Week In Pics

From Brianna's birthday party (finally...and my camera is having some battery killing issues) to mine...it has been a week filled with blessings (well, a little over a week).

Do you see the beautiful apron Pam made me??? (Don't look at me...you're lucky I just got over myself and allowed these to even be posted ;) )You can get a better look at the tatting (the lace) she did by hand on her site. I LOVE it :)

I made a sand-castle cake from rice crispie treats ;) I used brown sugar for the "sand" and cones for the spires. The blue icing was supposed to be like the water ;) I wasn't super pleased with it, but it did taste good and Brianna loved it.

As for my cake, that Brian surprised me with on the way home, Brian missed the moment of me actually blowing out the candle...so I had to "pretend" which felt pretty ridiculous. Look at Brianna and Lily "helping" me
keep my lips pursed hahahaha...




















After cake...ahem, which I will *pay* for later ;) It was aqua girl and aqua boy to the rescue :) Have a wonderful weekend!

I LOVE the castle 'cake'.. you did a great job on it! The apron looks so much better on you than it did on me when I tried it on. I'm glad you like it!

Deby,thank you so much for the kind words...didn't Pam do a fabulous job?!

Cherlyn..I'm getting excited for that new little one who is soon to arrive!

Kristi :) Hi! Thank you for the compliment...what's funny is, by the time we actually got to cake time, it looked more like castle ruins! The kids had so picked at it (we had a big turn out too, but still only HALF the turn out for Justins'...wow, what a crowd!-what a blessing)

I did see that apron on Pam's site! Beautiful. Happy birthday...again? It feels like I've said that recently to you--surely time is not flying THAT fast. ;)

That little boy of yours...wow!...it takes my breath away to see how big he is getting. And how much he is looking just. like. your. husband. Uncanny.
