Pool Day with Logan



With the nicer weather finally here we have been spending tons of time outdoors. Mainly in the water since it's the only way to cool off here in Idaho. The other day the kids got to spend some time with our little neighbor Logan. They all really enjoyed the pool...even Logan. It was his first time in a pool and he did great considering that my kiddos were his poolmates. :) Pretty sure the only times they weren't splashing was when these pics were taken.

My Kiddos

Best Friends....for now. :)

Harry the Hedgehog

Last Thursday was my final cake class. It was so fun learning all the techniques.....and getting some mommy time. For our final project we made hedgehogs. And yes, I did name him....he was just too cute not to.


Every part of him was cake covered in fondant except his big, black nose, eyes, and paws.


He was tasty too!

Thought for the day....

I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.
Romans 1:16

Isn't it interesting that it is illegal to be a Christian in 51 different countries. However it is legal to be a muslim, buddhist or any other major practicing religion in all 245* countries. Yet Christians are the ones who are labled judgemental. Just a thought:)

*this number depends on your view of what a country is. check out this link for more info. Its interesting because all 51 countries that persecute Christians are all defined as "real" countries.

Rejoice!

Every day the Lord gives us brings with it a reason to rejoice.
-Thelma Wells

Congratulations!!


Congratulations to my hubby who won Volunteer of the Quarter for the wing. (That's the whole base) I am so proud of him and I love watching him coach all the kids. He is such a great coach and really enjoys getting a chance to make an impact on their lives. Way to go baby!

Cake and More Cake

My dear friend Amy makes cakes as a home business and she has been teaching a class the last few weeks. I have been privileged to be able to go and I am having a blast. It has been so fun learning all the techniques and getting creative.


My first fondant rose....ever.

All of my different attempts at different frosting methods. Yeah, this was the cake from the first class. Not as pretty as I would like, but that's what practice is for.

This is my second cake. We learned how to cover the cake with fondant and do some "painting" with frosting. And we got to make more roses....my favorite part.

For our final project we are making cakes that will look like hedgehogs. I can't wait!

Dance, Baby, Dance

Madison had her dance recital a couple weekends ago. All the little dancers were so cute. And the cake afterwards was delicious too.


At home, before the recital.



Her first routine to "Baby, Take a Bow." She is the one on the end.


Her second routine was a tap routine (and I can't remember what the song was). That's her on the end again.

The cake that my friend Amy made for the recital....it was amazing!

Creative Little Man



Jaden has been getting pretty creative in finding ways to get what he wants.


The other night we had soup and pineapple for dinner. Jaden loves pineapple and wanted to have more. We told him to finish his soup first. So, the creative little fellow took all the soup out of his bowl and put it on his plate. He then showed us his empty bowl and told us he was done expecting to get more pineapple. Yeah, cute trick, but the little guy didn't get his wishes.




Fun in the Sun!

With the nicer weather we have started to water our lawn and the kids have been taking full advantage of the sprinkler. They love to run through it to cool down. I do not enjoy the extra laundry created :), but it's wonderful to see how much fun they have together.

Just when you thought....

Just when you thought you've seen/heard of all the different types of worship, you see something like this. IT reminds me that there are so many types of ways to worship God. Incredible. http://youtube.com/watch?v=CT7x3VnrqbA
