Tents and treats

Tent city

The children made a BIG fort in Charlotte's room last week...

and we left it up

for a couple of days.

So Charlotte had to sleep in Court's room with him and that meant Kevin and I got to sleep by ourselves...

all night long.  No visitors.

Charlotte has the biggest room in our house.  It is very pink.  It was like that when we moved in and we didn't change a thing...because she loved it so much. 

We also saw very special friends this weekend and that called for a special dessert....

White Chocolate Cheesecake

2 1/2 cups chocolate crumbs
1/2 cup melted butter
3 pkgs cream cheese
3/4 cup sugar
3 eggs
6 squares melted white chocolate
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp lemon juice

step 1 - put on your prettiest apron and don't worry about your Saturday morning hair or baggy eyes

step 2 - combine the crumbs and the melted butter and press on bottom of 9 in. springform pan
step 3 - beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth, add eggs, one at a time until blended
