I would like to honor my grandchildren who have been nameless and faceless on this blog!!Jonathan was born 2 years ago this Mother's Day....obviously the cutest little boy on the face of the earth...and little grandbaby #2 is still 'nameless' but not faceless. Here you see her at 20 weeks development by ultrasound. Isn't she a cutie??? More details in September...!!! :)
One of my most recent fun experiments was designed for a family get-together in Harriet, Arkansas a couple of weeks ago. My DH's mother gathered the clan at a Christian camp where 13 adults - including his parents and his 5 siblings and spouses, our daughter and 2 yr old grandson, and 10 nieces and nephews (ranging from 1 yr to 13!) had the run of a large lodge, full of nooks and crannies and hiding places and bunk beds and sleeping nests...which was a very good thing, since the rain was incessant that weekend and we were unable to play outside!!
The Thanksgiving krispie pumpkin that I had created had been very popular with these same children at a previous reunion. I decided to come up with another piece of 'art', this time with a resurrection theme, since this gathering was over Easter weekend. With inspiration from my good friend Bonnie, far more experienced than I in the art of rice krispie sculpture, this was the result.
The swirled pastel egg was beautiful, and we all carefully ate around it, munching happily on the green marshmallow and cornflake 'grass' in which it was nestled...but when the egg was finally cut, out tumbled a surprise filling of M & M's!
It was a big hit. And it more than satisfied every sweet tooth!
