Jonathan's new train

Jonathan got a really big Thomas train for Christmas from Grandma Lillian but we didn't open it until we came home from Texas. It however quickly became a joy for all the cousins to play with on New Year's Eve and he got into the routine of crawling thru it pretty quickly. Such a cutie!

The newest cousin

Well the children finally met. Carolyn was all over Madeline. We had talked about baby Madeline for such a long time that I think she was ready and willing to start playing with her. She had her moments of holding her and giving her lots of kisses (despite the runny nose and my fear of spreading potential colds to such a young baby). Jonathan was less than impressed with this new cousin for now, but I'm sure that will change with time. He kept wanting to wack her head especially when mommy was holding her. Good thing we're stopping at two children since I think he'd be the one with jealous issues. Well it was a good time in Texas and looking forward to heading back down there again this summer potentially.

So here is the latest cake creation for my cousin's wedding this past Saturday. It fed 330 people. The cake flavor was butter rum and the icing alternated from Chocolate with reese Pieces filling and the remaining layers were strawberry iced. It was pretty darn yummy! I would say applying the cake sprinkles were just about the most annoying thing ever.
