Ahren's broken down car

Ahren's car has been broken down for quite a few months. 
A huge snow storm is coming and we had to get his car off the side of the road into our driveway.  Our township will fine you if your car is blocking the way of a snowplow.
 Zachary is home from college, so we had to fit 4 cars into our driveway.
I wish I got a picture of how bad the storm was.  Our cars were entirely covered to the top.
Ahren car has since been fixed and is parked on the street again.

Lembas Bread

Ahren and his friend, Dave were watching 'The Hobbit'.  In one scene the dwarves are eating Lembas bread made by the elves.  This must have made them hungry because they decided they wanted to try to make the very same bread.
So they looked up the recipe on the internet (you can find anything on the internet - even make believe elven bread) and went baking away.

I must say it tasted good.  
They said if they baked it again they'd add more honey because it wasn't sweet enough.

In case you curiosity has gotten the best of you the recipe can be found HERE.

Chubby Bunny

We played a really fun game at our New Years Eve party.
We were all laughing so hard that our stomachs hurt and tears were rolling down our faces.

In the game, each participant usually places a marshmallow into their mouth and says "chubby bunny".
 If they are able to state the whole phrase, usually in a comprehensible manner that the other participants wholly concur to, they pass that round.
Each successful player then adds an additional marshmallow to the one already in his or her mouth and repeats the phrase. A player who fails to complete the phrase is eliminated from the game. 
The process continues until only one player remains. 
After the penultimate player loses the game, the winning player might have to place one more marshmallow into his or her mouth and may have to state the phrase once more. 
The winner of the game is the player who fits the most marshmallows into his or her mouth
