Free-for all Friday: Bake-athon!!





waiting (again)


all of this x3. And I wish (oh, how I wish) the next word was eating,

but these 6 loaves in homemade freezer paper bags are coming with us on a road trip to

My Great Grandmother*

(isn't she cute!) is turning 100 on Sunday (!!!) and the 10 of us are packing up and heading out to be there for the special day. Eating will have to wait. This is the first time I have done major baking of the kind and I LOVE IT!!! I'm so glad I got over my bread making phobia. It has been wonderfully gratifying and a lovely thing for KT and I to share together. I think we're going to have to do this a lot more often.

I plan to take some wool felt with me and to make my GG (that's what we all call her) a birthday crown on the long drive. I get car sick reading in the car, so I'm hoping that sewing in the car won't have the same effect. We'll see. I think it may be best to wait till we're out of the Rockies to try. I'll let you know how it goes.

Kelly will be posting next week about our Spring Cleaning giveaway plans. They are big! Let me just say that they are equal to if not better than the last one and also involve music! So be sure to comment to any of this month's posts to be entered :)

Have a great weekend!

*We have 5 generations of women, alive and well, in my family! I'll try to get a picture of all of us on the trip :

    That is so incredibly beautiful Kandyce! What a special day. My grandparents just turned 91, and I thought that was good:)

  2. Kandyce,
    You did an awesome job braiding the
    bread! Say happy birthday to GG from
    our family for us! That will be a great
    celebration and can't wait to see a photo
    of the 5 generations!

    Happy Birthday to your Great-Grandmother. I hope your trip went well and you have a safe journey home. Enjoy every moment of your family reunion.

  4. Oh GG--I miss you so much! I wish I was on that car trip with you all right now:) Your bread turned out just perfect!

  5. Your bread looks photographically perfect! You should be a food stylist. Happy Birthday GG...wish we were there to celebrate.

  6. That bread looks beautiful Kandyce....I am really impressed! Not that I didn't think you could bake bread...but, honestly, it looks like they came from Whole Foods.
