Chorus Concert

Maddie had her first (and apparently only) choir concert last Thursday night.  She never mentioned that it was happening, and we only found out about it when they sent home a "reminder letter" the day of.  Against all odds we happened to have that night free - thank goodness, so we loaded up the fam and watched Madelyn go from

super excited:

to a little bit bored:

to wasted:

At the end she explained that she didn't know it would be so long (30 minutes to be exact) and wished she had eaten a bigger dinner.  Guess it took everything out of her!  It WAS darling though.  Now Maddie and I can sing "Seize the Day" from Newsies while cleaning the house together.  It hasn't happened yet, but I'm sure it's in the the works.

BDEM:  We really lazied it up today.  Lazied it up and made ridiculous amounts of food:  cinnamon rolls, homemade salsa, teriyaki chicken with coconut rice, grilled pineapple, and chocolate chip cookies. To say my stomach is sick is the understatement of the year - but I think I finally made the cinnamon roll of my dreams.  Most of the homemade cinnamon rolls I've made leave me feeling like something is missing. They're good - but just a waste of time compared to a Cinnabon. But last night I worked up a new recipe, and it was rich and divine, and I was mighty proud of myself.  

Water:  40 oz

Any chance you're going to share that cinnamon roll recipe? And maybe the chocolate chip cookie one, while you're at it?
