Keepers at home - cake decorating

Today was the monthly Keepers at Home meeting which I try to go along and help out at when I can. This month we had the opportunity to learn about cake decorating from Jenny's sister Patti. Jenny, Patti, and I had baked several batches of little cakes the day before -- all ready for the girls to try their hand at decorating. I was chosen as "official photographer" for the day (and babysitter:-) so the picture at left is of me with my camera taken by our hostess, Kara. She, with her husband, opened up their home not only to us, but to the church's group for boys, Contenders of the Faith, as well. The guys met in the front yard (see some pictures further down in this post), then we all got together at the end for cake and some time for the adults to visit, and children to play. We had a fun time together!

Cousins in the van ready to leave. There are no words to describe our van trip, 11 children, 2 moms, 1 grandmother, and me, curvy country roads, lots of noise, and carsickness....yet in the midst of all that I was thinking, someday we'll look back on this as "the good old days!"

Hannah gets some help.

I watched Katie along with taking pictures - here she is after getting into the icing - so cute.

Decorating cakes.

I caught Emily licking icing:-)

Grace shows off her finished cake to me - so pretty.

The girls' hard work....all finished.

All eleven cakes!

Contenders of the Faith meeting

Pastor teaching the Contenders self defense, fighting, or something like that....

I'm not sure what is going on here...

I must admit taking pictures of their class was far more interesting.....:-)

A favorite little contender:-)


The cake Patti made for our snack!

Everyone -Keepers and Contenders - got together for cake at the end...and this is the last of the pictures because I was too busy helping little ones eat to take anymore:-)

Intense Debate Comments

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
