14 years

Today marks the 14th anniversary of my fathers death. I can't believe it's been that long - I still remember in vivid detail the events that occurred on that day.

Julien, my mom and I went out to visit his grave this morning. It's such a peaceful and beautiful location - I really enjoy going out there.

Julien's birthday cake

I am quite pleased with how the cake turned out - here is a picture:

ETA: I ended up making the red icing, it just took a LOT of food color

latest cake

My cousin is hosting a bachelorette party for a friend of hers, and asked if I could make a cake for it. So, here is the final result.

It's a chocolate cake with Kahlua filling:

Happy birthday Julien!

I can't believe that 2 years have gone by already. It seems like just yesterday - they really do grow up in the blink of an eye.

Julien received 2 early birthday presents this week. A shape sorting clock from Betty Ann and David; and a geotrax set from Shawn and Jenn. Thank you all so much! He really enjoys his play time. I have a few pictures that are not uploaded yet, but I will post when they are.

Jules is having a short nap before the birthday celebration begins. Our families are coming by in about an hour for coffee and cake - and a rare occurence, Julien gets to see his Godfather!
