Today is Duke’s 2nd birthday!! Can you believe it?! On one hand I can’t believe he’s already two, and on the other hand I can’t believe he’s ONLY two. I pretty much feel like he’s always been a part of our little family. He definitely has his own quirks and has totally debunked my previously held notion tha [...]

Change up the colors and use them for baby showers, birthdays and other holidays. I used an ice cream cone cookie cutter to make the pennants and then just chopped off the ice cream part. Kinda sad. Looking back now, m [...]

Red, White & Blue Layered Finger ...

Thumbnail for 4777
When I was a kid, one of my all-time favorite treats was Knox blocks. They typically appeared at summer parties, and there was something so fun about picking up a dense square of Jello and eating it with your fingers instead of needing a bowl and a spoon. Through the years, the name “Knox blocks” phased out and those treats became [...]

Sunday Sweets: Rainbow Connection

Thumbnail for 4775
Why are there so many songs…   ...about rainbows?   And what’s on the other side?   Rainbows are visions, but only illusions, and rainbows have nothing to hide.   So we’ve been told and some choose to believe it.   I know they’re wrong, wait and see.   Someday we’ll find [...]

Some of my favorite submissions this week:   They asked for mountains: And never has “Good Luck” looked quite so sarcastic.   Tessa tells me this wedding cake was supposed to look like bark: Bark, huh? Well, it DOES look pretty “ruff.” Eh? EH? Oh, who asked you.   Guess where they wanted the 10: &# [...]

Everyone’s going nuts this week about the baby shower cake with bear vaginas on it. Not bare vaginas, mind you; BEAR vaginas: See?   ENHANCE!
