Easter Fun

Not my fav of family pics but it is what we got...
after Stake Conference the boys were done and wanted to go play...
not too many happy faces..aww well.

Got these of the boys' bow ties made by momma!  
They were very handsome!!

This is what we woke up to on Easter morning...
jelly beans and eggs all over....
What a fun tradition that I remember doing as a little girl and loving!!

The Easter bunny had some pretty eggs this year.

 Bunnycakes for a nummy breakfast!
 Searching and searching for their baskets...where oh where did that sneaky rabbit hide them this year?

 One to go...
 There it is!!
check out the loot!

 Gotta say I don't decorate cakes...
but this was yummy and the boys both loved it.

Hope your Easter was one to remember 
and that we all remember what we are celebrating.

Mmm Mmm yummies!

 Chocolate Coconut Oatmeal
...need I say more?!!
This was sooo yummy!!  
I got the recipe from 
I can't wait to try out some of the other kinds!  
They all look delicious!!
I love LOVE this blog!  

Another blog I visit frequently got to is 
That is where I got the idea for these
mini bars

They are sooo easy and sooo yummy!!

Homemade Tortillas!!
How yummy do these look!!

You will have a hard time eating store bought tortillas after  having these...

consider yourself WARNED!

First you mix up
4 cups flour
1 Tbsp Salt
1 cup shortening
1 cup milk
1/2 cup water

yep thats it!!

Then take a small amount and roll it out as thin as you can get it without tearing it...the more flour on the counter the better.

Then I put them on my griddle.  I am sure a frying pan would work I just could get two done at once with this.  

Do you see all those bubbles?  That is how you know when it is ready to flip...

This happens fairly quick so watch them closely...

You only want a few light brown spots.  
Leave on the other side for about 1-2 minutes and then place them in an oven preheated to warm until the others are done.  

Add your favorite toppings 

and ENJOY!!

So much fun Baby Shower!!

My good friend Sky and I threw a baby shower for a friend yesterday and I thought I would share all the fun things we did!  It turned out cute and was so much fun to get ready for!!
How cute are these zig zag streamers!!  They turned out to be super fun!!
I got the idea from Oh Happy Day!!  Go check it out!  These could be used for just about any party!
These taffy sticks were a big hit!  Could be a great addition to any party.  The colors were bright and fun as well...and who doesn't like a piece of yummy taffy?!

 Sky made this awesome pennant banner!  I love how cute that owl is!  
It made the front of the table so stinkin' cute!
 For our yummy dessert we had cupcakes which were really good and 
strawberry and turtle cheesecake bites. mmm...
 These may look good enough to eat but....the cupcakes are made out of burp rags and onesies...and the lolly pops are made out of spoons and bibs!  These were a blast to put together and I think they turned out so adorable!!
These were the hit of the show!  They are adorable boxes filled with bubble bath, body wash, and lotion!  The boxes were fun to make!  They were double drink carriers from my favorite place!! SONIC!!  I go there frequently for happy hour and I picked up a couple of these.  I should own stock in this company for how much money I spend there at happy hour!!  Then we covered them in some cutsie paper and put some ribbon on top!  They were easy to make and turned out awesome!!  
Two lucky ladies won these as prizes!

Thanks Sky for always being my wing woman in these fun projects!!  
It is always more fun to do it with you!!
