Lynnette is 9

After the kids have their 8th birthday party, they have a choice of no party and we take them to Toys r us (or wherever they want to go) to spend $100. on whatever they want, or they can have a small pizza party with friends and they have to be incharge of the party. Lynnette decided on the money and she did well at scoring for her presents. Chris and I also gave her a blow dryer and a straightener for her birthday gift from us. Everything else in the picture she picked herself and of coarse all the others are envious!! But Lynnette is extremely nice and has been sharing them with her siblings.

Cake class coarse 3 final cake

This is my final project for my coarse 3 cake class. It is covered in fondant icing and the roses and leaves are made by me with fondant icing as well. I loved making the roses and spending time preparing everything for this cake. This is the reason I decided to take the cake classes. I wanted to learn to work with fondant better and I am so happy with my final cake. Our final class was Wednesday, December 5th and we will not take the fondant and gumpast coarse until January. I am very excited for that class aswell. I have just learned so much from taking these cake classed, I love it!!!! I have always enjoyed making cakes, but now I love it even more. I am planning on making a couple cakes for Christmas, so I will make sure to post pictures of them as well after Christmas.

Christmas concerts

Well 5 of the kids had a Christmas concert this year. On Tuesday December 4th, Zipporah, Sydney, Lynette and Abigail's classes each sang a song, and on December 5th Forrest sang with his school choir he is in. Both were really great and all the kids did so well!!!

Calliope 9 month pictures

Calliope is just growing up so fast. She started crawling about a month ago and she loves to babble. She is now pulling herself to standing and can shuffle very very slowly along the couch, though she usually gets too tired before she gets too far. hehehe Calliope has 4 teeth now. Two front teeth on the top and the two front teeth on the bottom. She loves fruit and chicken. Anything with chicken and she gobbles it up. And now that she is crawling she likes to sit by me when I do dishes or cook supper. Calliope is such a joy and we just love her so much. We are so blessed to have her in our family.
