Busy Weekend

Today was full of cakes and icing and more cakes and more icing!  I decided I want to make Henry's cake for his first birthday, and I need to practice beforehand so I have at least a small inkling of what I'm supposed to do.  After talking to my in-laws, we decided I would make my practice cake be the birthday cake for the birthday celebration they will be having tomorrow for three of their childrens' birthdays.  It was a busy day, but it was fun!  My mother-in-law knows how to ice a cake, that's for sure!  Her orange layer looked much better than my green layer.

This is the layer I iced.  It looks like Shrek, doesn't it!?

Here they are stacked on each other.  We also put a purple cupcake on top, so that's why there is a little purple icing in the orange.

I took this picture of Henry and John at my in-law's house.  I love Henry's little half-smile.  They are both so cute!  :o)


We also got our family pictures back from a couple weeks ago.  They are wonderful!  There are so many good ones.  Here are just a few.

I love the editing done on this photo.  It reminds me of an old, old picture.

I love this picture of us!

Here is probably my absolute favorite of all of them, but so many of them are my favorites that it's hard to choose just one!

I wonder what the rest of the weekend has in store for us!

Love the pic of you and John

Love the pic of you and John and the half smile is adorable!
