Hello Cupcakes

My friend Ashley bought this awesome cupcake book called Hello Cupcake. Well, being the experienced cake decorators that we are we got busy making some serious cupcakes. Every cupcake in this book is like a piece of art. Seriously, if I made something that looked that awesome, nobody better touch it..let alone eat it!!! But no need to worry we didn't make anything that came even slightly close to looking like anything in the book. I made the cupcakes and we had some awesome decorators! Look at all the sprinkles on Sophie's plate! They had more fun dumping out sprinkles than anything else!

Lucas will be ready for the action next year

14 years and counting...

Bert and I celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary the weekend of the 8th. My parents kept the kids at their house while we went to Chattanooga for the weekend. We had so much fun! I took so many books and I enjoyed catching up on my reading. The scenery was awesome! Our cabin was way up high in the mountains and the view was phenomenal. Check out the 2nd picture in my post. Bert actually woke me up at 2:00AM to show me that picture! He had so much fun taking pictures. We ate at Aretha Frankensteins on Friday night. Saturday we just chilled at the cabin most of the day and then went to the mystery dinner theatre that evening. Sunday we went on a fall lunch cruise on the river. We werent supposed to go pick up the kids until Monday but we decided to surprise them by showing up a day early. The older kids weren't that excited(go figure) but Sophie was thrilled to see us. I soooo appreciate my parents keeping the children and letting us have time together. We had a blast and I am so thankful for the wonderful husband God has blessed me with! (yes, babe I ended that sentence w/ a preposition just for you)!
