Colourful confetti

...on delicious chocolate cupcakes!  Made fifteen of these cuties last night for my sis-in-law, and reserved a special one for my eldest son, Javaughn.  Here's why - yesterday Javaughn received a classroom achievement award for "making significant progress in his reading".  Significant is definitely the highlighted word here.  Let's just say he is now reading a couple of years above his age :-).  Lui and I are sooo proud of our boy because we know this has been quite a challenging area for him.  His persistence in the past couple of months, diligently reading for half an hour to an hour a day, really paid off.  It's wonderful to see that he now knows and appreciates 'hard work' and its rewards.  As parents, we like to see our children give things a valiant try and not quitting at the first sight of defeat.  Like my favourite verse goes, "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength" (Phil.4v13).  This has been true in my life, and I share it with you because it really has helped me face some of the most challenging circumstances that came my way - I'm sure it will do the same for you.

This single cupcake was made with lots of joy and love.  It symbolises how proud we are of him and what he has accomplished.  I showed it to him this morning and he looks forward to eating it after school, with a nice cup of hot chocolate.  Here are some fun pics I took this morning that really made my mouth water...ahhh, yum-ehh!!

Hope you enjoyed this post!  Have a wonderful Wednesday and drop by again soon!
