A nice calm week this meal plan, so I am going to do some extra planning for Easter next weekend. Besides making the yogurt & bread- I plan on making extra noodles to set aside for Easter plus I might make some Cadbury cream egg cookies, orange cookies and well you never know what I possibly might add on! 

Plus we have a birthday party on Sunday April 1st. 

Soo I started on making the birthday girl a tri-fold princess card and paper princess dolls and cover...Found an ingenious Blog Called MAKES AND TAKES and the author makes a magnetic paper doll set on a cookie sheet pan with a handmade cover I all ready started to make the paper doll and some dresses from my ONCE UPON A PRINCESS Cricut Cartridge plus I will see what magnet sheets I have left and if I have enough I will add on some other icons from the cartridge like a unicorn, clouds and rainbows, castle, that sort of thing...I will post the project once I complete it, even Kissi designed an envelope for her special friend, funny to see her get into crafting like her momma!! :-)

LOTS of extras to accomplish.
