Loving the heat!

Posted by Mandy at 8:29 PM
I just LOVE summer time! The kids and I played out in the pool this afternoon and I just loved it! I look forward to playing in the water every single summer. And now that God has blessed us with a house that has great a/c... I can actually love summer again. The first 4 years we were married we lived in a little trailor that had a teeny tiny window unit that was supposed to cool the entire place... oh my, it was miserable. I am SO greatful for the fact that Madison will now come to me and ask me to turn the air off because she is too cold. :) I always wonder, "How can it be too cold?" Everyone that knows me knows that "I'm so hot!" is a constant phrase coming out of my mouth. But, this summer will be so much nicer! I'm really really looking forward to it!

Does anyone know how to make a unicorn cake? Yes, Madison's birthday is next month and she is requesting a unicorn party. I can get the plates and such with unicorns but how on earth am I supposed to turn up a cake? If nothing else I'll send the party napkin to a big grocery store and they can put that picture on the cake! My baby girl is really turning 5. Oh no, wait, I think my heart stopped beating for a few seconds after I typed that! I'm sure no matter how old your "babies" get, each year you look at them and wonder how in the world the time went by so quickly.

Can I say that I'm having one of those "I love being a mommy" days? I mean, not that I don't typically enjoy it, but you know when you just have an exceptionally nice day with the kids? Maybe that's because I got to go to Walmart with Suzanne with ZERO kids and have some girl time earlier in the day. It's always refreshing to get out for a while kid free. Maybe it's because I was trying, again, to play Simon Says with Madison and I could not stop laughing at how she just cannot get the rules of if you don't say "Simon says..." that you don't do what's told. She kept giggling after I'd say, "oh, I didn't say Simon says!" and smacking her forehead and saying, "I keep forgetting the rules! Those are tricky!" Oh to be 5 again!

I love the summer! Yeah heat and tball and hot dogs and cookouts and sweat...okay, maybe not sweat... I identify with you about the summer heat. I like it because I'm the opposite of you, I'm always COLD. Now I can just step outside our house for about two seconds and warm up.

Try the lady officer at Monticello PD. She makes cakes and may can help you with a unicorn cake. If you don't know her call me and I will give you her name. Clayton should know who she is.

I have a cake pan that is a horse, it's not a plain horse. It is actually for a baby shower, but if we could think of a way to add a horn you are more than welcome to use it. I also have wilton cake decorating books since 1984, you can look at for some ideas. Along with all of the things you need, icing color, pans, knives, bags, etc. Just let me know.

Thanks everyone! Madison told me yesterday that she doesn't want a cake.. she wants the 'rainbow cupcakes' they bake that Piggly Wiggly! Fine by me! :)
