rachfrakes Had to grab ONE thing and opted to forgo the cart. He grabbed her hand and said, "mama just don't worry, I'll hold Elsie's hand. I'll a-tect her. Elsie, elsie, come on elsie. No, no, sweet, don't touch that. Come on my heart." And then I (and thirty other assorted grannies and store clerks) just died on the spot. She doesn't know just how lucky she is to have a brother who loves her so. 4d

rachfrakes Made my grandmothers german molasses cookies today, just because. Her recipes link her to her homeland and I don't think I've ever visited her as a child or an adult, without being sent home with dozens of these. And since her recipes live in her head, I'm grateful my mother spent time with her mother in law watching like a hawk to learn her secrets, and in turn, taught me. A pinch of nutmeg, not too much clove; these are so much more than cookies. 1w
  •   mjanek So sweet️ and on top of that I love your nails 1w
  •   ewm1958 I want one!!!! 1w
  •   jamihirst Yum! Man, you really got it together! Homemade cookies and nails perfect? My only really successes today are some laundry done and bribing kids successfully to drink more water 1w
  •   rachfrakes @jamihirst girrrrl, all I did was cookies and laundry, so, no. Ha! 1w
  •   mommynotes I loooooove molasses cookies. Didn't know it was a German thing! 1w
  •   bethanyjackman Sounds delicious! 1w

rachfrakes Two little faces watching the snowfall 2w
  •   heidi_hopp Snow?!? It was 75 in dallas yesterday then dropped to 40's today and probably won't get up much higher until spring and I'm depressed. I'd die if it were snowing before thanksgiving! 2w
  •   rachfrakes @heidi_hopp we've had beautiful 70 degrees up until now, but there's a nasty attic blast sweeping down from Canada. It's going to be a cold two weeks! 2w
  •   olive_thethings We must have some of that too because it's been just freezing the last couple of days! Olivia doesn't understand why we can't go anywhere today. Winter is so different from summer and fall. 2w
  •   rachfrakes @olive_thethings Yep. All through the Midwest too. -2* this morning!! 😬 2w

  •   olive_thethings I love how sweet he is with her! Olivia's over here body slamming Axel. 3w
  •   lifeasallison Aw so sweet. Where is this rug from? I'm hoping to find a nice west elm morrocan rug knockoff. This one looks really similar or maybe it is the west elm one 1w
  •   rachfrakes @lifeasallison rugsusa.com. It is SO soft and comfortable and they have 50-80% off deals all the time w/free ship. They have a lot of west elm look a likes. 1w
  •   lifeasallison We need to buy rugs to cover an entire house of hardwood floors, so our budget on each rug isn't very high. My hubby won't buy any rug he can't feel first, but I want one like yours and haven't found a good one at an actual store that I like. Do u remember what yours was called by chance to give me an idea of one that does feel nice in person? 1w
  •   lifeasallison And thank you! 1w
  •   rachfrakes @lifeasallison yeah it was a risk! But we paid $130 (we also have to cover hardwood everywhere) so it was a good deal and we have been thrilled with the way it feels. My daughter just rolls around on it like a dog, haha. It was called Moroccan shag i think, here is the link (looks like they have a deal right now so it is out of stock but it comes back all the time) http://m.rugsusa.com/rugsusa/rugs/rugs-usa-moroccan-shag-mrc2/natural/200HJMRC2A-507.html hope that helps! 1w
  •   lifeasallison Thank you so much! 1w
