Wedding Bells!

My niece Olivia, 
 was married yesterday. Me, my daughter, and my daughter-in-law baked our faces off and put together a dessert table for her wedding.
There were mini cheesecakes, strawberry, lemon, carrot cake and chocolate mini cupcakes, oreo-peanutbutter-brownies, truffles, cake pops, chocolate dipped cookies, choc. chip cookies, cherry pie, strawberry/rhubarb pies, red velvet whoopie pies, choc. dipped pretzels, etc., etc.
There was so much that everyone took home lots of sweets  We also made the burlap banner for the table. Oh, and I also made her wedding cake, not pictured.

It was a hectic week leading up to the wedding day as I was sick for 6 days.  Thanks to my daughter and daughter-in-law for stepping up to the plate and getting a LOT of the baking done!

Congrats to Olivia and Andy, may you be eternally happy!!!

How was your weekend?

Weekends around here are always busy this time of the year.  There is a lot of yard work, grass that grows non-stop and then the greenhouse to tend to.  We don't put the plants into the ground until after the 1st of June due to frost issues.  We learned the hard way many years ago.  This weekend my son and his family got away to spend some time at the lake house and invited us to come over on Saturday evening for a cookout.  Gosh, it sure was chilly for the end of May and drizzling too but that didn't dampen (non intentional pun here!) the kids spirits!  There was plenty of fishing with Grandpa and both Sophie and Holden  caught a variety of fish.
I stayed on land for most part by the fire that my son built!

Best times are had when spent with family!
Hope your weekend was a good one!

My carving skills!

So, I got out my Exacto knife last night much to my husband's chagrin.  He still reminds me of a small "mishap" about 23 yrs. or so ago that ended with a trip to the hospital.  OooOPs, my bad! lol
I've had these dried birdhouse gourds for several years that I hung to dry in the barn and decided to finally do something with them.  Probably so I could justify to the hubby, growing them again this year.
I cut a round hole in each and today my Mr. drilled the wood and we hung them along the fence at my shop.
I love them, I hope they find some residents soon!

Should I, or shouldn't I?

I have found it difficult to keep blogging now that I'm on Facebook.  I do miss sharing stories and pictures and facebook is really so different.  I think blogging is akin to a public diary for me.  I will give it one more try.  One more push!  In the meantime today I will just share some of what I have created so far this spring.
May God bless your day!
