Sherryl spent Wednesday evening baking cookies for the children at day care -- 4 dozen carrot-shaped cookies, that is, covered in orange and green frosting. This evening Sherryl produced for an autistic teen she used to care for, Erik, and his friends, little chick cookies. Yellow frosting, colorful sprinkles, and half a jelly bean for the eye yield a third dimension to these barnyard toddlers. Holiday love in the form of homemade confections flow abundant from RaRa this week as she looks forward to celebrating Easter and Nadine's birthday with our family on Sunday.
In recognition of spring's newborn fawns and chicks and lambs, we pay tribute to children's author Beatrix Potter. Bunnies in jackets with brass buttons and forest characters with delightful names like Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle-Duck, and Squirrel Nutkin came to life thanks to the ingenuity and creativity of this remarkable woman. Thank you, Miss Potter, for your charming tales and memorable illustrations.
Happy Easter, everyone!
