Ok so I've been wanting to make more things at home, I worry about the preservatives and other stuff that's in the food we buy. We haven't had donuts in a long time. and I decided to try making them at home. OH MY GAAAAWD!! they are so easy to make and they taste so much BETTER then anything you'd get somewhere else. Aidan had one and he comes back to me in the kitchen with his plate and says "that was the best donut I've ever had!" So GOOD. we did one batch and it made 18 donuts and about 24 donut holes. we put powdered sugar on half and a mix of cinnamon and sugar on the other half. Can't wait to do that again. Here's a picture of our donuts. They aren't perfect circles, but they taste awesome!

March For Babies

It's that time again! The March of Dimes is having their March for Babies (formerly known as WalkAmerica)10k walk in my area on April 27th. I've placed a badge on the side of the blog and donating is easy, you can even use PayPal and it's tax deductable. Every little bit helps. If you know me then you know I've been participating in this fund raiser since I was in High School, there have only been 3 that I've not walked in in the last 10 years and only one that I didn't raise money for.
So if you're able and you'd like to donate then please click on my badge on the right side of the blog.
thanks!!! XOXOXO

Aidan and Uncle Kevin

I started out with a template by Michelle C0leman (free from Little Dreamer, not sure how long ago though)- it was originally a 2 photo template, but I took out the other one to work with just this one photo.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.
