Are you ready for some FOOTBALL!!!???

"Hey guys! Good game! High five!"
Paying close attention!

Takin' a break!

Down, Set!

Isaac- ready for the hand off!

Focus! Focus!

Ike had his first flag football game of the season! He did GREAT!!!!! He has played for the last two years. This year, he is really understanding what the game is all about...... positions, plays- all that football stuff. He scored one touchdown, got an extra point and pulled a flag. Best of all, he hustled during the entire game and really gave it his all! Can you tell I am a proud football momma!?! I came home a little hoarse from screaming and yelling so much! BTW, his team is the Patriots so if you have anything royal blue with the Patriots logo laying around the house, send it my way! Next weekend, I planned to be all decked out in football fan garb! Woo Hoo! Go team go!

Finally! Spa Birthday party pictures!

This year BaileyRose's birthday party was a spa theme. With the amazing help of some priceless girls from our church, everyone received a pedicure and manicure, made a necklace, customized lip gloss and scented soap! Somewhere in there, the girls ate cake.... everyone got their own cake and watched the new "Hannah Montana" movie. Around midnight, everyone settled down and went to sleep. In the morning we sent them off with muffins and smoothies.

A Cake Weekend....

There was quite a delicous smell in our house this weekend! On Saturday my friend, Christy, had a surprise 40th birthday party for her husband. They were expecting a lot of people so I made a double layer chocolate fudge sheet cake with milk chocolate icing between the layers. The top of the cake was iced with the same milk chocolate icing and then chocolate sandwich cookie crumbs were added on top of that..... hope he likes chocolate! The tombstone (made of french vanilla cake) was set down into the cake and covered with fondant. We had a real adventure getting the cake out to Christy's house! Let me tell, you this thing was heavy! Michael is the perfect driver for this mission! Thanks Mike!
Then, on Sunday, another friend Michelle, had a sending off party for her oldest daughter before she went to the army. This cake was made of french vanilla and vanilla icing.
After all the powdered sugar was wiped off and the dishes were done we started planning the next cake! Michael has become a wonderful consultant when it comes to the construction of the cakes. Our next cake will be a cabin at Little Red River for a birthday party. I will be sure to post pictures!
