Long Time, No See

O.K., so I took a little unannounced leave of absence from writing this blog. Who am I kidding? It was a rather long leave of absence. Life simply got in the way for a while. Do you forgive me?

So much has happened over the last few months. I have been making some progress in decorating my house. And my twins turned one year old a few weeks ago! I want to share it all with you, my friends.

So without further adieu, here are some photos from my twins’ first party, which had a duck theme.






















































The party favors were sugar cookies in the shape of ducks. I used my mom’s favorite butter icing recipe, which is so very yummy, but it makes a thick icing that is very hard to smooth out. Midway through, I realized the error of my ways and regretted that I had not followed the cookie and icing tutorials on the Pink Martinis and Pearls Blog. (If you have not seen Pink Martini’s gorgeous creations, you really must head over there right now.) Next time, I will know better!
