I've spent my sewing time this week with a pile of mending and "have to do" sewing, but it feels good to have it done. I did get a bit of fun sewing in with a couple of trick or treat bags for the littlest ones here.
We took some of the little ones to the pumpkin patch this week and had a great time.
We continue to celebrate October birthdays here. I had a request from one of the granddaughters for a princess cake. The problem was that she wanted one of our family's favorite cakes which is a yellow cake with hot fudge drizzled over the top. I usually make it in a rectangular pan. I decided to get creative and made a bundt cake, stuck a doll in it and make a gathered skirt to cover the plain cake. Then when we served it we just removed the doll, sliced the cake and drizzled the chocolate over each piece. It worked out perfectly.
The birthday girl was pleased. That's what matters.
Over the weekend we attended the children's school gala at the Reagan Library. It was a spectacular evening for the event and dinner was served underneath Air Force One. It was quite impressive to look up at the massive plane above the table.

After RNG selected two "no reply" comments from my recent Halloween Haunts blog hop, I have finally notified the winner - Angelia (no blog). Hopefully, I will hear back from her soon.
Have a safe and happy Halloween.
