Graduation Cup Cakes

Here is a cute cup cake idea that I did for a graduation party. A lot of my friends are celebrating graduations - from Kindergarten to High School and College graduations. Here is a fun treat idea that I did a couple of years ago and I thought I'd share it again.

For a graduation party with a bunch of friends, I made Chocolate Cup Cakes with graduation caps on them. Blue and Gold are Meridian High School colors and Blue and Florescent Green is Mountain View's school colors.
I used:
 Unwrapped mini peanut butter cups for the base of the hat.
2 sections of a Hershey's candy bar make a square for the top of the hat. With a dab of frosting to secure the top of the hat to the base of the hat.

I used Rainbow Twizzlers for the tassel. I cut them to a good length and cut the Twizzler into ridges that represent the tassel colors.

They turned out really cute!

Cadet Tymber Honoring Veterans

 This year our very own Cadet Tymber participated in the Opening Ceremonies at the Field of Hero's in Idaho to honor fallen soldiers.

Each marker is a soldier lost in Iraq and Afghanistan. There are over 6000 markers in the field and each one has a name on it. It is very humbling to walk through the field an see all of the soldiers who lost their lives for our freedom. 
 We are so proud of Tymber's service in the Idaho Wing Cadet Program and her willingness to serve in this capacity.
 We are grateful for those who have given their lives for the freedom we enjoy in this country. Memorial Day is a day to remember the sacrifices made by our veterans and an opportunity to pay our respects to those who have served in the armed forces. 

I love this quote: "Land of the free, because of the brave."
Thank you to all who serve or who have served in the US Military. Thank you for your sacrifice and courage which keep us safe and let us have the freedoms we enjoy in this great country.

Cadet Tymber, we couldn't be more proud of you and your service too! 

 The Idaho Field of Heroes Memorial is a one-of -a kind tribute to every service member who has died in Iraq or Afghanistan since 9/11. As of April 20, 2015 that number totals 6,832.

On Memorial Day Weekend, May 23 - 25, the soccer field at Century High School are transformed into a temporary memorial resembling national cemeteries such as Arlington in Washington, D.C. Each marker is handmade, painted and affixed with the name, rank and the date of death of an American Service member who paid the ultimate price.

The markers are carefully placed into the ground, and once the field has been constructed it is dedicated as hallowed ground, and open to the public for those who wish to pay their respects at no charge.

So Green!

What am I loving about all this spring rain?
Everything is soooooo green!
 A look at my back yard from my patio. 

It smells good too with the Iris'  and roses blooming.
And now the honeysuckle vine is starting to have lots of little white honeysuckle flowers. 

Beautiful and aromatic!

 I love the peacefulness of my back yard and everything that is blooming and smelling so good. Not to mention the birds singing.

My Dean's List Son

Once again Brady is on the Dean's List. He has consistently been on the Dean's list throughout his college years! He is such a smart kid. I also have to say that not only does he go to school full time, but he also works full time job too! This is the way to do it and not get yourself in debt for a college education! He inspires me everyday with his ambition! He will certainly go far in life! 

This is what he posted on facebook: I astound myself yet again. It turns out that I do very well at this thing called college. I never push myself to get on the Dean's List, and every semester I feel like I'm doing incredibly average that I'm almost positive that this is the semester I don't make it. Then after everything is finally graded, I'm amazed at how well I did. Looks like I'm still going to be a Dean's List kid. Cheers to another surprisingly successful semester.

This is the official letter from University of Utah!!

Congratulations for making the Dean’s List for Spring Semester, 2015.
Final grade submissions are now in and our records show that you earned at least a 3.5 GPA on at least 12 graded credit hours for this semester.  These are the criteria for Dean’s List designation and this will be shown on your official University transcript.
