Apple/banana with crumb & buttercream topping (yes...all from scratch)
We are getting ready for Sydnie's First Holy Communion (and party) Saturday. She has been so excited about this big day, that she is even telling everyone that instead of money, she would like a bible, books on saints and stuff along those lines. Yes, leave it to my Sydnie, the one who got all of the smarts in the math department. She loves to just sit and figure out math problems for the fun of it...along with reading. She will be an amazing adult with intelligence and compassion...along with a great religious belief! She will be reading a petition (in the catholic church...petitions are read to pray for different people and situations.) so she has been practicing her readings...well...heehee...religiously.
So needless to say, I've been cleaning like mad (this type of cleaning is more deep cleaning...it involves scrubbing walls, fixing up the house...that kind of stuff). With a house full of kids who loves to just throw their stuff wherever and whenever they want...its been a task. One that I am losing the battle on. So most of this "cleaning" will have to be done either on Thursday evening or Friday...along with the cooking and baking! Yes...I am attempting to bake cupcakes.
Not only are we celebrating Syd's Communion...we are also celebrating Kenny's 4th birthday! So this should be a very nice family get-together!
