Just Desserts

Ever get the feeling you're being watched?

We played around with the idea Barb shared with our extra cupcakes. Cookies are the plan for next year because the girls had so much fun making these!

For the grownups!

We watched our fireworks on the screen at home and really enjoyed A Capitol Fourth on PBS. Who knew Steve Martin played in a bluegrass band? The kids enjoyed Me and Paul Revere the best. I loved, loved, loved getting to hear Matthew Morrison and Kelli O'Hara sing Tonight from West Side Story.   Josh Groban's tribute to the injured soldiers was quite moving. The cast of Million Dollar Quartet gave us a chance to share a little rock-n-roll history with the children. And Little Richard's voice might not be as strong as it was but his fingers can still fly even though the man is almost 80! (If you missed it, they advertised a repeat performance later.)

Here's hoping fireworks don't keep you awake, unless you want them to. 
Good night!


  1. I love your wet on wet "spider web" designs.:) I saw those on Martha Stewart Living's mag cover. I so wanted to make cookies for my business for the kids with those designs, but it didn't work out.:( Maybe next year...or maybe later this week!;) I'm up to my eyeballs in sewing right now so it might have to wait!:(

  2. Happy Independence Day, Charlotte!
    Your treats look so yummy and festive! I wanted to make Barbara's cookies, too, but wasn't able to get to it. Bookmarking it for next time. We, also, enjoy watching A Capital Fourth.

    We just got back from our towns firework display and now it's time for our own. My fabulous bro-inlaw has an elaborate display of his own in my mother in-law's back yard. :)

  3. That grown up dessert looks so good!!
