Born on the 4th of July… Or Not. Just go with it…

Not really, but this family was all decked out in Red, White and Blue on the 3rd and I haven’t had enough coffee to come up with a witty blog title.

Seriously, how adorable and two kids be?!?!

Answer: VERY

I won’t spend too long rambling in this post. I’m headed out the door in a few minutes. It’s sister day at the family farm and one of my favorite days of the year. Little sis and I head west and spend some time out on the farm. And I always come home with fresh eggs, which means I bake for several days after. Yay!

Check out the W family!

And let us not forget the video!

Family first…

I’ve been on my feet since five this morning.

I’m not complaining one bit. In four hours my house will be bursting at the seams, full of people I love.


This is the first time in quite a while that my mom’s side of the family has been in one place at the same time. They are spread out from coast to coast and I’m lucky enough to host this shindig.

I’m most excited about all of the pictures I’ll be taking today. And the food. There’s bacon.

On the menu: Texas brisket, backed beans, potato salad, salad, corn, fresh baked bread. Sound good, right? That doesn’t include the dessert menu (the reason I’ve been up for so long) layered chocolate cake, chocolate chip cookies, apple pie, cherry pie and gooey butter cake. I’ve made everything except the gooey butter cake.

Also, I’m not decorating the layer cake like I usually would. Going with simple buttercream and some sprinkles. Less time in the kitchen = more time talking and laughing with everyone.

I’m excited to spend the day with these people that I love so much. It should be a fantastic time and I really can’t wait to do a family photo.

You know there will be photos and video galore to be seen here in the next few days, so check back!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Big Brothers…

I think about alllll the trouble I’ve managed to get myself into over the years, and I have to wonder if I could have avoided most of it by having big brothers…

Sweet Miss Vada has FOUR awesome older brothers to keep her out of trouble! It was a blast to play with this crew today and I can’t wait until the next time! These guys are so much fun!

Have some pics to drool over, and yes, the video is at the end of this post!

Have an exciting 4th of July! I’ll post some firework photos if I decide to venture out.

Don’t mess with this girl… It’s clear her brothers adore her!



And now for the video…. Don’t worry, I’ve started adding the music details at the end of the video. I always get emails asking what the song is! lol
