I know you have probably all heard of the Cricut. It cuts out all sorts of images from paper. They are really neat and I think it would be great to have. Well, I got an email today introducing the Cricut Cake!

"This easy to use personal electronic cutter precisely cuts frosting sheets, gum paste and more! Cricut cake is so versatile, it's the perfect companion for every occasion in life, including holidays, birthdays, weddings and graduations!"

I believe it, don't you? Especially the part where it says "it's the perfect companion for every occasion in life." Okay, so the promo is super corny but I still want one. I just don't want to shell out the $400 it costs to get it.

Mother's (a sentimental post)

By the end of every Mother's Day I feel so very grateful for fathers! I have such a sweet husband that takes the time to make sure that I have a nice relaxing day off. He let me sleep in so that he and the kids could make Mother's Day cards for me. He got the kids ready for church, cleaned the house, made dinner, got the kids ready for bed and did it all with a smile on his face. I think Mother's Day is good for him too because he realizes just how much I have to do on a normal day. ;) Thanks for everything, Andrew! I love you!
I am truly grateful for all the mother's in my life and for the good example they are to me, and I would like to say thank you to my wonderful mother for being so great! She has always been my #1 cheerleader and has supported me through thick and thin.
Andrew emailed me this article this morning and I loved reading it. It made me realize how important the role of a mother is and how quickly time passes. We only have a few short years to be home with our children, we need to take advantage of each and every second!

I feel so very blessed that I have to opportunity to be a mother. I love my children with all my heart and think they are amazing! I am going to try this year to be a more patient, loving and kind mother. My children deserve it!
