Playing Catch Up!

Wow! We have had a busy, but very fun weekend and week so far! We started our weekend with a garage sale on Saturday morning.


I was so skeptical because a) I attempted a garage sale last September and it failed miserably b) I attempted a garage sale last September and it failed miserably! But I am glad to say that it went very well! We didn't even get to take pictures the day of because we were so busy! Three other families participated with me and I think that helped a lot, we had a little bit of everything. I did get to experience a few customers that were quite the deal makers, but in the end I think everyone was successful! It was so nice to get rid of some things we don't need, make some room in our closets and make some money!

Saturday afternoon my grandparents arrived for a visit! They live in Ohio but are here to visit for the week. The boys have had so much fun with their MawMaw and PawPaw! My grandma's birthday was last Thursday so Sunday night I decided to make a cake for her and Andrew to share on his birthday.

I decided to try a recipe for a fondant cake because that is what I want to make for the boys' birthday party and I have never made one before. I used THIS recipe and I think it turned out great! It was easy, cheap and fun! I have a long way to go with my fondant skills, but overall I was pretty happy with how it turned out.





Monday morning we had a special birthday breakfast for Andrew.



He liked it so much he needed seconds when MawMaw and PawPaw arrived.



Monday night we went to dinner and then came home for presents and cake!




Andrew has yet to master the skill of blowing out his candles! haha


We have still been busily working on the house and in the yard. My grandparents are wonderful gardeners and I am so glad they have been here to help me! I can't wait to share pictures when we are all done!



  1. That cake turned out so well Linds! I don't think that you really needed "practice".

  2. Wow, you are very busy. So glad the garage sale went well.

    The cake was cute and you did a great job.

    Anxious to see pictures from the backyard.

    Take care
