We are a small, fun crew. But we had BIG snacks. I made some brownies (with strawberry butter cream, yum!) and scones. Now, I have to admit I didn't love the scones. I am working hard at finding a recipe for basic scones with no fruit that are just flaky and sweet. They always seem to turn out too airy and light or gummy. These were gummy. Oh well. I offered lots of homemade jams (blueberry, peach, strawberry and apple butter) to hide the flavor. Ha!
The first hour and a half was just eating, drinking and telling stories. Molly was only there for this time but I'd say that's not a bad Saturday. After that, we got serious about the crafting.
I'm amazed at how much stuff I have any more. But, we made Valentine's using stamps, glue, paper, envelopes, glitter (Becky used LOTS of glitter..) and fun little embellishments. Poor Becky worked so hard on about 3 different Valentine's. Covered in glue and glitter at the end she kept proclaiming "this was NOT worth it". But, I give her an "A" for effort! Ha.
It was a great day of crafts. Madison woke from her nap near the end and we went upstairs to get her and actually played in her play room for a bit. Then, we all decided to head to dinner. A day of caffeine and sugar can make you quite hungry. Ha. Anyway, we had a great time. Thanks to my gals for loving this as much as I do. Here's to many more.
