16 Weeks Pregnant

I can't believe it's been 16 weeks already! Feeling a lot better now and I have my desire to cook back! We have been eating a lot of Asian foods for dinner (Pho, pad thai, chow mein, sushi, rice, Vietnamese beef stew, other Chinese dishes... etc.). Fruit sounds great. I think my first offical craving for this pregnancy would have to be kim chi. I eat it with everything. =) Jacob thinks I'm crazy. Anyway, everything is going great!

Jocelyn's 2nd Birthday

I always wanted to post these, but I guess I forgot. Here are some pictures from Jocelyn's 3rd birthday. I made her a Maisy cake that she loved! I loved making it too although it took me a while to make. It was my first time working with marshmallow fondant. It actually turned out pretty tasty. It was a banana cake with cream cheese frosting inside. When I asked her what she wanted on her cake she said Maisy, Tallulah, and Charley. Then after I was finished making the cake she asked me why Eddie wasn't on the cake! I told her she didn't say that she wanted him on there and there wouldn't have been room for him. For those who are not familiar with Maisy, Eddie is the big elephant! Haha.

Natalie's 1st Birthday

I don't think I ever posted these pictures of Natalie's first birthday. We were in Arizona with Jacob's family when we celebrated her birthday. I made her a Chinese cake with fruit inside and at that time Natalie was into Cinderella and could even say "Cinderella." That was why I used the same Cinderella figure from Jocelyn's 2nd birthday cake.The Cinderella figure was from my cake when I was little. Thank you mom for saving it!

Pokeball Cake

Here is a Pokeball cake from Pokemon. I decorated the cake for my friend's son's 10th birthday. It was so fun decorating this cake. I love any reason to make/decorate a cake!

Yummy All Fruit Smoothie

Who needs McDonalds all fruit smoothie when you can just make some at home? I actually never tried their smoothies, but heard that they were pretty good. I love my Magic Bullet because you can drink out of the same cup you make your smoothie in. Here is another all fruit smoothie recipe:

1 ripe banana
1/3 - 1/2 c frozen strawberries
1/3 - 1/2 c froze blueberries
Orange juice to cover 3/4 of the fruit
Enough water to cover the fruit
1 T honey

Blend and enjoy! I am enjoying one right now. =)

Family Picture

I can't believe that I forgot to post "the" family picture with the other ones. This was the best one of us. I think we did a pretty good job. I had to set up the tripod and run over in time for the picture. Natalie insisted that she had to sit on my lap. =)

Family Pictures

Here are some family pictures we took on Labor Day at a near by park. The weather was great for flying a kite! The kids had a blast eating their lollipops too. Natalie liked to bite her lollipop, while Jocelyn only wanted to lick hers. Of course Natalie drooled all over her shirt and got her face, neck, and hair all sticky! What a fun day!
