Happy Vernal Equinox!

LOL :)
I thought I'd pop in and say 'Happy Spring',
since tomorrow is the first official day.

Here's a cake I made for the occassion...



I was finally able to use all my new
cake decorating accessories!
It took me 2 hours to frost and decorate...
good thing I'm ambidextrous!
(One hand would get really tired, so I'd
just switch to the other one :)

I made homemade 'Wilton Buttercream Frosting'
and I never want to use storebought again!
(I LOVE it! Much easier to decorate with!)
The filling between the two layers is blue.
No one will know until tomorrow when we eat it 8-)

At first I was going to make a "Happy Friday" cake,
but I looked and noticed tomorrow's the 1st of spring.
So tomorrow's forcast is:
Park day (Stephani and I crochet and chat),
Cake day (finally get to eat it!),
Pizza night (Stephani and I cook them and clean),
and...
a Cool spring night (farewell to winter)

I hope you all enjoy your Friday
and first day of spring tomorrow!


"For, lo, the winter is past...
The flowers appear on the earth;
the time of the singing of birds is come..."
Song of Solomon 2:11a, 3:12a

Our family took a trip to Tractor Supply yesterday for some chicken feed. As soon as we stepped in, we heard chicks. So we all stopped by the chick area. They were so cute. My brothers and I begged Mom to get some Bantams. :) She said we'll get some when we come back from SC.

Blessings,
Alli

I just hope that the weather will act like spring! I wish that I had a friend that I could get together with and knit or crochet. It sounds like a lot of fun! :)

Have a very bright, very cheerful day!
