7 years

On August 19th Zipporah turned 7. I remember when I was 6 month pregnant with her, we became foster parents and so instead of her being the youngest of 3, she became the youngest of 6 under 5 years of age. She was so shy until she went to preschool. She was probably 4 before she would even go up to my parents. She clung to me and Chris a lot. Now she is a huge social butterfly and loves to do things without her uncool mom and dad. She is definately a delight!

Butterfly wedding cake

I just made this cake this past weekend. Sorry the background is making the pictures yellow. It was in a tented area in case of rain. They did move the cake out later in the evening so hopefully I can get a better picture of this soon and add it here. This cake is a five tier cake. Each tier is two layers. chocolate, lemon, vanilla, chocolate, chocolate are the tier flavours. If you look close you can see that the borders are the ivory icing pearls and in between each ivory pearl is 2 purple smaller pearls. I love how the butterflies look on the cake. The topper is a family heirloom I believe.

Ezra 6 month pictures

This baby I just love so much. He is adorable, happy, funny, cuddly.... he is just awesome! Ezra now sits up by himself and eats real food. Ezra's main source of transportation is rolling, he rolls from one end of the room to the other in no time. He loves to drink water from a cup. He clucks his tongue and crawls on his back. He lays on his back, and tips his head up to see where he is going and then uses his legs to push himself forward. Hard to explain, but my Zipporah also crawled like this for awhile, it is so cute. He is starting to sleep better at night, which is so awesome, and as soon as our house guest move out, he will be moving out of mine and Chris's room and into his own room, so sleeping straight through the night is just around the corner. Ezra loves to just chill on my lap and squeals with delight when Chris comes home. I just love how he reaches for me whenever I walk in the room.

Oh and before I forget, Ezra has a natural fauw hawk. It is so cute. One of these days I will spike it up and take pictures.

Coffin cake

Why you ask???? Well it was for a retirement party. My friend Lindsay's dad was retiring and he had his own business making coffin's. This was made with 8 cake's. Huge and Heavy!!!

Drifloon cake

This is a drifloon pokemon cake I made beginning of July. It ended up being more tricky than I thought. But in the end it all worked out and the boy I made it for and his brothers thought it was so awesome!! And really that's all that matters.

Long time

Sorry it has been so long since I have blogged. I am a bit bummed. My sd card stopped working and the only programs I can find that can retrieve my pictures are going ot cost me about 40 bucks. Also I have no camera. My awesome awesome one is still not fixed and the one I bought to do the job until I get it fixed, broke. So I can't take pictures and I am so sad. I need to just go buy another small one, I am worried I will miss Ezra eating his toes phase.

Anyone know any sites where I can download a FREE photo recovery program and still have it retrieve ALL my pictures??????
