I can't believe it has been so long since my last post. Time is certainly flying over at our house! Doesn't everyone feel that way??? Three kids in sports is keeping me running five days a week. Then, if you add in the games on Saturday...enough said, right? However, my kids are so happy...so if they are happy, I am happy.
Wanted to share some recent craft activity that I have been able to throw in here and there.
You know I am in a cake decorating class, right??? Have I mentioned that??? Here is last weeks cake. (HOLD the comments on the clowns. I really dislike clowns too, but it was the assignment!)
After I took this photo, I dumped the cake in the trash. My kids don't really like cake, and there is no need for it to sit around, jump into my mouth and land onto my thighs. Smart choice, if you ask me. (Not to mention that the cat in the photo took a lick. GROSS!)
As you may, or may not recall, I am in charge of Hospitality and Teacher Appreciation at our school. Every month I am to leave a goodie or surprise in the teacher's boxes. This is what they are getting today:
Cake balls!!! I tried to dip them in the orange first, as I wanted them to look like pumpkins. I don't know what I did wrong, but it was not working out. So, I changed my plans and decided to just dip them in chocolate and drizzle them with the orange. Still cute...pumpkins would have been cuter. Must practice this again for another time. I am determined to get it right!
I always give my younger kids teachers a Fall gift. (Usually a cinnamon smelling candle) Yesterday I painted the bags that they will be going in...
