Yes, folks I am still alive and kicking!! I know it's been a while but things around here have been very hectic!! Have spent the last 3 weeks preparing for Jared's 2nd birthday party. The theme was, of course, a barnyard bash!! We had a blast on Sat. Nine children and many adults filled our garage for an afternoon of fun. I have been preparing for months- literally!! We made a huge barn out of a refrigerator box and then some smaller ones for outside. We took the kids on a hayride to the barn to see the donkeys which was so much fun. But the food- well let's just say I will be catching up on my sleep this week. The barn cake was my challenge and at 9 pm on Friday night I thought I just couldn't do anymore. Then I went away from it for a while and finally it was done. If you ever want to make a barn cake- e-mail me and I will try to help you out!! The kids were great and it was a very special day. Now, back to a "normal" routine again. Keep watching for info on our upcoming Easter preview weekend at the shop- April 1 and 2.
