So some of you have been wanting to see pictures of Ryan’s birthday cake this year…Let me just say, I think it’s an improvement from last year.   Just an idea of how far my talent (or lack of) has come, here is Ryan’s cake from last year:


…Yes that is supposed to be a Thomas the Tank Engine cake.  He loved it and that was worth the embarassment suffered from the teasings of my family-you know who you are! 🙂

This year Ryan had a fireman themed birthday.  I thought I’d show the progress of the cake in pictures.  I must say, that the only reason this looked even remotely like a fire engine is because there was a video online to watch.  Oh thank goodness for the Internet. 

Here’s the set up:


 Here’s the finished the product:

Here’s some more pictures from Ryan’s 4th birthday party.  Stay tuned…I will be attempting another Thomas cake in December for AJ’s 3rd birthday.  It will be a repeat theme, but the kid just loves Thomas!

Saying Goodbye and Hello

The Girls

We officially have a move to Colorado date:  June 17th.  This is such a bittersweet time for me.  I’m saying farewell to my dear family and sweet friends, a neighborhood I love, and the house we became a family in.   And hello to a brand new world full of new opportunities.  And not only that, my husband is about to start his new job at Northern Hills Christian Church-a dream that is finally being fulfilled.

So that’s how I started and had to walk away…Why is change so hard?  Why is it so scary?  When I know that God has His best for us.  It seems too, that the older I get, the more fears that start to creep in.  Maybe it’s because I’m now a mom… I don’t know.  I thank God for a husband that is so strong in trusting God’s plan for us.  I know this all in my head and in my heart.  The parts that I continue to struggle with is the trusting and and letting go parts. 

Alright, needing to walk away again.  So goodbye Texas, it’s been an amazing five years-I’ll miss you.  And hello Colorado, it’s good to see you again.  I can’t wait for the new opportunities and adventures that you have in store for this Green Family.

*The pic is two of my favorite people: Misty and Colby.  They took me out for one last “Girl’s Night”.  We painted mugs for each other.  Friendship is such a blessing!
