Koi Fish!

No rhyme or reason. I just had a chance to be here today!

School Girl coaxed me into buying a cupcake book for school this coming year. It's so cute and we're having fun working our way through it.


We started by making picnic ants with watermelons on their backs! Too cute, but alas I have no pictures. So today I made and effort to make sure we took some pics of her Koi fish. They turned out just like the book! I think the children at the swim party will really enjoy them.



Beside baking we have been super busy with the daily life of running a house, finishing up any loose ends for the school year, writing class plans and getting everything ready for August. Swimming and scrap booking are in full swing. I've also taken some time and read 5 books in the last 3 weeks. I really enjoy reading, but I put it on hold because I get to engrossed in it. This year I'm trying to read out in the screened gazebo in the evenings and quiet myself down for the day. Ahhh.

Any ideas on some great reads? It's been a long time. I may just read what's on Urban Girl's history list for this coming year and lasts.

Those are really cute! I want to do these with the kids this summer. What are the fins made of?

The fins are made of circus peanuts, a cheerio for the mouth, orange m&m eyes, frosting for eye ball or you can use mini m&m's.
