Puppet show

This year my girls and I made lots of puppets!

We made them for our cousins as a gift!
It was lots of fun to try them out before we sent them along to them.

cocoa 'n Sweet rolls

Instinctively I began to make Sweet rolls and cocoa when we got home from church today.
As I was rolling out the dough my mom called to tell us they were staying home to watch the Christmas Broadcast because of the snowy weather and didn't want us to feel left out when they had their hot cocoa and sweet rolls. But I was ready and I had my sweet rolls in process.
It was a small thing to remember the tradition. Today it was a natural act to do.
So, all six of us curled up on our bed and watched the Christmas Broadcast, listening to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir sing, and enjoying the Christmas messages given.
Then after we ate Sweet rolls, and drank hot cocoa.

Icy Raspberry Mousse
super yummy, requested and made by my 5 year old

something yummy!

We have a lot of eggs now that our chickens are laying. which make it fun to try recipes that call for lot and lots of eggs. Like this airy lemon food cake that I made the other day.
It was pretty fun to make in my new tube pan as well.
The lemon was just a hint and so my hubby tried some too.
Of course I loved every bite!
Yummy with strawberries and whipped cream.

Pink Pirates

What fun we all had!
Doesn't my girl look like a tough pirate there!
I still can't believe this cake turned out so well.
I am not a big cake decorator.
I did some fun pirate bandannas for all the guest
and some felt heart shaped eye patches.
I made the banner with fabrics I serged them all together.
Found the sparkly skulls at our dollar store that was a fun bonus.

Vintage 4th of July

We like to have a theme for our 4th of July festivities.
This year we decided a 30's look
with golf and homemade pie would be fun!
Homemade mini golf.... brilliant.
second hand quilts and linens for table cloths... gorgeous
folksie golf tee games and school slates with chalk... fun
Mmmm... yummy food!
Everyone saved room for pie!
We only wished we'd made more!!!!
I admit I love making pies.
I made two, a Strawberry pie
and a Raspberry 'n blueberry pie.
No leftovers.
Every year we put up canopies to shade us from the sun.
This year they also protected us from the rain.
The rain actually made it cozy and set a very romantic mood.
(until the drips went down your back LOL)
