Virtual Open House

This afternoon is my Close To My Heart Dessert Open House to showcase the new Fall/Winter Idea Book and new products. (Drop in from 3:00 to 8:00!) Here are some of the projects I've been working on in preparation for the big event.

How many licks does it take...

to get to the center of the Tootsie Roll Pop? (Remember those commercials?!?)

Our puppy Shadow found this pop and had to crunch down to the center too! Bad dog. LOL

Or is it bad mommie? I couldn't resist snapping a few shots before taking it away from him!

Life has been too busy to post, but things are going well. School is off to a great start for all 3 of us girls. (Week 4 just finished!) They love their teachers and have plenty of friends, plus the school work isn't too bad either. (I LOVE having Miss A in 5th grade! She gives me hugs when she sees me. I know that probably won't last all year, so I will enjoy it while I can.)

Our dance classes have started back up, and M may even take two this year: the tap/jazz combo she's started and the tumbling class she wants to add. My adult tap class has doubled in size, so that is very exciting. Looks like our recital number didn't totally scare people off.

L's had quite a few generator jobs, so that is wonderful progress. All in all, life is good!

My sweet baby nephew was baptized on Sunday, and I am lucky enough to be this adorable little fellow's Godmother (as well as his big brother's). Don't you love his beautiful gown? His mommy bought it when she was in Belgium and pregnant w/big brother.

I told the girls that no, I was not his "fairy" godmother. Miss A wanted to
know if she was now his godsister. Absolutely!

We were privileged to have our dear family friend, Father Wise, perform the baptism. He performed both my sister's wedding and ours, along with our then-priest (and also dear friend) Father Maddox.
