Down on the Farm

We were invited for supper (and a sleep over for CJ) at a friend's farm
a few days ago. CJ enjoyed playing with friends, finding the cats,
seeing the new baby calves, and horse back riding.
What a lucky girl!!

Inspired to by Saucy I tried
making some cupcakes .... horse cupcakes
like in the Hello Cupcake cookbook... we struggled with finding some
white marshmallow peanuts for heads so had to 'glue' together 2 marshmallow
bananas and dip them in white chocolate. They don't look nearly as
nice as the ones in the book nor as pretty as the works of art
by Saucy but the kids enjoyed them and that's all that mattered.

Thanks to M, D, K & A for a great time at the farm! RED was delicious! Teehee
And thanks to Auntie Viki for staying with CJ for 2 "sleepless overs", hope you got caught up on sleep in Comox!

Happy Earth Day!!

My darling 5 year old decided that it would be a good idea
to help our Mother Earth by picking up litter.
She got together some friends at recess time to start and
told them "if you don't know what it is, don't pick it up!"
This evening we went back
to her school armed with some good
garbage pickin' tools that Moto-Moto made for her.
I am so proud of her for thinking of this idea on
her own and being so respectful & responsible
to the environment.
She was a little disgusted...
but only because "people would be so rude not to use the garbage cans."
She thinks that perhaps if there were more places in the playground
for kids to put their garbage it would help.

She is such a good girl! When she saw the previews for
Disney'sEARTH movie she got thinking ... then got really MAD about the world
changing and animal's habitats being destroyed.

What a wonderfully caring little girl we have!
We are so lucky!!

We also had a little fun and made some
EARTH Day Cookies.

I'm back! After a week and a half of trying to help the girls feel better.
We had an emergency trip to the dentist and the doctor.
Poor CJ has a tooth abscess and needs a tooth pulled but they are waiting
until the swelling goes down so they are able to get into her
tiny little mouth to remove the tooth. CD has been getting the
chills and had a slightblue tinge to her... scary!
She seems to be doing better and may go for
blood work on Thursday. Poor girls...
They did enjoy Easter, here's what it looked like:

Hippity Hoppity
Easter's On Its Way

Here are a few pictures from last year's
Easter photo shoot for you to enjoy.
(We've been busy around here renovating and painting
so not too much time for crafting.)

I love the little nibbles in the carrots in this one ...

AND adore these CHEEKS! So kissable...
