And the days roll on...

We've been busy, playing our days away.  Blocks.  Bubbles.

The first tattoo.
My little bad boy.

Speaking of bad boys, should I be concerned about this?

We made a cookie puzzle.
To celebrate spring.
Simple to do.  Just roll out sugar cookie dough and cut the pieces.  Chill in fridge 5 minutes, then bring out and remove the pieces.  Push almonds into them for handles.  Bake pieces 7-9 minutes and big cookie around 14 minutes (watch until edges brown).
As soon as they come out, recut the pieces with cookie cutters while still warm.  Then allow to cool and decorate as desired. 

The twins found Elmo.

And they've gotten good at feeding themselves.

Scooter found a sunny spot.
In grass that is turning green!

And Juliet and Horace spent some time in the sun themselves.

Have I mentioned lately how much I love spring?  :-)

I can't believe how big the chickens are getting. They lost there cuteness. It will be much easier to eat for dinner now.

Aaaah! Horace! I love you!

You are always doing fun stuff. I feel like such a lazy, not-very-fun mother. And I'm jealous that your twins are feeding themselves! Mine just sprawl out, like "Feed me, biatch!" They don't even try.

I don't care if they can feed themselves. I am still holding them for bottles. They grow up way too fast.

You have the coolest ideas! I'm gonna steal the cookie puzzle one for sure!
