My Eleven Year Old Blog!

Eleven years ago today I posted my first blog post on this little ol’ spot of mine on the world wide web.  I’ve mentioned before that I didn’t know what I was doing and was only doing it so family and friends could see from me what was going on with our family.  We lived in Kansas far away all of our families and most of our friends.  I also just wanted to use this space as my way of journaling about our lives.  Here we are eleven years later!  So many changes, as expected!  I’m still here.  Sadly, not like I used to be and not like I wish.  Sometimes circumstances in our lives take precedence over what we’d really like to have happen.  I’ve learned things aren’t always as we’d like, but I am so very blessed with everything in my life, so I shall not complain.

I’m busy and tired and continue keeping on even though sometimes I would really just like to take a big ol’ break from everyday life and not have a care in the world.  Four boys will do that to you, I suppose!  A quick run down—my oldest, Scott, is getting married this week!  What?!  I know, so crazy.  He was still just nine when I started Baking and Boys!  We are excited to have Diana join our family and I’ll have a daughter!  Parker is 17 and trying to get done with high school a year early so he can graduate this May.  Fingers crossed!  Taylor is 15.  He’s in 9th grade and in his third year of percussion and is loving playing drums.  It’s loud here at our house!  Besides drums, he has taught himself how to play the ukulele and some electric guitar (so has Parker).  Sam is in 6th grade and will be 12 years old soon!  Ahhh!  So you can see, all four of my babies are growing up and things are always hoppin’ around here!

I can’t seem to bake like I used to and never get all the things I’d like to done that I dream about or even just plan to do, but life is good!  My health is good!  My husband is amazing, as always.  We are so blessed!  When I realized today is my eleven year blogaversary, I didn’t want to just let it go by, even though my blog has sat pretty dormant especially this last year.  I didn’t make anything, but Taylor had two friends over today and they wanted to make a cake and they wanted to cover it with homemade fondant.  I didn’t really want to have anything to do with it and didn’t want to deal with the mess.  They’d never made fondant, but they were determined.  Above is the cake they made with about 1% help from me.  I must say it turned out better than I thought it would.  They said it was a Legos head, even though that was not their intention when they started.  I’m tired and I didn’t really do much at all.  But it made for me to have something to post here, so here’s your cake.  I still hope to actually post things when I make something really  great that I just have to share!  We’re in full blown wedding mode here this week!
