Cupcke decorating-Easter 2009

I hope everyone had a good weekend.  Ours was great, getting to hang out with each other, making Easter Story cookies, going to church, and Easter dinner…  So nice.  My kid were fabulous helpers getting everything ready for Easter dinner.  I couldn’t have done it without them.  Thanks, guys!

Easter 2009

Head over to Laura’s for Menu Plan Monday and see what is on everyone else’s plate this week.  For the Gluten Free Menu Swap, Gluten Free Goodness is our lovely host this week.  She has chosen flax as the theme ingredient.  I will be using a lot of flax this next week or so.  We egged it up for Easter and I feel a need to do our baking egg-free for the nest week to balance it our!  Flax seed is my usual go to for binding in egg-free baked goods.  I usually use golden flax in my baking as my littlest one is so picky – the golden flax really blends in…
