I just lovethis page I just scrapped of Charlotte. See the cupcakes I stuck in there? The kit is cherry-themed, but love those little cupcakes!
Anyway, I had so much fun following along (as I assume others did too!) the baking get-together of The Pioneer Woman and Bakerella. Gwen's 3rd birthday is coming up, and I've been trying to think about what goodies to make. We are not doing a big party for her, just a family get-together. So I am wondering if I can get my act together to try some of those cake pops that they made, it looks so fun! And also do some plain old cupcakes, just to feed the hungry hordes, so to speak.
This is sort of a pointless post, but I couldn't think of a cohesive theme other than cupcakes. Which are sweet. And here are some sweet things that have happened recently...
-Gwendolyn potty learning... BUT if she's tired, then she totally forgets about it. Boo hoo for me, more laundry. But she is having lots of successes!
-Visiting Pullen Park on the first day of spring... it was chilly a bit, but we had fun planting some seeds, having a picnic, playing and letting the girls ride the boats and carosel. Then heading over to feed the ducks at the lake... Funny moment- I was going to take Gwen to potty after feeding the ducks, but unfortunately, as she was crouching on a picnic table bench, she had a little accident... one of the moms noticed as it ran down the bench... oops! Theme: Gwen fell asleep within minutes of leaving the park... so tired Gwen, crouching Gwen means accident-prone Gwen.
-Watching our pea plants grow. Need to post some pictures!
-Learning about birds with Charlotte, then watching her draw a bird and label it.
-Gwendolyn counting how old she is... putting 2 fingers up, then carefully adding the 3rd finger.
-Listening to J and Charlotte's voices murmuring... J usually tries to spend some time with Charlotte, playing a game or something like that, on Saturday.
-Deciding on a kitchen paint color. On the wall- "Ambience", a creamy, slightly-yellow but not too yellow, white...
-Experiements in breadmaking... trying a "soaked" bread recipe in my bread machine
-Finding a picture of J and Gwendolyn on our church's updated website. Guess we have to join now!
Okay, enough rambling. But isn't that what Saturdays are all about? Just sort of "rambling" through your day? Oh, well, theoretically, I am supposed to be productive... never quite get everything done, but that's OK I still love Saturdays.
