That same weekend, we were lucky enough to get to have some family photos taken. Charlie's first birthday is in a week (Oh my goodness!!!) and I wanted to have some pictures taken. Matt's cousin, Kelly, has been taking photography classes and has a wonderful blog (check it out HERE!! It's fantastic!!) and she was kind enough to take time out of her Saturday to come take some pictures for us! She did an absolutely fabulous job with the pictures and we are just THRILLED with them!! Here's a few of my favorites :)
My husbands birthday was a couple of weeks ago and I've been meaning to share the recipe for the birthday breakfast I made for him. Have you ever noticed how there is a FINE LINE between breakfast and dessert? Think about the cinnamon rolls, french toast, monkey bread, turnovers...they are all almost nearly dessert. This recipe is one of those...You could really add a scoop of ice cream to the side and it would make a great dessert!! My Mom made these a few years ago for a family get together and my husband went crazy over them. The only difference between mine and hers is that I coated mine in cinnamon and sugar. She makes a glaze out of milk, vanilla and confectioners sugar. You can top them that way and add a few walnut pieces if you'd like! There are a lot of great ways to make this, but try them out and I know you'll love them!!!

Time for me to hop off this computer and get the kiddos ready for bed. (It feels so strange to be writing so late!) I hope you all had a fantastic Mother's Day weekend!!
