Lexi has always wanted to do cheerleading and finally we have signed her up. She started last week and she loves it. A friend of mine signed her daughter up and they have a blast tumbling together. My baby girl makes such a cute cheerleader (and I bet she will be darn good at it too).

Adventures in Baking

It's been a busy week getting ready for Jacob & Kadie's birthday party tomorrow. I've been shopping for cake stuff and goody bag stuff and I think FINALLY I am ready for tomorrow's party. It's very likely I'm forgetting something important but Ill remember that tomorrow like 11 minutes into the party LoL

I've always wanted to make my kids' cakes but I'm not that talented so I would have my mother in law make them. She is awesome when it comes to decorating. My hand just isn't that steady and my frosting is always melty (could have something to do with this Georgia weather, who knows).

I had the bright idea of making a cake centered around our party's theme. Well, not really a theme exactly, but the place we are having it. It's a place called The Little Jumping Bean. They have all kinds of inflatables and the kids just love it there. So I googled "bounce house cake" and low and behold I came across one with a recipe and one just a picture. I followed the recipe to an extent but made it more like the picture I found. It didn't turn out too shabby.

Save Them From Debt!

Sorry I didn't post a movie review for yesterday but the only movie Ive watched recently is Free Willy. I love that movie! I just recently bought the trilogy for myself... er... the kids, yah, it's for the kids.

Anyways, there is a website you can go to to set up a way to raise funds for any cause. It is www.chipin.com Anyone can register with them and start earning money for whatever they need it for. I, for one, would love to sign Lexi up for the Cheer Savannah All Stars but don't have an extra $200 laying around every month. I'm thinking about starting a blog, like this one... http://makemedebtfree.blogspot.com/

If 50,000 people just donated 1 crummy dollar, this family could be debt free. How nice would that be? I even contributed enough for 5 people... so just 49,995 more to go. Come on people, show some all American love!

Jacob & Adam's Pictures

I took the boys to get pictures done at Sears yesterday. I was very pleased with how they turned out (as my checkbook will tell you). She took a TON of pics and I ordered way more than I will probably need (nothing new there).

So here they are for your viewing pleasure...
