Happy Birthday to my boys

Have you ever noticed that when something goes wrong in your life, it is usually at the worst possible time? I dislocated my kneecap and tore a ligament in my knee 3 weeks ago. After 2 weeks on crutches, (and incidently, have you ever tried to bake and decorate cookies or cakes on crutches? Trust me, you don't want to.) my doctor decided after the MRI that I probably would not need surgery. YAY!! I apparently did not hear the last part of that statement, "at this time".
During the 3rd week, when I could finally put weight on it without wanting to die, I had 3 of my 4 boys birthdays, the same 3 kids with baseball games and practices every day, plus cookie orders for 2 weddings and a birthday, a total of 320 cookies. Oh yes, and the church bake sale. So I spent most of the last week standing. On a leg that I was not yet supposed to be standing on. So I am now back to having a knee 3 times its normal size, and bruised from mid- thigh to mid-calf. I have a horribly sinking feeling I may have just pushed myself into needing that surgery. Oh, AND, my camera died! Yippee!
Long story short, I have had a seriously crappy few weeks. Ok, enough of my venting.
What do you do when 3 kids having 1 cake want SpongeBob, Clone Wars and Star Wars on it? They all like to fish, so I ended up having SpongeBob, Han Solo and a Clone Trooper fishing together. It was pretty pitiful. Thankfully, the boys are more concerned with presents than cake, so it worked. The figures are toys - I had every intention on making them out of gumpaste, but that didn't work out.

I've got many cookies to post, so check back soon!

My boys - part 2

I can't leave out my baby. Christian is a little doll. I very rarely have any trouble with him. He is very often better behaved than his big brothers. Hopefully that will last through the terrible twos!

My boys

My kids saw my blog the other day, and I got an earful because their brother's picture (2, in fact) is on here and theirs are not. So, since their birthdays are coming up this week and I am still on crutches and unable to bake, I thought I would introduce my boys.

Chase will be 11 in about 2 weeks. He will be in 6th grade. He loves baseball, swimming & weather. Yes, weather. Only kid I know that likes to get online so he can check out the weather. Not to see if it's going to rain, mind you. That would make sense. He's just fascinated by weather. He did a science report on tornados this year. I've never seen him work so hard on something for school. Maybe he'll be a metorologist.


The twins will be 6 years old on Tuesday. I can't believe it. It's amazing how fast the time has gone by. It seem like they were just sharing a blanket in that teeny little bassinet, and here they are going into 1st grade. They have been a joy in our lives, and there has never been a dull moment.

Noah is a sweet boy, but definitely the ornery one. He loves music, loves singing and playing the piano. He is a flirt and a comedian. He can be infuriating, but at the same time he's impossible to get mad at. He spent several weeks in the NICU when he was born. He is our little miracle.


Jacob is very smart. He spent most of Kindergarten in 1st grade classes, and this year will be in the gifted program. He taught himself to read before his 4th birthday, and was reading at 5th grade level when he started Kindergarten. He is always the one to take control, and loves to remind Noah that he's the oldest (by 1 minute).
