thanks to my two wonderful older daughters...(and the fact that they were out of school yesterday in honor of veteran's day)...the final preparations for ella's party on saturday are coming together.
although all of the baked goods are coming from sweet things emporium, i decided to go ahead and make mini sugar cookies to help tie in all of the birthday colors...as a "final touch", so-to-speak.
so, clara made the dough and then both her & em worked on rolling it out and cutting out the cookies. they did a fantabulous job! seriously. all i had to do was bake the cookies!
along with the cookies, the girls and i finished assembling the cupcake boxes, picked up the table i'm borrowing from my mom, sealed the cake topper and did a "mock set-up" of the table. i also washed all of the "vessels" ( i feel so "amy atlas-ish" when i use that word..."vessel"). *smirking*
now...i'm off to collect more fabric, ribbon, meringue powder, food coloring, tissue paper, wooden dowels and an apron.
it's coming together so nicely. i'm really excited.
more importantly, i'm "enjoying the process".
i MUST give some props to the in-laws who flew in on tuesday. they took little ella scarlet for the entire day yesterday and she's with them again today. NICE. it's amazing how much more i can get done. *wink*
love and cyber hugs to all of you...
