Brownies. And brothers.

Carrie is moved into her new home and nicely settled. This weekend she hosted a housewarming party and asked me to make brownies for the occassion. I had a plan...and it included cuteness.
.
My brother {and Carrie's dear uncle} traveled from California to be here this weekend. He stopped by our house yesterday morning before the party and when he saw the pan of brownies I could see his eyes light up...so I offerred him one. {This after warning Doug not to eat too many before the party because I wanted to make sure I had enough for a plate full!}
.
I made little flags using toothpicks and Happy Tape and knew I had to wait till we got to Carrie's house to put the flags in - too difficult to wrap with plastic wrap and keep fresh with the flags on top. I took my camera to Carrie's to get one more shot of the brownies before serving them up. {eh-hm...because it's not just brownies, it's a blog post!!!}
.
My brother was hovering close by as I removed the plastic wrap from the brownies, little flags in one hand and my camera close by. Before I knew it, he'd grabbed a corner brownie and took a bite before my photo was taken. Ugh! My natural instincts still wanted me to call out, "Mom!!!"
.

Oh well. I took a picture of the other end of the plate just for my own satisfaction.

The party was a success and it was great to see
friends and family gathering in my daughter's
home, filling her space with love and laughter;
congratulating her and showering her with gifts
and well wishes.
And a partial plate of brownies.

Brother or Bother? They never grow up - never! Still, those brownies do look rather irresistible... Love the cute flags too!
So pleased that Carrie's party went well - I wish her all the best in her new little home.

What is it about boys and brownies! I know a lot of men who really aren't all that much into sweets, but they all seem to love brownies. Very cute story.

Having eaten that first one, I'm surprised he didn't offer to eat one from the other side too. Just to even it up a bit, of course!
They look delicious and the flags are just the finishing touch.
Pleased to hear she is settled into her new home. Hope she is very happy there.

This post reminds me of a story I wrote when I was really little (my mom saved it: "I went to the beach with my sisters and my big bother." And I like your idea: PLAN for cuteness!

Very best of luck to Carrie in her new home. I'm glad she had a great housewarming party.

Delicious looking brownies ... I think brothers are the same the world over! Still, it's given you a great story to scrap! Happy home to Carrie. x

Mom said...

I hear you, Sweetie! From the sound of the other posts, I'm not the only mom who failed in the fine art of raising boys to NOT be greedy when it comes to brownies (and other things sweet!). Yummy looking ones at that! Glad the party was a success--wish I could have been there! xo

Carrie Rosalind said...
