First words and fall

Molly has been saying "dada" for quite some time now. She loves her b's and d's. So lately we'be been trying to practice mama. Yesterday she finally said it! I was so excited.

We are already getting close to Molly's 1st birthday--I can't believe it. Time goes by so fast. Any ideas for a cute theme? I want to see if I can make a cute cake too. So if you have easy cake ideas, I'd love those too! Keep in mind that I am no cake maker. I've always wanted to take those Wilton cake decorating classes, but never have yet. Maybe one day.

~Fall is on its way~

Don't you just love fall? It is definitely my favorite season and I look forward to it every year. I love the smell, the leaves, the jacket weather, and the anticipation of the holidays and time with friends and family. This week the weather has been a bit cooler and it has been so nice! I think I will even dig in our storage bins and find my decorations this year. Last year I didn't bother, but I don't think I can go another year without getting them out. Decorating for the holidays is half the fun, right?

I LOVE is my favorite. I was getting all giddy when I was reading your post because I get so excited for fall and the upcoming holidays. P.S. I didn't forget your birthday, I know that it is on the 27th. Obviously I was just doing the beginning days of September silly :0) LOL

Yeah I love the fall too! Try maybe parenting magazine for cake ideas, or google it. That is where I found Drew's monkey cake. If you are going to have a bunch of pieces to cut and frost, cut them out the day before, wrap them in plastic and freeze them. Then take a piece out at a time and frost it. By the time you serve it it still taste great! Good luck!

It is still 90 degrees here! It sees that it takes a little longer for fall to roll around, but once it does it is amazing.

I would love to take pictures for you anytime I am in town!
