Pilly Pockets

First off, Isabel calls "Polly Pockets" "Pilly Pockets". The other day we were headed out to the store and she wanted to bring her pilly pocket but she was wearing a dress so I told her she couldn't because there wasn't anywhere to put it. After putting Lucy in her carseat, Isabel asked if pilly could come like this:
I said "Yes"! She was so happy. I am happy to report that pilly pocket stayed in her boot the entire time. Isabel is very creative and even funnier!

Joseph Cake Done

I have been working so hard all week on this cake and I have to say that it looks pretty good. It didn't turn out exactly as I thought it would, but still good. I am always critical of myself and my work. I didn't want the cake to be so crowded, but I still think it's good. The junior high kids LOVED it (the kid that played pharoh even ran over and hugged me, it was akward). It was all worth it to get the reaction I did from the kids, it was great!

Joseph Cake

My cousin Melani is directing the play "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" and I offered to make a cake for her cast. I love making cakes and I love this show, so I was excited to do it. I have been planning it for months and I am hoping I am not over-extending myself. I am hoping it turns out as good as it is in my head. Me working on Joseph and his brothers. They start off as rice krispie treats on skewers, pretty fancy huh?

Seeing if the head will work. it's looking good........

The corn for the cake. Corn is part of two dream in the play; Josephs dream and Pharoh's dream. They turned out cute.

One of the brothers done. I don't think I will do legs, he'll just sit on the cake like this. I am pretty happy with how he turned out.

The Hello Song

On Sunday I started my new calling in our ward, which, oh yippee, it's primary again. During sharing time they asked all the new teachers to come to the front so that the primary could give us a proper welcome into primary. So, the chorister said, "let's sing the hello song. What language should we sing it in?" One little boy yelled out, "Chinese".
So they began to sing "ME-OW, Me-OW, ME-OW, ME-OW, we welcome you today, ME-OW......."
In my mind I was thinking, "I thought we were doing Chinese, not cat. It's pronounced Ne-HOW. It was super funny
