We had a great weekend. My in laws were here to celebrate my sons birthday. He turns 7 on Wednesday. They were able to get a last minute flight out here to surprise him. He was very excited when he woke up Friday morning to find them here. They were able to see his flag football game yesterday. They didn’t win, but they played so much better than the week before. My 6 year old even managed to get 4 flags! He was so proud of himself. They have another game tonight, and 2 practices this week, so it will be a week full of football here!
It has been far too long since I have given you a muffin recipe. I made some with the left over Easter candy, but they never made it to the photo shoot I made these last week, and they were a hit. They really do taste like french toast in a muffin form. You even get to have a little syrup on top As usual, I froze the leftovers, and they were still moist and tasty when I took them out. My 6 year old told me “Mommy, you always make the best home made stuff”.
