Sweet to my soul

I love this time of year for so many reason, but most importantly convention. My soul and my spirit are in need of renewing! But I also love baking for convention. This year we are going to be with my parents and my brother and his family at Mt. Peak. Special days are in store! These are just some of the goodies I am baking this weekend to take.
