Mission: School bakery goods

Day 1

Yesterday we decided to make Disappearing Marshmallow Brownies that turned out looked great. Ava and Gavin hated them warm but liked them today. Grace and Aaron loved them and I would say they were good. I would definitely recommend them for anyone to make and they are still in the running to bring to Grace's school.

Day 2

On another mission today to find a great baking item to take to Grace's school I am trying out "Award winning" soft chocolate chip cookies from So with Ella asleep I am ready to get baking with two of my favorite helpers :)

Ava, of course had to put on her baking hat.

Gavin, the ham as always.


I don't know what contest they were in to win any kind of award... I just don't like the cookies! So frustrating because I could have just used my family recipe and they would have been great. Next time I will stick to recipes I know are great for traditional cookies. Now to start looking for what to make next...

A little surprise.

Most days I feel like a driver, cook and maid to everyone in the family. I know being a mom s a "thankless" job and I am more than happy to do it. I love it and I love my kids more than anything else in the world so when I went upstairs to put the kids to bed I had the most wonderful surprise waiting for me.

Grace made my bed and Gavin put a heart card on my bedside table. How sweet are they?!

Little things like that make all the sleepless nights, days without showers and not eating your first meal until after lunch because you didn't have time well worth it. I just had to share :)
