Nolan's Elmo Cake



This is Nolan's Elmo cake we made today. I think it turned out pretty cute. I got a nice picture of him blowing out his candle.

My baby turns 2 today!


A bittersweet moment for us. Our baby turns 2 today. He is getting so big and learning more and more words each day. He loves Elmo, Veggie Tales and Ninja Turtles. I am attempting to make an Elmo cake today. Hopefully it will turn out nice. I will post pictures if it does. All right I will post them regardless:)

I took down the high chair and put away a few toys that he has outgrown. He will be getting some new toys today that I am sure he will enjoy. I did get him some new Elmo sippy cups that he really did need:) He also got a big Fisher Price Little People dump truck and a Veggie Tales movie and some more little people. Daddy picked him up a little tool set, since he always tries to take off with ours. I am sad but excited at the same time. He has a great little personality and loves to put on hats and play with big brothers cars. He still loves to cuddle and give hugs and kisses.

He is getting old enough now to where big sister (she is almost 4 in December) loves to play with him and sometimes she gets a bit bossy and pushy. We are working on that. We hope to give our little guy a special birthday. He may not remember it but we will. Of course there will be some picture taking and singing Happy Birthday. He does know this song well. Well I better get started on that cake. I may post some pictures of my big boy later.

Still wondering what I will be when I grow up


I am a 28 year old momma, wife, sister, friend, daughter, housekeeper, personal shopper, and basic CEO of the functions of our household, including the top chef and occasional photographer. I love being a mom but I know I have more talents than that. I love to write and sing and I do enjoy having a job outside the home, frugal shopping is another hobby of mine that I am getting quite good at. I also write on my blog and post about my frugal finds.

When I was younger I remember wanting to be a writer, teacher, singer or vet. I used to love animals until I found out I am allergic to most. My love was toned down a bit but I still like to pet the occasional cat or dog as long as it is not mine :) I still love to write and I am starting to read more like I used to.

I go to a book club once a month but I even reading more then the book club book. I still figuring out my life and what to do with it. Of course one of the most important jobs is being a mom and helping to mold my children's minds with morals and knowledge.

The point of my rambling on is we all have a purpose given to us by God to fulfill. Even if it is being the best person and mom you could be. I realize he will guide us in the right direction and we will never be truly satisfied until we meet that purpose. We started going to a different church nearby our house. I hope to find my purpose there or maybe my purpose is to be a mom that is more involved in volunteering in the church or outside of the church.

Whatever is in store for me I must be satisfied with my current status in order to get more responsibilities. Although it seems I have plenty to do at the moment and should be busy around the clock. I am blessed that I am able to stay home with my kids at the moment and be a part of their world and day. My purpose could also be to watch them and learn from their childlike nature.
