Playing catch-up

I am getting the feeling that life is always just a game of catch-up; no matter how clever you think you are, you are never going to get ahead of the game. So this post is a catch-up of last week's happenings, about which there is not a lot of interesting stuff to say.

Last week Ariella got her glasses. She is very pleased to be seeing better, and the teasing seems to have lasted just one day (in school, of course, since she is joining the majority at home. Now we can mock Dani for his perfect vision!). She looks adorable and is acting relatively responsible.Not the most fab picture, but it will have to do for now.

Besides last week's hamburger adventure, I also did cookies and cupcakes for a sweet sixteen party in Ra'anana. The cupcakes came out very cute - chocolate mini-cupcakes with pink vanilla frosting and a blossom accent, and red velvet mini-cupcakes with white vanilla frosting and daisy accents.

The cookies on the platters (yes, already wrapped, sorry Abba - I forget until it is too late!) are thin mint hearts, peanut butter bars, sugar cookie ganache sandwiches, butter pecan turtle bars, linzer cookies, and polka dot cookies.

Shabbat platters were the same assortment.

Shana and Ayelet have both recently attended plays organized by their English classes - Another Antigone for Shana, and The Chosen for Ayelet. We are in the final throes of choosing a high school for the Donald, so stay tuned. I am working on cupcakes and a cake for a birthday order, as well as a bat mitzvah order. Then I am sure I will be playing catch-up again!

Wish me luck!
