Weekend Visitors

My older sister's son, Jon, called me on Friday. "Hey Kaaren, whatcha doin?" I told him we were driving to meet some friends at a Mickey D's for a hand-off of baked goods (more on that later. tee hee) and would be home soon. "So.......can we come up?" "We" being he and his mom (my big sis, Brenda). "Of course!" Their drive was about a 3 hours one.

After the hand-off (tee hee), we came back home so I could quickly clean the bathrooms and get the house looking ready for guests.

Isabel and her Aunt Brenda starting an art project while I cooked lasagna in the kitchen.

Work in progress.

After Isabel went to bed, I showed my sister several of the techniques I have been learning in cake decorating class, including making roses.

Brenda and I then got to work on some gum paste pieces for a future project. Sorry, but more on that later.
Saturday morning, Brenda, Isabel and I went for a 40 minute walk around the neighborhood. We took the stroller and were booking it! After showering, Brenda and I headed out to Kohl's for some serious shopping. Three hours and less then $90 later, I walked out with 2 T-shirts, 3 nicer casual tops, 1 pair of jeans, 1 necklace, a pair of earrings and two pairs of shoes. I did pretty darned good!

We picked up Chinese on the way home for an early dinner and then headed to Uptown Altamonte for ice cream at Coldstone, and a walk around Uptown Altamonte and Crane's Roost park at night. It was beautiful.

They left this morning (Sunday). It was a fun family weekend.
