Being productive

December 15, 2008

TiKKi dress for Evelyn’s Christmas present:

Chocolate truffles for Emma’s teachers:

Gingerbread cookies for playgroup (cut and decorated by Emma):

Lesley’s vanilla cupcakes for Emma’s last day of school shared lunch tomorrow:

The icing is tinted with beetroot – no artificial colours – and you wouldn’t know it from the taste. Yum! I am always keen to find more natural ways of doing things, and I know at least one mum in the class avoids artificial colours entirely for her daughter.

And just to freak out any non-Aussies reading (and maybe some Aussies too), this was a spider on our wall last night. My knight in shining armour a.k.a. my partner Garry killed it.
