Each person should judge his own actions and not compare himself with others. Then he can be proud for what he himself has done. Galatians 6:4

I'm still helping my MIL out at her house.. Tomorrow is the Big Day for their yardsale to start. All the Proceeds will go to their church food pantry. They are getting prepared for the many people who will have to chose between eating and heating. This is so sad.

My Son's BaseBall Team Won their Championship game!! Not bad for a team that was doing very poorly in the beginning of the season! Each team has a sponsor and for the past 7 years I have never heard from the Sponsors.. other than their names on our T-Shirts. This year the sponsor called hubby and wanted to offer the kids a gift.. WOW!! That was so nice.. But he wasn't sure what to get the kids... Hubby says "My wife is good at that.. so let her think a few minutes"... The Sponsor said.. "Well come down and I'll give you XX amount of $$'s and you can put them together"... So I did... Can you believe I could NOT find ONE box of Cracker Jacks!! NOT ONE!! So instead I put together a water bottle, sunflowerseeds, Big Chew Gum, and a Gift Card to Olympia!! What a great gift for unsuspecting kiddos!





This past weekend I had TWO Graduation Parties to go to... One of the Graduates wanted me to make her the butterfly cupcakes... I declined... I really didn't have much time.. and I really did NOT enjoy making them.. So I scoured the internet for something different... and I found these.. There were several different versions of them.. so I kind of altered mine a tad bit.. but can't take credit for the original... I thought she might be upset because they were NOT as elaborate as the Butterfly cupcakes.. but she was HAPPY with them.. ( or she at least acted that way.. LOL LOL)
They just little peanut butter cups with squares of Hershey's chocolate, mini bakers M&M's and I piped the tassle on because cutting twizzlers was not in the time crunch... I made the cupcakes and buttercream frosting... she was more excited that it was MY frosting than anything else!




What I've been reading...
Between Sundays .. Ok.. I am NOT a Karen Kingsbury Fan.. NORMALLY .. This book was REALLY GOOD!Some of it.. I think .. a little unrealistic.. but a good story. I was REALLY shocked at the end.. the twist that the Author Chose and I'm sure you will be too if you read it.

My Fun book to read.. Hungry Girl. Great tips on eating better... places to buy things... and just eating better.. If you don't know them.. check them out on Hungry-Girl.com



What I have just started. I heard rave reviews about this book.. I am in Chapter 3 and so far it's ok... I will give it more time before I give you my full thoughts on it...

I love the idea for the graduation cupcakes. That's pretty neat. I will have to remember that when I throw Jay a party when he's done with college. :)

Funny thing. Jay actually got that book "The Shack" for free, on his trip to meet Ted Dekker. It actually sounds pretty good and I plan to read it as soon as I am done with all of the Ted Dekker books we now own. (gifts for Jay for b-days and Christmas)

Erin said...

i LOVE those cupcakes!!

Tanja said...

I'm aghast! Yes. Aghast. That you are not a Kingsbury fan. :-) I gobble up anything she puts out. I started The Shack a few weeks back. I read the good reviews, too. I'm in chapter 7 and I put it down. Maybe for good, maybe not. It's not my fave. Let me know if you finish it. Those cupcakes are too cool. You have a gift.
