Christmas In July

On Sunday, I went to my monthly scrap group get together and the theme was "Christmas In July". We had a great afternoon with Secret Santa gifts, Christmas packs to create some LO's, and more party food than we could consume. I made the Christmas cupcakes which were a vanilla cake recipe with butter frosting and red smarties and halved mint leaves. I had to buy 2 bags of smarties to get 34 red ones, so we have plenty of smarties left minus red ones. The mint leaves were quite hard to cut in half as they were very sticky in the middle and squashed down but they seemed to regain their shape. I did a Christmas LO and started another. It was a great day of laughter and good cheer.
Penny went to a party on Saturday at McDonalds. There was a face painter who attends every Saturday afternoon. She loved having her face painted again.

Nicholas and Craig had a boys day on Saturday where they took the new big boat out for a little run in the morning. On Saturday afternoon they went to soccer where by all reports Nick played a great game.
