Today is the big day! Faith is one. Where did the year go! We are so thankful for her. She brings so much joy to our family.  We love everything about her. This is going to be a fun day. Momma is making her cake. Being a mother is such a huge joy! Love her! I have so many emotions inside right now. My baby is now a toddler. But always my baby in my heart. I thank my Heavenly Father so much!
Isn't she a cutie!

Practice round

So Faith birthday is coming up. Who I usually order my cakes from is on vacation. I had many ,give me referrals, but I decided I would make her birthday cake. I found this cake and decided I would copy it.

I also loved this on too!
So I got a small pan and baked a 6 inch cake. I made this yummy filling and got my cake all prepped. I went and bought the tools I would need. I wasn't sure how to go about this. I colored my frosting and just started working. Well actually in between taking care of my child, cooking dinner, eating dinner, getting Faith a bath. And than later I got back to work. 

It's not what I wanted but a good attempt. My younger sister Andrea gave me so great tips to fix my mistakes.( make my own frosting, start rosettes in the center and work out) This is fun. I all of a sudden have an interest in cake decorating.

I started working on a project from a girls night in February that I hadn't finished. I have a really hard time finishing anything in general. I was determined I would finish this. I love to decorate and I love crafts(art kinds). I started painting these frames I got at micheals craft store(oh ya love 40% coupon and that I can pull it up on my phone and show to get the discount). I had ordered the 8x10 pics from Costco from before Christmas. I new I wanted to put them in Faith room. I primed, painted and than used modpodge over the frame to seal it. I love it! 

Now I still have to get the brackets on the back and than put it on the wall. Hopefully I have it done in the next couple of days. 
So I am finally almost done decorating Faith room. Crazy... Her birthday is next week!

On Saturday we went and saw Frozen. It was Faith first movie. I had the day off, which was really nice. It was a nice day spending time as a family. We first went to my niece basketball game(she is in middle school) and than later the movies. Faith did really well during the movie. She  just rotated between mommy and daddy.  I really liked the movie.
