My First wedding!

I survived my first wedding! I was up until 2am pretty much all week last week, and till 4am on Friday. Then worked Saturday morning and successfully dropped off my cake bites at 3pm. The bride wasn't there. So I set them up and that was it. The table was getting flowers added to it and also to the top of the tier.

So here they are:

Cake Bites

Last week was also a busy week because my baby learned how to crawl! I need to get a video on here. I took one, but the size is to large to upload. With his new found skills he is on the go and into everything. He steals poor Makaylee's toys, and tries to grab her snacks. He also went from 3 naps a day to 2. So they no longer nap together. So sad :( Kaiden naps in the morning, then Makaylee's turn to nap in the mid afternoon, then Kaiden in the later afternoon. No break for Mommy. Which is bad for the house and Mom, but good for the kids. Because now they each have their own special Mommy time.

We took the kids to the fair yesterday and Makaylee LOVED it! We were so surprised at how well she did. They both loved all the animals. Which is no surprise. Makaylee has always loved the animals. She even had a conversation with a Llama. Well the Llama was talking and Makaylee was copying the noises right back to him. She thought she was pretty cool. We then went to the rides, and knowing our little chicken we were not expecting much. She did wonderful! She loved the giant slide, went on the air balloons that go up and down, swings, canoe ride, boats, and the slide some more. Oh and the carousel. Makaylee use to be terrified of the carousel and she loved it. We bought tickets to see the doodlebops on Sunday at the fair, and I am sure we will be riding more rides. I promise to post pics soon.

Got Boxes???

Cause I do! I have about over 1000 of these boxes:
Here they are in the garage:
Yup, I better do something with this baking business cause I need to start getting rid of these boxes! Time to set up my Etsy website so I can ship. If you can believe it I got all of these boxes for free from someone on Craigslist. She has a flower/cake business and got a ton of these boxes and did not have room to store them all. So she was giving them away for free. Well, I could not pass up free!!!! They are so perfect for the cake bites! They are in the 1/2 lb size, and a full pound size. Almost all in red, and about 1 box of gold.

Halloween Costumes

Ok, so I am trying to figure out what the kids are going to be for Halloween. We have narrowed it down to three choices I think and I would like opinions! So here are the options:

Makaylee loves Jojo's Circus, and she has a pet Lion named Goliath. So here is what they look like for those who have never heard of the show:

Here is the Jojo Costume
This would be the Lion Costume for Kaiden, they do make it in his size:
Makaylee also loves Ariel So here is a toddler Ariel Costume, though I don't know if we could get her to keep on a wig, Maybe spray her hair red for the night or something instead:
And of course flounder for Kaiden:
Last would be Cinderella and a mouse. I cannot find a brown mouse like the mice in Cinderella, but I think this white mouse is super cute:
And Cinderella for Makaylee even though she is not blong :)

I wish I could get her to watch Snow White because I think having her be Snow White and Kaiden Dopey would be to cute, but she is not a fan of Snow White. That, and I have never seen a baby Dopey costume for Kaiden. But maybe just a green toddler robe and purple hat and i am sure everyone would get the point that he is Dopey. Hmmmmmm. Maybe that as an option as well. She does have the hair for Snow White! I know I was Snow white several times when I was little because I had the hair for Snow White as well :) Please post a comment and let me know what you think!
