Bluebonnets, Birthday, and Beach!

Cady

Cady didn’t like sitting the bluebonnets even on a towel or on Daddy’s lap. She just wanted to throw rocks in the creek like the big kids.

Quinn

Quinn was a really good model for me. We walked over to the park one moning while Cady and Daddy were still sleeping. She sat nice and pretty for me even though she really wanted to chase a bird. After photos, we chased the bird together.

Chocolate Cake Strawberries

My Yaya said she wanted a BIG cake for her birthday. Last year’s cake was the size of the first two tiers, so this year had a third tier!

Cady

Cady didn’t want to touch the sand with her bare feet, but she loved playing in the sand and in the water. She kept asking for “more, more” and pointing behind us when we were leaving.

Life Lately…

Cady

At first I was having blogging withdrawals since my carpal tunnel issues, but I’m starting to get used to not posting and reading. Sorry I haven’t been a good bloggy friend and visiting your sites. The problems have slight improvements if I don’t spend time at my computer since I once spent a lot of time here and sat improperly. I’ve also realized that the way I sleep and do other activities is contributing to the problem. It’s been a major setback on all the things I wanted to accomplish this new year (like learn Photoshop, crochet, make more cakes), but today I’m feeling okay about that.

Quinn at Oyster Creek

We just did the usual types of activities, so nothing crazy happened while I wasn’t writing besides having a great time at the Barney Live, Birthday Bash Tour concert. We went to the library where a little girl kept bringing Tim toys and another little girl wanted to hug Cady with such enthusiasm that they both nearly fell over a few times had I not been cloes enough to catch them. I also went to an indoor play place where I met up with a couple of friends and their daughers. One of them kept thinking my legs were her mom’s and running up to hug them.

Sweet Shot Day

I’m planning on taking an online class for 12 weeks (with about a two week break halfway) at a local junior college, which I’ve read the syllabus for and find pretty interesting. I hope to start in February if we have the money, and if not, I’m sure we will by the time the March class starts. I really think I’ll learn a lot and enjoy it. I’ve also been reading some great books from the library and plan on starting the “assignments” in one book soon.

It’s funny because all throughout college, I was so certain of my major, and now I have no interest in the subject that I got my degree in and have totally different interests. Now I’m like, “why didn’t I study this in college?” Well I know why: because I wasn’t interested in the same things back then.

The “winter” is still bi-polar here. Yesterday it was 70 degrees, but they predict snow for the end of the week.

Tim's cake for Ian

My husband’s friend (who is his “big brother” from his fraternity but is actually younger than him) requested a cake, but he was the one who made it since my hands still need rest. I think he did a great job.

One bad cake and one good cake…

I made two cakes this weekend: one for Easter and one for my yaya’s birthday.

The Easter cake was supposed to be a Peeps bunny, but instead it looked like p**p. Literally. The eyes and nose came out looking like dog stuff. Plus the sprinkles wouldn’t stick. I couldn’t stop laughing once I realized it. We had a good time about it at my parents’ house. It’s a white cake with buttercream icing.

The cake for my yaya turned out pretty cute though. It’s a chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream and royal icing roses.
