I have no words....

This is what happened when I left the girls for 15 minutes to finish up a project on the computer.

Where did I go?

Hi there....long time no blog.  The past month has been busy, busy, busy.   We all have been super busy around here and it's only going to get busier as the holidays approach.  Did I just say holidays?  This can't be.   Are we almost to Halloween (the girls have been asking for weeks) and then Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here before we know it.  Wow!!  This year has gone by so fast. 

Roy has been really swamped at work.  Most nights after the girls are in bed, he is up late working.  He is stressed a lot of the times, but is thankful for his job.

I have been busy with cake orders, which I am so thankful for.  This is what I have wanted to do for quite some time and am blessed to have been able to follow my dream.  I've made a fall birthday cake, a goodbye cake (boo hoo), a green T-Rex cake, 200 cream cheese mints, a Rod End cake, Rootbeer cupcakes, and a 3-tiered Halloween Haunted House cake for this weekend.  I have so far 4 more orders for November.   Yeah!!

The girls have been busy with school and preschool.  Caroline is reading like crazy and enjoys being part of the AR program.  She loves telling me about her tests she takes.  Funny!  She always has a story to tell the minute she gets off the bus about another student doing something funny or getting in trouble.    Makenzie loves being in preschool and can't wait to share her day with me as soon as I pick her up.  We can't leave until she rips everything out of her bag to show me her arts and crafts, her library book or a note for me.  My favorite is when she sings me the songs they have learned. 

Here we are at Apple Works on a Mops outing. 

Even though we have been super busy, we have been able to stop and enjoy the season.
