SunDrop Cookies.....

for "Unkie" Wilson Wanamaker. Auntie Pris asked me to make these adorable "SUNDROP" sugar cookies for her, to have at his "40years with Dr.Pepper Celebration" today!
I had to hand-cut each one, because I didn't have a bottle cookie cutter. I think they turned out adorable:)
Congrats "Unkie" Wilson for 40 years at Dr. Pepper. WOW, what an accomplishment:)

Please Pray.......

Please remember to keep my "MIL", Brenda Wanamaker in your prayers. PaHal called us this morning, & said she woke up around 2a.m. with sharp pains in her arm and was having chest pains.
He took her to the ER, & they kept her stable in ICU until they could contact her heart doctor at St. Thomas. She has always had heart problems, beginning in 1980's with her first open-heart surgery, then another in the late 1990's to replace artificial valves.
The doctor had her rushed to St.Thomas a couple of hours ago......possible blockage in arteries....not really sure until she gets there and more tests are run.
*With prayer & God all things are possible*

Summer PaintingProject #1.....

The little ole' table that sat in the kitchen,

Quite adorable......so SOUTHERN LIVING:)
Accented with a great cookbook, a beautiful quote, and a fresh bouquet of herbs from the backyard:)

Wedding Favors for Lindsey Bewick & Jon Kidd.....

A wonderful friend, Ms. Libby Bewick, asked me several months ago to make their family's favorite, MOLASSES, cookies as favors for Miss Lindsey's wedding. I was so thrilled to be asked to be a part of such a beautiful day:)
It took me 2 days to bake 200 Molasses cookies, but it was worth seeing the smile on Libby's face:)
Lindsey and Jon had an "All-Star" wedding in Nashville. Music City was the theme, and the Scarritt Bennett was the scene!!! A cowboy hat filled with all kinds of TENNESSEE products ( RC Cola in a glass bottle, MoonPie, Cracker Barrel treats, & my Molasses cookies), was placed in the guests rooms upon checking in.....ALL 75 hotel rooms provided by the brides parents, Dr. Kent & Libby Bewick:)
I placed the cookies in cello bags. Then I used a "ROPE" font to make the little cards that I attached with raffia & twine:) I think they were adorable:) Very Country & Cute:)

Thanks again Libby:) I know the wedding was as beautiful as you and your family:) I love you all:)

.....below are some "goodies" that I've not had the time to post recently due to life's chaotic, everyday hustle & bustle:) May & the beginning of June has been a little crazy around the Wanamaker house. Both of our boys have "graduated" from their respected grades, and are now enjoying their summer...swimming, visiting friends & family, & sleeping late:) Ah....the joy of being a kid:) LIFE IS GOOD:)
RELAY FOR LIFE was a HUGE SUCCESS, but with that also comes ALOT of hard work getting everything organized.....but it was definitely worth it, because WarrenCo. set another record this year, with $175,000 being raised & money is still coming in!!! That is "CRAZY AWESOME", & humbling at the same time:)
Summer also means working around the house & getting everything washed & cleaned for all the "visitors" for cookouts & birthday parties:) Terry & I have pressure-washed the house, sidewalks, driveway, pool, pool deck, and lawn furniture. We also have started gardening at GrannyMas.....& that is a task all of it's own:)
But I am also hoping to get some special projects finished before summer is over, but I'm just going to enjoy each & everyday with the kids, and take each day at a time:) I hope you and your family enjoys all summer has to offer...BE SAFE & HAVE FUN:)



.....a little "THANK YOU" favorite for the lovely & talented Ms. Ashley Freeman-Newport:)

I love you Ash:)

Lots of MOLASSES......
