Though I am a little bit late, Mason is now three!   We didn't have a party of anything but he still felt very special.  Last year Mason requested a dinosaur cake and he loved it so much that this year he wanted the exact same thing.  But I finally found a design online that was very slightly different than is old cake and when I showed Mason the picture and pointed out all the chocolate on it he decided he wanted a"spiky dinosaur with big chocolate chips cake".  And he loved it!  Well he didn't actually love the cake, he mostly just ate all the frosting and chocolate off it, but he still loved the idea of his own cake that he picked out.  And I loved it too; in fact, I think it was by far my best cake yet (it helped that it was the simplest birthday cake I have made :)).  

(sadly Jeff didn't take a picture of all the Hersey kiss spikes on the dinosaur's back) 

It has been a long time since we posted, and to be honest I don't know who still reads our blog.  Some exciting things that have happened were my brothers wedding in Utah (which was amazing), Christmas, lots of blizzards, Jeffrey's promotion (he is now an outside salesman), and my golden birthday.  So overall life is great!  Jeffrey likes his new responsibilities as an outside salesman, but it does mean he is working more hours, especially for the next few months.   The snow and cold weather here has been crazy but I think we are beginning to adjust to the cold weather of Wisconsin.  And my golden birthday was great, though I don't like being 27, I feel like I can no longer call myself young!

We had tons of now so we decided to bury Molly!

Then they kids thought it was so funny so we buried all of them!
