Chocolate and Cowboys

Well catchy title huh? Anywho, last night was our Dessert Auction at church! What a fun time! They raised over 5K and yes I mean thousand! The teen group is going to Mississippi for the summer to help with Hurricane Katrina rebuilding! So I made a yummy chocolate cake and it sold for over $200! I was really excited about that. I did get an order and another on the way for making some for a couple folks. And on to the Cowboy! Well our cowboy turns three on Wednesday! What a fun little boy! He truly thinks he's a cowboy and has been heartbroken that he's outgrown his boots. So his ranchhand(me) has bought him a new pair to surprise him for his birthday! And yes, we are having a roundup on Saturday! Can't wait!

I am not surprised AT ALL that your cake sold for $200. Can you mail those cookies with the icing on top?? JK!! I still dream about those at times!! :)

Jenny-Actually I probably can! The chocolate ones with the chocolate icing right?

jenny biz said...

YES!!!! Are you stinkin' SERIOUS???? Don't tease me like that Melanie Wiginton!!!:)
I seriously just got tears in my house thinking about those cookies!!
I will use the excuse that it has been a rough day. Malaya graduated from Kinder just a few hours ago. What a whip!!! I think I was the only mom crying so hard I was making noises!!:)

I hate it when I cry like that! The cry where you slobber and your nose will not stop running! Ugghhh! And yes I was serious about the cookies. Unless of course you just want me to give you the recipe. Funny how I knew exactly which ones you were talking about!

jenny biz said...
