the re-cap

Hoping everyone had a fun Easter weekend! We stayed busy making cookies and treats to share.

I bought some new Easter cookie cutters this year.

Which started out looking so cute...

...but then end up looking like this. Does Wilton have a test kitchen, and did this happen to them? Is it the dough, the pan ... me? Probably.

Lotus had a blast with the sprinkles.

And she made some artwork to give to our family members.

I was brave enough this year to let her have a go at the eggs.

And she did a great job.

We spent the weekend visiting family and had a fun drive up north to goof around with my parents, uncle Chris and Lisa.

This was one of my fave toys when I was little ... the Sesame Street clubhouse. I love seeing the old toys and books my parents break out of the closet when we visit.

And over the course of the weekend, Lo participated in several egg hunts.

She is now an egg hunt professional.

And our house is completely filled with chocolate eggs and rabbits. If you need a chocolate fix, come on over and help us out. Please.


  1. Coming right over.

    Lotus has the cutest outfits ever. It's pretty much why I need a girl this time. The outfits.

    Glad you had a good time with the family and that Lotus has realized her egg hunting potential.

  2. Those cookies look so yummy! Lo is a doll!

  3. looks like you had a fabulous easter! i love the way you dress lotus. she always has the coolest outfits!

  5. try chilling the cut out cookies on the sheet for 10-15 minutes before you bake them. they won't spread so much....{an old martha hint}
