First, I have to say that I have a great mother and I owe much of who I am today to her. I love you, Mom!

We were up and at ’em early today making bread pudding for Syntyche’s Baptism/Graduation party. 

Jack and Max were up with me and gave me Mother’s Day presents. 

   
   
We are so very proud of our Syntyche. 

   
 Grace and Lydia made 150 gourmet cupcakes. The names were ridiculously long; Vanilla bean with a raspberry compote, chocolate with chocolate ganache and salted caramel filling, lemon with blackberry buttercream frosting and chocolate filled with ganache and chocolate buttercream frosting. Grace was too shy to be in the picture.
