Grace's 4th Birthday Cake

The finished product....I can't believe it. I have learned so much. This cake was definately a challenge, but I am so happy with the results. When Grace walked into the kitchen she put her hands to her mouth and gasped, "Oh Mommy...It's so pretty!" "WOW" She was so excited and couldn't believe it. That was present enough to me. I was so happy that she loved it, and that it stayed intact :)

Got Cake?

Working on Grace's Birthday Cake....Yes I'm Crazy
I still have so much to do, but I'm enjoying the challenge. It has been so much fun learning how to use fondant.

My Mother's Day Gift

I feel so happy and so blessed to be a mom. I love Mother's day.
I love celebrating my mother. She is truly an amazing, sweet and beautiful woman inside and out. She has taught me what it is to be a woman....a good woman. She has taught me more than I could ever say. I feel so blessed that she was given to me to be my mother. I love you mom. Thank you!
Grace has brought another dimension of Mother's Day to me.
I still can't believe I'm a mom!!! YAY!!!
I had Grace the day before Mother's Day in 2006.
I thought that was the kindest, most loving gift Heavenly Father could have given me.
After 7 1/2 years of waiting for my sweet angel....she finally came.
Before that day Mother's Day was a sad reminder that we were having a tough time getting pregnant. I wondered if I would ever be a mom. I longed to be a mom with my whole being.
Now I am filled with joy that my hopes and dreams have come true.
I love Grace....she is our gift.
She has brought a happiness that I could never have dreamed of...
an eternal happiness

Our joy

To my sister Samantha,
You will be an amazing Mother. Your already an amazing sister and aunt. We love and adore you. Happy Mother's Day!!!

Welcome to Ririe Dam

Who would have known this place was hiding in the middle of nowhere. It was really beautiful but incredibly windy. It was down right crazy wind. What a wonderful afternoon getaway :)
My Love

We had so much fun with Lori and Scott and Matt and Samantha. We played Bocce Ball and had a wonderful picnic lunch.

We were blown away!!!!!

I love my Grace

Let's go fly a kite....should be easy in Rexburg :)

We took Grace to Porter Park for kite flying. She was so excited! She grabbed the kite and started running. Beautifully sunny, but good old windy rexburg. We had a wonderful time together.

Fun with Daddy
