Mommy to Bee Cupcakes

it seems like all my updates are centered on cupcakes. I mark the days on my calendar by cupcakes, I dream of cupcakes and I want to sell cupcakes...I have gained 10 there is a downside to this new venture, hobby, obsession.
but here are the lastest, these were for a baby shower with the theme of "Mommy to Bee".

We liked these and even recovered from an toy truck envolved accident (Max dropped a truck on top of one bunch). No one was hurt in the accident, thought there was a point where I thought Heather was gonna have a stroke or strangle Joey who was holding Max at the time.

Heather promised to take some pictures with her cell phone if the frosting turned people's teeth blue. We tested on Emily and Morgan and it is a great way to see who is not brushing their teeth very well.

Hail to the Birthday CupCake Queen

This was a new one we did - Cup - Birthday - Cake. It was loaded with frosting and candies.

These were another order of princesses that we did for a Birthday. They looked smashing in their dresses and crowns.

You need to get your name out there

Saw this on the MAKE magazine blog.  It may be a way for you to get noticed for your cupcakes.

I am sure Joey could help with the electrical.

Top ten list - my kids

I thought it would be fun to do a list here and share. Then each of you could respond and share a similar list. I think it is fun when we share unique stuff and thought, heaven know we have our fair share.

Tag!! You're It!

Things I love about my kids:
10. They do know how to clean their room. Knowledge is power.
9. They know how to ride a bike, and not afraid to go out and ride - biker chicks rock.
8. My girls both say they want to grow up to be mommys and Jakey likes to pretend to be a daddy giving piggy back rides to his stuffed bear.
7. They ALL run to the door when daddy comes home - "I'm so glad when Daddy comes home..."
6. They love their Nana, Papa, Grandma and Grandpas.
5. They love to get mail and would rather get mail than email.
4. They all can say "I love you" and not just to me.
3. They all love Primary. And they sing the primary songs in the car. I love that I can turn off the radio and hear them singing such special words.
2. They all can imagine and play...pots and pans with water are gourment meals, laundry baskets are zoo cages, and blankes and pillows make forts.
1. I see a little glimmer of heaven when I look in their eyes and we are all there together.
