I am way behind on posting things that I would like on here.  It is time to acknowledge my children's birthdays who were in May and July.  Before August I must blog about them.  One of my favorite parts  about celebrating with them is getting to make and bake their birthday cakes.

Jack had a Thomas the Train Birthday. 

Caleb had a Monkey birthday. We celebrated his birthday while on vacation so I opted for cupcakes.  I bought half chocolate from the grocery store and half yummy carrot cake from a local bakery.  Notice that a couple of the cupcakes in the front row were tampered with.  I had hid the cupcakes in the laundry room before the party for safe keeping and later found my daughter in there with the door closed helping herself to a pre-party treat.  She keeps it exciting!

Hannah had a Rainbow party.

Love making cakes and even more love making them for my kiddos.

The day before Hannah turned three I wanted to take a picture of the last day that I would have a one, two, and three year old.  We walked across the street and all my little munchkins were surprisingly cooperative and smiley!  C was excited to get to stand up in a chair, J was happy because his sign was yellow, and H well - she usually enjoys me taking photos.

Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th of July!!

We had a very low key day here celebrating "our country" (as Jack would tell me).  We spent a lot of time talking about our flag, coloring pictures of flags, waving them, etc.  This morning we made flag toast with cream cheese, strawberry preserves, blueberries, and bananas.  They really enjoyed getting to do it themselves.  Tonight we enjoyed attending an annual bbq at some friends house. 
 Thankful to live in America!
