want some pie...

After a wonderful visit with friends yesterday and working into the wee hours of the morning on a few orders we are taking it easy here this morning...moving at a slow pace and enjoying pj time. Only a few more days of calm then jetting off from here to there begins as family visits, vacations, and creating is in full swing. It has been a summer tradition of ours to detach from the little ones for a couple weeks and send them off to their grandparents for an extended vacation. This year they get it...it is all about them and boy are they ready to go. Who wouldn't love country living for a few weeks. Catching fish, playing in the backyard creeks, and running all over two acres of grassy fields. Makes me miss the summer days in the Pacific Northwest! As we keep indoors here in the south we become creative while we count down the days until their departure. Baking treats is probably our favorite past time as we picked up a large bag of M&Ms for our cookies today. Let's just hope they are not all eaten before they make it to the bowl.

So as we continue our sweet theme for MelJen's Designs and for today's challenge ...

Thank you for joining me here on my laid back day. Back to work and getting around to making our cookies...making sure we save a few for daddy.

Check back tomorrow as I share with you my Nikki Sivils blog post and some exciting sneak peeks as a new Doodlelicous Diva!
