Posting three days in a row, this is a world record!
Today was a typical Sunday.
Chris let me take my weekly nap after church
while he fed the kids quesadillas for lunch.
When I awoke,
the kids had made a "Leprechaun Trap".

notice it says "Welcome Leprechauns" inside and there is a trail of green marshmallows for them to eat on their way in.

I ate left-overs from the salad I made for Gracies baptism yesterday.

Gracie was so cute. Her cousins adore her!

We're so proud of Grace, and we love her kindness and sweet example.


Then I chased the carb overload with a sugar overload and made cookies.

Now, with kids in bed, I'm off to make stuff for the shop.

Good night!

Oh what it would be like to take a nap AFTER church. We get out at 5:30 - just not gonna happen this year. Or if it does, I'd probably just sleep through the night. Hey, you have to see the cute new store down on Main St. that has the same tiles that you are displaying here (well, at least the same as the middle one) - maybe you've seen it already. AND can I just say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE the satorialist!!!! I discovered that one a while ago and LOVE to go people watch!!!!!!! Looking forward to seeing you soon.

The Leprechaun Trap is so clever! Your kids must take after you. And thanks for sharing your recipes, I'm always looking for a new recipe to try.

i'm so glad you posted the pasta recipe. i tried to recreate it today for our family's Easter dinner and egg hunt. Well, it was decent, but didn't come close to as good as yours was. I love your blogs this week! I'll have to try some antique/second hand stores around here.
