There's an amazing excitement, spirit, and energy in the air, as the spring season has began to blossom so beautifully :) This morning, we had a wonderful new day rising and shining, as the sun was rising up, the birds were singing happily :) i love those sweet nature tunes, especially during spring time :) i love the blue sky, and i feel so solar energized by the sun :) i got a great early start to the day, i was pumped up and excited! :) This morning, i wished my family and friends a happy baking friday, and i shared with my family, all of your sweet happy baking friday wishes :) Thank you everyone, so very much! :) You all are so nice, and sweet :) it was a sweet morning, i gathered a nice big bowl of goodies, breads, for our nature animal friends, and i went outside for my early morning nature walk :) as i was putting the goodies around our yard, i saw 5 geese soaring over our neighborhood! :) wow! :) it was a spectacular nature sight! :) our nature friends love their baking friday breakfast feast! :) they were gathering goodies :) as the day continued to blossom beautifully, i began to get ready to decorate our kitchen ,with a sweet spring theme, with the festive spirit of spring season :) it's so much fun, decorating the kitchen, making it glow with baking friday excitement :) each week, we love to use our nice baking friday supplies, we have recieved over the years from family and friends :) our nice aprons, oven mits, kitchen towels, and lots more :) These special supplies are always a great part of our cooking and baking each week :) Our kitchen looked awesome, and i prepared a nice lunch, baked sweet potato, regular potato, and vegetable soup :)
During the early afternoon, i enjoyed a nice hour long nature walk, and also spent some time here on ds, writing to friends :) Alyssa and the triplets came over, 2 of the triplets fell asleep on the couch. Shortly before 3pm, i went out into our kitchen to put the finishing touches on our kitchen preparations ,for our super fun adventure :) i got our George Foreman grill on the counter, i also got some water heating up in a cooking pot on the stove, for the pretzels :) Kayla and Taylynn arrived home from school, and Jenn, Mikey, and Hunter came over :) Mikey said, "it's baking friday!" :) awww! :) one of the triplets, Colby was up, and he was also so excited to bake goodies, and to help grill hotdogs :) we were all gathered around ,lots of great spring time ,baking friday excitement in the air :) Our kitchen was all set, and we were all set, and ready to bake :) We got our picture taken in the kitchen :) calling all cookie monsters! :) cookie monsters unite!!! :) it's time to bake! bake! bake! :)
We began our super fun adventure! :) we first began by preparing the homemade pretzels :) the recipe is one of our favorites :) We added the water, yeast packet, and also some salt into the bowl, we super stirred it, and then began to add in the flour :) the kids love to help add the ingredients :) Mikey and Colby each got to add, 2 cups of flour to the bowl :) they're very proud to help :) Kayla and i have been teaching the kids a lot about baking, they're learning a lot :) We're so proud of them! :) We love to encourage them with hi-5's! and we call them cool dudes! :) awww! :) i remember it like it was yesterday, when Kayla and Taylynn were much younger, and learning to bake, and now Mikey and the triplets are learning a lot about baking :) baking friday teamwork! :)
When the pretzel dough was ready, i cut the dough into portions, and we all began to make the nice pretzels shapes on the counter :) i used a metal spatual spoon to put the pretzels into the boiling water on the stove, the nice water boil helps the pretzels get bigger :) i used some butter to grease the baking pan, and in a bowl, i melted butter with garlic powder :) We were having so much fun baking, preparing the pretzels, sharing lots of smiles :) You all are always right there with us in spirit in the kitchen :) we drizzled melted butter with the garlic bread, and some sea-salt on top of the pretzels, and i then put the pretzels into the oven to bake! :) As the pretzels were baking, it was time to grill some hotdogs! :)
Chillin and Grillin! :) we love our George Foreman grill :) i've had it since 2005, it's awesome! :) i had the grill on the back of the counter :) i put some hotdogs on the grill, and used some tongs to turn the hotdogs :) The other 2 triplets, Jacob and Brayden woke up, and were coming out into the kitchen to check in on the baking friday fun :) The hotdogs grilled nicely, we had some hotdog buns, and the pretzels baked for a good 20 minute,s they came out awesome too! :) the kids had a hotdog, and we even shaped some with our pups :) i had a hotdog, with ketchup, yum! :) we love grilling season, spring time is here :) We did some cleaning up in the kitchen, and i thanked Kayla and the kids for helping :)

Yum! You always make me so hungry on Fridays. I love this family tradition. And as always, you look so handsome. I\'ve just caught up on your posts & I\'m so glad Spring has re-sprung for you. It\'s definitely Spring here. Everything is in beautiful bloom, but the windy weekend is blowing my pretty pink blossoms into my fountain! The weather is supposed to reach the high 70\'s this weekend and my back will say woohoo! Enjoy, sweet spirit. Love & Hugs from Karen
