Great Memorial Day Weekend

Thursday, June 2, 2011

What a blessed Memorial Day Weekend we had in Tennessee.  We had a great time with Philip's parents and with Uncle Pat and Aunt Melissa.

We spent the weekend relaxing and enjoying time together with family and friends.  Unfortunately, Jordan got sick but it didn't slow him down too much thankfully.
What a great dad--feeding his precious little girl :)

Too precious!?!

Aren't those beautiful eyes?!?

Enjoying the simple moments in life

As you can see, we had a great weekend.  Philip and I even had the opportunity to go out on a date.  We enjoyed some great crab dishes for dinner and then had fun shopping.

My recipe for this post is one we enjoyed this weekend at my in-laws: 

Chocolate Chip Cheeseball
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup Confectioners' sugar (powdered)
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup finely chopped pecans


1)  In a medium bowl, beat together cream cheese and butter until smooth.
      Mix in confectioners' sugar, brown sugar and vanilla.  Stir in
     chocolate chips.  Cover, and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
2)  Shape chilled cream cheese mixture into a ball.  Wrap with plastic, and
      chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
3)  Roll the cheese ball in finely chopped pecans before serving.
Serve with crackers.
It is super good and my mother-in-law says it is super easy to make.
