Colorful and Yummy:)

Saturday, August 20, 2011

Last week I had some sugar cookie mix that I had been meaning to use up. So I sat Savi on the counter and she jumped at the chance to help me. She helped mix the ingredients and then picked out the shapes to cut out. I have a huge tub of different shapes, so I just said she could pick whatever. We had everything from fish, dinosaurs, hearts, letters, etc. After they baked, I had neon food coloring for our icing. She would tell me which color to do each one and then she of course got to add sprinkles. I had a really good time doing this with her! Baby C helped by taste testing:)

Such a big girl:)

Dream Come True!

Monday, August 15, 2011

After finding out I was going to have a girl, I definitely had a dream of my beautiful little girl taking dance. (I'm a dance teacher) I bought a few outfits for her and they came in the mail this weekend. She was very excited to try them on and mommy's dreams came true:) She loved them and got so upset when I made her take them off for bath time. (Sobbing) "Mommy, I want to be a ballerina." It was hard not to laugh. I will be ecstatic when I get to see her take her first dance class next week:) Even if it ends up not being her thing later in life, it still is a proud moment to see her take class right now.

Love her!

This past weekend was another quiet weekend. Saturday was Charlie's dad's birthday. We didn't get a chance to see him to celebrate, but somebody did paint him something special:) She loves to paint! Savannah is finally moving on to a few other shirts for daily wear. She definitely prefers her Hello Kitty ones, but we can explain they are in the wash and not have a major melt down. That is improvement people:) She is into putting the word "so" in front of words. I'm SO hungry, I'm SO hot (we all are honey), I'm SO tired (that's my jk). They get funnier everyday!

We just did the usual play around the house, grocery store, play outside with the water toys, etc kinda weekend. But I love it! Baby Charlie is starting to imitate more and is so stinking cute! If you hand him a brush, he will brush his hair. He can turn a light switch on and off. He is really into pointing right now to. I keep telling him it isn't polite. He is feeding himself a little bit with a spoon. Lastly he takes anything that could kinda be a phone and is holding it up to his ear. I love watching all these fun milestones!

On the 4th, Baby C turned 11 months! That means in 1 MONTH I will have a 1 year old and a week later a 3 year old. Whoa!! that is just crazy to me;)

Because of the above and a few other things, I feel like I'm in a tunnel. I have 2 birthday parties to plan. Two completely different themes and two different days that I have to have the house clean and all perfect for my precious kiddos. Because they deserve it! But man does that stress me out! Also right before there birthdays is a big consignment sale that I participate in. I volunteer and I consign old stuff. I make really good money and get things I need, but it is a lot of work! You have to prepare everything yourself like tagging, hanging, and dropping off all your items. It is always worth it, but definitely a task.

I think the next two months are just going to be plain crazy. I can't wait til I see the light at the end of the tunnel. Wish me luck!

Here is a random assortment of updates:) We have been busy as usual so I have managed, of course, to not blog for a whole week. I hate when I do that. Oh well.....

I think I have mentioned before I make cake toppers. Mostly for wedding cakes, but they are super cute on birthday, anniversary, or babyshower cakes even. I recently got an offer from a florist to be able to put one of them in her store as basically free advertisement. I didn't want it to just lay there so I bought some fondant and styrofoam and made a fake little cake for my topper. I am not cake expert and this was tough. But I think it turned out alright....

I also wanted business cards and a real website. So my hubby (being super good at this stuff) made me a logo and a website! What do you think?

Savannah is into make up. A LOT! lol Every morning while I'm getting ready....."mommy, I do make-up." She mostly just plays with the lip glosses. It is really cute:)

Baby C is finding more and more new things he can eat. Sunday morning he enjoyed some of his Nanie's (my mom) homemade banana blueberry bread!
