Nine years and counting

Geoff and I are celebrating our 9 year anniversary today (April 22nd).
Here are just a few pictures of that wonderful day.
I am so happy to be married to such a wonderful man, and we are still in love, more than we were then. We have done a lot since we have been married, school, kids, business...and much more, we have struggled, like every other couple out there, but we have learned to lean on each other during the hard times, and enjoy all the happy times together as they come.

I wanted to post a few more pics, but the scanner was being complicated, but these are just a few of my favorites.

finally some pictures of my cakes

I finally decided to take a minute and put pictures of my cakes up. I am having a lot of fun with these, and wish I could make more than what I do, but there really isn't a need to make a lot of them (we don't really eat cake), and I don't have all the time in the world to do it. Each cake takes me about 5 days from start to finish, although I can do it faster, if I give myself time I'm happier with the end result. Please leave me comments, I would love to hear what people think of these. Thanks
I think I might be most proud of this green one, I finished this one last night. I made the roses out of fondant a few days ago. I was excited that I got the green color I wanted, I was afraid it would be too bright.

This one is the exception to my 5 day rule. I decided to make a cake for my friends daughter for her birthday, I put this one together on sunday. It is also my first cake using buttercream frosting for the whole thing. Sorry that the pics are backwards, the camera showed them the correct way.

This is cake number 3.

and cake number 4. (after watching amazing wedding cakes I really wanted to make a purse cake.

the happiest kids

I love this picture of the two of them, they are starting to play more together, which I love to see. Emma does such a good job taking care of him, if I am busy with something she will go sit by him and talk to him or read to him. I love it.

James loves his swing sometimes, especially when bees move. I think he would like it more, but since this is where he sleeps at night sometimes he thinks that he is being put to bed, when really I just need to put him down.
The johnny jump up is a favorite of his, he loves to be in it and bounce, I am looking for a jumperoo so that way it can be more portable, we'll see if I can find one for a decent price.

I love it when he smiles. He is such a happy baby.
