What are these called????

When we were young children, mom always made these for special occasions such as birthdays, Christmas, and church "times"(socials)...............

It is simply a white cake mix, baked in a lasagna size pan......
  then cooled and cut in squares, like so............
Now, for the fun part---simply, mix a pk of jello, set until slightly thickened, dip a chunk of cake in the jelly., then roll in coconut
 and place on a platter to set completely.......
 I'm sure there are many different names for these, but whatever you call them--I call them delicious!!

Icy Beauty

We had a lot of freezing rain this Friday and Saturday---very dangerous, but oh so pretty.  Here are a few snaps from our garden, after the storm.......

Our house is well hidden, in through the right............

Snowy Branches

I've been away from my blog for too long. 
My husband's brother passed away suddenly on January 18.  All of the family was together for the funeral, which made things a little more bearable, but there is going to be a big adjustment period for sure.

These pictures, that I took on January 17, remind me of him---he loved the outdoors so much.

Pretty Birds

I caught a few snaps of the birds at our feeders yesterday.

These were taken from our bedroom window.....

On my way out for a walk, I caught a glimpse of this visitor, just resting nonchalantly under a tree in our front yard.........
