can get into a whole heap of trouble together. Did I mention Addie is a month OLDER than Liam? He's a monster!! I had 5 kids one day last week! Well only 4 about half the time as Max was at school...but I have to admit that it's true what they say... after you go from two to three, anything after that is like piece of cake...or something like that. {Megan you TOLD ME SO!} And so with 4 kids 3 and under I made bread.

Look. I've never been much of an artist, but for my first attempt at baguettes I think they look cool{ish}. While my dough rested and rose this was going on...

Evan was in charge since Max was still at school and the younger three soaked up every ounce of energy Evan had to offer. They were pretty fun to watch at ages 3, 2,1, and 11 months.

It was quite the afternoon of children...and bread....oh, and pumpkin muffins.

This bread is SO easy and I highly recommend the book I got the recipe from.

DOUGH: Simple, Contemporary Bread {by, Richard Bertinet}

I'm TELLING you, if I can do it, you can too.

It is so incredibly easy and even I, yes lil' ol' me can make some tasty, yummy, and {sometimes} stellar looking bread.

It's good stuff.

Ok, a) you go girl! and b) I think you should've included a third muffin in that shot because immature children like me conjure up images of certain female anatomy otherwise, LOl!!! (Go ahead and delete this comment off your famiyl blog, I totally understand.) ;)

I want the supple muffin recipe... (sorry, couldn't resist.) That icing looks SOOOO good my mouth is watering... looks like it has cinnamon in it, or something?

HAHAHA!! I love the bread, looks so yummy. And the muffins sound divine. But really, isnt anything with some cream cheese frosting?

I've been making lots of bread too. I've been making stuff from the book "Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day" and last night made some really easy popovers to go with some soup. I love carbs!
