This week has been a week for vacations, family, food, fun and lots and lots of love.....but most of all....(and I am taking a chance here because some people might not love me anymore after this!)
It has been a week of...........
(and yes, even the doggies were making them! he he)
and if my Nanny were here
I'm pretty darn sure she would be joining in on the fun!
What is it about sticking your tounge out for photos? he he. Yeah, I have done it too. I just couldn't find one with me sticking my tounge out. So if any of you who are mad at me for putting this up here has one, send it to me. I'll share!
Nanny's Mayonnaise Cake recipe - turned into cupcakes - frosted with buttercream - and 48 of them devoured over 3 days. Yummy! Yes, Matthew (my first photo) seemed to think so too. He devoured several of them (unfrosted at that!). Nanny would be so proud.
and while you can't see the crumbs on his face here I wanted to include Austin - who stole the last cupcake with peanut butter frosting. It must be a family thing to be loving Nanny's recipe!
