Happy Birthday, Courtney! :D I'm going to my friend Courtney's birthday crop tonight. I'll be working on design team projects. Love having a straight 6 hours to work, girl talk, and eat pizza and chocolate.
I'm bringing the birthday dessert. :D (recipe below)
Look who has a new blog! I've added her to my list on the right. Her initials are RS. :) ~~~>
I just want to take a minute to tell my sweet Mom how important she is to our family! I don't think you'll find a better Grandma or Mom anywhere. She loves us and especially her cute grandkids more than anything and shows it all the time! She plays a major role in Noah's life and I'm so very thankful every day that she lives so close to us. Noah LOVES going over there because he knows he'll get spoiled :) I love you so much, Mom!
I'm off to pack and bake! Here is the dessert recipe...

"A grandma is warm hugs and sweet memories. She remembers all of your accomplishments and forgets all of your mistakes. She is someone you can tell your secrets and worries to, and she hopes and prays that all your dreams come true. She always loves you, no matter what. She can see past temper tantrums and bad moods, and makes it clear that they don't affect how precious you are to her. She is an encouraging word and a tender touch. She is full of proud smiles. She is the one person in the world who loves you with all her heart, who remembers the child you were and cherishes the person you've become." ~ Barbara Cage
