Scare Crow Display

I saw this at Michael's and thought it would be fun to have. The original price was $119.00. Then it went on sale for $71.99. I just couldn't justify spending that much money on a decoration that would only be on display for two months. So.....

by waiting for everything to go on sale and using 40% and 50% coupons, I managed to buy all the items needed to make the display and only spent $35.00. I must say I like my version better than their's. It looks so cute in my kitchen.

Is That White I See?

Today is September 17th. Yes. what you see is snow. This is the earliest it has snowed that I can remember.
Aiden was so excited when he saw the snow. He found gardening gloves and his red hat. So I got him dressed and wouldn't you know it, he has to go to the bathroom. I can remember getting all the kids dressed and of course someone would have to use the bathroom. Well I got him redressed and outside he ventured. The first thing he asked was how do you catch snow. I told him to stick out his tongue.

He really did catch some snow. But he figured it was easier to get a taste of snow by just eating it. The garden gloves are stained but clean so he got clean snow. The first snowfall is the tastiest.

This is the patio table. I couldn't resist writing in the snow. The snow was quite unexpected. It lasted most of the day.

Even though I hate to see snow so early, I really was expecting an Indian Summer, Aiden and I enjoyed the first snow fall of the year. What ever happened to global warming? I feel more like we are entering an Ice Age.

Mckenzie and Doug's Wedding

This wedding was the son of one of Jerry's installers. The wedding took place at Fairmont Hotsprings. What a great place to have a wedding. We were invited to the wedding and I cut the cake. It was fun to be at the wedding and see the bride and groom's expression when they saw the cake.
This is the top of the cake. When Mckenzie and I talked she told me her colors and I told her I would make a flower topper for her cake. When we arrived at the wedding I saw the bridemaids' flowers and they were almost identical. The only difference was that they had a few white daisies among the puple and green flowers.

This is Mckenzie and Doug cutting their cake. I had to tell Mckenzie that it was okay to cut the cake because she said if she cut it she would ruin it. Well she cut into it and all went well. They each did the traditional feeding of the cake to each other.

Cake on receiption table.
The wedding was great and we had a relaxing weekend.Drove to Bozeman and visited with Aaron and went and saw the giant elephant made of tires.
I even got a picture of the sleeping giant on the way home.
