Knock three times...

Hello!  And Happy Labor Day to you all :)
Not much going on around here, as usual.  I'm not complaining by any means... I've come to learn that hum-drum can be good....
I have some new videos of the girl, but my camera batteries died, so those will have to wait until I recharge them.  The song she sang in the last vid, she learned from 'Danger Rangers'... and she 'memorized' that last one after only watching it twice.
If you have On Demand, look under Kids, then Tot Spot and you'll find them there. 
The next vids are all about Safety Rules.  That seems to be where her interests lie these days  :)  Okay by me...  Hopefully, I'll get them posted soon.
She starts Pre-K tomorrow :)  Then Dance and Speech Class start Friday!  So, we'll be back to a routine... finally!  I love Fall  ;)
On another note, she turns 5 at the end of the month!  Wow.  My baby is already half a decade old.  I might cry.
Yes, folks, that's right.  Birthday and holiday season are upon me. 
For those who don't know, Grace's b-day is 9/29, followed by mine on 10/6, Mom's on 10/8, Aunt L's on 10/16, Dad's is 10/23, my bmf is on 10/30, then Halloween... and onto Mom and Dad's Anniversary (43 years! on 11/9), Thanksgiving, then Christmas.
I save 1/3 of my paychecks just for this time of year.  Believe me, its very busy... and expensive :)
Well, I'm off to discuss birthday cakes with the girl.  She's already asked me to make her a black and white cake... which I'm okay with, except we have different ideas on what that may be... LOL
See, I just made a chocolate bundt cake with choc. icing between the layers, and vanilla icing on the outside.  Usually for her birthday, I do a more elaborate type thing, using ganache instead of regular icing... I get pretty creative with them.  I was thinking of an inside-out cake this year... but we'll see.
Okay, now that I have most of you craving cake, my job here is done ;)
Hoping it won't take me another two weeks (or longer) to get back here!
Have a great day....

Time flies, when you are sitting around doing nothing, doesn't it?  LOL

I have three kids so that's three sets of school pics this month, Julie's birthday is Oct. 16th and then Halloween....this is when I appreciate having a mother who like to spend money!

Good luck to Gracie tomorrow!  Bet she'll be the smartest kid in the class!

Hmm, that cake sounds wonderful :)

And I don't blame you for saving your paychecks...

Sounds like an expensive time ;)

Glad to hear all is well.

Wow!  I can't believe Gracie is starting school already!!  I hope she has a great year!!  :)  And I love fall too!!  ;)

This is Josh's birthday month too...I had to remind him for the first day of school tomorrow not to invite the whole class for a birthday party...not to invite anyone until we decide how we are doing a party this year...LOL.  

Good luck on that first day of school!!
