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!
