Here are a few photos of our day . . .

The pantry was tidied and everything was in order . . .
Katelyn went to the grocery store and got everything we need for  our Memorial Day Celebration.

Katelyn made three batches of sugar cookies . . . they are inside the covered tins. The kids tried a few . . . you know, just to make sure they were good enough to serve on Monday!

The dough is rising for Pioneer Woman's Cinnamon Rolls . . .
I divided the dough into two bowls and put them in the fridge.
Would you believe the dough is still rising in the fridge?

Key Lime cakes are in the oven.
(please ignore the spill over sheet pan in the bottom of the oven ~ it keeps the oven free from burnt on spills)

Katelyn was busy in the kitchen . . . one of her favorite places to be
cooking gets a little messy!

Ryan was thrilled that Katelyn was in the kitchen cooking.

Pretty apples . . . waiting for tomorrow's baking

The kitchen is all tidied up and back to normal after our baking fun!

Tomorrow pie baking!
