So rather than writing a long blog, writing, or researching for future books while Mags was at work. Instead, I visited with my husband in the kitchen while I sketched with a toothpick on white frosting so I could bring Elmo to life on top of the cake. I took a couple cake decorating classes, "back in the day", with my cousin Missy. We had fun and learned a lot. It was great to use and revisit these skills.
Looking forward to seeing family and watching the one-year old dig in.
For now, we are off to the Relay for Life. I posted pictures of the cakes and a video from this morning.
My friends Stacy and Mary are known for saying, "Children don't go missing just on sunny days."
As I watched the clouds roll in, the wind pick up, and the rain start this morning I thought about this evening's Relay for Life events happening tonight. People don't only get cancer when it's sunny either so we are still going to walk some laps at the track and support this great cause.
