Mother's Day sweeties

They have grown so much this past year. These were just quick snaps before we left for town. It was overcast and started raining just after I took the pics.

A Tasty Rainbow

My girl turned 4 back in February but we finally had time to have her birthday party today. She did have a mini one a few weeks ago but not with friends.

I took 2 regular french vanilla cake mixes and mixed them according to directions. We then divided the mixture into 6 bowls and mixed colors to build a rainbow.

Here we used a pyrex casserole dish to make the top part of the hat. We started with the red at the bottom.

We layered the rectangular pan like a rainbow would look.

The rectangular cake out of the oven and ready for carving. Now I know why I usually don't cheat and use a box cake. They may taste good but are soooooo crumbly and don't stay held together when you try to cut them into a shape.
An attempt at making Strawberry Shortcake's hat. My girl loved it and that is what counts.
Destruction of a rainbow.

A close up or two

Just a way to pass the dreary and stormy day we are having. These were just taken in the living room chair in front a big window.

Christmas a bit early

I know I know it is a bit early but the kids were super excited this year to start our decorating. I only have a few more weekends with them before Christmas so why not.

Taking advantage of the unusual weather

Since we are not bundled up in snowsuits and boots yet I took my girl out last weekend for a mini shoot, with two outfits. She so does not like having her picture taken right now.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

but sadly it is only the middle of October. This is just a quick snap I took off my back step while making supper.

The beauty of fall

I was bored last night so I grabbed my camera (50 mm lens) and went for a walk. I am just loving this weather and am blessed with beautiful scenery all around me. Now if we could just get rid of the mosquitos all would be good.
This is the field adjoining my yard.
Our leaves are not totally red and yellow yet. I played with the saturation and colors in the picture to make them pop more.
