A Mirror Conversation

"I have a mouth."

"And these are my teeth."

"They're gonna fall out, and a fairy is going to come and take them."

(Can you see the excitement building?)

 "And I'm gonna get big teeth!"

I guess she really listened that day {a long time ago} when I told her about the tooth fairy.

Observations from a high chair.

What's in your backyard?

Pizza Pie

Oreo pizza from the Pizza Pie Cafe.

With the kids in tow {and some bunny marshmallows and animal crackers), we ventured out early last Saturday morning to head to the temple with some family members. {Thanks to Julia for watching the kids in the waiting room!) My man's niece is going to Germany to be an LDS missionary soon

Afterwards we headed to the Pizza Pie Cafe for lunch.

Best pizza ever. I dig their Oreo pizza. Yeah, you heard me.
OREO pizza.

My little man dug it too until he got bored of sitting in the high chair and just wanted the camera. {Sorry bud.}

The beautiful missionary-to-be. {Sorry, that's the best picture I got.}

Have you ever been to a restaurant where your kids don't want to eat anything on the menu?

And so you end up raiding the salad bar for mandarine oranges and craisins. 

And then they really just end up begging for the candy from the little round machines in the lobby?

{Lots of begging, here.}

Well, someone got her way. But mostly so she would sit down and let the adults thoroughly enjoy their scrumdiddlyumptious pizza {while it was still warm}.

And we did.

Craving Cadbury

On Easter morning:

"Ok sweetie. If you give me a really big smile I will give you {this} Cadbury Creme Egg!"
(Before church? In her new Easter dress? What was I thinking?}

"Ok mommy."

"I can hold it."

"I know, but first you've gotta give me a big smile."


"But I really want it."

"I know you do. Just give me a really big smile first!

C'mon, you're almost there!"

{lots of clapping}

"That's my girl!"

{For the record, she did get to have a small bite. I'm not that crazy.}

It's 3:07 PM.
This girl just had a nap.
That's a big deal at this house.

Tonight I will be making this strawberry sauce in order to make these cheesecake bars.

Thank you Spring.

Such a girl.

"Mommy, don't put my hood on because it will mess up my hair."

So true, sis. So true.

How to make a lollipop bouquet with Play-Doh.

1. Begin by pinching off small pieces of {fluorescent} Play-Doh and placing them atop toothpicks {a must}.

2. Stick said toothpicks in a large ball of same-colored Play-Doh.

3. Share with your loved ones.

(Notice my hand)
{And don't forget to make some to eat.}
