I can't believe that it has been 10 days since my last blog. I guess that makes it very clear of how busy I have been. Between our new business, the boys, and just life in general, I have been swamped. We are all doing well. Tommy is staying busy and that is a blessing. The boys are good. Eli is staying busy with homeschool and soccer. Bleeze is just Bleeze. He has turned into the funniest kid around. He keeps us laughing. He had a little bit of a cold last week, but THANK GOD. He is better now. We have been praying off all the sickness that has been going around.
Speaking of the business. God has really blessed us and it has taken off! We did decide to change the name however. Our main focus when we started the business was the event planning, however, God had a different plan. The cake business has really taken off and we are thrilled. Brandi and I both love doing the cakes and it has become our main focus. Therefore Chic Affair is now known as Sophisticakes AND MORE! We still are doing events with style as well as the cakes. So call us for your next event! We are really excited about our new name and the future. I think God is up to something big! I am just happy that he has chosen Brandi and myself to be instruments that he can use!
Just a few funnies to share....
Bleeze has such an imagination. He says so many funny things I could write a book off of them. I thought I would share a few things from the past few days.
* Yesterday, we were in Walmart. He said he wanted us to pretend that we were "SUPER HERO SECRET AGENTS" Okay, whatever. Sounds cool to me. So he said, "I am little brother boy, Eli is big brother boy, and Mommy, you are BIG MAMA GIRL" OH my gosh...BIG MAMA! I thought I would laugh my head off. A lady standing near by overheard him and she was laughing hysterically. She looks at me and says, "YOU GO BIG MAMA." Holy COW! So we are going through Walmart where Bleeze proceeds to shoot bombs out of his hands and freeze people. He also was flying. It was so funny. I lost my breath laughing at him. Eli is getting so big, and he looks at me and says, "does he know how ridiculous he looks" So then, I get tickled at Eli. It was a very fun trip to Walmart for a change.
* So then this morning, he says he wants to call Tommy to tell him he loves him. So I dial Tommy's number and his voicemail comes on. Bleeze looks at me and says, "OH my gosh, it is his voice mail, I have been dying to leave him a voice mail. How do you do it?" I talked him through it. It was so funny!
* Yesterday I suffered the loss of one of my best friends. My Hamilton Beech Coffee Brewer. For those of you who know me, you know how much I loved that thing. I purchased a normal, cheap coffee pot yesterday at Walmart until I can find a replacement for my precious Coffee Brew Station. LOL! So this morning I turned on the normal coffee pot and Bleeze stood there in amazement. I wondered why I spent money on Disney World and the circus. He was hilarious! He thought the coffee going into the pot was the coolest thing ever. I guess he has never seen such. LOL!!! He turns and looks at me and says, "THAT COFFEE POT IS AMAZING!!!!!"
* Bleeze is also into spelling right now. He can't spell but he is so trying.He will just spit out a bunch of letters and say, "What does that spell?" It is so funny. So yesterday at Walmart (walmart was an eventful place yesterday) He got a box of Tic Tac's. He tries to spell it so I told him how to spell it the correct way. He would say.."T-I-C-T-I-C-T-A-tica-tica-tica". The cashier was laughing her head off. So she looks at him and says "You will learn to spell one day sweet girl" OMG!!!!! He looks up at her and puts his eyebrows down and says, "I can spell, and I am not a girl" I thought I would die! She said, "OH, I AM SORRY" He said, "Oh, it's okay" At least he told her that. I mean really, how many girls do you know that wear jeans, plaid shirts, and black and red cars light up tennis shoes. His clothes totally looked like a boy! It never ceases to amaze me how many people call him a girl. I don't care though. I am not cutting the hair!
Okay, so that is my funnies for Bleeze. I do have one for Eli though. He has become a comedian lately. He actually tries to act out stand up. He cracks me up, so this morning he comes to me with a basket on his head that we just received from a customer that was hand woven in Bangladesh. He looks at me and speaks in an Asian accent and says, "Hello, I am a Chinese slave, I have been working for days digging underground tunnels for the soldiers to pass through." He did not bat an eye, crack a smile, nothing, he said as if though he really was a Chinese slave. I looked at him and busted out laughing. He had that basket on his head with Christmas PJ's on. I thought I would die. My kids crack me up and I am so blessed to have them!
I am going to try to keep up with the blogging. I think I have us in a routine now. So for now, I am off to finish homeschooling and do some work for Sophisticakes and more. I hope everyone's weekend ROCKS!
