Here is Bay with her chopsticks from P.F. Changs restaurant. She is really good at it and wants to use them to eat often.

Bay said, "Mom, I like the pink one"
Bay took a picture of us. I had the zoom set too close. Didn't feel like trying again.
I thought the red stairs were cool.
We are all getting a head cold at the moment and this just wore June slap out. She fell asleep on the way home. We were trying to keep her awake. She thought it was funny but just couldn't keep her eyes open. If you look closely at the picture you can see her smiling while asleep.

This is the girls playing with Emerson in the green sand.
And this is June climbing a tree at the park.

They are basically rice crispie treats with candy eggs in them. The nests are honey bunches of oats(because that's what I had) or corn flakes and toasted coconut. We put whopper eggs in them. I usually print the recipes I find so that it has a reference on it. This one I wrote down for some reason and I don't know where I got it from. If you google "no-bake easter bird nests" there are a ton of different ways to make them. *Okay*I found out that it came from the artful parent blog. Her blog is in the left column of my blog. I figured it was one of them.
Here is the recipe:
No bake Bird Nests
34 lg marshmallows
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
4 cups cornflakes
1/4 cup toasted coconut
In large saucepan stir marshmallows and butter on low to med. heat. Add vanilla. Stir until melted. remove from heat. Fold in cornflakes and coconut. drop by tablespoons (depending on how big you wan the nest to be) into a greased muffin cup. Oil your fingers before you press down and pinch edges. remove and place on wax/parchment paper to cool. add candy eggs.Cover and let harden. store in airtight container. makes 23-36 nest depending on size of nests. Mine made 23.
