Daddy was gaming Friday night so when I asked the kids what they wanted to do, Sylvie wanted to make cupcakes. So we made cupcakes for Daddy! We had to taste test before he got home, I have to say vanilla bean cupcakes with lemon cream cheese icing is delicious.

It really is a wonderful life!

This week marks one year of being an official "Stay at home mom". It has been a wonderful year, I feel extremely blessed that God opened or should I say closed doors that allowed me this honor. The house is semi quiet right now, Sylvie is asleep, Josh is gaming with friends, Gideon is playing transformers and I am just relaxing. My life is so wonderful, it didnt necessary turn out the way I thought it would, but turned out great. Gideon is growing up so fast, he starts kindergarten this year! I just want to stop time. He is so smart (of course) and so sweet at the same time. He adores Josh and at times I do have to say I feel a little left out, but then Josh reminds me that a little girl is the same way with her momma. She is almost potty trained!!! She has been so easy! We are still working on #2 but she is making progress. I am so happy to be almost done with diapers, but then sad at the same time that the baby stage is almost over. She is my little buddy. She tells me daily that I am her best friend. (heart melt) Well off to get a little boy to bed, just wanted to blog for a minute. :-) Good night friends!

Happy Kitchen

I spend a lot of time in my kitchen (waist line actually shows) but truthfully most of art projects, game time, hanging out is in our kitchen. The colors I choose are very muted colors, colors I would not get tired of, but recently I have started to want to add some color.

I have everything, not to sound spoiled but I don't need anything. Sure I have wants, but when people started asking me what I wanted I didn't know what to say till I started thinking about things I like but would never spend the money. One thing is fiesta dishes. So I decided when someone asked I would mention that.... Well lets just say you ask you shall receive. I was pleasantly surprised to receive 6 sets for Christmas. I found a matching pitcher and 4 glasses for 5.00 at goodwill! The kids love them, every night when I set the dishes out for Gideon to set the table I hear him ask everyone what color they want. There is something about them that brightens my day!
