Here is what happens when it snows on Easter.






You have an eggie hunt inside. A girl has gotta do what a girl has gotta do! LOL And my daddy slept through the whole thing. We even placed her white chocolate bunny beside him He had to have been horribly tired. Cause Shayla (and us too) was loud and laughing. Just when I got her changed into play clothes and was having the big kids go out to hide her stash, it started pouring the snow! And this morning, Mark took down our winter time flags and put up the springy tulip ones. LOL We had a laugh over that! I am sad because I didnt get any awake photos of Jaidyn. When she was awake at the beginning, I hadnt settled down from everyone getting there and getting the food setup. Then when I did get the camera out, she was in baby dreamland.
I loved the cheesecake we made. I used a chocolate chip base, but next time will try a sugar cookie. The chocolate chip made it very sweet and maybe too rich. Well not TOOO rich, cause it was very yummy :o)
Cookie Dough Cheesecake Recipe
3-8 oz blocks of cream cheese, softened
3 eggs well beated
1 1/4 c. sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
one full recipe of cookie dough (this could be choc chip or sugar cookie)
Prepare the cookie dough OR you can use 2 packages of refrigerator cookie dough. Pat into a buttered (or spray with nonstick) 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Mix together cheese, eggs, sugar and vanilla. Pour on top of cookie dough. (If you use a choc chip cookie base, you can sprinkle a few chips on top to pretty it up.) Bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. It will be very soft on top. Do not overbake or you will burn your cookie crust! Let cool. Refrigerate. It will sink a bit in the middle and the cookie crust will come on the sides.


Hope everyone had a wonderful day.

She is adorable - as always! We've also made the cheesecakes with peanut butter cookie dough and chocolate drizzled on top (like a Reese's Peanute Butter cup).
