Mommy and Me Monday | The 112th ed. | Cooking in aprons


It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids.  Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information.

We got a surprise package in the mail this weekend. I love surprise mail. Not bills (ugh, so many), and not junk. Real mail, hand addressed to us!

Our package came from our blog grandma, Grammy Lura. I don’t even know how long we’ve been blog family, but it’s been over three years!

The girls had little individually wrapped gifts that were made just for them.

Never would we have realized what they were. They were custom made aprons with their names on them. And, the cutest little bows and they are PERFECT. They have been worn for every meal and meal preparation help since they arrived Saturday!

(Somebody kept saying “no pictures for me!” Such a stinker).

“Okay girls, let’s make the cookies!” (Grammy sent those, too. So smart. Aprons went directly from gift wrap to on the body to cooking at the table!)

Okay, are there extra hands in the picture? It’s weirding me out. But, they were nice enough to stop to take picture. Sorry #2, I think you were mid-blink.

Ummm….#2, you got caught!

At least she’s using the spoon to do her cookies.

Such concentration.

The cookies were a hit and gave us a great afternoon activity. And, of course, activities are a lot more fun when you get to eat the results.

Only a couple made it to Easter.

Happy Easter weekend to you!

He is Risen!

**There really is only one requirement here, a picture of you and your baby or babies; your children, your “baby” (ie significant other) or even your fur babies.  If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link.  It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.**

I try to make sure and visit all of you and leave some comment love.  Please spread the love!  And, I never mind the comments, either:)
