Another Birthday

I can't believe my little girl turns three this week. I wish my little ones wouldn't grow so fast. I can't seem to enjoy them enough, the funny things they do or say. Some of the funny looks that come across their faces. I wish I could keep them this way. Yet I can't wait to see more and like a book whats going to happen next?
So since it is Tabby's birthday next week and paw paw was here to visit over the weekend we had her party a week early. Jason went to baking again to see what he could create. He always lets me do some of the fun stuff and decorate. We are still working on it we are not pros yet. I would like to make more so we could practise but my new years resolution is to lose some weight by August. So having a lot of cake around the house wouldn't be a wise thing for me. I so like cake with my coffee.
I think making the cakes is a lot cheaper than buying them. Jason makes the fondant out of marshmallows, and I find the cake mix at Aldis for .89 cents a box. Its a lot of fun to do and I haven't been able to find cakes like these in the stores. My mom found the barbie at a goodwill store (new never been out of the box) for only a couple of dollars. You know me I don't have the money to just go and spend, so I cut corners ever where I can. If I don't know how to do something I am going to learn how. It doesn't always turn out the first time but I sure have a lot of fun trying.


  1. I use to make Barbie cakes for my girls too! I never put them on a round cake as a base...but how I wish I did, that is a great idea!
    The cake that you have pictured is beautiful!
    I too get sad when the babies grow up! Where in the heck does the time go? They say "Time flies when you are having fun!" So raising children must be loads of fun!!!

  2. OMGoodness,the doll was already a cowgirl? That so fits you guys! lol I love it,too cute!!
    How in the world does he make fondant out of marshmallows? You tell him that I want to know! lol
