Aurora Turns 3!!!!

On December 6th, Aurora turned Three years old...
First she celebrated on Wednesday after church with Mimi and Papa. She had a mini version of the cake that she would have on her birthday. The pictures from this party are on my mom's camera, so I'll have to add them another time. But here is the cake she had that night...
These next pictures are from the 5th. She got to open one of her presents and have some icing when I was decorating the cake for her party...

SATURDAY...... December 6th 2008...
Blowing out her candles. All in one breath.
Her presents.
Kiki had given each of us a piece of paper with a carebear picture on it and all we had to do was add water, and just like magic, the picture came to life with color. The kids had a blast, and well, so did I!!

Pin the Crown on the princess. Auri won, but all the kids got a prize!

Ezzy carried her crown like a true princess, on her head!!!

Isaac, Jackson and Nico enjoying their lunch and some joyous laughter!!!Opening gifts, this one was from Jackson!
From Heidi, Mia and Nico...
From Mommy...
She'd been asking me for about 6 months for a violin. So with the money I earned from the cake you recently saw here, I bought her one. It is of course used (maybe a dozen times), and as you can see it is full sized. She loves it!!!
From Kiki and uncle Tim, Isaiah, Isaac and Esther-Faith...
The girls crashed after the long day. Watching the movie Cars...

Now that you've seen lots of pictures up to now, I will do my best to keep my blog updated more often. Have an Amazing day!!!

God Bless!!

Random Photos...

This is was the Friday night before Heather and Hannah moved to Brooklyn, New York.  Hannah and her friend Ava were playing with Auri and Jackson.

This is just a random picture of Auri and Jackson eating suckers and hanging out under a blanket on the couch with Mommy!
This was a day quite a while ago, she had asked me to put her hair in a ponytail.  So I did.  And just couldn't get over how adorable she looked with a little tail on top of her head!

50th Wedding Anniversary

On October 4th I did this cake for a 50th Wedding Anniversary.  But the story behind it is the cool part.  This couple eloped 50 years ago, and never had a wedding reception or even more, a cake.  So as a surprise for them at their 50th Anniversary party, some people wanted to have a minister their so they could renew their vowes, and wanted them to have a cake.  I was very honored to have been asked to make this cake.  To be a part of this very special occasion was awesome!!!  Here is the cake....

Community Cookout

On Sunday September 14th the winds from the hurricane visited us here in Ohio.  On Monday the 15th everyone in my community decided instead of throwing away all the stuff from their freezers, we would have a cookout.  We set up two grills and a makeshift firepit. Grilled steaks, burgers, and pork.  We started around 6pm and hung out until about 9:30 when it was too dark for even candles to light out night and the kids needed to go to bed.  A few of the younger guys from the neighborhood brought out some instruments and sang and played around the fire.  It was a great deal of fun!!!  One of the guys had an extra drum that was the perfect size for Auri.  Here are some pictures of her enjoying her gift of music with everyone else!!

Aurora and Hannah!

Auri Jammin out!!!

Heather and myself.  This is the only picture I have of us two together...

Auri and I were trying to get a picture together!

Keep watching.  More pictures to come......

Been Too Long

Well, we have a virus on our home computer, and then we got rid of the internet at the house, and well, I haven't taken the time to go to anyone else's house to update my blog.  Sorry about the lapse!  I'll have to update a few at a time.
Okay, so today is Aurora's 3rd birthday, so I will be taking pictures at her party to post, but for now, I will put some older pictures up.....

Last Night!

Well, as is becoming the norm, Jackson didn't take a nap yesterday. So after a long day of playing in and outside, cleaning the car out with mommy and going to the Highbanks Metro Park, he was swamped. We were watching one of the best movies of all time (according to me anyway), and he was coloring. So we left him alone. Well, let's just say, he could make it all night. And finally fell asleep at 10:40pm. Well past his bed time. And this is how he fell asleep....

He didn't even wake up when Aaron picked him up. We tried to get him to go potty before laying him down, no luck. He was so cute. It reminded me of the pictures of when Karin (my sister) would fall asleep while reading a book when she was little. Cute!!!

Have a Fabulous Day!!!
