Macarons

I finally tried making macarons! The process was a bit lengthy and tedious, but it was fun. I learned some good things and will try then again with a few tweaks next time. (They taste a little better after they've sat for a little while. I guess the flavors need time to become friends). My favorite thing about them is that they are just so darn cute!

Dad's Birthday

We had a big party for my Dad's 60th birthday!


























 So many of us were wearing purple! And we didn't even coordinate.

Much, much later...

And my quilt is DONE! Whew. Took me about a year to get that thing tied. I pinned the binding the same night as we (my aunt and mom and I) tied it and then I sewed it the night after.

Mom's Birthday

My mom's birthday was yesterday! We had a dinner and cake and ice cream with the family last night in celebration.
I'll let the pictures do the explaining.



For the birthday cake, I made a three-layer chocolate cake with a chocolate cream cheese/whipped cream/raspberry filling and a vanilla butter frosting.
