To start this post out right...I thought I'd post this egg smiley face! I didn't mean for it to end up this way...it just did! The bubble nose in the middle made it even more face-like!
I have to admit, while trying to pick a title for this post I typed things out and deleted them many times. It's a bit of a miscellaneous jumble of things today... ;)
My husband loves pecan pie. When I found the recipe for these pecan pie muffins, I knew I had to try them out! I added some ice cream to them for a really enjoyable dessert. I didn't try it myself...but Chris and the children said they were fantastic!!! You can find the recipe for them HERE.
Madelyn and Jaxson had a recital this past week. They both did a great job! :)
Freshly washed eggs from the "girls"...
Madelyn made banana bread and took it to a birthday party we attended this weekend. Everyone said it tasted amazing! :) Although I didn't try it...I must admit that it smelled divine!
The other day, I looked outside and found my gal reading. She looked so sweet and lovely, I had to capture it with the camera...
Pop-Pop (my dad) brought the mini-bike and go-kart over for the boys to ride. They have a *ton* of fun. Jaxson doesn't like to ride the mini-bike so Xavier drives it the most while Jaxson drove the go-kart (although Jax let X take a few turns in the go-kart too!)...
And last *but not least* here is a finished knitting project that I did for Jaxson! It's a yoda hat! I found the pattern HERE. I don't really need a pattern for the hat part itself. Actually, I did my own pattern for the hat base. I just needed the pattern to knit the ears. I wasn't sure how to do those correctly! :)
If I make another, I will use stiffer yarn. The ears don't always want to stay out properly...so I think a stiffer yarn will help with that. :) *And* although Jaxson isn't smiling *big* in the photo, he does love the hat and will put it to good use this winter! :)
After this crazy jumbled-up-with-many-things post, if you made it this far, I thank-you! :) I hope you enjoyed visiting here today. It's so fun to share what we have been up to!
Today is cloudy and wet out. The house is dark and cozy. The birds are singing outside and the children are playing Legos. I taught spin early this morning...so my workout is in...now it's time for laundry, housework and a bit of reading or knitting! :)
