These planes will be flying their way into Oliver's classroom for his birthday. They were super fun and easy to make. Nothings better than an easy project for the kids to do that is fun, but also looks cute. Thanks for the idea Mom (and Simon).
Can you see Violette sneaking one out for a test flight? They fly great, but she thought the wings were HOT.

So everyone knows I love my sister Rozannah, but sometimes I hate her too. And when I say hate, I mean it in the nicest most jealous way possible. She is so creative! It drives me crazy - I love everything she makes. Anyways she has a new Etsy site and the ruffled watches are, needless to say, adorable! The pictures do not do them justice. So if you need an idea for Mother's Day look no longer. Check out her Etsy site here.

The weather this past weekend was UNbeLIeVaBLE!!! Growing up we had the rule that it had to be over 75 to go swimming. Last year we started that rule here in Buffalo. The kids begged all weekend to go swimming - it was Over 75 for several days!!! Seriously perfect! We loved every minute of it!
Conference was about to start and I could hear Oliver outside asking his neighbor friends if they wanted to watch conference. They came in (and tried to sneak upstairs) and then sat down and watched conference for almost all of the first session. I'm sure the treats were the major incentive to stay, but they had to listen to get one. My kids get so excited for conference - hopefully they will continue to always be excited for it.
Can you see how excited Violette was to be there?
She didn't know there was candy in the eggs.
Penelepe knew exactly what to do and her mean mother made her hide some of her eggs for the other kids (she really didn't mind).
I went into the bathroom and found this on April 1st. I froze and said Violette! Then I saw she had her diaper on and I could smell a nice fragrance as opposed to the opposite, and realized it was my conditioner. Way to go Violette! Great joke - can you imagine what she will do when she is a teenager?
I made these yummy strawberry cupcakes. Violette was so mad when she found out the frosting was really mashed potatoes. So mad she spit them out. (That's what you get for tricking your mother!)
