5 AM turn the radio up.......

so that title has absolutely nothing to do with this post, but I can't get that song out of my head today!
And actually it is a pretty accurate way to describe our household in the mornings because the majority of us are early risers....I am usually in the gym between 4 and 5 am with the music playing!
Anyways, after a long weekend at work I am glad to be home for a few days.

"what's the deal, yo?"

Okay, no more Pink lyrics!

We started off the morning with a little playtime

Did you know that Farmer John married the Virgin Mary?  It's true, Amelia told me, I even saw them kiss!

Nash's favorite place to be is hanging on my leg.....he is definitely a momma's boy

And if I detach from him it makes him a little upset:(

But then we kiss and snuggle and it's all better:)

So when I came home from work last night and told Amelia I'd be home with her today, her question was "what are we gonna make tomorrow?"
So i found a really good new recipe to try,
Amelia was the baker and I was her assistant.
She started by sniffing the cloves.

She added a few ingredients and started up the mixer.

Her favorite part of cooking is cracking the eggs which she is really good at, she never get any shell in the mixture

Nash kept entertained with some graham crackers....

She added some apples to the mix

And the most important part.....taste testing the batter

Yep, it was satisfactory!

And the finished product which turned out better than I thought they were going to be....

They are called maple-glazed apple cookies and the recipe is on the sidebar.  "Delicious" according to my taste tester Wyatt Hoy:)

Amelia even did dishes and then did a cookie delivery, what a gal!

Her partner in crime spent his morning playing with his truck and sitting in the sunshine.......what a life

I am feeling really lucky because I was able to snag one of Meg Duerksen's pillows from her Etsy shop today.....can't wait to put this in my living room!


Here's to a wonderful week!

"so raise your glass if you are wrong, in all the right ways, all my underdogs, we will never be never be, anything but loud and nitty gritty dirty little freaks, won't you come on and come on and raise your glass, just come on and come on and raise your glass, for me!" ~~ Pink  ( my all time favorite singer, she's never sang a song I haven't loved!)

  1. Lucky you! I was going to visit her shop when she opened at noon but didn't make it there until 2...and of course, all the good stuff was gone. Cute pillow. I have one of her's too. Have fun with the kiddos these next couple of days.
