How does a baby

go from this 

to this

 in a matter of 24 hours?  
Stomach Virus?

A Conversation with Ava

Me:  “AJ did you know what Sarah has a baby in her tummy?”  

AJ: (pensive look oh her face) “Well did it taste good?”
Me:  “Um, I don’t know but I will ask her” (try not to die laughing)
AJ:  “Babies must be tasty!”
Me:  die laughing! 

The Cake Part 2

So here is what Kohen’s Blue’c Clues cake ended up looking like.  I think for my first real cake I did good.  

Black and White Cupcakes that were frosted to look like paw prints.

I had to make another cake to get a second ear. 

The first thing the bo went for was the strawberr.  My boy loves his berries!

So what you think?

Happy Birthday My Sweet Boy. Life has not been the same since you joined “The Gang”. The giggles and smiles you give us everyday are truly a blessing we will be eternally thankful for.

The cake part one

So you might ask “Lovelace how do you get your son so messy with birthday cake?” and I would answer “Oh that, first you decide to have test run of the cake you will be making for The Boy’s party.” “Well Dear Reader, its really quite simple first look up a recipe for buttercream icing. Whip that up while you bake your cake for the night”.

‘While that one is in the oven mix up the batter for the official party cake and be sure to make it look pretty before putting it in the oven.”

“Lastly you should test the pattern on the cake you are baking for the test run and make it look pretty. Testing is very important because it will let you see how to cut the 9×13 sheet cake to look like the dog. Making a test cake will allow you to see what won’t work and what will leave you with a one eared dog.” Oh and I lied (:P) for real the last thing you should do is let your son have at it.
Follow all these steps and you will surely have a son who will look like this at the end of the night.
Tomorrow’s will look like blue and not Sprinkles but I thought this would be cute and still use the pattern. I moved his nose (the strawberry) to fit the candle.


Video of Kohen before he turns one tomorrow. I love his lip when he talks and the sweet sound of his raspy voice!

MHR Valentine’s Day

Katy asked that we post our first Valentine’s Day story. Kev and I celebrated our first Valentine’s Day my freshman year in college. We went to eat at Tripps which is a restaurant at Broadway at the Beach in Myrtle Beach. I remember we went to eat with my girlfriend Sarah and her then boyfriend. I also remember we stayed up late and played spades with the other couple. It was a fun evening and so sweet to have Kevin drive down to SC from VA to be with me. He has been doing things for me since the beginning of our relationship.

So this week I had determined pretty early in the week why he rocked then I got 2 more added reasons as the week progressed. I have to decided if I should share them all or save them up for a week when he hasn’t rocked so much 😉

  1. On Monday I asked Kevin to go to spin class with me. He doesn’t really like it because he hates the cardio workout it gives him. He reluctantly agreed, but told me he wasn’t going to work that hard and didn’t need a towel or anything. This makes me a little sad because I am making him do something he really doesn’t want to and what kind of wife am I impose my likes on him? One who is trying very hard to lose weight, I guess. Anyway, I looked over to him at the end of class and he was panting as hard as I was. Then he gave me that great smile and wink, that melts my heart. Reason number one he rocks this week, he doesn’t do anything half-ass (excuse the expression).
  2. Reason number two he watched the kids while I went out to dinner with some girlfriends this Thursday. He let me enjoy some time away. He understands that we both need time with our friends.
  3. Last night he went to help out my parents who are selling their house and need him to let someone in to pick up a couch. He did it because he didn’t want me in a potentially unsafe situation. Kevin is great with my family and has truly earned their love and respect by being a great in-law to my parents, cousins, aunts and grandparents.
