GiGi and Sadie, great pics. GiGi, Logan is getting so grown-up and handsome! And Sadie, it seems you and your kids have such a great relationship -- it always shows in the pics. Just a lotta love. :)
The Sully cake was actually the easier of the two. I should've used fondant for the Mike cake, but I've been too intimidated to try it so far. Next year! But Mike was hard to get fairly smooth, and the eye was tricky. He didn't look as good overall. Decorating Sully took me about 2.5 hours, Mike about 3. Add in the baking and clean-up time, and all together I think I spent about 8 hours on those cakes!

I would highly recommend taking some time to go and do something like this... it was a delight, and just what I needed to lift my spirits. I am dying to take the kids back there when the ducklings start arriving in the spring.
Oh, you must share duckling photos when that happens! They are so darn cute! A local farm store back in IL used to sell ducklings in the spring, and I always took the kids out to see them. Definitely a highlight of the year. Especially when you get a nice employee who would pick up the ducklings and let the kids pet them. :)
So many awesome shots! I am "in a slump" and haven't done much with my "real" camera lately. I cannot WAIT for spring/summer.

For valentines day dh got me a speedlite:) I was playing with it taking a few shots of our room makeover. Just now getting the hang of it so just 2 snaps 4 now.
We painted the walls a light grey and bought a new bed and a few new pillows. Now I can redo the shot of Damien without the headboard going thru his head:)
