Calliope is 1

I know everyone says it, but this year went by so fast. I can't believe how soon Calliope turned one. It has been a busy year thats forsure. She did start walking at 11 months, still crawling lots, but talking lots of steps too, but now she is walking more than crawling, she thinks she is so big!!!! We just had a family party for her birthday. I loved making her fairy cake and she enjoyed eating it I am sure. She is such a blessing to us and I am so glad she is part of our big happy family.

My first wedding cake

This is my first wedding cake. I was very happy with how it turned out. A family in our ward was getting maried and baptised the same day. Well the mom and dad were getting married. So they got married at 2pm, then at 4pm got baptised (mom, dad, son and daughter) then ward potluck to help them celebrate at 630pm. I volunteered to make the cake. Since there was not a lot of time to plan the wedding, I still wanted them to have a really nice cake, as everyone needs nice things for their wedding.

Valentine's Day

Chris and I do not celebrate Valentine's Day. We feel we dont' need a over commercialized day for us to show we love eachother. And I certainly don't need over prised flowers to know that Chris loves me. We all year round take time to show eachother that we are in love. Now having said that, it doesn't mean I don't make it special for the kids. I figure since it is a day of love, I can make things fun and exciting for my children (whom I love greatly) on this day.

The kids had alot of fun making valentines, decorating cookies, eating all the super yummy valentines treats and of coarse getting their valentines day gift.
