Baby shower fun, snow fun and award fun!

Just wanted to share a few of the details for the baby shower this weekend. Here are the cookies that we are giving out to the shower guests. The bakery where we got these from has never had anyone ask to put a ultrasound photo on the cookie before. They told us that they were unsure if it would even work because of the quality of these kind of pictures but if you click on them you can see they turned out really nice. I air brushed the last name for these photos. We got blue plastic wrap and wrapped them in it and tied a bow around them. The Mom to be was so excited when I showed her the cookies. The bakery told us they were going to offer this as a regular item on their website from now on.
And just wanted to show you little buttons(aka, my granddaughter Maddie) enjoying the snow in our backyard yesterday. She has her own little tiny sled. Why do kids love the snow so much? The cold doesn't seem to bother them at all.

And my good bloggin buddy Sandi gave me this wonderful MWAH. I love a good MWAH. And I especially love that it is pink. I am passing this great big MWAH on to all of my blogging buddies. Thanks Sandi!
And my other good blogging buddy Donna was giving out this great award. Thanks so much Donna. I am also passing this on to all of my blogging friends. I know you are suppose to pick just a few but I always have trouble doing that because you are all so great.

In other news, it's really snowing here this afternoon and they say we are going to get ice later on. I went to the grocery, we have lots of food and I have my magazines, books and blogs to read, so all is good. Stay safe and warm.

Dear jOAN, thank you for the comment you left on my previous post, "A hidden world". I read every comments and read them again with pure joy! How creative can you be! As I let my imagination run wild, I could hear the old Kookaburra--its laugh filling the air of the vast Outback of Australia, I saw the small alabaster colored shell resting in the white sand as the waves came crashing, and heard the sound of thunder roaring as the waves slapped against the rocks, I saw a dog, enchanted by the colorful mallards and honking birds, a ladybug hidding in the garden; yellow, orange, or scarlet with small black spots on their wing
covers; the little wren nesting in a grandmother’s clothesline post… Oh what delight! I became one with God listening to nature through your words...

Blessings to you and yours
