Wrist Corsage for Prom

Zack had Prom this weekend (more pictures later!!!) and instead of getting his date a wrist corsage that would wilt after an hour... WE MADE ONE! Her dress is black with white and I think that this will go well with it! We also included a clip that she can add on later to make it into a hair clip!

Let the SUN SHINE!!!

I am so glad that today is FINALLY SUNNY! I love spring with all of the new growth and flowers that it brings... I just need a little SUNSHINE in between all the storms!

News from Ben

Self portrait...
I guess it was easier than walking over to his companion and asking...
"Can you take a picture of me?"
This is a picture of Ben in his NEW Easter tie... notice the color!!!
This is a picture of their pet cockroach Gregory! EWWWW!!!
I guess that it was inevitable that one day Benjamin would reunite with the cockroaches...
While living in Knob Knoster, Missouri (While Russ was activated during Desert Storm) we lived in a trailer in the mouth of the Black Hills Forest (I'm not lying... I couldn't make that name up!). One of the fellow guardsmen told me of when her husband had a cockroach CLIMB INTO HIS EAR while he was sleeping and had to have it surgically removed!!!! Needless to say... I didn't sleep very well while in Missouri! I would have nightmares of one getting into Ben's ear! So all I can say is this... Ben, Sleep with ear muffs on!!! I will sleep better!
He has just transfered and hopefully there are NO cockroaches where he is at now! I KEEP TELLING MYSELF THIS!!!

And the winner is...

The M & M cake did TWICE as well as the Strawberry cake! I was very surprised! They were the first two things sold at the auction last night and I do think that if they would have been a little later... they might have gone for a little more... but, $22 and $4o isn't too bad! Meg's flowers and frame holder went for $30. (sorry, i forgot to take a picture! They were soooo cute too!)

Let them eat CAKE!!!

O.K. So I have to give credit where credit is due... I found this FABULOUS idea over HERE
I just LOVED her ideas! So we decided that we would try them out for our charity auction tonight! The kids are earning money for their summer camps!

Zack helped to decorate the strawberry one... there was a little left over of the sheet cake... so of course he had to make one for Jenica!

Brayden helped with the M & M/ Kit Kat Cake! I think that I would have to bid on his!
Megan is going to be making some flower pins!

Shayna thanks so much for the fun ideas! We are so excited to see how well the cakes do at the auction!

I am linking up with tatertots & jello this weekend! Go check out all the fun ideas!

Join us Saturdays at for the weekend wrap up party!
