Now it's christmas
It only feels like Christmas after the man at the Ortafrutta says, "She does this every year."

Yesterday was intense. The Pinterest video link made this project look sooooo easy. It didn't help that our pastry bag broke and I had to push each leaf out with a ziplock bag and my thumb. F ran out and got us more butter and green food coloring when times got rough, God bless him. It took about six hours. I opted not to use tweezers to put the silver balls on the tree because that smiley lady in the video may have been a robot with OCD.


I love how they came out though. The cupcakes have upside down ice cream cones on them that are covered with frosting.


Look close and you can see the little ornaments.

My hair is not red except in photographs. I don't know how to fix it. I look like Pippi Longstocking and Raggedy Ann had a love child.
We dropped them off at the pharmacies and with the florists and the magazine seller so far. . .

I love this guy . . I have no idea what his name is.


The ortafrutta people are the best.
