Housewarming

Tomorrow we are going to a BBQ at my cousin's new house.  It is so nice to have family living closer now.  First my mom and dad, and now my cousin.  This cousin is pretty special to me, as I have lots of fond memories of her growing up.  My grandma use to have these huge oak trees in her front yard.  We use to play house on the base of them...it was so much fun.



Anyway, I bought her a new pitcher for her house.  It had a bit of green in it and I thought it would go nicely with these towels, which I embelished with a bit of scraps I had.  I thought the scraps were the perfect match, don't you??

Speaking of perfect, this cute boy just turned 7.  It was a fun day. 

I asked him what kind of cake he wanted, and he replied, "Your chocolate cake cuz my mama makes the best chocolate cake."  Melt my heart.

Wonderful towels! A beautiful gift to give your cousin. Family is such a wonderful thing. And your son is right...Mama cake is the best.

I'm chuckling at such a sweet comment from your son. My oldest loves what he calls my "Donut Cake" (bundt cake) and my others son is a pumpkin pie kid. With that said....a friend of mine brought over a cake years ago when they were little. It was simply a box mix and canned frosting sheet cake. They named that one a Kimberly Cake and every now and then when I doctor up a cake mix they ask why I couldn't just leave it as a Kimberly cake!
