Several times we find ourselves saying, "It always rains when you're off of work!!". But not the past couple of days. Jeff's days off have been beautiful. I am so happy. Jaden has spent so much time outside. He loves it! Here are some pictures of our time today at the playground! We are so lucky to have a nice school near us with a very clean playground.

I thought making cupcakes would be fun, but it has caused so much! I can't stop eating them. Well, it's not like I have eaten a bunch, just two. But one is too many!!!! They are really good and they make for good comfort food. Also, Jaden won't stop asking for one. He talked about them all day yesterday and woke up today asking for one! Maybe I won't make these anymore! I thought about making some for Easter, but maybe I won't!

I made cupcakes for the fam today! Jaden loves them!! He made a huge mess, but so did I when I made them, so I didn't get upset! I just felt like making some "Spring" cupcakes. I thought they turned out okay. I hope everyone else is enjoying some Spring treats!

Well, yesterday was a beautiful day but I was sick!! I didn't really get to enjoy it. Jaden and Cassidy did get to play outside and Jaden even got a blizzard last night! I think he really enjoyed that.

Not much of anything happened today. We went to Hobby Lobby and Kohls then, out to Grandma and Papa's. I found a present for Cassidy and Jaden found the cutest little chicken and singalong book. He loves it!!! You can see it here: http://www.sandraboynton.com/sboynton/boyntonplush.html
What was really cool was that he already has a little one that looks just like it and he said "Look, it is chicken's mommy!!". I had to get it for him once he said that!
I have Cassidy's invitations all finished and they will be sealed and sent soon! It was fun making them. I can't wait for everyone to get them. If you need directions, please email us or call.
I hope everyone is having a good week and I will post some more cute pictures soon!!! Tomorrow is Jeff's day off so I am hoping to get some stuff done!

I had a great weekend. It all started off with St. Patrick's Day! It was so fun. A leprechaun visited our house the night before and did all kinds of things. He colored our milk and applesauce green! He also left Jaden a shamrock cookie cutter and lined all of our shoes up with chocolate coins in them! How cool is that! He was thrilled! We made shamrock cookies and they were very good! I also started on Cassidy's birthday invitations. I have them almost finished! They are so cute!
Yesterday, Jaden, Jeff, and Cassidy took me to the nearest outlet mall for my birthday (that is coming up!)and let me buy some clothes. I couldn't help but buy a few clothes for the kids. I did buy myself a lot of new shirts! I hardly have any since I have lost so much weight. I did most of my shopping at the Gap outlet. I love that store! They also bought me the Wilton 2007 yearbook. That is a great book! It is really inspiring me to make more cakes! They also took me to Panera Bread for supper. That is my favorite restaurant! I had a mushroom pizza, it was very good! We had a great time! I will post some more pictures later!

Shopping for kids clothing is so expensive, so I went to Once Upon a Child today. I spent a lot but only got a few outfits for Cassidy and a shirt for Jaden. I did get Cassidy's Easter shoes, but I haven't gotten her dress yet, isn't that funny! Now I have to match the dress with the shoes. I can't wait to get her all dressed up!
Jeff took the cake I made to work today. Lord knows we don't need it in our house!!! It did turn out pretty good for it falling apart when I stacked them. I had to glue the cake together with buttercream. It worked though. I am hoping I can get good enough at this to start selling my cakes. I would love to make cakes for other people!! I don't know when course 2 will start, but I am hoping soon!

So, we ventured to the license branch today. I always dread going there. We had to get the license plates renewed. I wanted a personalized plate, but we have to put a request in a year before. So, I will get my personalized plate next year! The kids waited patiently and it turned out not being as stressful as usual!

Well, I am sure some of you have been wondering when I am going to add more scrapbook pages over there to the side! I have been so busy and my desk has been a mess! But I plan I getting back to it soon, maybe tonight!! I also need to make my cakes for next week's class. I should also do a practice one. I am excited about the next one. It is very pretty
It has been super nice outside. I took the kids out to play yesterday, and we also played today! It was so fun! Cassidy loves swinging and riding in the wagon. Jaden loves playing soccer and swinging! I would love to get him a trampoline soon. They are so expensive, I was hoping to find a used one somewhere!

Does everyone remember the post awhile back with the cute pink and green bunny bracelet? Well, I have looked everywhere and searched online for those bunny beads. I can't find them anywhere! The lady isn't selling them right now, but I emailed her in hopes that she would relist it. I really want it for Cassidy for Easter. When I emailed her, I noticed she is from England, so I probably couldn't get those beads here. What a bummer!!!!!
I have class is about 30 minutes. We are making a clown cake tonight. I will be sure to post it!!! Wish me luck!

Most of you know that I am a huge Clay Aiken fan! I am not ashamed to admit it! I went to his concert Summer of 2005 and also got to attend his Christmas concert in December of 2006. He started the Christmas tour on December 1st and we went to the December 2nd concert. At the first concert he had missed the last note of his last song! A tragedy really! The next night, he sang it beautifully. I was watching it again today and decided I needed to share it with everyone!

This weekend flew by! Jaden had his last basketball game on Saturday. It was a makeup day for one of the days it snowed. He had a good time. He didn't make any baskets, but he tried. He didn't play his best, but I wanted him to have fun. Now, it is time for soccer. I don't know when that starts, but I will let everyone know. He is VERY excited about that.

Well, sort of. This is my first cake during my Wilton cake course. Pretty cool. I didn't realize how much work goes into a cake. This actually took a long time. If you think about making the cake, making the icing, coloring all of the icing, putting it all into bags with different tips, putting the cake onto a stable surface, icing the cake, decorating the cake, and finally cleaning up all of that mess!!!! This was all especially long for me tonight because I had to haul all of it to class and decorate it there. It was worth it though. I am proud of myself!!!

We decided it would be better to have Cassidy's party on Saturday, which would be May 5th!! I wanted to let everyone know! If you are planning on coming and staying the night, we can help you find a good motel, just ask!

We have decided Cassidy's birthday party will be on May 6, 2007. I am not sure of a time yet, but I wanted to give everyone a heads up! I will be sending out invitations around the middle of April.
I bought something the other day that has really paid off! Sometimes I buy things not knowing if it will really be used or not. Isn't nice when you buy something and it actually gets used all of the time! I bought this:
Maddy just loves it!!! She lays in it almost all day! I can't believe it! I am sure she is wondering why it took me over 6 years to buy her her own bed!!!!! She absolutely loves, and I do too! She doesn't try to get on our bed anymore!!!!
