Spring is (finally) here!

Sorry for the lack of posts! We have been working on the kitchen, enjoying spring needless to say, the blogs have fallen behind!

The weather this past week has been really nice so every day after work/school, we have played outside with Jonathan before time for dinner and bath. Intrinsically, he knew what to do with dandelions. Of course, it didn't help the mild allergy symptoms he has experienced lately, but it was pretty cute. Check out those cheeks!




Jonathan was too excited to get out his Cozy Coupe and his house from last year. For some odd reason, every time I tried to talk to him while he was in the play house, he roared at me, thus the odd look on his face.




Oh, and I finally had the opportunity to make a cake with both the stand mixer and a dishwasher. It was AMAZING. This one went to Jonathan's school for Teacher Appreciation Week. It's French vanilla with raspberry preserves between the layers, topped with raspberry vanilla butter cream frosting. The flowers are blueberries and almond slivers, idea courtesy of Rachael Ray. I didn't eat any, but I hear it was delicious. Or should I say "Yum-O!"

Don't you ever roar at Bryan for no apparent reason? I thought everyone did that! HEHE! Looks like he having some fun in the yard. And your cake sounds DELISH!

Wow. That cake is AMAZING. My kids have to be drug (dragged??) forcibly into the house every evening too. And the pollen is killing them but they don't care while they're out there!

We have been loving the outside also...even though it means she up coughing all night due to the pollen. I seriously thought my car had been paintballed by some Fairmont State kids there was so much yellow on it! My whole porch was covered too. I hope this rain today washs it all away.

How cute! I love those puffy little cheeks! I love it that it's light out until after 8 now, but I bet it wreaks havoc on a little boy's bedtime!

Love the cake, too. The almond petals are so sweet!
