We played with my friend Trish's puppies. They are a mixed breed collie and cocker spaniel. So we have decided they must me Collie Spaniels. The kids had a great time. Puppies are always fun.

Everyone picked their favorite puppy and got to pamper it for awhile. Trish said the puppies have never been so calm. They didn't have to fight for attention.

It was another great day!

We took a non traditional approach to Egg decorating this year. We rolled, baked and decorated Easter cookies instead of dying eggs. Easter kind of stuck up on us. I have decided I like to hide plastic eggs, it is so much better to mow over a lost one of those than a rotten real egg.

The kids were very creative and had a lot of fun doing it. Of course they didn't mind that they get to eat the first cookie they made.

I was so very impressed at how well they rolled out the cookies this time. They are getting so much better at it. Of course the Christmas cookie cutter with lots of narrow areas make it harder. So I guess from now on We will only decorate round christmas bulbs. HA! OR ...maybe it means I need to use this exam same recipe.
