Trish over on "This'n That" tagged me. This is awesome, Trish tagged me to get to know me better. I had to go and read her tag so I knew more about her also. Thanks Trish. I hope this helps. So now I have to come up with 6 Random things about myself.

1. I went to Wapato, Washington to the Yakima Indian Reservation. Our Mission team went there and did a week Teen Camp, two different Summers. We had a blast and many lives were touched. I spent a week in New Orleans to help with the clean up after Katrina.

2. I love to decorate cakes. I have done many birthday and celebration cakes. As of my last count I had decorated 27 Wedding cakes. The largest wedding cake next to my son's which had 8 cakes, was my baby brother's, his had 10, with the stairs and fountain. I started doing birthday cakes for my oldest son when he was turning 3. I have did both boys cakes since then. I also helped with my Oldest Sons' Wedding cake. The Bride's Mom and I went together and did their cake. We made their flowers and decorations. What a lovely wedding they had. (I will post some pictures of a few of my cakes in a later post.)

3. When my oldest son Curtis was in 2ND grade I was his Tiger Cub Scout Leader. From there I followed him into Boy Scouts. At the same time I was my youngest son's leaders also. I helped with many Summer Day Camps and Webelo's Camps. I was the Round Table Commissioner for 4 or 5 years (District Position). We had many fun times. Husband Chuck was Cub Master for a couple years.

4. I love to have a vegetable garden and then can the rewards for the winter months. I can what I can put into jars, and then freeze also. I make homemade jams and jellies. Also fresh breads with Zucchini.

Missing In Action

I am sorry I have been away for so long. But I had to help a friend of ours clean, paint, shampoo a 2 story 4 bedroom house. I have never cleaned and paint to many rooms and floors at one time. OH MY GOSH...She is 8.5 months pregnant and I thought we would ever get it all finished. And would you believe she still hasn't had that baby.

I will be back tomorrow for a post of some of the Halloween things that I made (well before this cleaning started).

Thanks for stopping by,
