The foot prints were a success. The hand print (I'm not gonna sugar coat it) was mediocre. Have YOU ever tried to get a baby's hands unclasped from a fist in order to make a print? Good luck with that. I'll stick to feet, thank you.
In other domestic news, I am back to cooking. We've been beyond grateful to all of our friends and family that brought meals over the last 6 weeks. We have literally been eating everyone's kind gestures the entire time.

Toss the onions with 1/8 pound butter, 1/4 cup canola oil and 1 tablespoon salt. Stir the onions every 15 minutes for about 2 to 3 hours until the onions are caramel in color and sweet in taste.
