CAKE! :)

Last night Braeden and I made a cake. He's been dying to do so ever since his neighbor friend's mom told him they would make one sometime and that he could help. He's asked me every day since if he could go there to make the cake, but each time she hasn't done so. For Braeden, saying it's going to happen isn't a "going to happen sometime in the future" thing, it doesn't bode well for him. So, I decided we might as well do it since there were some time I was wanting to try anyway. (I'll give you the site at the end since their's are MUCH better! LOL)

Here's Chef Braeden ready to start. My parents gave the kids these hats and aprons on their recent visit...

Braeden's friend was able to come over and help with the mixing...

As I was getting ready to frost the cakes (Braeden was playing outside and too busy to help, he did his egg cracking which is his favorite part aside from licking the batter off the mixer), Liam came over and stuck his smiley face next to the cake for a picture. The SECOND I took the picture, he turned his head and did this...

What a STINKER! LOL (It's a good thing his tongue didn't touch that cake! LOL)

And, our finished product...

Even the small pieces I cut for each of us were too much! SO rich!!!

Here's the site where we got the inspiration...


I LOVE the kit kat one with M&Ms and the peppermint one for Christmas! We may have to make more! I just can't figure out why their's look so much boxier I guess than mine? Unless they made the sides taller and filled in a lot of candy on top. Hmmm.... Still like ours though!

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
