Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day started out early with the usual 5am Rose feeding then downstairs to start doing a whole bunch of baking. Maple Chocolate Chip Pancake Muffins, Sugar Doughnut Muffins and Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies.  The pancake muffins were pretty good.  I think they would have been better fresh from the oven with syrup but not bad a few hours old.  The doughnut muffins were fabulous.  Soft, tender, moist and flavorful.  A bit like a cake donut shaped like a muffin and rolled in sugar.  Mmmmmmmmm.  The cookies tasted like Nutter Butters.  Oh yah.

We took the muffins down to Stockton for brunch at Steve’s sister Karen’s beautiful new house.  I have quite a few pictures, almost all with Rose in them.  She’s just too photogenic.  I can’t help it.  *grin*

The aftermath of the brunch.  The quiche was soooo good.
Sharing grins with Uncle Jeffery.
Even Rose got to have brunch.  I love the improvised bib.
Karen’s boyfriend made her a rain stick that was just beautiful.  Rose was fascinated and would like to request for her birthday. 😉
Aunt Kristen gave Rose a bomber jacket and matching shirt.  Isn’t it cute?!
Doing her best action star impression.  “Freeze scumbags!”

In the evening we headed to me parents house for a reeeealy yummy dinner of my dad’s split pea soup and Hawaiian rolls.  It was a nice end to a nice day.  Rose went all out with the gifts too.  A dozen red roses and a box of Redvines (Steve), a really great cookbook that I wanted (my dad) and a hand and foot print in plaster (my mom via her friend Amanda).  I felt loved.

The moms (and Rose).
