A Family Reunion Cake

WOW!!! I got an order for this cake because the woman tried a piece of the anniversay cake from the previous post and loved the chocolate!!

It was kind of short notice but I said I would do it!!! So it's chocolate with white buttercream. The lettering was made out of fondant. Oh and it's an 18" x 12".

An Anniversary Cake

This was a fun cake to do. The lady that ordered it was so great!! Wish everyone could be as nice as she was. She was the first ever to send me a nice note and thanked me for doing the cake and said how much everyone loved it!!

This cake was for a 50th Wedding Anniversary. It had different flavors for tier and they are all covered with buttercream. Handmade gum paste daisies were placed differently on each cake.

Collin's 5th Birthday

Collin is 5 years old now!!! Whoo Hoo!!! He was a happy little boy for his birthday!! Collin is also so spoiled and he even admits it! He's a funny boy!

Collin ended up having two parties. One for his friends and one for the family. On the 25th, he had his party with his friends. It was only three friends (I think!), but all of the families ended up staying also!! they had a great time running around the house, playing in Collin's room, eating cupcakes, ice cream and cookies (sugar high!) and pulling strings on the pinata.

I just wished others in our family could have made it there with us!! And I wished I had time to go and get Alec for at least the weekend! I just couldn't get away to do it and JoMax and Liz were unable to come.

Grandma Brewer always brings balloons for the kids presents. Collin had to look at his right away because he knows that there is always a special surprise in the balloon!!

WOW!! look at the mola that was in the balloon!! Thanks Grandma Brewer!!

Collin wanted Wall-E for his birthday so that's what I made!

Wall-E look-a-like!

I can't believe I ate 2 whole cupcakes!!

It's a Sorry game! Collin guessed what it was before he opened it all of the way!!!
How did he do that?!!

Collin...can you guess what this is?

Ummmmm...a Wii?!!! For some reason he just know he was going to get one!!

Joe and I got him a game to go with his Wii and his Grandma Jensen bought him a trampoline!!

4th of July.....and Cake!!!

Wow!! I haven't blogged for a while!! It's been really busy lately! But I'll start with our July 4th fun!!

On the 4th we first went to the local parade in Arco. We like to watch the parade from the Butte Middle School lawn, but wouldn't you know...they had the sprinklers on!!! What the heck!!! They know that people sit there for the parade!!!

Anyway, The kids had a great time in the water and running out in the road to snatch up candy from the parade entrants.

"Can we play in the water! Pleeeeeeease!!!!!"

Chasing candy!

Kaitlyn forgot to bring something to hold her candy in and Collin offered some of his candy to her! What a sweet boy!!

Reaping the rewards!

After the parade, we went to Tauna's house for BBQ hamburgers, salads, cake and ice cream.

Kaitlyn asked if she could have a red, white and blue cake this year. I was surprised since she usually didn't want anything patriotic before! So I tried to make it patriotic but different. I have never tried to do a topsy turvy cake, so I thought that this was my chance. Well....It was harder then I thought it was going to be, but I think it's okay for my first one. So this was a learning cake! I was just glad that friends and family don't care if it's a little off! They all liked it!!

The makings of homemade rootbeer!! The kids had a blast watching the smoke from the dry

With our belly's full and knowing that we would be up late watching fireworks, we went to Kami's to put the kids down for a nap. While the kids were sleeping, Kami, Joe and I watched "27 Dresses". I love that movie!!!

That evening we went to the elemantary school playground to watch the fireworks from the Number Hill in Arco. The kids had a great time playing and running...and running...and running...

Carlee was a little afraid of the fireworks at Kaitlyn's house. Most of the time I held on to her, but she just wanted to run and hide. After all...it was a loooong day!!
