Safe Arrival

i just love these brothers

I just love new babies... especially when I'm related to them. The little babes with their baby fuss, baby feet and hands, soft breathing, and frail cries. Nothing beats welcoming them into the world.

Our new nephew came into this world on the 11th. A big boy at over 10lbs, who was smart to come early. I just love that Addie has a new cousin her age. They will be buddies for sure!

I can't wait to meet him in a couple weeks!

Yesterday I finally got to try the famous cake pops from Bakerella. I was waiting for an excuse to make 40+ cake pops and Sammy's graduation was just the event!
Here are some things I learned...
-Make sure to chill the cake balls for a few hours... it will make things a lot easier!
-Only remove a handful at a time from the freezer when frosting.
-The frosting of the pops definitely takes some perfecting and was by far the trickiest part.
-I am kicking myself because I let some bossy lady at Vanilla Bean convince me that the edible ink pen (that Bakerella suggests using) doesn't work. Next time I think I'll try ordering a pen online. I've never had someone try so hard to talk me out of a purchase at their own store!
-And finally, make sure you need to bring all the cake pops to your party, or else you'll start talking yourself into having just one more =)
