I know it’s the end of February and I might have jumped the gun on taking down my snowmen decorations, but I couldn’t resist.  Even if it’s still icy outside these little guys made my day.

The end of February also means the end of the Crock Pot Challenge!  I finished my 10th recipe and it was great.  Super tasty and super easy to make.
