fairy garden

i decided to start collecting things to make the girls a fairy garden for easter a month or so ago. i found the cutest little figures and accessories at the dollar tree! they had a mini egg hunt at our house to collect the figures to build the rest of their fairy garden.

glen asked why dont you help them put the fairy garden together? these before and after pictures will tell you why. i wanted to at least get the base of the fairy garden together before the tornado hit.

the boys

a little update on the boys....

saying brody loves his lovey is a HUGE understatement just like saying brody loves to be held.

jackson loves dressing up and being in the middle of whatever the girls are doing which throws a wrench in any craft plans we may have.

dirty faro

this was a take on dirty rice. it was super filling and didn't even need an entree but we ate it with mustard baked chicken. i would definitely make this again for a filling easy to make big batch kind of meal. it did use chicken livers though and that may have turned me off a bit because i am not a fan of handling raw meat and they were extra slimy...and not something i usually have on hand.
