What do I do when I get bored?

Practice new cake decorating skills!

Had one sick kid and one really tired one so they slept pretty much all morning. The computer was boring so was the tv and I didn't feel like talking.

Several days ago I watched a tutorial on making fondant roses and how to make the cake look like a basket.

This was my first attempt at both

At first I didn't think I was prepared to make a cake but I dug deep in the pantry and found a Spice cake mix and cream cheese frosting. I baked the smallest round cake I had, filled the layers with cream cheese frosting and then I whipped up a small bowl of buttercream frosting.

YUMMY! I can't wait for dessert!

One car family once again

This is like deja vu, a couple of years ago we had one car for almost 3 months. A the time, Cameron was a newborn and I had just found out I was pregnant with #4. It was a kick me while I'm down type of a moment and I am feeling that way again.

Friday I got all the kids in the van to pick up my oldest from school and when I turned the key it sounded like the engine was about to fall out so I didn't attempt to start it more than once. I called dh and explained to him what was going on and he had to drive all the way home from work just to go to the school which is a minute from our house. There was just no way I could take 2 9 month olds, a 2 yr old and a 4 yr old up the street.

Fast forward to day 4 of being stuck in and around the house and I already feel like I need to be committed! Our neighbor decided to not let her little girl play with my boys because they were fighting yesterday. The funny thing is she and I were both in the house and really didn't know who did what and with 4 yr olds they tend to lie about who done it stuff, lol!

When my boys were told she couldn't play with them today it was like pulling teeth to keep them out of her yard so I decided to just make them stay inside. I tried my hardest to keep them occupied but the second I didn't they were into everything and fighting. I think they are having no means of transportation withdraw too!

Hopefully my husband can get the van fixed and we will be on the road again soon but until then I just don't know how I will survive.
