March Madness

The last few weeks have been crazy! Here are a few of the highlights:

Josh loves hats! It doesn't matter what kind of hat it is or who it belongs to, if he finds it he just has to put it on.

Josh also had his follow-up appointment for his ears this week. Everything looks great!

Jordan went missing for a few minutes last Saturday and this is where we found him - atop the block wall. Mind you, this is above my head. Apparently he climbed up this old chainlink gate:

I have done a lot of caking lately! These are cupcakes I made for Enrichment Night. They are chocolate cupcakes with marshmallow buttercream and chocolate butterflies. Dawn Esplin came over and helped me make the butterflies. We had a lot of fun making them and she was surprised at how easy they are to make!

This is the cake I made for Stacie Miner's birthday today (Happy Birthday Stac!). It is White Velvet cake with strawberry buttercream and white chocolate fondant.

I made another cake this week for a friend's 21st birthday, but it was kind of last minute and I was so unhappy with the way it turned out that I refused to even take a picture. Hopefully it at least tasted good!
I took on another piano student this month - I now have three students (plus my own kids and hubby). I am hoping to find one more student to teach, so if you know of anyone who wants to learn just let me know.
Justin and I also both donated blood last week. Justin donates blood and platelets regularly, but this is the first time I have donated in probably 8 years. Last time I donated I had forgotten to eat breakfast (I had an early morning class) and did not react well to giving blood - really I couldn't even sit up for hours without getting dizzy. Because of that I have been nervous to donate again, but this time I had no problems.
This week was spirit week at Madison's school. Here she is on Crazy Hair Day: (it's kind of hard to tell, but there are 11 ponytails in her hair!)
Madison was also honored as a Straight A Student at her school this last week. Good job Mad!
I am really hoping the next few weeks are a little calmer, but I'm not holding my breath!

Your cakes just blow me away! Makes me want to buy one. :) Maybe not. I probably couldn't afford it. Still, your decorations, and descriptions just make me want to eat cake...and I'm not that big of a fan of cake!
