Isn't it a beauty!

But no...I didn't make it.  However, that is a goal of mine.  I want to go take a couple of cake decorating classes and start doing it for fun.  Mark has gotten me a few things that I will need to get started, so here we go:)  Wish me luck!

So I posted more of our pictures on facebook but here are a few more.  We had our friend take our photos and she did a wonderful job!  Check out her website at

I swear I make this recipe at least once every two weeks because Mark and I love to eat breakfast for dinner.  When I looked to find a belgian waffle recipe all of them wanted me to peak egg whites(which I hate doing) except this one.  It turns out I liked this recipe better than most of the other anyway.  Our favorite things to eat with it are nutella or whip cream and strawberries but obviously you can "have whatever you like"!!

Belgian Waffles
 2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 cups milk
6 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 large eggs
  1. Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and combine until well blended.
  2. Allow batter to rest 5 minutes before using.
  3. Use in your Belgian Waffle Maker according to manufacturer's suggestion.

Congratulations Binky!

 Part of my family after Alina's shower was over
 My awesome husband who decided to block for Taylor so that she would have a sure win at the bouquet...sure enough it worked:)

Jaxon did pretty well all things considered, but thanks to my sweet brother and sister-in-law, Jaxon was able to skip out early on the festivities to sleep in his crib once he was DONE.
And there she is folks...Taken.  She got married in the San Antonio Temple.  Many of us were able to be there for the ceremony and it was beautiful.  Of course I bawled like a baby because my Baby sister was getting married.  I know I got married when I was just a few months older than her, but somehow it just seems different when the baby of the family gets married I guess. 
We were able to have a lovely reception afterwards at the J.  Of course I am a dummy and didn't take hardly any pictures but our good family friend Ginny was able to catch many beautiful moments with her photography. 
Love you Binky and I wish you guys all of the happiness in the world!


I love these girls.  I can honestly say in a way they saved my life.  We have been there for each other through the good and the bad and always will.
Love you guys!


We finally decided it was time to cut Jaxon's hair.  He pretty much didn't have any until about 2 months ago, but it was getting so the top was short and the back was long.  It had to go.  So like the good parents that we are, we bribed him with chocolate in his high chair while we did it.  It worked like a charm!
