I will be back next week

But here is what we have been up to for the past five weeks that has been keeping me away from the beloved "Blog World"
Lots of new recipes ** will post them next week**
(Dark Chocolate muffins...and they are healthy...no oil, sugar and uses whole wheat flour and 60% dark chocolate chips)

James had his surgery on his neck...a 3 inch incision across his neck, 1 dented Adams apple...and a cyst that was 98% fluid, so we are happy.
**here are the boys playing "doctor" on James the night after his surgery**
Lots of picnics (and yes, Gabe is eating mustard with his chicken...he eats it on anything...ketchup grosses his out)
Lots of family visiting...This is me with my Grandma Lita, she is 91 years old and such an awesome woman, I look up to her in so many ways and hope to be half as strong as she is...what an inspiration!
Lots and lots and lots of golf! Gabe starts golf lessons next week!!Fun trips to the park
And some not so fun trips to the park
More new recipes **will post them next week**
(Chocolate Coconut cake...tastes JUST LIKE a hostess snoball)
Trips to walk around the temple and admire its beauty
Fort making, popcorn eating movie watching extravaganzas
and a Preschool graduation!! I can't believe I have a child who is in kindergarten!!
Gabe enjoyed this past year so much...he learned so much and had AMAZING teachers...he is already asking when he can go back
So....5 weeks in a nutshell.......
This next week is going to be very very busy as well. Heather and I have a wedding cake to do and we are making 70ish handmade sugar flowers **picture below** to go on a 4 tier cake for this upcoming Saturday. Wish us luck!! woohoo!!
See you next week!!! :)

I am jealous of your time with Grandma Lita! I just adore her and admire her for her spunk. I mean, what other 91 year old does so much traveling??? :)

Those muffins look heavenly! If you make them again, and you need a sampler, you know where I live. And yes, that was a prime example of a pregnant lady begging for treats...shamelessly ;)
