Green with envy

A quick update on a couple of cakes I did this last month. Oddly enough both centered around the color green.
This one was a spring green cake with white satin ribbon, white scrollwork, and white draperies, with coordinating flowers. (fresh of course)

This one was a porcelein white base with green satin ribbon, and cream scrollwork, handpainted with gold luster dust for an aged look.

I really liked how they both turned out.
Well, back to life. I am shopping and doing food for the baptism tomorrow, and of course raspberries went on sale the day I had a ton to do, so the yearly stockpile of Jam is being put up today.
For anyone who is interested, the springville Reams has cases of raspberries for $10. WOW!!!

Please Come!

Another month has flown by, and I have been enjoying my relatively "unplugged" status. Posts on my blog have been relatively few and far between as we have attended
orchestra concerts, piano recitals, dance festivals, carnival, and all the other exciting and busy events that herald the end of the school year.

And so here we are again. The school year is over. Desks have been cleaned out, and their contents strewn about my just-cleaned laundry room, backpacks thrown into the corner with a heavy sigh of relief, and we are all feeling a sense of exhilaration.
No more lunches to make every morning, no more tearful evenings agonizing over 4th grade homework and missing assignments. Our days can settle into a lazier succession of trips to the pool, late night movies, library trips, evenings spent outside, and warm weather picnics

Oh, and did I forget to mention whining, Otter pop wrappers, "I'm bored", Otter Pop wrappers, chores, and oh yes, Otter Pop wrappers.
It's going to be grand.
So come on over, pull up a chair, and enjoy the relaxing sounds of summer.
Take your pick,
Crickets or Crying.
And by the way, please come to Ryders Baptism on Saturday if you can.
Can you believe he's gotten so big?
