Saturday Snapshots...

On Saturday morning, 
this little girl...
AND this little guy 
were the first ones up in the house.
 Sophie and Riley helped me make breakfast for the rest of the crew!
We decided to make homemade doughnuts.
 I was waiting to make these on a quiet morning at home when we didn't have to rush out the door to be anywhere.
Saturday was the perfect morning to give it a whirl. 
It was cool, dark and rainy outside AND we had no where we HAD to be!
I heart mornings like that;)
These were super easy to make!!
Some we just glazed and then others we dipped in cinnamon sugar. 
Either way, they were delicious. 
Corban made my day by declaring that he thought these were even better than the Dunkin'!!--HA!!
Now THAT'S a true compliment!

After a quiet morning at home, it was time to brave the rain and head out the door.
 We decided to take the kids to the Y for a while before running a few errands.
Then it was back home again for naps and to get the house presentable for company.
Saturday evening we hosted my family for dinner and celebrated my wonderful mom's birthday!
Our meal was simple:
Barbecue chicken sandwiches, baked beans, spinach salad, chips and CAKE!
After dinner, it was PRESENT time!
Look at all those sweet homemade cards. 
Each made by little hands. 
Each made with LOVE!
And what party is complete with out a little dance competition?
Yup...we know how to ROCK it out over here!
And this may surprise you, 
but my sweet Grandma is a super star when it comes to...
"The Monster Mash";)

I'm a new follower and I'm not sure I've commented yet - I just have to say how adorable your precious girl is! She has the most adorable little smile! We are in the process of adopting through state foster care and I thought it was neat to see that you guys have done foster care, domestic adoption, and now international adoption. Wow! Looking forward to following your journey toward your next sweet girl!

I love all the games and competitions your family does...too fun. Those donuts look great, I have a sweet memory from my childhood of my dad cooking donuts with me. Love your hair too, looks like a nice hair cut...something I'm in the need of!
