Spring cleaning, here we come!

Well, I guess since the sun has been shining the past 4 days straight, it must mean spring is getting closer. Today is filled with a bunch of cleaning, sorting through stuff, and getting rid of things we dont need.
I am going to attempt to get Gabe and Nolan in on this cleaning extravaganza as best I can. We are going to go through clothes, deep clean the floors, deep clean bathrooms and dust the whole house. If Nolan sleeps well during his nap, I might make James attempt the garage which is in great need of a cleaning if not a deep cleaning!!!!
So even though we have nothing on our agenda today, we are going to be soooo busy.
Last night James and I were able to go over to some friends house and enjoy company of 4 other couples, it was one of the best dinner parties I have been too. It was a candlelit dinner with some wonderful food. Everything was decorated beautifully and the conversation was really nice. We played the newly wed game and we were all laughing so hard at some of the answers. We also played name that tune to love songs. What a great time, I could keep going on and on at how much fun it was but I dont think I could explain it well enough.
Here is the recipe of the day followed by pictures for the rice pudding in the post with the rice pudding recipe down below(make sure you take a look at how easy it is!!):

These cookies are so good! They are very soft but have a nice crisp outside. Best right out of the oven while they are still warm.

Grandmas Gingersnaps

3/4 cup margarine
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup molasses
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup white sugar for decoration

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a medium bowl, cream together the margarine and 1 cup white sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and molasses until well blended. Combine the flour, ginger, cinnamon, baking soda and salt; stir into the molasses mixture to form a dough. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and roll the balls in the remaining sugar. Place cookies 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Have a wonderful day! And wish us luck in our cleaning adventures :)
