Cupcake Saturday....

Today was mother - daughter day. These days are so special , because having two older sons, I know how fast it can all go by. So we went off to the book store, sat by the fireplace and read books. She with her jewelry how-to craft books and me with Somerset Life and the new issues of Victoria and Romantic Homes. After our day out she said : "lets Bake". So since these are rare occasions , I had to say yes ;) when will she ask again? I hope next month ;) and I hope till we are both old and gray together in our little cottage....mother and Melanie says: " No boys allowed. I love when we say that to each other and then giggle giggle :)

note: This very vintage looking, gorgeous cupcake sign was made by the ever talented Jenny's Bake Shop, I have collected her things over the years and just adore her talents!

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend! ~ Hugs ~ Cynthia

What a wonderful way to spend a Saturday! You are creating memories with her that she will cherish for a life time.

You are very blessed to have such a wonderful relationship with your daugther.

How fun that must have been. I also have two boys and one girl. I find now that she is going to be married I am trying to grasp every moment with her before I have to share her. She is actually here in town right now, stopped by this morning for breakfast. I don't normally cook a big breakfast but I did today for sure!! :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I just love yours! Cupcakes and I have a little love/hate relationship (I love them, my scale hates them) so I particularly enjoyed your post today. I can't wait until my daughter and I can have those special days. I guess I should go ahead and get them started ASAP. Thanks again so much!
Keep laughing!
Blessed Mama

You are creating such great memories! My brother has always made pumpkin pies from scratch with his kids. This year my niece emailed my from college (her first year) saying that she was so glad it was fall and couldn't wait to make pumpkin pies.

Hi Cynthia,
Thank you for visiting me today. I always love to hear from you! I also have a daughter and know how special that time is just with her. Now she is all grown up and actually loves to bake just like I do! I can't wait until Thanksgiving when she is home when we can bake together. It really is something that you can do with your daughter even when she grows up..:) Amy
