A great new year!

We kicked off our new year in September with many new faces!

Our first meeting was on September 13th when we shared our favorite thing for being a Mom.  Answers ranged from workout videos to iPhones to slings to wipes.  We heard it all and I am sure we all agreed that they were all great answers!  We also learned how to make the most of our old stuffed animals by making them into bookends!

On September 27th we had another great meeting with over 20 Moms!  We had a wonderful guest speaker, Carolyn Benitez, who showed us how to decorate cupcakes like a pro.  She showed us some great tips and tricks.  The main thing she passed on was that it is all about the frosting tip you use, which you can pretty much get at any department store. Carolyn gave us great encouragement and said that if we practice the simple techniques, not only will we decorate some great cupcakes but we can also save money by staying away from the bakery department!  I know I will be trying to do some decorating myself!
