|Bun Bun's dress is done! From the front...|
|...from the back...|
|...and at last with beaded flowers.|

I also put together the treat bags - filled with the chocolate lollipops we made...
Today was cake day! Rowan wanted plain white cake - we made one large sheet cake and used various sized bowls to trace the circles we wanted with a knife. And at the end, Rowan decided she wanted a 4th tier on top to make it taller. The little top tier is only about 2 inches across!
Next, I thinned some frosting into a glaze and did a light coat on the crumbly sides then stuck them in the fridge to set (thank you, Tabby, for that wonderful tip!)
I did my best to decorate it exactly as Rowan had envisioned - little pink flowers and green squiggles. She chose an orchid to place on top and is putting her finishing touch on the cake here.
Ta da! Pretty stinkin' cute, people!
After Bun-Bun's dress was done, I had time to finish the latest Afghan sweater and get it blocked, and although I have started another one my interest is starting to wane a bit. Time for a different project, methinks. After seeing photos of my mom's latest lacy scarf projects, I might have to do something light and delicate for a change of pace.
Brynn's final day at her Day Out program was today - the kids assembled to give us a little choral show at 1:30. Bless her heart, Brynn couldn't really sing along or stand in line like the other kids, but she was fascinated by the entire process!
And oh dear, the banging has just begun right over where she's napping! Our roofers showed up today, and the new roof is finally emerging. Here's a peek at the state of our back deck right now.
I turned Brynn's white-noise maker on high this afternoon in hopes she might sleep through it...keep your fingers crossed for me!
