And I actually got a scrapbook page done! I was challenged through Kidding Around to "just finish one that has been hanging around". So I did.

I've been trying to get some done with the kids (through Kidding Around again) but it isn't actually working out yet - but we do still have a month to go. We are getting some of the activities done and the pictures taken though.

All in all another good month - fast, but good.

    Noticed you like Cake Boss; not sure if you live close to Toronto but we are having a contest for Mr. Buddy's live show. He's coming here on September 11 and we are having people post recipes on our FB page; we will select a recipe and the winner gets 2 tickets to the show in a candy filled limo!

    If you happen to do any baking you can share it with us here:
