Send In The Clowns

Text: This was my first attempt at creating a clown after my Wilton decorating class. The recipe had some changes and the consistency was too soft, but the end result was okay.

::::::::::::::::::Family Reading Time:::::::

The boys were a bit annoyed with me for going from one princess book to another, but I believe the new book has earned their interest. Aaron was disappointed that I had to stop reading due to the lateness of the hour last night. The story is well crafted and the characters and imagery are superb.

Shabby Miss Jenn made some really cool quick pages for the Shutterfly blog. Here is a sample:

New book for me:
This is a book recommended by my friend, Kim, and she has excellent taste in books!

Smiles...I'm off to Girl Scouts with Rachel!

That's a cake? Oh my gosh, I wouldn't want to cut it. Victoria, it's terrific!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My teeth are almost aching in agony at the thought of how sweet that icing would be.

Eve has just the most beautiful face and look in her eyes in that page. Gorgeous.

Victoria, that is a fabulous cake! You must be having such a good time in the Cake Art class. Whoo Hoo.
More good book reviews, I wish I could be there when you read to the "practically perfect" children. Eve does have a sweet and lovely face and those eyes!!!

Did you finish "A Crooked Kind of Perfect", yet? I adored that little book. Oh, and I love "Goose Girl", too. I'm reading "Rules" with my 5th grade book club. Have you read that one? It's a keeper. It could be in the same literature unit as "Al Capone Does My Shirts."
