Cookie Monster Creation

For many years, I have been interested in cake decorating. I have played with some cake for the kids birthdays. So, last night I started a cake decorating class. I was feeling guilty for going because it will take me 6 weeks to complete the classes and I would be gone from home one night a week. Ronnie encouraged me to go and have fun. He said "this is something you have wanted to do for a long time and I can handle the kids". He is such a wonderful man. I waited to the last minute to decide to go and sign up, then I had to make my icing and then go back to class. I felt a little bit overwhelmed, but last night was fun. The class is going to be a therapy session for me I think. I made a cookie monster cupcake. He is cute even though one of his arms looked a little deformed. Beginners luck. Next week we are to bake a 2 layer circle cake and have it iced smoothly before we get to class, then we will decorate the top. That should be interesting to see. I have never had smooth icing. I'm sure that it will be like the cookie monster. Some looked like cookie monster, some looked like a light baby blue something and a couple I don't know what they looked like - no cookie monster! We are just learning and have fun. I don't want that job for a living, but it will be fun to play with.

Kali is so excited that dancing has finally started. Her daddy promised her that if she would stop pee peeing and poo pooing in her panties, she could start dance. EVERY DAY she is ready for dance. It only comes once a week though. LOL. She is taking from Lauren's Dance Studio. She is doing tap and ballet.

Gage has started Pee Wee Football through the Boys & Girls Club. He really enjoys playing. He has his own cheerleader that thinks only "Bud" is it. She gets excited when he suits up and she starts saying "I want my cheer suit".

New to the blogging world

I am trying out the blogging world. I want to be able to share what is going on in my life with my friends and family that are out of town and does not have the chance to see my kids grow up.
