The Little Guy

Remember this little guy? 

A few weeks ago Bonnie had become extremely exhausted on a Sunday and ended up throwing up.  On Monday morning she still wasn't feeling very good.  I decided it was time to pull out the good old sprite soda remedy.  I told Jay I was headed to the gas station to get her some soda and asked him if he wanted anything.  He suggested donuts.

I'm not the type of girl that eats standard donuts, I have to have the good stuff.  So I asked him if he meant the good stuff or the powder donuts from the gas station.  He meant the gas station.

Back home I handed out the donuts.  Chas ended up eating maybe three of four.  Jay was still at the table eating breakfast while I checked on Bonnie and got her soda.  Yeah Bonnie was in heaven, she was getting soda.

I headed back into the kitchen to have a few donuts and saw Chas still sitting on his seat at the table.  The next thing I see is him as he reached his hand slowly over to the top left hand corner and taps his fingers on the edge of the computer.  Then he slowly leaned over, he looked like he had no clue as to what he was actually going to do.  Then with his head next to the corner of the computer he opened his mouth and began gnawing on the computer!  Jay grabbed the computer and we told him you weren't allowed to gnaw on the computer.

He ran off to the other room on a serious sugar high.  I laughed about that for days and really wish I could of gotten a picture of him chewing on the computer.  We haven't made the same mistake since, no powdered sugar donuts for that boy in the morning anymore.

Family Hike

While down in Utah visiting my sister everyone but myself went for a hike.  I was at the time sick, so I was excused from the trip.

It was a fun hike that all the kids could do and they had a blast, I can't wait till I go back and can go on the hike.

Jay said they had great little bridges like this throughout the hike.  He said both kids loved it.

Unlike her sister, Charlotte had a good time in the baby carrier.  Back when Bonnie was a baby she really didn't like the carrier when we hiked Mount Timpanogas.

The hike was a success.  The kids all came home and took a nap (and so did Donna)!

Bonnie's Ice Cream Dress

Finished a new dress for Bonnie.  I finally got her to try it on this afternoon after much pleading.

I'm really happy with the look of this dress and the fabrics are so very fun together.  I so wish I would look cute in something like this.

Here is a close up of the two fabrics.

Big Bowl

This is what happens after you use all the normal size bowls for cake, Chris was left with using a salad bowl or a tiny little bowl for breakfast.  He decided to go big.

I'm pretty sure Bonnie and Chris are watching either a western or war movie right at the moment.

My Baby turned 1!

Last Friday Charlotte turned one.  I am so amazed time has flown by so quickly.  We were down visiting my sister in Utah and had a wonderful party.  The cake was more then amazing.

Here Donna is applying the third layer to Charlotte's cake.

Oh yes I hear you saying wow, that's a lot of cake.  Just wait.

Yes that is the fourth layer of the cake.

Donna frosting on top of the fifth layer.

Finally all the layers were applied.  At this point we'd used all the frosting we had made.  So then we made another batch of frosting.

But our second batch of frosting wasn't enough so we had to make a third batch of frosting.  Finally we had it all frosted and it was time to party!

 Everyone is excited about this cake.  We put four candles on the cake because there were three big kids that wanted to help blow out the candles.

Looks like we weren't cutting the cake quick enough.  Chas finally HAD to taste the frosting.  He'd been holding back all evening but he just couldn't take it anymore.

Ta-Da, a rainbow cake!!  Donna & I were so pleased with how cute this cake turned out.  In fact everyone was in awe.  That's the best part about my family, we are always up for an adventure when it comes to dessert.  We had to use paper towels for the cake because it was too big for plates!

Most importantly the birthday girl approved.  She loved it the cake.  I fed it to her in color portions because I didn't' want the doggies getting all the cake.

Proof that she's part me.  There is still cake left on her tray but as you can see she was busy eating the icing first.

We just thought we'd use a diet coke can to reference the height of this awesome cake.  We had a great birthday party for the little one.  Happy Birthday Charlotte.
