Happy Spring + Cinnamon Chip Scones

I didn't feel like I could welcome Spring when the temps were still in the 20's and we had snow in the 5 day forecast. However, after yesterday's BALMY 60 degrees, I am happy to say Spring has sprung in Menomonie and we are more than grateful. 
Here are some happenings over the last week:
 Lucy is rolling everywhere. We are currently in transistion mode from full swaddle to arms out. So far night one:
Lucy- 1
Sten and Erica- 0
After her going to bed screaming, then us moving her twice after she had weaseled herself to the way corner of the crib (screaming) we gave in and swaddled her back up and all slept through the night. Maybe we'll try again next week :)
Ashley and I made baked donuts after school last week. They were delicious and the best part was just hanging out!
Lucy is OBSESSED with this "edible" book from Pete's mom, Wendy. It's amazing.
THIS happened on Friday.
and THIS happened on Sunday! We had the best afternoon. We ran to the grocery then walked around downtown and took the lake front path home where we quickly put together a snack plate and enjoyed our first deck sit of the season. Lucy was lovin' it.

 Look at those teeth in there-- 2 of them!

On Friday when we got dumped with idk how much snow, I needed to bake something warm and cozy. Cinnamon Chip Scones it was! These were amazing!! I halved the recipe, and tweaked it a little, you can find the original recipe HERE.
