Is spring here yet?

This has been one of the most up and down winters we have had in a while. It can be freezing one day and 80 degrees the next. I love winter, I do. But I am ready for spring. :)

So what have we been up to lately? Play dates, sleeping in, lazy mornings, making donuts. You know, the usual.

I found Avery sleeping like this the other day.

We had a breakfast play date with Zoe and Sydney on Friday. It was our first time to go to McDonald's since Avery was born. I do have to say I know now why its a favorite kid place. The play area was awesome! And the tables were set up around it so us moms could be near them while they were playing.

All four sitting and eating (this didn't last long!).

Saturday morning donuts sounded like a good idea. So we made biscuit donuts. Just a can of grand biscuts, rolled out a bit, with a hole cut in the center. Then brush with butter or oil on both sides. Bake for 15 mins at 375 degrees. From here it is up to you. The recipe I found said to dip in a sugar cinnamon mixture before baking. My girls love icing and sprinkles so I made a simple powdered sugar icing and used our Valentine sprinkles.  I think they liked them!
