Happy Anniversary to my sweet husband!

We fell in love 11 years ago, have enjoyed 5 years of wedded bliss, and we were blessed with 3 beautiful children, and my heart still skips a beat when you walk into a room. Wow, I'm a lucky women. I love you Jason Anthony, and I can't wait to see what the next 5 years will bring.


Party #2

Friday, the kids and I went to a birthday party for their friend Luke from Church.
It was held at Kidz Planet.
I made cupcakes and a cool "Mario" cake last minute. The cake came out pretty cool considering I wasn't planning on making it until that morning.

Mario cake I whipped up last minute.
