As most of you probably know by now, I babysit that little neph of mine every Saturday. One of my favorite things to do with him is make him a special breakfast Saturday morning before we head off to gymnastics class. Aww, Aunt of the Year ... I know. Just kidding.
Normally we make blueberry waffles and turkey bacon, but I wanted to mix things up a bit. I remembered my Mom used to make canned buttermilk biscuit donuts for my brother growing up, and since Reese will slice you over anything sweet, I thought he'd really go for some homemade Cinnamon and sugar donuts.
They are super easy to make and the kiddos can even help with steps 1, 4 and 5. If you have them assist with step 2, I will call CPS on yo ass.
That was fun, huh?
Saturday night I attended a couples baby shower for my dear friend Megan and her hubs. She barely even looks pregnant and she's 7 months along. Not fair. I'm going to be a Beluga whale. Oh wait, I already am.
Anyway, here are a few pictures from the shower, which was a lot of fun.
We're throwing her a "B is for Baby" girls only baby shower this weekend. Pics to follow. I love party planning. I totally should have been a party planner. Maybe in my second life.
Speaking of parties, below is some of the Birthday Bounty I scored from my friends and family. I love, love it all. Thank you to every single one of you, I am so blessed!
