Yesterday went much too much faster than I expected. After squeezing oranges and makin' bacon, I spent the day cuddling my great-niece. In the middle of the afternoon, Dexter began barking like crazy. The doorbell rang, and looked what appeared...
As soon as I saw the card addressed to 'Larri Dawn,' I knew it had to be from my brother and sister-in-law. My face split into a big 'ol grin, as I told the boys and DH to back off so I could get a quick picture. I wish I could have captured the beauty of this cookie bouquet better. The colors of the icing were so bright and cheery. And, yes...I did use past tense. The sweet treats were gobbled by the boys, and savored by me in mere moments. PSST!...I saved the center cookie, and have it hidden away to enjoy with a cup of tea this afternoon. Thank you, Brother T and Sister A! We loved this!
The day ended with an online school meeting / social with the event planner for the boys' school. Wow! She plans events around the state for our almost 4000 (and growing) students to attend. I met some great Moms last night, that I hope to meet IRL soon.
Randy has a Holy Moment

I was in one of my favorite LQS last week and spied this gorgeous fabric with the bamboo on it. It reminded me of Kate's Geisha Quilt. The ladies at the quilt store quickly fell in love with the fabric too. It was new, and neither of them had seen it come in. Fate! The three of us walked through the store and found some coordinating fabrics. I loved it so much I bought two sets. This set, I'm giving to one of you, my sweet bloggy friends.
