So, here's the update, along with a few photos to document our crazy lives around here.
I have been busy baking more fun cakes!
First, I made Simon a Reese's peanut butter cake for his birthday. His request. He also requested not to be posted on the internet, so here is the cake, sans birthday man (I wouldn't call it an incredibly gorgeous success, but it tasted good):

Caleb turned THREE (about six weeks ago). I ended up making two birthday cakes. Yes, overboard, I know. But I had an awesome train planned for his birthday party, and then realized that he didn't have anything for his actual birthday...and ended up making him a dinosaur one on the fly. It turned out pretty cute, especially for a spur-of-the-moment thing: (it's a little messy, I know)

On to other, non-baking things. Simon and I went to Florida for a wedding in October, and had our first time away without kiddos in...a long time! The kids stayed with Mom and Dad. Here we are at the wedding
For Halloween, we had a cowboy and a little bear. Caleb was a bear his first Halloween, too:
That's all for now...more to come!
