... this morning, I woke Bryce about 6:30 to get ready for school and suddenly realize that an eye is half swollen shut, his face has red, raised and warm splotches, and his ears have red specks all over them. I called my brother( the Doc.) and said " Benedryl and the E.R. or just watch and see?". He said, benedryl and see the doctor this a.m.. After a dose of benedryl, the redness and speckles are gone, but his face is still puffy and splotchy. Why?... I have not the faintest, I hope our doctor can figure out why at 10:30 this a.m. He is fussy and irritable, so I know it's not over yet.
I am beginning to get gray quick(honestly)!! Lane has been a fairly easy, predictable kiddo, Bryce on the other hand.... where do I begin?! He has add the spice to our lives and I am every so thankful for that!:0 He can make me laugh when I should be ringing his neck and the next minute lay a BIG kiss on your cheek!!! Kids are so different. I should know that as teacher, but when they are your own, you see a different perspective! Parenthood is an unpredictable, yet awesome experience. That's why my parents say to me now, raising small children is for when your young and able. Each day brings the *precious moments* that can never be repeated and then some you want to forget, quick!! Have a great weekend everyone:)
