This past week we celebrated Barrett turning ONE! Brooks has been watching the days go by on our November calendar all month waiting for Barrett's birthday to come. Both Brooks and Keely were so excited for the party. I had talked about what kind of cake to make for Barrett with the other kids a couple of months ago, and we had decided on a dog cake since Barrett seems to love dogs. After looking on pinterest for ideas, we settled on one in particular. It was definitely going to be the most elaborate cake I had attempted, but the kids were so excited for it, and it was too cute in the picture not to give it a try. Brooks and Keely wanted a Dalmatian dog after one of their favorite characters, Marshall, on Paw Patrol. So Friday I spent most of the day baking 2 cakes, one chocolate, one white, making 2 frostings and 2 batches of marshmallow fondant. It was a lot to tackle, but I loved the end result. And it was fun! I think Barrett liked it too!

Yikes, it's been since July. I know it's just an excuse, but we have been busy around here and blogging has not been on the top of my list. So sorry to all of you who still follow me on here! A lot of changes have happened around here for us. Barrett is now officially walking, and is pretty good at it! He is also eating a few finger foods like peas, crackers, bits of bread, macaroni and cheese, and yesterday tried fruit loops for the first time. He LOVED those :)
