Lily's 4th birthday!

 Lily woke up on the morning of March 13th and I told her "Happy birthday sweetie! Go look on the kitchen table!" she was so excited to see her presents and a balloon there waiting for her.

 Lily asked me about a week before her birthday to make her a "Belle" cake. As in Beauty and the Beast Belle. I was excited she asked for that because I had purchased a belle barbie and clothes for her birthday already. I decided to try doing this cake. Or something similar to it.

I was kind of disappointed that on the morning after I had already made the round cake, she asked for a Tangled cake instead. She wanted Rapunzel and Pascal on it too! I did my best on such short notice and made this for her.

She absolutely loved it too! It didn't turn out like I wanted and I was disappointed in my art skills, but because she liked it so much, it was worth it.

The cake with the "pretty princess candles" Lily adored the candles more than anything I think.
Happy Birthday sweet Lily bean! She is a gorgeous addition to our family. I love her smile and her dancing. She is often found singing to herself as she plays. She only sings songs she makes up herself though. She is all girl and all about sparkles, being beautiful, wearing dresses/skirts, pretty shoes, nail polish and of course she loves makeup! It doesn't get any more girly than our Lily.


 My poor babies have been sick with coughs and fevers. lily was so sick she fell asleep on the kitchen chair during breakfast!

Jake's Birthday!

Jacob turned 6! my little snuggle bug is six and I can't believe it! He had a really fun birthday too. We had a semi unexpected visit from Grandma and Grandpa Bremner and that made it extra special for our Jakey. 
He got a U-draw game and tablet. He loves to draw, so it was a big hit.
He asked for a "Lego Luke fighting Lego Darth Vader" cake. These kids sure come up with difficult cakes I tell you! I did my best, and this is what I ended up with. I can only do so much with frosting as my medium. It isn't too bad though if you ask me. I finished with it, then he asked me "Where is the six?!" and he helped me draw the number six on the cake. It was pretty fun for him to help me. (Let's just say I don't like it when they 'help' me with the cakes)

eating the yummy cake. Jake didn't like the cake but loved the ice cream.I think he just isn't a cake person.
We love Jacob so so much and he is a wonderful little boy. He is my only child that likes to cuddle and I love that he always wants to hold me. He tells me everyday that "he loves me so much." We love watching him grow. He has started reading, writing and will be playing baseball again this year. My favorite though, is his singing. He loves to sing in primary, and quite loudly I might add. The other day we were signing "Heavenly Father loves me" and he yelled out "Whenever I touch a MELVIN rose!" instead of velvet rose. I couldn't stop laughing. I love him so much.
