Cupcake Decorating Fun

 When Alec and I saw that this cupcake decorating class called Furry Friends was going to be offered on a Monday where he had no school we decided to sign up together.  He tried to get a few friends to join him but this company had moved and was not almost an hour away so no one wanted to join in.  We decided not to let that stop us.  It was rainy and snowy on the day of the class and we weren't sure if it was going to be canceled or how the roads would be.  We left early and gave ourselves plenty of extra time to get there and to to find this new facility.  We were the first ones there!  They had tables set up so each group that signed up would be spaced far apart and all our supplies were divided up and ready to use. We already knew from the sign up sheet that we were going to be making 6 cupcakes each-- a panda bear, a koala, a llama, some bamboo, a dog, and a sloth.  As soon as everyone arrived the teacher went through the supplies on our table and then we started working.  Ale

Friday Favorites: The Last Week of February

 We ended up having a great week with a teasing of  spring.  It was warm and sunny most days and we really tried to take advantage of that whenever we could. It was still snowing when we woke on Friday.   The storm system had started Thursday afternoon around 1:30 and was forecasted to last until late Friday night.   Needless to say Alec's school was all virtual with teachers working from home.  I know so many teachers and students are disappointed to lose their snow days but we are loving this set up and knowing that school will still end in early June! Alec made an origami crow for extra credit in World History and finished up his unit in Spanish with a test.  Alec's origami crow Ian had a hair cut mid-day and it was rather weird for us all that he was leaving, heading out to lunch, and then running errands afterwards.  Alec went sledding after school and I snuggled up to finish reading my latest book.  The sun was shining when we got up on Saturday.  I made a get well card
