Frightmares and Pumpkins!

This last weekend was awesome! John and I got to go to Frightmares at Lagoon with our friends Jenny and Derek! Jenny's mom was really excited to watch Jack the whole day and so were we:)

I drew a Jack of Hearts template to carve in celebration of our Jack's first Halloween!!

Our little Jack got his three month pictures last week! We were really pleased with how they turned out, so pleased that we paid 20 times more than we walked in expecting to pay. It was totally worth it and it was SO fun!

Winco is the grocery store we would ALWAYS go to in Boise! Everyone knew it was the cheapest, so I decided to do a little sample comparison of prices between the two on food.
Check it out...

I only buy food items when I go to Winco because for non-food essentials, Walmart is the same or cheaper (because they believe in slave labor, child labor, etc. )

Anyways, Winco is AWESOME! If anything, you should at least go and check it out. I'm sure you'll be happy with what you find. They have bulk items too, and lots of em'! So you can get cereal, candy, spices, dog food...anything in bulk pretty much! That's my favorite part!

Sweet Sixteen

I really liked how this cake turned out. I was going for sort of abstractness with the shape of the cake so it's got this fun lopsided look to it! This cake was for my sister's sixteenth birthday, yea Shelly!

Yeah, I'm Kinda Proud

I think this is one of my favorite cakes that I've done! My mom loves flowers so this was for her birthday. I did another one of a half of a basketball with Vanessa, but it ended up looking deflated because I had to peel the first layer of fondant off due to a massive crack.

Good job keeping your eyes open in this one, mom! :)

Tummy Time to the Max!

So Jack is usually a happy baby. He loves to sit and watch what's going on, and eat, and he used to love tummy time when he was first born.

Then a few weeks later he decided he hated it and he would just lay there and scream with his face in the ground. But NOW, he loves it thanks to the Boppy pillow **(registered trademark)!


Sometimes he falls over...
Then I lift him back up...

and he still loves it! What a good boy!

**Special thanks to Vanessa for the Boppy:)

My Chunky Monkey

Jack had his two month check up yesterday and everything went really well! Jack weighed in at 13.5 pounds which puts him in the 90th chunker:) He measured at 24 inches so he's grown five inches in two months! His head circumference is still in the 40th percentile which it was at birth so his head isn't as massive as I've thought:) He took the shots as well as a baby could...he screamed for about 30 seconds and then he calmed right down and fell asleep. He has been grumpy which is to be expected, I feel bad for the little guy:( But at least he's super duper healthy, I'm grateful for that.
