We're livin' it up on the U.P. - that's Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Punkie is 6 and LOVED Kindergarten! Isaboo is 2 and she's a smiley whirl wind. We also call her Busy-Isi. This year we welcomed little Lorenzo to our family.

Life is great!

Mother's Day

Well, the day before Mother's Day it was the Post Office's food drive. 
Marley was nowhere to be found so I sent our pink poodle out to put the food under the mail box.
 Okay, our pink poodle IS Marley. 
This is a 2T costume PEOPLE!!!

It was given to her by her cousin Kelsey, when Marley was 2-ish. 
I'm always trying to hide it, now that it is too small, but she always seems to find it. 
She snoops around A LOT!!!

The poodle likes to wear my scarf sometimes. 
Have you seen The Lorax? Or read the book? I've never read the book, but I've seen the movie.
This scarf is just like a Thneed. 
So soft and fun to play with.
 I really need to get a picture of the Pink Poodle with her Purple Parasol. 
You will die!
So funny!
 I should also try to get a picture of the colossal wedgie this costume gives her. 
Hilarious!

ANYWAY
It snowed Saturday afternoon and ALL. DAY. MOTHER'S DAY.
BOOOOO!!!!!
 I mean. REALLY!?!?
May 12th?!?
 It's okay though because I got a beautiful bouquet of FRESH FLOWERS!!!

 Here is the baker.
 The frosting maker.
 The Decoratour...I'm trying to sound fancy.

 More snow.
 The Fresh Bouquet!




 Aren't they gorgeous?!?
The blue ones are my favorite. 
Those are little marshmallows cut in half and then dipped in blue raspberry sprinkles. 
They looked beautiful, smelled SO yummy and tasted DELICIOUS!

 The eater helper.
 Of course all she wanted was a pink rose.

It was a wonderful day.
Would have loved to take a walk in the hot sun....but, these cupcakes totally made up for it!

PS- I love you mom!!! It was great to skype with you!
