For the girls

The girls out grew their last bow holder. So I added a bigger one to the girls bedroom wall right next to their ballet bar. I used tulle to clip the bows to. Painted their names and put glitter over it. I used fairy cutouts from a gift grandma sent. On one side I looped the tulle so bows with barrette clips will not slip out. Ta-Da!

So the girls room is really girly... pink, purple, green, lace, a ballet bar! I decided not to paint in their room to keep it simple and pretty. They did get a ballet bar though ... and a pretty little saying above it.

Christian got a pretty cool dino theme in his room.... we painted a huge volcano!

I did a bit of purple and gold in the kitchen to go with my LSU stuff. Purple rectangles with yellow paw prints and tigers.

We've been enjoying our trip to Disney World! When we leave here we will be on our way to Alaska to set up our new home!

Cream Puffs

I got this recipe from a neighbor a couple years ago. I love making these because they are cheap and easy. Let me know if you try this recipe and what you think.

1 cup Water
1/2 cup butter
1 cup flour
4 eggs

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Heat water and butter to boiling. Stir flour in vigorously over low heat until it forms a ball. Remove from heat. Beat in eggs 1 at a time until smooth. Drop on a baking sheet about 1/4 cupful about 3 inches apart. Bake 35 - 40 min. Let cool and fill.

8 oz cool whip (thawed)
1 big package of instant pudding
1 1/2 cup milk

mix pudding and milk until smooth. mix in cool whip and fill puffs.
(i normally use chocolate pudding, but don’t be afraid to try other flavors!)

About Me

I am a wife and mother, which basically means I am clothes washer, food maker, money distributor, calendar maker and booger wiper. My children fill most of my time, but I still enjoy random things. My mood is always changing, and what I do changes with my mood.

Easter Hair

Today I did Madison's hair in two braids. When you french braid you normally braid over each piece but instead I did it under, as to make the braids raised. Then I "threaded" ribbon through.
