James' Farm Cake

Wow! Can hardly believe it's been so long since I posted something on here!
I finished the birthday cake for my son's 4th birthday party today. It's not his birthday til tomorrow, but I just wanted it to be done. He wanted a farm cake with "a barn and with cows and with sheep and with pigs", and this was the only way I could think of to do that for him. I didn't take pictures as I was making it, but here's the finished product. Oh, and since I HATE red food dye, I used strawberry jam to make the pink. Enjoy!
These are the cows... (mommy ones and baby ones, I've been informed)

These are the pigs... (again, mommy and baby ones)

And these are the sheep... (you guessed it)

And this is the 'almost' finished product. I just need to add a little fence (pretzel sticks), and we should be good !

I hope he likes it!

A Picture a Day for 7 Days... Day 3.

I love these pictures. They were both taken a few days ago. This is my little boy, Tyler. I just love the character in his little face! We go for lots of walks by the river here, and both my boys just love being outside. Tomorrow's pics will be of my bigger boy... I'm not playing favorites, I promise!

Thanks again for checking out my pictures!

A Picture a Day for 7 Days... Day 2.

One of the things I love most about living in British Columbia, is our GORGEOUS mountains. This one is Mount Cheam. We get to see this beauty every day!

Thank you for popping in to take a look! Be sure to check out the other blogs participating in this photo 'challenge'.

A Picture a Day for 7 Days... Day 1.

I got this idea from one of the blogs I follow (Cozy Cottage Cute), and thought it would be easy enough to do myself. I'm kind of in the middle of lots of little crafty things right now, but nothing finished to post.

So, here goes! My first photo, of 7. This was taken yesterday while we were walking by the river. The blue herons are nesting, and I just thought it looked so cool!
Yes, those are all heron nests. Another month and all the baby herons will be hatching, then they'll be gone until next year.
