Homemade cakes with all the typical designs: bunnies, barns, m&m confections with enough sugar to make you go blind!

We love our Kourtni Rae!
She is a joy to have around and has blessed this home and family with her sweet, pleasing personality. She still calls her mom "mommy" or "mama" and she still calls her dad "daddy". She is obedient and knows that when she doesn't do her laundry like Mom says, she doesn't get to go to her friend's house...hehehe

Happy Birthday!
