Well my bloglines has not been working so I just caught up on your last 7 posts:) Can't wait to try this recipe. I know my girls will love it. I enjoyed your American Girl story too. We actually live close to the city so we have been fortunate to visit there quite a few times. They just moved the store, I think today, so I'm anxious to see it now. It's supposed to be even bigger and better:):):) Love how your daughter set out her clothes. My oldest still ocassionally does this. Too cute:)

Congratulations on your award! The funny thing is that I was given that award a few weeks ago, and haven't had time to pass it along, but when I did, you were going to be one of the 5 I sent it to. So... consider yourself double awarded - because your blog does make me smile!

Blessings to you... Jennifer
