Cougar Town

OK so maybe not Cougar Town but definitely Leopard City


My cute nail girl Sara did such a great job and she painted them all by hand!  Yes by hand!  I have gotten at least 5 complements on them.  I think I will do animal print forever.  Do you think she can do fish scales?

On a side note, Amber might be having a heart attack right now...I had better burn that Old Navy sweater for her just to equal things out!

70 and Counting

I was tricked, by my cousin, into making cupcakes for a baby shower.

Not just 12 or 24 cupcakes
70 cupcakes!

Chocolate cake w/vanilla butter cream
Vanilla/Almond cake w/chocolate butter cream
Fresh banana cake w/honey cinnamon cream cheese frosting

Alex Rides, Finally

Yesterday we got a video from Rachel, Alex's mom.  To our elated surprise, it was Alex riding a bike!  Frankie and I tried to teach him all summer long, on grass, on a hill, with both of us running along side, with grandpa, but none of it worked.  When Frankie called Alex to ask him what happened, Alex simply said that the seat on his bike at our house was too high.  That was that!  We can not wait to see him do it in person.  What a great gift, 2 days before his 7th birthday.  We are so proud!  Actual pictures soon to follow.

Amber's Birthday

Always well dressed and looking her best, strangely I have no pictures of Amber on her birthday.

The food was wonderful and the company was even better!  Love Your Guts!

And Yet More Cupcakes

I made these for my friend's daughter.  The fish and the gems are both rings, since it was a jewelry themed party.
