My very thoughtful sister, Elyce...
I only took the first class (there's 4) and really enjoyed it. It was a lot of work and I plan to take the other 4 classes some day. This was my first cake.So I've gotten more creative how I do things and for last Easter, Mom asked if I would help her decorate sugar cookies. They turned out really cute (& they tasted great - mom). And so I tell you all this because probably most of my posts will be pictures of goodies & sweets (since there are no cute kiddos to take pictures of or talk about) and baking these treats is a new hobby of mine. Thanks Elyce for the awesome Gift & the extra Boost I needed to take the classes that I always wanted to and never would have signed up for myself.
Wow! Go Daddy Go!
A Huge bunch gathers every other Sunday at Mom & Dad's, and I usually am in charge of Dessert! My desserts have evolved a little since the cake decorating class.
Recently I made these Beauties... Meet the Chocolate Cupcake with Peanut Butter Icing. YuM!
These are usually made during the Holidays, but I had a craving for them in July, so I mixed it up a little bit. Jordan had never had them and he instantly fell in LOVE

Golden Gate Bridge...
Use caution and be careful on the windy & steep streets. Especially the most windy of them all,
Even though it could be very cold up at the front, it was the best view; so way worth the frozen appendedges. (Note the red nose.) BRRRR!!!
We drove across the Oakland Bay Bridge to visit the Oakland Temple. We had a very nice time and even got to see Wicked at the Orpheum Theatre downtown. It was such a fun experience. Jordan did a wonderful job at planning everything out; knowing where to go and how to get there.
I left my heart in San Francisco
High on a hill, it calls to me.
To be where little cable cars
Climb halfway to the stars!
The morning fog may chill the air
I don't care!
Here's to you our City By the Sea!!!
