My mom got this amazing cook book for mother's day and there was a recipe in it for some chocolate mousse butter cream frosting. I knew I had to make it when I read that it had 6 sticks of butter in it. Yes, you heard me right...SIX sticks of butter. The recipe was a little time consuming but worth every one of the 5400 calories...yes, I did the math on that. Sorry mom, I probably shouldn't have added that little tidbit seeing as how I left the remainder of the cake at your house! the taste was rich but not overwhelming and seemed to melt in your mouth. Start your mouthwatering ladies...

Jack is mezmerized by bubbles so any chance we get we are out on the lawn popping away. It has been pretty cold and rainy this week but jack has to get out for his (and my) sanity. This bubble blowing escapade took place after a rainstorm...notice the soaking jeans and red cheeks...nothing can stop little Jack!

He's looking at like "come on, keep up will ya!"
This is what happens when a 20 month old is getting sick of the 4 hour car ride...desperate times call for desperate measures, hence the laffy taffy. It did buy us the last 40 minutes of the car ride though!

In response to your comments which appeared on our blog.
She doesn’t like to swim and she hates to camp.
Just give her some pictures or something to stamp.
She loves to give service, she’s there in a flash.
Her determination is writing checks that her back can’t cash.
Yea that’s right, her back tends to hurt.
But she won’t be complaining while making dessert.
Always a giver, never a taker.
She’s the Michael Jordan to all homemakers.
Cindy’s known as Nana to all her grandkids.
Giving them books when winning her bids.
Cindy is perfect, she has no flaw.
O.K. now I’m just brown-nosing my mother-in-law.

"A Great Mother"
Jill, you are a great mother, even right from the start.
The moment you saw Jackson as he melted your heart.
To be a great mother, there's no secret potion.
Just TLC, and maybe some eczema lotion.
There is never time for some good ol' relaxin'.
Especially when chasing around a hyper-active little Jackson.
From straightening the house, to wiping a butt.
Or staying up late to feed your little peanut.
You read to the kids, and endure through "Mouse".
We'll always appreciate you, your kids, and your spouse.
