September flew by! I can't believe it is already October, I feel like we were just planning our summer vacation! We had a great start to fall with lots of celebrations. Almost every weekend we had something going on, it was fun spending so much time with our family and friends.
The first of the month we celebrated my bro-in-laws 40th birthday. I was really excited when my sister asked me to make him a cake, since he is a big Nebraska fan we thought this would be perfect! I love how it came out! I made a stencil for the letters and used them to cut the fondant. I LOVE making cakes! Some take time and patience (like this one) but to me it's worth it in the end.
The next weekend we headed to Dallas for my best friends bachelorette party. We had such a great time with each other, and showing the bride to be some love! My friend Alli made the adorable cookies, perfect for a bachelorette party ;) I don't get dressed up too much anymore so it was fun to go all out! We laughed a lot and made some great memories!
This was a big month for my little man too, he started school! I was happy for him to have the experience, but sad because he is growing up so fast! Here he is saying "first day of schooool!" I was really anxious all day, wondering what he was doing, if he would be okay during nap time, or if he would like being there all day, etc. But he loved it, and is excited to go! I know it will be great for him to be with other kids and have a structured class. The first day he got in trouble for running away from his teachers. lol, no surprise there, since it's his favorite thing to do. ;) He has gotten the hang of it now and knows to stay with the class. He is just growing too fast though!!
September means Fair Time here in Oklahoma! It is always fun to see the people and eat the food. I hadn't ever gotten any of the funny fried foods they sell before, so I thought I would try one this year. I got a fried Snickers and it was deelish! So good. Like a funnel cake with melty snickers inside and covered in powdered sugar. Carter got to ride a pony too. We went into a butterfly exhibit with tons of them flying around, Carter is trying to see the one that landed on his back in the picture below. :) The weather was beautiful and we had a great time going with mine and Jamie's family!
While my sister was in town we celebrated her 40th birthday as well, and again I made her a cake :) I had talked about how I was going to try an ombre cake here, and this is how it came out. Pretty cute! It was a mini cake and very easy. If you try to do an ombre cake go with lightest to darkest, I started with the darkest first and had to buy more icing to lighten it up! And, I hope I look as good as my sister does when Im 40! :)
We also celebrated my birthday last week! Busy month!! It was a great one though! Just some more pictures...
