Thanksgiving with the Grandia's

Let It Snow!

3 Year Old Honesty, Part II

"Mommy, you're my favorite girl in the whole wide world!"

Katie, you were right :)

3 Year Old Honesty

While I was getting ready the other day, Madisyn told me, "Mommy, your hair kind of looks like a dinosaur."

Not quite the look I was going for :)

Two decades!

My beautiful sister Rachelle turned two decades old yesterday :) I made this cake to celebrate the occasion with her friends. It was fun to make, especially because she didn't care what I did with it and she loves pink and brown nearly as much as I do! We love you Rachelle!

Landon's cupcakes

Landon gets to bring a treat to "school" tomorrow since he's one of the showcased students for this week. Since I've been on such a cake kick lately (side note: I'm in the process of making my sister's birthday cake, which I'm pretty excited about), I decided to try some fun cupcakes. No theme really, except that I was only working with green, pink and tan fondant (so not too colorful).


Happy Belated Halloween! Our camera died after a couple of pictures, so here are the only ones I have of the kids. I was pleasantly surprised that Landon really got into trick-or-treating! We weren't even going to take him, but glad that we did because he had the time of his life following Madisyn and cousin Joshua.

*we're not even U of M fans... I just thought that having a cheerleader and a "football player" would be a cute idea :)

Updated with pictures from Dave and Kate (Rob's sister and brother-in-law).

We are a busy family of five! I enjoy time with my husband and kids, running, being outdoors, shopping for deals, and cuddling. My wonderful husband keeps busy playing with the kiddos, hunting, fishing, exercising and working on projects around the house. Madisyn is six, in 1st grade, loves being outdoors and isn't one bit afraid of bugs or worms! Landon is four, a spitting image of Daddy, and is the sweetest, naughtiest and funniest little boy, all in one! Tinley was born February 24, 2012 and has already blessed us beyond belief! Here's a glimpse into our crazy and wonderful lives... hope you enjoy!

Tiece of Cake

I've finally decided to make a blog (Tiece of cake) dedicated to cakes... as to not consume the family blog.
