Course 2 is over...

I have been taking classes at Micheal's and I have just finished the second one-I passed! Yeah! It is so much fun and I have made some good friends! We are starting Course 3 next week! We have never had so much cake in our house and I have never gone through so many bags of icicng sugar! I really should have kept a count of how many...I am guessing around25-30!!! That is alot of sugar!!!

Cake faces!!!!

Max and Norah love it when I make cakes! Both of them love to lick the beaters or in Norah's case the plate!! Norah is the funniest because she will hear the mixer going and come running, screaming the whole way, "yummy! Yummy!" I love to hear that!

Busy Weekend...

So this is what I did this weekend! I made cakes! The middle on was actually my first cake that I have sold!! The purple one is for was for her birthday!!! The horse one is for my niece-Anna! The horse one is also one that a friend has ordered!!! This is great fun!

Sad Blistery May Day!!!!

I have spent so much time in my garden that I was so sad when there was a heavy snowfall warning for end of May! I had just planted over a dozen perrenials and the thought of them freezing--well I went out and covered everything with buckets and blankets! The next morning I was out shaking the trees so that they wouldn't snap and break! It has been a few days since the snowfall and my plants made it, we will see about my trees??? I was hoping for apples this year!

Norah is potty training and doing quite well at it! It is quite nice to not have to worry about diapers and...but with potty training comes a whole new set of worries or problems! She has been the one that has decided that it was time! She has seen what Max is doing and thought that it was time that she did the same! I do have to say that my favorite moment of her potty training has been when she sits down to go pee and has to push HER penis down!!! She will say, "push, push!!" What a girl!!!!!

Max playing with his friend Erik and with Norah. They lined up the laundry baskets and were playing 'choo-choo trains' Norah just stood and watched the boys play! I don't know that she knew what to think of them plus, Max wasn't paying attention to her and that was really different for her!

Let's go fly a kite...

The girls went and flew kites with their daddy. Now they, including Max and Norah, always want to go and fly kites. They didn't have to go far...we have a the ravine and a huge green space really close to our home.

A Great Moment...

Norah is Potty Training!!!!

Last Monday Norah decided that diapers were no longer for her! She would take her poopy diapers and smear them all over the place! By Wednesday I had enough and just took off the diaper for good! She has been doing quite well...considering that she is potty training herself! She has a bladder of steel and only goes 2 maybe 3 times a day! We just have to work on her wearing her panties and not Max's gonchies and especially covering the right body part! Just kidding! She was being silly and was trying to make everyone laugh-which is what she did!
