Scenes of the Day

Hello and Happy Easter! We are celebrating as a family big plans, except being together and taking it easy for a little while...not to mention we are also enjoying our Spring Break holiday this week.

We made some really delicious Easter cookies using a simple recipe from Southern Living. It's a 5-ingredient recipe that makes a delicious shortbread/sugar dough.  I've always loved rolled out cookies and imagine all kinds of possibilities when it comes to decorating with piped frosting, sprinkles and such.  Sometimes the process can be a little intimidating, but with a little patience it can be a really fun experience.  We plan on making more with this easy dough.
Next up is a picture from this morning:
The girls had a fun morning tearing into their Easter baskets. These baskets are a little on the small side, but they still seem to hold lots of goodies.  Their loot included a little bit of candy along with a cute t-shirt, Littlest Pet Shop toys, a paintable craft, fun erasers and a golden egg which included a little bit of spending money.
