Season of Celebration

Lots of things to celebrate in June, huh? 
I always forget about all the graduations and weddings, etc...
It keeps you busy and broke! 
I made our middle son's cake this year...
I spent $4 :) using a boxed cake mix and some inexpensive ice cream. 
I made fudge icing the same way my mother always did...in a skillet with butter, sugar, milk and cocoa powder.
It was pretty tasty! The birthday boy was so very happy :) 
He hosted a camp out with some friends (who as it turns out, don't really sleep outside very well LOL). 

But back to the cake ... :) ...I think I might make some of them ahead and have them frozen for occasions or gifts. 
How upset would you be if someone showed up on your doorstep with an ice cream cake???

If your weather is anything like ours this week....even your skin and bones would be in a puddle on the porch by the time someone opened the door!!! 
We are practicing creative ways to stay inside! 

Saturday night we attended a beautiful outdoor wedding. 
This old buggy held the gifts :) And the reception was in the wonderful red barn. It has a huge stained glass window. 

Introduce yourselves to Beckham :) 
Now come and tell us what he/she is!!! 
Other than the sweetest love ever :)
So soft, sweet and smart!!! 

Becks keeps me company as I iron in the bedroom ...I think he/she is dreaming of that awesome FIFA World Cup game between the UK and the US.  My birthday boy has 4 soccer coaches from the UK...we are still awaiting their commentary on that game :) 
You know what it is time for don't you????
