Cakes, Caves, Chaos

My last cake class for course one was last night so I want to show you my last cake of the class. I really enjoyed the class, I feel like I learned a lot! I have been practicing on large cookies and cakes that I have brought to church and I think I am getting the hang of it.

I haven't written in awhile. Life is busy. I didn't realize what a big adjustment it was going to be with O going into Kindergarten. We had a parent teacher conference last night and I cried. I am such a nut! I just worry about my little baby girl. The things they have to know in Kindergarten blows my mind!!! O is doing good just need to work on some areas where she is a little behind. I am just going to work with O (and try not to pull my hair out) and pray that God will let this information stick and she will become a smarty pants like her daddy!

My MOMS 4 KIDS group is going pretty well. This school year I have started doing field trips such as; a Krispy Kreme tour (you can call and set up a tour) the kids had a blast! We went to a pumpkin patch, got a pumpkin and had a hayride, fun! We are going to Fun City next month! I also started making a theme for each month. Last month was COLOR. We dress in a different color each week, we made play dough for the craft of the month, we only colored with the color of the week. It turned out cute. November is going to be a month of MANNERS. I thought that was appropriate because of thanksgiving and being thankful and all. Also two months ago my mother in-law and myself taught (the ladies that wanted to in the group (about 5 women)) how to make sock hats. We are giving them to the NWA Children's shelter! We have about 40 hats made and they are so cute! So that is what is going on in my moms group.

About two weeks ago we went camping at Devils Den. It was our first time to go camping with the kids and they had a blast. They did the caves, wow my kids are braver than I am! It was fun. We went with family from Tulsa (Hi Terina) and Grandpa and ma! We are already ready to go again!

I guess I am going to bring this up too, while I am at it. I went to an auction this weekend. I thought I was in trouble with Jason last time... Oh no buddy, this weekend was much worse! I bought a dresser and mirror, Foosball table, two side tables, a office filing table that I am using for a sofa table, a DVD player (that doesn't work, oops), a pressure washer, a tent, home accent pieces, a few toys, and I think that is about it. Yikes, I think I am not allowed to go to an auction ever again.

What a gorgeous cake Jenna! I knew it wouldn't take you long to figure it out and knock 'em out of the park.

I'm speechless about the auction. Well, not really but I absolutely love it when that spontaneous side of you jumps out and then you find yourself in a little pickle afterwords. I can't get enough of your adventures!! Ooh, and I like the title of this post :D.

(at least that's how the scene plays out in my fantasy world! lol)

Hey Jenna! I just came across this website today by accident and you are the perfect person to pass it on to. In case you have any cake decorating nightmares, here's a place to go that is sure to make you feel better. :)

I love the cake! What a beautiful artistic creation! I'm so impressed.

The auction--can I just say... I love auctions. It would be best to keep me far away. I'm glad I'm not alone.

I wanna see picts of the pickins!
