|Last February I showed my daughter a blog post with the most darling cake! She had it in her mind, that she wanted an Alice in Wonderland party just like that! I almost didn't go through with it, as there was just so much to do, but in the end, somehow it all came together. The cake was a family affair. it took us a couple of days to make, but so much fun.|
|I made DD an Alice dress,and one for her AG doll too. Doesn't Julie (the doll) look like the perfect Alice?|
This is the quilt that my mom and I made for my DD's birthday. I pieced and appliqued the quilt and my mom "HAND QUILTED" it, in about a weeks time. Isn't her stitching perfect? DD loved it!

Other events this month...my husband and I celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary. We had 2 major holidays, the 4th of July and the 24th of July, which is Pioneer Day in Utah, and is a big deal! (It's the day the Mormon pioneers arrived in the Salt Lake Valley, after being persecuted and driven from their beautiful city of Nauvoo, Illinois.)Brigham City Tabernacle, in which the pioneers built in 1868, and has subsequently gone through a total renovation in 1986. We were tour hosts for this beautiful building. It was a neat experience to be able to learn all about the history of the building and those who sacrificed to build it. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, is building a temple right across the street, which will be an impressive sight to see.
Also this month, I had 2 nephews get baptized. Family parties and lots of food always accompany those wonderful events. We had a family wedding that ended up getting canceled 4 days before the event. We still had lots of family visiting, so we had more parties and food! I tell you, I'll never work off the calories we've eaten!
