Blackberry Scones

I've experimented with several different scone recipes and found one I liked on all recipes here. But I decided to buy Williams Sonoma's Garvey's Traditional Scone mix this time around. They were very delicious and more moist than the all recipes one. You can find the mix at your local Williams Sonoma store or online here. I added blackberries to my scones. They turned out so yummy and they go perfectly with a cup of black tea.

Monkeying around

Today is a rainy Saturday and the kids were getting a little restless so we decided to just go bananas!! Ha! I thought it would be fun to have a 'Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed' themed morning. We started off by reading the book and then we watched the song below. I also found a page for Emma to color here. We made some banana pudding (which Luke really enjoyed) =), played her 5 Monkeys board game, made Curious George face masks here and read some more books. I think it was a success. Now it's nap time.....ahhhhhhh. : )
