A rather random post of not much of anything.
– – – – – – – – -Is Spring actually here?
We knew it would happen, knew we’d get that one last cold snap.
But wasn’t that the time before the time before?
Compared to March, April has been one continuous cold snap.
Oh well, it will warm up, one of these days.

On one of the nicer evenings we had a fire and roasted marshmallows.
Girls loved it. Mr. D did too but he continually lit his marshies on fire.

Let me introduce you to the best kind of s’more. ^^
A Chocolate fudge stripped cookie.
Peanut butter.
And a perfect marshmallow.
Why is it so good?
It’s the perfect amount of chocolate, (just a little) you don’t have to bite into that awful wedge of hard chocolate.
The cookies are much better then graham crackers.
The peanut butter just adds to it all and makes it even better.
It’s just the best. 🙂
Try it.

This is just how it is too.
When the Bleeding Heart flower starts to bloom, Spring is here.
It was starting just beautifully this year and then a hard frost got it.
I had been covering it when it was cold enough but wouldn’t you know, the weekend we leave, frost got it.

We have quite the flower garden.
Between the “Bloody Bush” and “Creeper Jenny” stalking around, you’d think we’d have a murder scene.
The girls can not remember flower names and their mom isn’t much better.

In news other then Spring and the weather… we’re trying not to let our 2 year old turn into an i-pod junkie at such a young age. I’m afraid at this rate he’ll be wearing ear buds to Kindergarten. He’s got all the moves down pat to open it up and find his beloved Curious George. He also has it down pat how to sneak it away without mom seeing him. It’s buried in his blanket here.
Where were these things when I was a kid?
Oh yeah, I was better off without them.

This one only causes trouble when she’s out of books.
And that would be about every other day.
Not sure what’s gonna happen this summer.
She is tired of our little local library. Says she’s read everything there already.
Time to move on to bigger and better.

And we couldn’t have a post without food could we?
I mean, the very thing that sustains us must have it’s most important place in a post.
My SIL Berneice told me she makes these for her kids so I tried them too.
Don’t know where she found it, probably Pinterest.

Buy a tubes of cinnamon rolls by the cresant rolls and canned biscuits.
May as well get 2. You’ll need them.
Stick them in the waffle iron a few minutes.
Frost and eat.
As easy as that!
I love these on Sunday Mornings when I forgot to get anything else around and they don’t want cereal.
I made 3 at a time the other Sunday. It really doesn’t take long at all, probably less time then a waffle takes.

And there may or may not have been a clown at school one week to celebrate the teachers birthday!

And this is something we’re trying to work on here…
A never ending work in progress…

  1. First of all, I love your music!  Second, your little guy trying to hide out with the “Hi-pod” is so cute!!  And the freckle faced reader! Third, those cinnamon roll waffles are going to take a test run here some near day!! And Fourth, but not least…I love your comment about the “murder scene” in your flower garden! Who names them, anyway?


  2. What is with little boys and ‘hi-pods’?  Let’s just say some of the adults are referring to it as a ‘hi-pod’ now beings that is what the 3 yr old calls it.  Yeah, and trying to get them to not become too much of a junkie with it…  Ours goes to work with Dad so it’s not a problem except when he’s home.


  3. your pictures and collage layouts are so cool. wondering how and where you do that?!!! you do such a great job.and i’ll be firing up the ole’ waffle iron for those cinnamon roll waffles for sure. most things with frosting work for me. :Dhappy tuesday friend!


  4. Hmm. May I hang out on here all day just to listen to the music?? 🙂 Brook got 4-5 new books for her birthday. Maybe Madison wants to read a few of them. They are older books like Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm, PollyAnna, Black Beauty, and cant remember the others..


  5. I still want a hi-pod myself. 🙂  I’m feeling really annoyed with xanga.  Fewer than half the pictures are showing up and the refresh button isn’t helping.  I’ll have to come back b/c I really want to see the clown. 😀


  6. @smilesbymiles – I should send you his hi-pod, he doesn’t need it. And NO before you ask, our kids do not all have one, he just claims the one and only one we do have. And don’t bother with the clown picture… you probably don’t even know her. 🙂 


  7. HI there – I’m Tessy   Just trying to get to know a few more people here in xanga land.  I made a new start (new xanga blog) this past year with a new chapter in my life and kind of started over on the subs list.  I thought a good place to start would be with some of the FFE groupie  that I really don’t know that well – but still read there comments all the time on the blogs I do read.  The cinnamon roll waffles are a great idea.    I will have to make a mental note. Also love your scrapping pages.  I am a big digi-scrapper though I haven’t done a page in quite awhile.  Need to change that because National Scrapbook Day is this Saturday. 


  8. enjoyed your post…just now found it! we’ve been too busy, not taking time to smell the flowers…last eve.we sat outside for several minutes after working in the flower beds, and it was so relaxing! so enjoy your days, they are so fleeting…..love you lots!!


Would love to hear what you are thinking...
