sh sh sh-sugar!

the past week or so has been very busy with important things like:

sleepovers at grandmas


going to the park with friends
(which is still WAY too hot...come on fall!)

putting together our 72 hour kits that have been sitting on our spare table for, oh, a couple months. i guess hurricane season doesnt frighten me as much as it should

story time at the library

playing with cousin everett

organizing closets and deep cleaning

but i havent been good at taking pictures along the way. today we had some friends over to decorate sugar cookies and was able to snap a few shots of the cute kiddos.

by the way, these are katie smith's family recipe "cream cookies" and are divine! thanks katie!!! although, i still cant make them as good as she can. i guess you have to be part of the family to add that 'something special' to the recipe :)

we had ducks, circles, stars and fish to decorate
our cast of characters:

the picture above is the only one i really took of the cookies because the kids were just so sweet- awww! no seriously, its the only one i took of the decorated cookies, but they all pretty much looked just like this one... mountain high with sprinkles!


(tommy's little brother, can you tell?!)



grandma linda
thanks everybody for coming over and satisfying my sweet tooth with sugar cookies and adorable little people!

and just for fun, this is what ellie looked like when she woke up from her nap this afternoon. can you say "david bowie early 90's?"

she wasnt thrilled about having her pictures taken first thing
what a cute little monkey

All those little kids are so sweet! That looks like so much fun! When I have kids I'll have to look back at your blog to get so many fun ideas! All those little activities are so fun for them I'm sure!!

I don't know...those cookies look pretty dang good. But it might take a few more batches to get them to 'Ahlstrom' quality ! :)

So funny that you posted a pic of Ellie's bed-head. Just yesterday I took a pic of Dani's because it was absolutely the best 'due I've ever seen. I'll have to update my blog (ha ha) and post the pic for you to see.

No more updates about fun play-dates y'all are having. Even though the weather here is AWESOME, you're making me a little Florida home-sick!
