Happy 25th Anniversary

Twenty-five years ago today, my lovely sister, Carol, married her wonderful husband, Marty.  They had an informal wedding in their beautiful backyard.  It was a perfect day filled with sunshine, blue skies, bright colorful flowers in the garden and a yard filled with family and friends.

Since that day, they have guided their blended family to adulthood, attended the weddings of their children and have become loving grandparents to another generation.  Then and now, family continues to be the center of their lives.

 Wishing you many more years of happiness in the future.

I'm not sure who took the photos, but Marty's head was cut off in almost all of them!

 Love and Hugs to both of you on your special day!

Cornhole Cookies

It "takes a village," or at least a block, of hard working, dedicated friend to organize a successful block party that is a summer tradition in many Chicago neighborhoods.  My niece, Jody, organizes a wonderful event every year and is grateful for the help she receives from many of her neighbors.  She asked me if I could make "Cornhole Cookies" for a senior citizen who constructs a game every year to be used as a raffle prize.  At the age of 86 he even volunteered to be in the dunk tank!

No matter how old I get, I am always learning . . . I had no idea this game was called "Cornhole," I thought it was bean bag toss.

Back To School Minis

Back to school minis for the children in the family.  I used plastic containers for mailing and glass for the ones that could be hand delivered.  Thanks to The Decorated Cooke, for the printable tags.

Have a Great School Year!
