E-day

I have a terrible habit of getting migraines on holidays.
I really ought to knock that off.

But because of this bad habit, there aren't many photos from our Easter.

Table set in our living room/music room/library/study/playroom
There may or may not have been some dirty dishes......


I had a whole series of mishaps making this cheesecake. This included buying marzipan and opening it to find it rock hard. Luckily the cheesecake was still edible. If I were to do it again I would grate the carrot much finer, NOT use a springform pan, and place a towel in the bottom of the waterbath to prevent splashing.....
and not buy rock-hard marzipan.

The Captain has a way of reminding me of his brother.
And the bathtub markers that found their way into Sir O's Easter basket are my new favorite thing ever. He stays occupied for looooong stretches of time (for now).

Haha. I just finished my enormous amount of dishes piling up from this weekend of yummy feasts.

Sorry you had a migraine. :( If it makes you feel any better, I get my monthly visitor EVERY time I go on vacation somewhere or on holidays. Ugh. Disneyland on my birthday this year, Disneyworld a few Christmases ago, Hollywood for taping of American Idol last month. Right now during Easter and during our family swim party tonight. And I get really sick during them.

Thanks for posting that cheesecake recipe. It sounds so yummy.

I hope you are feeling better.

Oh and I stole that video of President Holland's talk and put it on my blog. It's awesome.

Wow, even with a migraine you impress me! That cheesecake looks delicious. Nice job! P.S. Sorry about your ebay outfit, can't wait to see it!

That cheesecake looks great! And I love the table setting. You always do the cutest things!

You are amazing. I never decorate my table for holidays. It looks wonderful. I've never tried to make cheesecake before. It sounds complicated.

wow wow wow! Cheesecake= don't think I'll ever try that (especially if I have a baby under the age of 5 years old). Table decorations= don't think I'll ever try that either! (for the same reason again!)
You are just amazing!

I loved your table!Looked so pretty and springy with the yellow! And I really want to eat some of that cake. Migraines are horrible. I'm sure the fact that your are not getting good sleep makes them even worse. I'm counting my lucky stars that I'm not really getting any with this pregnancy so far. Anyways,I think you are amazing.Those boys are lucky to have you.

Marzipan cheesecake!?! Any leftovers?
I L-O-V-E marzipan, but don't get it very often. I had a marzipan cake made special for my 40th birthday to share with coworkers at work. I won't belabor just how long ago that was.
