National Walnut Day

Seeing as it was National Walnut Day - I thought I would surprise my hubby with an Apple Walnut Coffee Cake! I let him sleep in (since he usually gets up on the weekends with the boys) and prepared a yummy breakfast treat! Mmm! Only I left the sugar out of the cake part... so kind…

Frog Jumping Day

Caleb had a random Wednesday off for Native American Day. Yay! Starting the day with a puzzle... I love Caleb's bed head! It's the best...

Jeffrey's birthday party was on Mother's Day so we had lots of things to accomplish. My boys did surprise me with decorated candles and new sauté pans I really wanted. They love me!
