Isn't she purty?? Yes, she is a pretty gurl. And I am going to make her a sister.

My parents are celebrating their 59th wedding anniversary this Sunday.
My mom and dad never had a wedding or anything of the sort..so I am going to make them a wedding cake.
It will model this one but with a few changes.
I am hoping that they will like it. I am going to start on it today.
Making tons of flowers by hand so that will be time consuming!!
I am a sentimnetal person and I would like my parents to have a wedding cake.
They never posed for a wedding picture but I found a beautiful pic of them together and had it framed and all of the family wrote a message on the mat for them a few years ago. They LOVED IT!!! It hangs in their living room for all to see. I think my mom wanted to cry but she is not the crying type.
Big thanks for everyone who inquired about me during my "vacation."
I wouldn't call it quite a vacation... but the rest was much needed.
This is Superbowl Sunday!!!
I am personally cheering for the Saints!!
Mr. H is rallying behind the colts.
(This should be interesting)
The world will be celebrating today one way or another..
We had a celebration in our family too.
A few weeks ago this very chic young lady turned 87!!!
That is my Aunt Ruth.. the STRONGEST woman I have EVER met!!!
Seriously. No Joke. She is a phenomenal woman who has overcome mountains that I pray I never have to climb.
I come from a very small family...approx. 15 members.
We are pretty close nit. So we all got together and threw my aunt a surprise get together.
The entire family was there.
(sorry about the blur)
That's me eating cake...the birthday girl in the background!!
She gave me a gift years ago that no one could ever take from me
the gift of art. She saw something in me when I was like 10.
I use to try to sketch little things here and there and she enrolled me in oil painting.
This is my 2nd painting. It came so naturally to me. My art teacher would give me a picture and let me do my thing. As you can see from the signature, I still could not write in paint but I could paint. Go figure.
I gave this to here when I was 11. It was a birthday present for her.
A portrait of Jesus. My first and last portrait.
and Lo and Behold...
Aunt Ruth can paint too!!!
I told you she was amazing!!
Happy Birthday Aunt Ruth may you see many more because we have so much more to learn.
The journey has been long but girl has it been fun!! The road has gotten rocky sometimes but we just put on our best pair of heels and walked the path in style. Follow me, along with my two amazing daughters and one silly dog, as we try to find out where the road ends and bliss begins... I pray there is a Dior store there.
