Cinco De Mayo to you!

Happy Cinco De Mayo folks!

I'm getting ready to head to my twins classroom this afternoon with a huge plate of fruit screws. I'm one of the Mom's hosting a Cinco De Mayo party for the 1st graders. Don't these look good!Its also my Mom's 70th birthday today so I've been planning a huge surprise party for her. My Mom is great and has been a super role model for me. I could not have asked for more support/guidance through out my life so spending some of my time putting together a celebration for her is the least I could do. She is also finally retiring from over 45 years of teaching. If it wasn't for her sticking up for me and my dyslexia issues I probably wouldn't have ever gone to college. So..I guess since Mothers Day is around the corner. Here, Here for my mom!
Just a few shots of things from this week. Batter bowls and plates.
I have mugs and tiles drying as well. Its nice to almost have my finger back in work order!

Nice stuff! I like the thick rim on those batter bowls. I have been working on a few of those myself. How big are they? (I think I made mine a bit small) And do you not put a regular handle on them? Very cool. Happy birthday & such to your mom!
