All in all, we had a nice but short family reunion. I wish my sisters lived closer so we could get together more often. I love them very much. Thanks for coming down. I'm glad we had the weekend and that I had Martin Luther King Day off of work so I could visit all day.

Jake and I took some of our friend, Geoff and Jamie and their cute daughter, Lucy with us hiking. We went to the Peralta Trail but went on a side trail called the Lost Dutchman. Unfortunately, we never found any gold but had a great time anyway. I stole these picks from Jamie's blog, thank you. We brought our camera but the memory card was left out. Ooops!

So as you can tell, I haven't been that good at posting lately...sorry....I need to stop doing Facebook. I just can't keep up. Anyway....here's a few highlights of our Christmas and New Year's Holiday.

Last year, the mom of one of my students made me some YUMMY Caramel Popcorn. This is not your normal run of the mill caramel popcorn. It's soft and delicious. I just have to share the recipe. It make a lot too.
1 Stick butter
1 C. Brown Sugar
1 C. Mini Marshmallows
Melt Butter in a saucepan, then add brown sugar and marshmallows. Mix until a goopy substance. Make a big bowl of popcorn. Before adding the marshmallow mixture add 1/2 C. white chocolate chips and 1/2 C. butterscotch chips, and nuts to the bowl of popcorn , then pour the hot mixture over the top and stir.
I usually use microwave popcorn and this mixture will cover 3 bags worth of popcorn.
(My addition to her recipe: I made two "goopy" mixtures, because I didn't think it was enough over the 3 bags of popcorn. So either do the same thing or maybe lessen your popcorn to 2 bags instead of 3 and only do 1 "goopy" mixture.)
