Wow. That is all I can say about my amazing Baking GALS team of 25 fan-freaking-tabulous bakers! I put the call out to some friends, a few message boards, and of course, on Facebook and we put together the biggest Baking GALS team of Round 5!
Our soldier is Brett, and his sister, Lindsay, was part of our baking team as well. Hopefully, Brett has started receiving some of the packages by now, and I'm sure he is one popular guy. Brett, if you're reading this, keep an eye out for about 25 packages in all! They'll be coming your way (wherever that is) for the next few weeks, so enjoy!
To all my wonderful bakers - THANK YOU! I was so excited to receive such an enthusiastic response from friends. I know that Lindsay truly appreciates your hard work, and I know that Brett will, too, as soon as he opens that first box. Thank you to all of your kids, as well! Many of you sent me adorable pictures of you baking with your little munchkins, so good job kids!
