I knew that I was in trouble when Dustin decided to go to sleep before 7 pm...I heard from him again right around 1 and then Kaden shortly after...they went back to sleep off and on...Me however...maybe tonight? We have already had our quiet time, and I was surprised neither one of them actually took a nap...I am just happy that they are pleasantly playing with Legos (together)...You wouldn't have known that it was such a sleepless night around here...I am just hoping that the reality of sleepless children doesn't creep up around 7...when Ryan comes home...I am really aiming for an 8pm bedtime tonight!

Here's the boys waiting to share Bekkah's Cupcakes with her class...pretty bored for about 3 minutes...Bekkah decided she wanted a Candy Land Cake this year...they all Loved it...(It almost hurts my teeth just thinking about all the possible cavities that could come from this cake)
Thank you Grandma and Grandpa!!! Bekkah also received many cards, money and birthday gifts. Thanks so much for remembering our baby doll!

Tomorrow is Bekkah's brithday so this morning, we woke up early to decorate some cupcakes for her class. I was a little concerned when Bekkah wanted Brown Frosting for the girls and Yellow Frosting for the boys. It was not what I had thought would be fun for Bekkah's Girl Birthday cupcakes for her class...Bekkah has always had her own ideas on how to do things...I went with it since it will be her birthday, not sure what the outcome would be, but with a few treats and lots of sprinkles, they turned out pretty cute...and the girls will get Bekkah's favorite CHOCOLATE FROSTING. Inside, we also added a little surprise, I think they are called Squinkies? teenie little squishy toys in a ball. Anyways, we shall have fun today going to lunch with Bekkah and delivering her choice of cute cupcakes the last part of school...

I saw this cute idea on The Crafty Crow and decided we could do it...The kids have loved it...It has taken us a few days...
We now have our fun path
I do have to explain this first picture though...
#1 - Notice the Shoeless, Coatless, Gloveless children on the doorstep in freezing (single digits) cold temperatures...They were just checking the ice and were excited to see them setting up so quick...they had opened the door excitedly so I grabbed the camera instead of the normal Coats, hat, gloves shoes routine:)
and #2 - It was Bekkah's Mismatch day...hence the colorful sleeves with a puple top and different socks...haha...she had to wear them ALL day

We planned a fun "Surprise" Birthday Party for my Dad on January 1. We planned to be there New Years Eve...That night, we stayed up way too late to decorate and put things together...I was in charge of the cake. It was so fun! I love fondant! it's like sculpting...it's just edible...I was going to line the extra top and green grass with chocolate covered raisins (one of his favorites) but since we left a day early... I ran out of time and the hill top just had to go rockless...He Loved it regardless...My Dad has been walking up his hill ever since I could remember...I think he walks about 4 miles a day. He always takes his walking stick, He my Mom and his two walking buddies, Curly and Ginger (they are not his dogs but they are faithfull walkers) The kids and I found some dogs and added a little paint to make them look like them. I also changed an army guy to look like my dad (I added a walking stick, tan cap, dark jacket, blue jeans and white shoes)
Bekkah and Madi totally Biffed it...
