Mittens and Tanks

 We have had temperatures in the 80's yesterday and today. I am not sure why we are going directly from snow and freezing temperatures to tank top weather but that has been our Spring so far. The weekend's low will be 33*.  Maybe we should start wearing mittens and tank tops so we are always prepared!
The Summer weather has us feeling like this!
And mornings have us feeling like this!!!!!
Mittens and Tanks!

Pink Moon

 Last night I was standing in the horse pasture getting Willow and Cheyenne up to eat their dinner, when I saw the biggest most brightest moon I have ever seen!! It was so perfect I called my Mom and told her she had to put her boots on and come meet me in the field right away!! Last night was a celestial event called a Pink Moon!! And boy was it BEAUTIFUL! 

Hello Moon!!
It looked like a perfect picture of a painted moon from the renaissance! 
The pictures really captured the pinkness of the moon glow!
I am so happy the horses enjoy a late dinner
I would have been so sad to miss this!
Good Night Moon!

Thank you for the beautiful evening!

Perfect Sunday Snack

 Have you ever made a snack that was so good that it just makes your whole day so much better?? It wasn't like I was in a bad mood or anything when I set out to make some food for my very hungry stomach, but after my delicious creation, I have been on cloud nine !! I took some naan, toasted it with butter and garlic paste until it started to turn a golden brown. Then I dotted the top with pieces of Havarti cheese and let it sit in the toaster oven until they just started to melt. Once melty, I added fresh baby spinach and let that sink into the cheese. Then when the spinach just started to wilt, I pulled out my naan creation and topped everything with a balsamic glaze. I have to say, I tried to take a picture first, but it smelled sooooo good I just had to take a bite!

The Perfect Sunday Snack!!

I will be making this tasty treat again!!

Mmmm maybe really really soon!

Baking Cookies with Baby William

 I am so happy that my sister and her little family have moved back home! What's even better is that we are neighbors! The other day I walked up the hill to Abigail's house and picked up William- or rather stole him- so she could have a little 'Me' time (let's be honest, it is hard to shower and take care of yourself when you are a new mom, and she really really needed a shower, if just for my sake hahahah). William and I then set on a great adventure to my house and it was time to make cookies!! Together we made Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies :)

William fell asleep to the sound of the kitchen mixer
He is truly the best baking assistant. He even likes my Frozen 1 &2 Soundtracks playing in the background
Mmmm, someone likes the smell of cookies baking in the oven!
Ta-Da!!! Our first batch of cookies together! 
I hope we start a new tradition of baking at Aunt Amelia's House :)

Snow Showers and Spring Flowers

 Today has been an interesting mix of snowflakes and flower petals. At first glance, the Doodle Doggies were not quite sure what was falling from the sky- you know since it is the end of April and all.

"Uh Mom? Is this snow??"
It sure is!!!
Look! Flowers as white as snow, covered by snow!
Smells just as sweet, just a little chilly
It is so interesting to see so much green under all this snow!
Merlin was even confused... "Some of this is wet and cold, and some of this is soft and petal-y"
Poor chilly tulips! I hope you warm up soon!
"Hmmm, this snow smells extra good"
Maverick, you must be smelling the lilacs that were just starting to bloom! See?
Or maybe our lovely magnolia bushes!

It has been a blustery day of snow showers and spring flowers! 

Happy Winter Spring Wednesday!

Before the Snow

We are under a freeze warning tonight and the forecast calls for snow tomorrow! We quickly ran outside to enjoy a beautiful reminder of the nice days of April. Dear Spring....
We love you so much
We appreciate every fragrant blossom
We are sorry that it is going to be so cold tonight!
The fishies said they hope the snow goes away quickly!
One last look before the snow
We love you Spring!
