Is this thing still on?

Hi! I'm still here, I promise! I've just been super busy (which is a really good thing)!

School is starting just around the corner, and this year the boys are going to be going to cyberschool instead of an actual, physical school building. We are all really excited about this!

Sookie is doing wonderful. She really is too cute for her own good, which makes it hard to scold her for being bad sometimes. She is just about six months old now and really keeps us, and Milo (our JRT) on our toes. Milo tolerates her most of the time, but lately, she always seems to have one part or another of him in her mouth - she particularly likes his ears or his tail. The one really good thing as of late is that she FINALLY figured out how to get down all of the stairs in the house. Before yesterday, she could get up the stairs, but not go down them - we would have to carry her down the stairs, earning her the nickname "The Queen". "Would The Queen like to go downstairs now?" We definitely love her more each day!




I'll use that last photo to transition into the other big part of my life right now - CUPCAKES! I finally found something that I love to do and am happy to get out of bed every day to bake! I didn't feel that way about my old job at all. I have a few weddings coming up, and I will be very happy to share those with you as I complete those jobs. I don't even really look at it as a job because I have so much fun doing it! The backdrops you'll see in the following photos are simply scrapbook papers (that I got on sale at Michaels - LOVE that store!!).

I'll do another post soon (I promise) of Dave's vacation - he took two weeks this year) and the Civil War wedding I took pictures at as a favor to the groom!

Well, I'm off to start baking for the day - thank you for those who still peek in and I'll try to do better about blogging when I have the time!
