Let them eat cake...

 this one of my favorite pictures of Blakey and Alani when they were much smaller....
one of my favorite things to do...well before the addition of lil' cupcake, which is funny that I call her "cupcake" in my blogs...but my favorite things to do, or was to do...was to bake!
Since "baking" my lil cupcake....I seem to have no spare time to do such lovely things like bake, or even put on make-up ha ha ha...
this was my "famous" (well famous in our house anyway)...chocolate cake, which Alani decorated with mini marshmallows in her very precious, then 3 year old self (she's now 6)...

When you have kids, and lots of them...much of your time is taken up with laundry...lots of laundry. Lots of dishes. Lots of cleaning. Lots of baths. Lots of picking up, cleaning up little messes. Lots of people going to the bathroom. Lots of hugs. Lots of love. Lots of filling their hearts up with love and making them feel special.

Life is short. It's an even shorter time that babies are babies and kids are little. Life is too short to loose your temper. Make moments special. Make everyone in your life know how much you love them. And if you have babies and kids...let them know you think they are the most amazing things in the world...

Laundry is waiting to be washed, waiting to be folded, waiting to be put in the dryer, to be put away...
there is a stray sock in my peripheral vision as I type this...
but the laundry I'm washing is the blankies that I wrap around my little ones so they feel "nice and cozy"...and "warmie" as Blakey says...
and the sock, as all baby socks do, is little cupcake's sock...
and I am so blessed to have little Blankies to wash and little socks, like pennies from heaven, that have fallen from chubby lil' feet to be sprinkled on the floor and know that this house is filled with love...
chocolate cake and my love flow from my computer to yours... your kandee
