Baby Clare's Christening

Our great niece- Clare Elizabeth

Chris, Clare, Marla & Doug
(daddy, mommy & grandpa)


more cousins
Lindy, baby Hadlie, Kate, Hallie & Molly

Clare's christening was beautiful.
And she did so well.
Later at the restaurant we got
to hold her. She's such a tiny thing after lugging
around a couple 5 year olds!
She sure puts a sparkle in her parents eyes and
her Grandpa is like a proud peacock!

Is It A Frog Or A Toad??

"Mom, mom!! I caught a frog!!"

"In my butterfly net!"

"No, you put it in the bug bucket!"

"Is it a frog or a toad?"

My "Job"

Not long after I graduated
from high school I made and tried
to decorate a birthday cake.
It wasn't to bad I guess, considering I
didn't have a clue what to do.
Then in 1985 I made my first tiered cake,
with LOTS of help from a cake decorator friend.
(It was my grandparents 50th anniversary cake)
And the rest is history!
I have made countless cakes over the years.
For every kind of celebration there is.

Like this castle cake.
For a one year old princess!

And first communion cakes.

as well as many other kinds.
check them out here.

Over the years I only decorated for
family and friends. Working
full time left little time for too
much extra. I still kept pretty busy though.
Then came my precious girls!!
I was able to quit my full time job
to care for them. What a
dream job I have now!!
This allows me to accept more
cake decorating and is now
considered my job too. It is
truly great being able to work from home.

Room Rearrangement

While the girls were at school
today I decided to clean and
rearrange their room some.
Mamaw had bought them posters for
the wall. I had to
move the bed out to hang them, so I cleaned.
You would not believe all the stuff I found under there.
Mostly on Lindy's side of the bed!!
I found empty candy wrappers, broken toys and uneaten vitamins!!
(she admitted to it too)
As well as a million toys and stuffed animals.

They were surprised when they got home
and seem to like the changes,
especially the posters.

Let The Games Begin!

May 9th, 2010
Molly & Lindy played in
their first soccer game!

They both did really well.

It will take a few games for them to
understand it, but they had a blast.

They are sponsored by
The Cutting Edge Salon!
(that where we get our hair cut)
All the kids did great and it's so cute to watch.
They are so proud when they do good and of course
we cheered like crazy!
Mamaw & Papaw are their biggest fans!

Zoo Pet

Lindy says
"Mom, can we go to the zoo pet today....
but I don't want to pet that big chicken!"
Every year some of the high school kids sponsor a small
petting zoo in the Ag shop. Last year Lindy was terrified of the turkey
and remembered that from last year.

This year they had this neat tractor on display.
We thought papaw would like it.

Molly petting the horse.

Lindy liked all the animals that were in cages.

This goat was really friendly.

Again, Molly petting the rabbit.
I couldn't get Lindy to pet many animals.
But she didn't cry this year!

Easter 2010

I love dressing these girls up. Really, I think I could put potato sacks on them and they'd look beautiful.

Here they are ready for church. The weather this year was wonderful.

After church we went to my parents for some good grub!



We are so very blessed and thank God every day for bringing these two precious ones to us.

Proud grandparents!
Molly & Lindy love them dearly.

another good one
