Home Stretch!

Only 7 weeks of school left! Time to pull together all the projects at school we've started, plan my final field trips, end of year celebrations, track meets(and practices), field trips for my boys, fundraisers (to send 7&8 grades to Wa DC next spring), birthdays, one family reunion (including soup, bread, muffins and cookies to make ahead to bring), and all the day-to-day. All great stuff!! Here I go sprinting toward June 11!!!

200 Cupcakes

Attended a precious wedding last night. The bride was absolutely stunning! The evening was full of sincerity and love from family and friends of bride and groom! Congratulations Danica & Eli!!
This is my contribution. 200 cupcakes!

My good, good friend Shalisa baked half and taught me how to use the decorator bag. She also helped me decorate them. all of them. (Thank you!) It was a little all consuming and I'm glad to be done, but I think I'd do it again. Later. Like in a year.(Amy?)

The table was impressive covered in a mass of cupcakes-the gaps are where people already started eating them (before dinner!)! The room smelled delicious and my house still smells a little chocolaty.

Another generous blogger!

My computer is back! And I've lost all the pictures and documents that were saved on it BUT I've learned a valuable lesson about backing up! It is nice to be up & running again,, to pick right up--
This is the completely adorable house softie I won from LaBelle Avenue. She makes lovely things and is really worth a cruise around! Thank you LaBelle I love him! Someday I'll actually make a house quilt! I must have a dozen patterns saved--I love house quilts!
