My good friend Betsey has been encouraging me to make Mary Audrey's birthday cake, including the homemade baker's icing. I really didn't want to but I thought I would give this a try. I do like to bake/cook but it is not as convenient has it used to be! *wink* *wink* Anyways, I did bake the cake and make the icing and from my reviews it turned out well. I have some work to do with food coloring and decorating. Mary Audrey enjoyed it and that is all that matters. :) Thank you Bets for the encouragment and letting me borrow all of your supplies!!!
Here are some pictures from the party.

MA loved unwrapping all of her gifts. I forsee that Christmas will be a lot of fun this year.
Aunt Gigi, Uncle Jo Jo, E-ya, & the trips sent MA this tutu that included a wand and bracelets. She didn't take it off for quite some time. It is so CUTE!
Can't leave any cards out. They are very important.
MA being the ham that she is ... :)
Visited our friends in Vicksburg, Jacob, Kara, Jake, & Presley Brister. We had so much fun and appreciate the Brister's adjusting their schedule for us. Bristers, we expect to see you in Starkville very soon!

This is the back room. It was an old porch that the previous owners enclosed.
A new window was also installed in that room. Here is the inside picture. It really brightens up that room and i love being able to look to the backyard.
The view from the backyard to the new window. Lovely!
Below is part of the master bedroom that included a wonderful sliding glass door. I didn't want it to stay since John travels so much and I was scared it would be a great entry point for robbers. So ... the door is gone and a wonderful window is now in its place.
Window on far right is the new one.
Notice the brick on the far right is now in place. I'm going to paint the brick to make it flow with the other brick that was discontinued 11 years ago. NICE!
