Our Trip to Legoland

We had a great trip to Legoland! We had been looking forward to it all week. It was a very fun, even though the weather was overcast and cold (it even sprinkled on us once!)

The Legos were amazing! They statues and models were so interesting and intriguing. The engineers have designed the most amazing displays, we could have stared for hours.

White House, Obama's Inauguration

Statue of Liberty

New York City

My two complaints about Legoland were: #1 Legoland was not open long enough. Only 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. We couldn't get through even half park in one day. 2nd: The rides were just o.k., they were more like a amusement park then a theme park. I wanted to see more Lego inspired rides.

My husband sent me this email, someone at his work came up with this idea and took it alittle too far! So, for all the men out there that feel inferior to Mr. Darcy here is a shirt for you.

And yes, my husband will not humor me or lower himself and watch any of Jane Austin's films. So sad, if he only knew how far it could get him in the end!

Flowering Pear Tree

After my sunny trip to California, I came home to this beautiful sight!

We have 5 flowering pear trees in our yard, they look just like popcorn popping.

The neighborhood is full of them, it was one of the things that drew us to this area!

When I was putting out my Spring Decorations I noticed I had alot of chicks.

Since I have no other girlie's living in my house, I guess I'll take as many chicks as I can get.

Isn't she cute?

Easter Pizza

Who doesn't love pizza, especially around Easter? This is a fun, kid friendly recipe for candy pizza that my boys and I whipping up this past Monday.
Candy Bars: Butterfinger, Symphony, Skor, Crunch, Cookies and Creme, Kit Kat, Reese's peanut butter cups and plain holidayM&M's.
This is the fun part: In a large bowl put all the candy bars together and let the kids go crazy!! (Except: peanut butter cups - they get too messy and Skor - you have to cut that one up with a knife.) You can also use a food processor and chop the candy into small pieces.
Once the fun is over add your Skor bar, your chopped up peanut butter cups and Easter M&M's. Set aside for the end. This is very tricky because it is hard to keep little hands out. Too tempting!

Now for the cookie batter:

1 1/4 cubes (or 10 Tlbs.) softened butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup nestles mini morsels - semi sweet

Combine butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Add salt, baking soda and flour - stir til combined. Add mini morsels.

Place dough in a greased 14" round pizza pan or a 15 1/2" x 10 1/2" x 1" rectangular pan.

Cook for 15 to 17 minutes at 375 degrees.

While the dough is baking in a microwave safe bowl add: 1 cup milk chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of peanut butter. Heat until melted and smooth, it makes a yummy sauce.

Once the cookie dough is done baking, smooth the sauce all over the top.

Again, let your kids go crazy and decorate the top with all the candy toppings!! Allow cookies to completely cool in pan. Once cooled serve and enjoy.

I hope everyone has a great Easter! We're off to California to spend the holiday with my sister and her family.

Quilting Stars

I am participating in Star week over at Molly's Blog. For my stars, I decided I wanted to share the star quilt I am slowly working on. Sad to admit but I started these blocks last spring/summer and actually miss placed them. Which is not a shock if you saw my quilt room!!!

This pattern was going around my quilt circle as a Fourth of July/Americana idea, but I wanted to make the stars smaller and of course pink ~ no surprise there.

I used a creamy high-quality muslin(yes, there is such a thing!) around the stars - which makes them pop. I have 9 more to stars to piece and then I plan to find a fun pink for the sashings in between. With so many fabrics in the stars I will need to find just the right fabric. Sounds like I need to go shopping!!!
