I have been trying to blog all week but Ayla has kept me busy and I have been busy trying to get things done because I don't want to have to do anything our anniversary weekend. It's been 4 wonderful years. So I wont be in the blog world for 4 days.
Anyway, I wanted to post about the weekend and the cakes I made. I made 3 cakes and it kept me busy.
The first one was a Minnie Mouse cake that I got paid for. Don't you just love the mess? I didn't have the chance to clean up before I took the picture because I had to go and I wouldn't get the chance to take a picture of it with the kitchen clean because the people were coming to pick it up while I was gone. That is how my weekend went. I felt like I was on the run the whole time.
The second cake was for my sister-law, Krista. It was her birthday on Saturday. Happy birthday Krista! I didn't take a picture of the cake I made because I made the chocolate one I make all the time and it is already on the blog.
Anyways, we had a great family party at the Perry's.
Here is our nice, Brooke at the party.
Here is a picture of Morganne chasing Ayla around.
Here is Ayla screaming while being chased by Morganne. Lets just say it got pretty rowdy.
Ayla loves to be with her cousins.
Kurt felt like it was his birthday.
His mom had a stuffed animal unicorn in with the toys and Kurt wanted it to take to work, so he could add it to the unicorn gallery at work. His coworkers are so funny. They have a place in the office dedicated to unicorns. It all started with a single picture of a unicorn and then I got a unicorn picture for Christmas one year and Kurt added it to the other picture. Since then, Kurt and his coworkers have added lots of unicorn pictures and other stuff and everyone in the office gets a kick out of it. I think he said he was going to suspend this unicorn from the ceiling. How funny! LOL!
Here is a cute picture of Morganne at the party. Notice she has the same cheer outfit as Ayla? Yay, Grandma Perry bought her one too. Too cute, huh?
And of course, Baby Kurt.
He is crawling in this picture but he has started to walk. Go Baby Kurt!
The last cake I made was for our family reunion on Sunday. Notice that the reunion is in green? That is because I ran out of blue frosting and I didn't want to make any more. I was getting pretty caked out by the time I finished this one. I still think it turned out though.
The reunion was on my mom's side of the family. My mom's sister, Shirley came in from Denver and so that is why we had the reunion. It wasn't big but it was fun.
Here I am with my aunt, Shirley.
On my right is my uncle Ruel and on Shirley's left is our Aunt Zora and her husband, Monty. Zora is my mother's, mother's sister. I have never met my mother's, mother because, like I said in earlier posts, my mom was an orphan at 4 years old. I still want to share a post on them. I am so fascinated with my grandparents who died so young.
I wanted a picture of my mother and all her siblings. They are lined up in order of age - youngest to oldest. So my uncle Ruel was just a baby when his parents died and my aunt Shirley was 6 and my aunt Kathy was 8. So my poor aunts were at ages where it hit them hard about losing their parents. I couldn't imagine loosing my parents at age 6 or 8.
Me with my nephew, Lane Brain. I love him!
Uncle Ruel with his wife Denise. I thought this was a sweet picture.
Kurt and my Dad!
I have to laugh at this one because they are pulling the same face and they both have a cookie in their hand.
At the park where we had the reunion, there was a large hill and Kurt kept running down it with Ayla. It was so fun to see her have such a great time.
She had to try and hang from the soccer goal. She is so funny.
She is so cute; she was pointing at me when I was taking pictures.
I think her favorite part was the playground. She really loved going down the slides.
She played hard. She was so wiped out when we got home, she past out.
This is right when we were all getting ready to leave. My uncle Ernie is in this picture behind my dad.
We had a wonderful weekend but I was so tired by the end of it.
One last thought. Tomorrow is my anniversary and I just want my wonderful husband to know how much I love him and that it has been an amazing 4 years with him. I look forward for many years and forever with him! I love you, honey!
