Julie and Corey's Wedding

Our friends Julie and Corey were married on Sept. 26. They had a beautiful outdoor wedding in Pueblo West, CO. I think I had more stress over this wedding than my own! Why, you ask? Because Lexi was the flower girl, Chris was the ring bearer and I made the cake! We were all over the place! Even though Joe didn't have a specific job, we couldn't have done it without him!
We had to drive an hour to the wedding in 2 cars. One car had the wedding cake and the other one had the kids! Thankfully, we made it there safe. Once we got there, we had to get the kids dressed and TRY to keep them clean. Chris wanted out of his tux as soon as we got it on him. Lexi, of course, loved her dress. She looked like a mini bride. While Joe was entertaining the kids, I was working on the cake. It was covered in fresh fruit. I finished right before the ceremony started.
The ceremony was on the deck right on the Arkansas River. Beautiful! After the ceremony we ate and danced...a lot! The cake was perfect and got a lot of compliments! Remind me how much work it was if I ever get asked to do a wedding cake again!

Aren't they adorable?

They could be sisters!

Too cute!

We fancied up her flip flops for the wedding.

Lexi turns 5!!!

My baby turned 5 on Sept. 14. I can't believe how fast time flies! We had a birthday party for her on Sept. 12. It was such a big deal, we had the theme picked out for a year! Lexi wanted a castle cake, so princess theme it was. I did a lot of research online for the cake and decorations. Even though the weather didn't cooperate, the party was awesome! I have a feeling Lexi will remember it when she is all grown up and that makes me feel good!

The princess herself! We gave her this dress right before the party and she was surprised!
The cake I made. It was great!

She got too many presents, but that is they way it happens!
I am sure she is already planning next years party!

We had quite a bit of snow today.  At least enough that the kids could play in it!  They had fun throwing snow balls at each other!  I stayed warm inside and took pictures and video.  I am posting a 2 minute video.  It is cute, but a little long.  Enjoy!
