Love and Pink Ribbon Cookies

Summer is finally over for us.

The boys have returned to school and the weather (as usual in SoCal for early September) 
has turned to something between sizzling and scorching.

I baked lots and lots over the summer while it was still cool enough to turn on the oven.
But these were my favorites, so I wanted to share them with you 
on my first day back from summer vacation.





My good friend's sister-in-law was diagnosed with breast cancer.

She wanted to bring her something sweet, but couldn't really decide what.
She said..."just make anything that would show her we love her, 
and will support her in anyway we can..."




Three little words, but so very important.

It's all anyone truly wants to hear when they are going through something difficult and scary.




I added some sparkly hearts and ribbons.




Simple and sweet.




I'm happy to say she's doing great...

and her sister-in-law was with her every step of the way!

So happy to be back, can't wait to share lots and lots of pictures with you!

Summer's Here!


School is finally out!

FINALLY!!!

I know, the rest of the country has been out for ages, 
but our boys just had their last day a week ago.




On the last day of school, Ethan came home, opened up his backpack, 
and filled the recycle bin to overflowing with homework, study guides and tests.

His homework agenda/calendar was thrown on top with a little extra flair.
I think he would have started a bonfire if he could.

Somehow, it started a trend and since then our house has been turned upside down.




The boys decided to stop sharing a room...

Which means Jack moved to the top bunk and Ethan moved into the playroom...

Which means the closets were turned inside out and clothes reassigned to proper areas...

And then furniture was moved around, swapped out and shimmied into place...

Which meant every single book we own had to come out of the shelves 
so the bookcases would budge...

And the Salvation Army has just been scheduled for its third pick-up...

And now there are paint swatches all over the floor of Ethan's new room while designs his new teenage living space.

Sheesh.




It's pretty much one of my favorite things to do in all the world.

Getting rid of the old to bring in the new.
Re-organizing their spaces and donating what we don't need any longer.

Re-thinking how we can use the spaces and furniture we have in a new, more functional way.

(not to mention the dust and ick that gets removed in the process...woo-hoo!)

Have a Happy Fourth of July everyone!!!

World Cup Soccer Cookies!

Are you all watching the World Cup in your house?



We are, and we're loving seeing all the different countries compete.

Go USA!
Go CROATIA!

And the fans!!!

Oh my!
That's some serious dedication.




During the opening game between Brazil and Croatia,
 Jack asked us the very important question that I'm sure was on everyone's minds.....



"Do they get orange slices at half-time too?"




Love that kid.




GOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAALLL!
