A birthday party finally!!!

Zipporah and Sydney finally got their birthday party. Zipporah turned 5 August 19th and Sydney turned 5 on September 10th. Though we celebrated each individually on their special day as a family, I hadn't done a friend party with them yet. I decided to wait a bit, so that they could invite a few of their kindergarten classmates. So yesterday afternoon, friends from church and school arrived and we had a party for them. The kids had so much fun playing together, that they were only interested in playing one game I planned. The cakes were a hit and I was delighted with how they turned out.

Cake classes

Me and my friend Marissa started taking cake decorating classes this month. Our first course we decorated 2 cakes and a bunch of cupcakes. The classes are really fun and even though I have been decorating cakes for my kids birthdays for years, I have been learning alot. I plan on taking all the cake decorating classes they offer at Micheals. Course 2 started beginning of October, can't wait!!!!

Calliope has a tooth

Calliope got her first tooth today. What a trooper. She showed no signs of teething at all. No runny nose, no fussiness, no nothing, except she has been liking to chew on things alot. So today she was just snacking on my finger while I was doing my visiting teaching and I could feel her tooth. At almost 6 and a half months, she is my youngest to get a tooth.

Corn Maze

On Saturday we decided to take a fmaily outting to the Edmonton corn maze. We went with the Hamilton's and had a great time. Of coarse, only us adults got lost. We got to marker 7 and couldn't find number 8. We found 7 again about 10 times, then oh no, crap there is 6, so back we went. Around this corner, left here right there, dead end. I am sure we have been here before. Finally after about 25 minutes stuck at 7, we found marker 8. WOOHOO!!!!! Poor little Owen got so tired, so I did what any mom would do, put him on my shoulders and he had a great time. We are definately going again next summer!!!!
