there were bubbles, wonder how they taste?...
a swimming pool...
a fishing trip....
thankfully, all of the furniture came from big brother, so bedding and decor items, clothing and bb necessities have been our largest expenses.
if i have the time, i am hoping to finish his monkey quilt. i haven't been able to do this as of yet because i simply cannot physically handle basting the quilt together! oh well, when i feel i can i will, he has several wonderful blankets and quilts to use in the meantime, including the one pictured on the rocking chair in the top picture gifted to him at a recent shower.
my c-section has been set up for sat., a week early, but little guy is measuring large and in charge just like his brother so induction is out. although, if i go on my own, who knows? so with a lot of help from family and friends, we are ready! until then, i can sit in this calming room and rock and picture my new little one....can't wait to meet him!
to make icing easier and reduce crumbs, i did a light crumb-layer of icing, then made a large batch of marshmallow fondant to cover all three layers.
i love marshmallow fondant for so many reasons. first, it is CHEAP! all three layers cost me one bag of powdered sugar and a bag of mini-marshmallows....compared to the $12 for a box of wilton fondant. also, it tastes a lot better. i can't tell you how many people will peel the other off a cake slice, but this stuff gets eaten.the other great thing about fondant is that you can color it and roll it out like play dough to decorate.
once at school, i put the layers together, added the stars around the base and on the sides of each layer, and titled the top.
all in all, a very successful and yummy piece of work. and best of all, when i make the cake i don't eat it...having spent the previous 2 days with my whole house smelling all cakeish.
i'll post pics from the ceremony later this week. it was quite precious.
oh, and i didn't cry, lol!
