Happy 4th birthday to my twins!!

Whoa!!!  It's been a while since I last posted something, huh?  Sorry for my absence...but this year my first priority is my family {which has always been the case anyway}, but also my health and well-being :-)  Sure, there will be those odd occasions where I have to pull an all-nighter, but I REALLY want to change that habit and make sure that I look after myself more.  Last year I pretty much beat myself up with countless sleepless nights working on cakes, as well as writing and editing my posts, to the point of exhaustion, and yes, even ending up in hospital :-(  Terrible, I know!  I'm just glad that change is taking place in my life and I thank the Lord for everything!!

Now, enough about that!  Let's now talk about my boys Javier Stanley and Carlyle Micah!  My miracle babies turned FOUR on the 12th of February, and we had the pleasure of celebrating their {last minute} birthday at my sister's new place.  It was really like a pre-house-warming/birthday combined into one celebration!  I was a little under the weather that week leading up to their birthday, so could only {barely} whip up cupcakes.  Was also busy helping my sister move, so really had no time to put a cake together.  I felt bad about that, but I also thought to myself, my boys LOVE cupcakes, so I should be happy that I still managed to whip some for their special day :-)

Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure...please note that the ones of us are a bit blurry, but still, enjoy xo

January 2013 in a glimpse...

First month of January over already?  Holy smokes!!  That was quick!!  I hope you've been enjoying your summer {that is if you're in the southern hemisphere}.  We've been really blessed with gorgeous sunny days that when we get the occasional rain we actually appreciate it!  Let's soak up as much warmth as we can while summer is here, because we won't have her forever.

Now, I know we're well into the month of Feb, but I hope you forgive me for being a bit slack lately here in blogdom.  School started just over a week ago, and it's been a very full-on week for my family.  We are trying to get back into the swing of things around here, y'know, back to that routine after a lovely long break!  So far, so good...{touch wood} :-P

Anyway, let us take a quick look at January 2013 to remind us of what fun we got up to...

Transformers' Optimus Prime/Bumblebee birthday cake for Tyler!!

Mocha 'hearts' cake for me Dad's birthday xo

Pocoyo birthday cake for Alexis :-)
