Yeah, I'm back. I have come to conclusion that there is no way in HE** I can catch up on all I have missed so I will just have to go from here. But oh how I have missed my blog and fellow bloggers. Its a whole different world and I am sad that I got so occupied that I missed out on it. Anyway, we are all doing good. Keagan is growing like a weed, talking up a storm and cute as a button. Farren is looking like a lady, not a kid anymore, has a boyfriend, and is actually enjoying helping me out, and Deakon got his tubes in his ears, and has been on a much better eating, sleeping, and behavior pattern. Thank goodness. Momma was stressed. Also, we got our bakery open and have been busy busy busy! So far, so good. We are just hoping that it stays that way. Just wanted to do a quick update for today. And hopefully I can get some pics of my pretty babies on here. Hope everyone had a great thanksgiving and is ready for christmas!!!!!

Worst Blogger ever.....

I realize I have been pretty much the worst blogger ever. We have seriously just had so much going on. I have had at least 3-6 cakes to make every weekend for the past 2 months, which usually keeps me busy from wednesday thru saturday and sometimes sunday. Anyway, I also got a job offer for a really good opportunity that I have been debating on taking. We have been shopping around for shops and equipment to open up a bakery too. So, I have been struggling which choice to go with. Do I take the secure path or the unsecure more rewarding one for my family? Gosh, I just hate these decisions. On top of that, we had Deakon's first birthday! I can't believe my little man is one. We had a carnival theme party and it was a blast. We also had his 1 year check up where he lost a little weight to 20 pounds 8 ounces. The doctor said becuase he has passed the walking stage and is literally running everywhere. He was 30 inches in length. They checked his ears and his STILL has fluid on them, so they have referred him to an ENT for tubes. We should have an appt within the next 4 weeks. I also had to take Keagan into the doctor the same day. She woke up running a 102.4 fever. She ended up having a sinus infection and they gave my little stinker some antibiotics. But we realized bubba is really catching up with her, she weighed in at 26 pounds and measured 35 1/2 inches! They really aren't that far apart! Farren has been gone to California to visit family since the 2nd, and won't be back until the 16th. Its really weird not having her here for this long. I am definitely ready for her to come home. And Chris has been working 12 hour days, 7 days a week for the last 3 weeks, so momma has been pretty much on her own. My niece and nephew were able to come help for a couple of days, but since my niece started working they had to go back! Anyways, I have a ton of pics to upload and more to write about, but I wanted to at least touch base with my fellow bloggers!!!! Hope everyone has enjoyed there summer!!!

Bath time....

I thought this pic was to cute not to share. I haven't got many pictures lately, I have been horrible. But I did take BOTH kids back to the doctor friday, and Deakons ears are clear....for now....but he now has a viral infection. DAMN. THE. LUCK. Keagan has a viral infection as well. She did awesome at the doctor. Normally she hates for them to touch her. But on this day, she let them do everything they needed to. Stepped right on the scale and stood against the measuring board. What a big girl. She weighed in at 26 pounds and was 35 inches tall. Deakon weighed in at 21 pounds 3 ounces and was 32 inches tall. How big both my babies are getting. I don't think it will be long before bubba catches up with Keagan.

More Cake projects from the weekend....

Still so so busy with other things, and need to get caught up on my blog. I have been horrible at taking pictures lately. Everyday seems to be consumed with doing something. I'm am going to try really hard to make sure and take some this week. Other than that, I thought I would put up what I have been doing. Hope everyone is having a great week!

We love having an ice cream truck!!!

Well, everyone that is except for Deakon, since our Ice Cream Truck comes around at like 8:45-9 at night. Oh well, he'll be awake one of these days and will get his first ice cream. As soon as Keagan hears the music she starts saying "Ice cream, come on, lets go!" and grabbing her daddys hand to go outside. Its too cute!

Mommy's little helper....

I had a couple of cakes to make this past weekend. And Keagan absolutely loves loves loves to "help" me with them. As you can see by the picture below, she does alot of snacking. I give her the spoon after I'm done with the cake mix, the spatula after i'm done with the icing, and always a piece of fondant so she can feel like she is doing something. Its too cute, and I love that she loves to help momma!!!!

The finished product. Happy 2nd Birthday Riley Lynn!!

I need to update with Deakons 11 month, and Keagan's 2 year and 6 month post. We have been so busy. I am making three more cakes this weekend. And Keagan got bit by a spider in her ear. It was nasty and draining, so I took her to the doctor to confirm if we needed to do anything else. They gave us some steriod cream and an antibiotic cream. Poor stinker. Bubba, has ANOTHER flippin ear infection, double at that. It hasn't even been 10 days since we got rid of the last double ear infection. WHAT THE HELL?? Apparently, you have to have so many within a certain period of time before the ENT will even see you though. This is our 4th since march. Not considering that one lasted a month and took 3 antibiotics to get rid of. So, doctor said one more this YEAR, before 2011 and we are going to the ENT for tubes. We can't make it 10 days, so i'm pretty sure we won't make it 6 months. Bah! Anyways, I'll get the other updates up as soon as I can.

On a side note, just wanted everyone to send a little "Happy Birthday" up to Kyle Brent Lowe. Today would have been his 29th birthday. Needless to say, hubby is having a rough day too. My poor babies, all of them. =(

Hurricane Harbor...

This past Sunday, we decided for fathers day that we would make a trip to hurricane harbor. This was Keagans first trip here, we decided to leave Deakon at my moms since he is still a bit to young to really enjoy it there. Farren, her friends, Haley, and Stephanie went with us as well. We ended up having SO. MUCH. FUN!!!! Keagan was the best kid all day long. She played and played and played. She rode the slides in kiddy land, but wanted to ride the big ones. She is still a little to small for the big rides. Only a couple more inches until she can do some. If she couldn't ride, she still was happy to watch everyone else that did. We were pretty much non stop all day long. The big girls loved it to, we all took turns riding rides, and we all spent a good part of the day on slides and kiddieland. We decided we should get season passes so we can go more often. Keagan was so tuckered, she fell asleep at 7 when we left and did not get up until 9:45 the next morning! I was very glad to see my little man when we picked him up. I'm just not used to being away from him for that long. I love love love fun family days like this. And having an awesome daddy to my kids to celebrate fathers day with!

What momma did this weekend...

I have been meaning to update, I promise I have. I have been getting occassional ones in here. But my days, evenings, and weekends seem to be so packed up right now. I have been thinking of going back to work, and have been to 3 interviews in the last two weeks for that. Also, Deakon has been sick for almost a month now. Ear infection, ear infection that didn't go away, finally it did, and then tonsalitis (sp?). Anyway, I THINK he is finally on the mend, he still has a small rash, but is in a much better mood and no temp. My neice and nephew came up and stayed with us for a few days, and we have finally transitioned Keagan to the BIG GIRL potty, no more little potty and having to empty it every time she goes. Thank god for that, now we just have to get her a stool she can use to get up there by herself. Also, I've been making cakes for birthdays and baby showers. All in all, momma has been busy. In return, my blog has been neglected. Anywho, here are the cakes I did this weekend. Hope everyone is doing well!!

I just love love love doing this!

2 feet baby....

As of Sunday the 13th, our little man is on 2 feet! He has started walking! How cool is that? It makes me sad and happy all at the same time. Happy because it is awesome, an amazing moment in our lives. And sad because, well, he is my last baby, and that kind of puts him out of the baby stage. He has been taking one step here and there, but sunday he took off with 3 or 4. He has been doing it several times a day since. And today daddy counted out 14, I think he likes this mobility!! What a big boy we have!!!

Farren's 13th Birthday party....

Saturday, we had Farren's 13th birthday party....whoa....this momma is getting old. =( I can't believe she is in her teen years now. In just a few short years she will be graduating and going off to college. What a sad sad day, well for me at least. Anyways, we had a wonderful turnout. She got lots of stuff as well as lots and lots of money. I think she got in the ballpark of about $350.00. i don't ever remember getting that at her age. But at least you know she is loved. We had lots of family, friends, and other little teen girls over. It was loud, fun, and crazy. The perfect party. We enjoyed some punch, hot dogs, homeade fries, and chips and dip. Our cake was a huge hit, and Farren absolutely loved it and the colors. The girls had a water balloon fight, and ended up using the water hose and the bucket as well. It was so much fun watching them chase after each other and squealing when they got wet. Some of the girls have already hit "that" stage, and did not want to get wet or mess up there hair. Boo, just do it, its all in fun, I say. It WAS lots of fun until I was talking and realized they were sneaking up behind and dumped a huge bucket of water all over me. Farren said,"Its like when you win a game mom, and you dump the gatorade all over the coach. Well, your the coach mom." Awwwww, how sweet is that. I'll take water any day down the back for that. All in all, is was lots of fun. And 5 girls stayed the night after. They had lots of fun and stayed up the majority of the night. Who didn't' though at there age?

Anyways, Happy Birthday my first born child, Mommy loves you so very much!
Happy 13th!!!!!
