Memorial Day weekend celebration...

Memorial day weekend is here!  I hope everyone celebrates this weekend as a time of remembrance of all the loved ones who are not here anymore, especially our solders who fought for our country and lost theirs lives doing so.

Abigail and I made homemade festive brownies for our cookout today.  I  got the pinwheel cupcake decorations at walmart for $2.00.  Aren't they adorable?

You can kind of see my kitchen cabinets in this picture.  I promise I will show the whole kitchen when its finally done!
