Happy Easter

Just a quick walk from school, Mischief volunteered our house for the kindergarten egg hunt.  Gulp.  We cut, clipped and cleaned….prepping the front yard for little scavengers.  What took three adults thirty minutes to hide, took this group less than five to find.

To Do List

If I quit my job I would…
paint, learn new mediums, daydream with my children, go on picnics, have a spotless home, plant flowers, take my girls to museums, exercise, and take better care of myself.

So, I quit my job.  Now I...
do laundry, pick up legos, referee little girl tantrums, do laundry, carpool, deconstruct forts, do laundry, and have big girl tantrums of my own.  I can feel my brain shrinking and my rear end expanding.

Determined to reorganize my to do list.  So, I'm retiring from the blog for a while…until then, join me on Instagram here.  I promise…no photos of laundry.

Okay, so we finally had a picnic…
scratch one from the to do list!

Can't wait…The Monuments Men is opening this weekend.

 Monumental?  Me actually going to an adult movie…Annie, The Lorax, and a menagerie of Disney characters play on a constant loop at our house.


Well…it was more Ocean's Eleven than Saving Private Ryan.  I think I'll try renting the Rape of Europa, more information here

Clean and Bright

"Better keep yourself clean and bright;
you are the window through which
you must see the world"

George Bernard Shaw

Taking some time to clean up the clutter and dust of 2013…
preparation for a clean and bright 2014

Peace, love, and cookies

Williamsburg, Virginia circa 1979

Every year, we make gingerbread cookies for our friends and neighbors…and every year, I try to recreate the gingerbread I first tasted at Colonial Williamsburg as a child.  Not a cake, not a cookie…something in-between.  I continued to visit into adulthood while living in Virginia…never missing a trip to the bakery.

This year, success…I found the recipe!  Direct from the Raleigh Tavern, find the recipe here

A modern spin to an old recipe…a cookie cutter I found that looked a bit like my girls….short bob, little dress and all.  Peace, love, and cookies….with a little Mischief and Mayhem this season.

A lot of mountain dew and a little George Bailey made wrapping and tagging a bit easier.

Mischief helping make deliveries.

Back home and ready for Santa Claus.

Sorry Santa…I ate your cookies.
