Decorating with the Youth!!

First I just have to say, I love the youth of the Church!
I had the wonderful opportunity to teach some of my Young Women from one of my old wards how to decorate cakes last Wednesday. I will always consider them my Young Women even though I am not their leader anymore. I miss both groups of Young Women I have served. I truly love these young girls and I always think of them. The youth of the Church are truly amazing.

I had such a wonderful time visiting with the girls. I couldn't believe how big some of them have gotten in the past 3 years. One of my primary students was there in the Young Women's. I can't believe how time flies.

The one in the center was my primary student and look at her now, she is a young woman.

All of them with their beautiful cakes.
Good job girls!!

Oh how I miss these girls!

As you can see, I have been extremely busy. Not only did I teach the Young Women how to decorate cakes and have to bake all those cakes but I have been getting ready for the Blue and Gold dinner we are having on Saturday for our Cub Scouts. Yes, I am in Cub Scouts and I love those boys too. Like I said, I love the youth of the church. I have been in charge of the food and some of the decorations for the dinner and we are expecting 300 people. I also am making 2 cakes for the dessert auction we are having.

Not only have I had the Blue and Gold dinner to do but I have been working on the 2 projects for Ayla's birthday. I am almost done with them. I would have had them done today because it is Ayla's Birthday today but I had to postpone her party until next week. I had a few reasons for that: Ayla was sick at the beginning of the week. She got better but then Grandma Perry went into the hospital and we were not sure when she was going to get out. Also, one of Ayla's present's is still coming in the mail. Plus, I had enough on my plate with the Blue and Gold dinner. Happy to say that Grandma Perry got out of the hospital yesterday and is doing fine. I think I was meant to postpone the party because I didn't have enough time to bake Ayla's and Kurt's cakes and get everything wrapped in time for their party. Yes, it was Kurt's party too. His birthday is today. I just want to end this post with:

Happy Birthday Ayla! Happy Birthday Kurt! I love you both so very much!!
