Lydia turns 4!










Lydia's birthday was yesterday. (the 21st)
It was funny because we kept asking her all of yesterday "how old are you?" and she would say 3. So we would say no, today's your birthday, so you're 4 now, and she said "I'm not 4 until I've had my cake!" So after she ate her cake she said.... NOW I'm 4! :o)

What we've been up to......


Anna and Sarah had fun playing with this big box....

Grilling chicken...



This peacock just showed up a couple weeks ago, and has stayed around!
He seems to like being around the chickens, and he has been sleeping right
outside our back door!

We have tried to make him feel welcome :)


We drained and re-painted our pool.....



A stray cat that stayed around for a couple days, before realizing
eating leftovers and canned tuna was not "the life".... ;)



We were invaded by paint covered indians......

they painted their nails.....

feet and faces.....

"Give us the rubber duckies and nobody will get hurt."
-------------------------------------------------------
We have been pretty busy this Summer, thus the lack of posting!
Here are some pictures of what we've been up too...... Enjoy!

Cake decorating





I recently took a Wilton cake decorating class. The pictures above are of the 1st and 3rd cake I made. It was alot of fun and I am planning to start the 2nd level next week.
I think it would be great if I could the cakes healthy and then use Organic food colorings for the frosting. As I make more cakes I'll *try* to remember to post some pictures on here! :o)
