Heres an update on whats been going on with my little family since I posted last time. The good news...There are pictures!!!

I did my first Actual wedding cake several weeks ago, for a couple at church. This is a beginning shot...

Back off Ladies!! That handsome man is my hubby!! Bless his heart, he helped me hand-dip dozens of truffles to top off the wedding cake. Many a womans dream...A cute, sweet man...with CHOCOLATE!!!!! Yay!

The final product, set up at the reception.....

I am SO proud of this cake!!!!!

The remains of the cake halfway through the reception. Never before have I seen a cake demolished like this one!!!

On our way to Tennessee to get Mark's new bicycle...

"I got a new bicycle, I got a new bicycle!!!"

"Please stop taking my picture! how many pictures of me driving do you need?"

Maggie May, in her birthday bandanna, on her way to stay with Cassie and Granny (Mark's Mom) while we do a bicycle ride in Hartwell, GA.

"Make the cold air come out FASTER!!!"

I love this shot...notice we are on the wrong side of the road, on the other side of the double yellow line!

On our way to drop Maggie back off at her Granny's house so we can go to Gatlinburg, Tennessee! Mark was so excited, he had us leave at 5 am!

So thrilled to be in the mountains, even being stuck in stand-still traffic in the park doesn't even upset him!

At Newfound Gap...

On our way to Clingman's Dome...

At Clingman's Dome. All the dead trees are fir trees. There is an aphid killing all of the Frasier Firs in the Smokies.


Oops... sorry it's been so long. With my vacation last week, Ive been dealing with some needy animals around here. My babies told me that I was not allowed to use my computer until they got some one on one time with their mommy. Maggie and Mister are both still a little needy, but Maggie is playing with her daddy at the moment, and Mister is sleeping on the headrest of my chair, sleeping and occasionally waking up to run his nose through my hair.

We had company for about 10 days, and 'the kids' are still recovering. Mark's Mom and sister went to visit one of his other sisters in Arkansas, so we watched their 'babies' while they were gone. We made it through with no major arguments between the kids, but my poor house has suffered the wrath or 3 dogs and a cat all fighting to make it smell like 'their territory'. Were still trying to get it all cleaned up. And, to top it all off, my washing machine is on the fritz, so Sunday, we went and spent 4 hours and about $60 at the laundromat, washing and drying about 25 loads of dirty, smelly, dog hair covered clothes, blankets, sheets, towels, and rugs. Yuck!
