Finished for the night

Well the cakes are DONE!! It ended up being two b/c my round layer was not big enough, so, I improved and just made second cake. I could not stand the thought of not using an already baked cake!

Russell came home and so sweetly suggested we go out to eat. Which was GREAT because I did not want to cook after decorating cakes and making icing all day. I made chocolate buttercream for the first time. I do not care for chocolate that much at all but this taste pretty good.

I will post a few pictures tomorrow. I do not want my pictures out on the web for the guest to see before they get to the party.

Please pray the rains does not come in until the afternoon. My dad is brining animals for a petting zoo, and we will be so disappointed if we have to move inside and cancel that part of it. It STORMED for Cole's party last year, hopefully, that will not happen two years in a row.

Luke is spending the night with my parents, so, he can be there to help dad catch and load the animals in the morning. Yes, the love coming up with an "excuse" for why he "has" to stay, ha!

That's all for now folks!

Behind already

I just cannot get going good this morning. Today being the last day of the month, I must get my ThirtyOne shows submitted. Since they are having computer problems, I have to stay on hold with them when I want to submit a show. I LOVE 31 but I had computer problems! Thank goodness this is only the first time in over a year of my selling to do this. Today is just not a day I need to deal with problems. I am on hold as I am typing-last call it was almost 20 minutes. Yesterday after almost an hour I got cut off. BREATH Jennifer BREATH! I love the commission, so, will be happy when my check arrives!

Ok, going to brush my teeth and put on make up while I wait for the six callers ahead of me to get their problems worked out!

Be back on later!

Well I have bought groceries tonight. Had two kids for part of the trip, then Luke left with dad and was down to Cole. Poor guy, he could barely find room to stand in the buggy because I needed so much stuff this week! HA!

THS has Spring Training this week. Russell is exhausted, can barely talk and has a sinus infection to boot. But it's FOOTBALL, so, he will make it through! GO TIGERS!!!

I have baked a round cake and the horse cake tonight. I will make the icing, assemble and decorate it tomorrow. Then not much to do but wait and hope it does not rain Saturday.

Well, I am off to watch a little DVR'd tv and the to bed.

Good night and God Bless!


I have been inspired by my friend, VW, and I am going to try starting back up my blog!

I am currently getting ready for Cole's SECOND birthday party this weekend. I cannot believe he will be TWO on Tuesday. He is having a Western Theme. My dad is bring animals for a petting zoo and goat cart ride. Yes I said GOAT cart ride, not go cart ride!! We're an animal farm loving family! I am starting my cake tonight which will be a horse head with a round base cake. This is the first year I am not stressing out over the party! Now, I am worried that I am not stressing out already, haha!

Luke will be SIX in July. Boy time flies!

I am very excited that I got the McDonald's Shrek House Party and I cannot wait for my package to arrive. I will be getting a $75 Arch Card and the Shrek 3rd DVD among happy meal toys and lots of other items. The kids are excited too!

I am going to try to be a better blogger ,but I am not promising anything! It would help if I had lots of followers and new people actually read it!!!
