Allen's Hair


So, I was cutting Allen's hair last weekend and he begged and pleaded to have his hair cut like this. I have been telling him "another time" for about 1 1/2 years now. So, since there is no upcoming picture days or anything like that, I caved. Not my favorite hair style but he love love loves it. He came home from school saying "Yeah, now I'm a true rock star, mom. And all my friends say it's the coolest hair in class." So, this is my Allen for the next few weeks until I can't take it anymore and cut it all off. P.S. Sorry the pictures suck.

Batman Cake

I got to do this cake for a friend this weekend. It was a blast to make. This is my first superhero cake ever. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out even though I had to hand cut everything. My favorite part is the Pow, Zap, Bams. Thanks for the opportunity Jamie and happy birthday to her son Trevin.

Allen's Super 7th Birthday

Allen turned 7 this last week and had a super awesome Super Mario themed party. Good times were had by all.
At the party all the boys got mustaches in there bags.

Yes all the boys wore them.

But I would say that Carter wore it best. He really looked like a guy from the 70's.

The kids did a Yoshi egg and spoon race. It was super cute.

The table all set up for the party.

Allen's super awesome Super Mario cake.

I'm proud of this cake. I think it turned out pretty cool.

The Mario head I made.

Bob-omb and a red shell.

Goomba and some super stars.

Mario, but now with a body.

Allen wanted the scene from the game put on his cake.


Opening presents with his friends. They were so funny.

On Allen's real birthday there was school so he took some 1 up cupcakes for his class.


Allen got a special one with a crown. I think he had a pretty great birthday this year.

Super Valentine

We had a great Valentine's Day yesterday. We went with a superhero theme this year. The boys loved it and Carter called them super boys. Allen had to take a mail box to school for his valentines this year. Since we did superhero valentines, he wanted a mail box to match. So, we ended up with a pretty cool super Allen mail box. It was fun making it together. When he took it to school and everyone liked it you could see how proud he was of himself. When I got back from taking the kids to school, Kevin had made a trail of valentines around the house that had funny pick up lines on them. And when I got to the end there was a bouquet of red roses waiting for me. It was very thoughtful and nice. Also later that day my best friend Amelia had sent flowers for me. So, I got double the love this year. We finished off the day with some red heart shaped pancakes for dinner. It was as SUPER fun Valentine's Day.

I was up making these all night and in my delirium I could not resist making this silly video.

These are the valentines and roses that Kevin got me.

My beautiful ? flowers I got from Amelia.

Carter's Glasses

Carter got his eyes checked this week and we found out that he is far sighted and has a severe double astigmatism. The poor kid needs glasses and the doctor said that he sees everything elongated. So, everyone looks like long skinny zombie people. When he put on his glasses for the first time he looked at me for about a minute straight. Then he looked around the room pointing at things and saying "wow". All night the look in his eyes has been like a whole new world opened up to him. So, I guess the poor kid really did need glasses. Now when Evan turns 2 and gets his glasses all the boys will have glasses. My little family of nerds.

Carter and his first pair of glasses.

Snow!

We got a bunch of snow the last couple of days and the boys have just loved it. They have been playing outside several times a day and for hours at a time. It's so fun to watch them all out having a blast. We didn't build a snowman this year but we did go sledding. I love the snow. It makes for some awesome family moments.

Evan love love loved the snow this year. Just look how happy he is.

Evan had so much fun sledding. No one was allowed to go down without him on the sled. Then he insisted on being pulled back up.

Allen and Carter had some friends come with us. So, I think they would have stayed all day and night.

When Evan didn't get to go on someone's sled he would try to sled down the hill on his bum or tummy.

Carter was so focused and in the sledding zone for pretty much the whole time.

Evan doing his best impersonation of a seal on an ice flow. I think it's pretty accurate.

Up at the top of the hill, I spent most of the time chatting with my ladies and giving kids a push start.

As always the hardest part of sledding is the hike back up.

This year Carter was all about sledding. If he couldn't get on with someone he just went by himself. He is getting so big. So, this is him coming down alone (commentary by Evan).

More Cake

This is the new cake I just made for a girl who was turning 15. She is really into crafts and she wanted the young women's colors. It was so much fun to make.
The cake all put together and done.
Just some of the little details. I had a good time doing this one.
