Alex had some recent fame on this blog, Pricilla's Baking Adventures and she won a prize here.
She was SOOO excited! It made her week and inspired her to try Pricilla's sour cream cookies. (We're not quite as neat and tidy as Pricilla but in all fairness Alex let Jake help frost the cookies) :-)
Grandma and Grandpa Buller just returned from Maine at the beginning of this month. They brought gifts for everyone!
These were a hit... (and I chose not to fight the battle when they wore these bonnets to church this morning.)
He justified evading this picture because after all, the gift is the jacket and I wanted a picture of the jacket.
They really wanted to see me look like Ma on Little House on the Prairie. Somehow I am missing the innocent, traditional strength and beauty Mrs. Ingalls portrayed. :-)
And somehow Alex didn't get snagged in action with her gift. She recieved an apron and a Maine cookbook of chowders and such. She woke up at 6:30 this morning and made donut muffins for breakfast out of her new cookbook. They were Y.U.M.M.Y.
