The Birthday Girl!!!

Believe it or not I have pictures!!!!!  Okay, the cupcake in the middle is my little cutie--Daughter #5!  You thought I was talking about the cupcake, eh?


  Cupcakes have never been my favorite to bake, or any confections for that matter.  I much rather make a huge Thanksgiving meal with all the trimmings that make a pan of brownies from a box.  I just don't like making sweets...weird, huh?  Anyway, back to the cupcakes, I always thought the liners were boring!  You know, plain pastel colors, yuk!  BUT I was so excited when I saw that Kroger's carried designer liners!!!!!  So I started making cupcakes for my nesters!  {i know, other places carry designer liners, but i never look any place else except Kroger's!}


Now, the cupcake cake...I saw the pan at Michael's and just had to have it. Okay, that's not totally true, I thought it was adorable and wanted it. A friend gave me a 50% off coupon and I bought it last week.  Perfect for birthdays along with extra cupcakes in designer liners!!!  The pan has two 'sides' to it, one side for the 'cake' mold and the other for the 'icing' mold.  I cut and layered the bottom of the cake.  The white icing is homemade cream cheese icing, and the 'icing' cake top is canned chocolate mixed with leftover cream cheese icing.  {i am not much of a decorator when it comes to cakes, i do much better with cards and crafts}  Anyway, for my first time working with it, and being HOT in the kitchen...it had to bake at 325 for 60 minutes, then the regular cupcakes for 20 minutes, not too bad.  It was yummy!

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.



Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!







Graduation 2017 Post

Finally, here are pictures from Son #6 and Daughter #5's graduation.  I finally figured out what I was doing wrong downloading pictures!!








They Said "I Do" and Here We Grow Again!!

"I do!"  Lovely words.  Son #4 and Bride were married on the 31st of March.  After weeks of planning they are finally married and home from their honeymoon!  (pictures to follow soon)   We are pleased to have a new daughter in the family!

Speaking of new...yes, a new babe is growing...Daughter #1 and Son-in-love #1 are expecting their second child in the fall!  Grandson E told us!  At first we just looked at him, dead silence in the room, and looked at his momma...and she was smiling!  YAY!  Our "grand" total will be 11 come fall!!!!!!

Soon we will meet Granddaughter E...!  Eight weeks until her due date...but will probably meet her in the next few weeks!  Everyday in the womb is a day of victory!

That's all for now!  I have had to update this about 3 times!  It has been in my "save" for several weeks!  As soon as I get a few minutes of free time I will be back!
