This & That

I've been busy, and I've been lazy. Either way, my blog was ignored for a few days.

I had a cake to make for my friend, her son turned 1 over the weekend. I did a big bird cake, along with a big bird smash cake. They turned out ok, not great, but ok.

Over the weekend we went to the orchard. Not the far away one we wanted to try, but a different one, not our usual. The one we went to was ok, not as great as I thought it was going to be. The new playground that was supposed to be up and ready, wasn't. I didn't see any hay rides like their site says...maybe I just overlooked it. Anyways, we got a buttload of apples, some donuts, cider and a few other things. The kids had fun.
Here are a few pics:

I have made some applesauce with our apples. Not once, but twice. Today I did a double batch since the first went so quick. We've had some microwave baked apples too. Yummy.

Had to go to Hobby Lobby yesterday to get stuff to make Kelsey's homecoming dress. Wish me luck with that lol. We have a vision, it "should" be easy, but things that should be, never really turn out to be when it comes to me. If it doesn't turn out, Kels will just have to wear last years dress (God forbid!).

I was happy to see the return of Dancing with the Stars last night. Going to be watching again tonight, and tomorrow. I do hate the first week taking up 3 nights. Actually, I hate that the show takes up 2 nights every week. I wish it could all be done in one night. I'm looking forward to the return of Grey's Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, Private Practice, and a few others that I can't think of at the moment.

Miss Aubrey has gone pee in her potty about 5 times in the last few days. She only seems to do it around bathtime...but hopefully that will become more frequent soon. Right now as I type this, she has on no diaper or big girl pants, but she grabbed Kelsey's clothing, panties, skirt and shirt and 'put them on' all by herself. She is sitting in her little chair all proud of herself...I wonder if she'll be so excited she'll pee in Kelsey's clean clothes :) haha

We took a quick trip to the park the other day, but it started to rain...Here is a pic of Bree on the slide before we left.

Thats really about all I have to say at the moment...things aren't very exciting around here...

I like the big bird cakes I can't decorate cakes so it's pretty impressive to me.
