All About lil o' Me

My photo
Just call me your Budget Barista. I have been married for 20 years to the best man on this planet. He's sweet, caring, kind, but most of all he makes me laugh. We have Three adorable kids. A beautiful sweet pea girl, A 'superman' boy, and a love bug baby girl. We just love that we live where people vacation...where the ocean meets the sky. We live a wonderful life. I love my life and I thank Christ for giving it to me. Some random things about me are I enjoy baking, quilting, paper crafting, jewelry making, scrapbooking, and loving on my family. I am a Princess in the Kingdom of the King of Kings, diet coke drinking baby kisser. We are a homeschooling family but are part of a hybrid program where the children attend a 'classroom' 2 days a week and we do the rest at home. It's a blast. We also love to vacation and explore God's world around us. I think that's enough for now. :-)

Little man's cupcakes were so fun!

We wanted to combine the kids' B-days. Coming up with something that "matched" or that could be co-ed was a little hard. So choosing "like" colors came to me and we went with Black, Red, and White. As you saw yesterday, I made a ladybug cake for the baby. I then made cupcakes with "cars" on them for lil man.  I used Black icing that looked like the color of tires...even when they put it in their mouth.  All the kids landed up with black lips, black tongues, and black fingers. It was so FUN!  We went through a ton of wipes to get it off their little fingers, mouths, and more.  It was a wonderful day Playing pin the race car on the track for the boys and pin the ladybug on the flower for girls.  Then we played red light, green know cars have to stop and go at the lights.  The kids bounced on the bounce house like a bunch of Tiggers, played on the playground like little monkeys. We had a GREAT time.  I wonder what I'll do next year...?
