This gal I visit teach has started decorating cakes. She's hoping to get her name out there so that she can do cakes for her full-time job. I think she is very talented. She even entered a cake in the contest at the state fair. From what I understand she offers pretty competitive rates too. I know she mostly wants to do wedding cakes, but she has done other occasions too. Her blog is karassweetdesigns.blogspot.com She has a few pictures on there to give you an idea of what she's doing. I absolutely love her Halloween cake. She designed, made it, and then she and her husband enjoyed it! Anyways, she does cakes in Idaho and Utah so if you are in need send her an email.

I recieved this email from one of my old Relief Society Presidents from college. I thought I would post it on here to help her out. If you have the time and interest, go check it out for her.
I am sending this email to everyone in my address book. I am sorry if I haven't contacted some of you in a while. I am writing to ask everyone to visit my blog at http://motherhadasecret.blogspot.com/ and read the first two chapters of my book "Mother Had A Secret". If you like it, please leave a comment and tell me so. If you want to read more, please tell your friends to read it and pass it on. The book is about my childhood and what life was like living with a mother diagnosed with Multiple Personality Disorder.
The New York publishers won't even take the time to read it because I am not a celebrity and they don't want to take a chance on anyone who hasn't already made a name for themselves. My agent told me, however, that if I can get a large number of people to read the blog and leave their comments, then I can prove to the editors that there is a market for the book and influence them to publish it. Please, please, please help me with this. I need everyone's help if this is going to work! Let's show the publishers and the world that some of the most powerful and compelling stories come from ordinary people and aren't just found among celebrities.
Thanks for your help!

Kayson just came into my room a couple of minutes ago and says "where did Brylee get that fetch". Kade says "that what?" "That Fetch!" Then I remember Kade had given Brylee a frisbee to put away a few minutes before this. So the frisbee was a fetch. I love what kids come up with!

Here is a dumb Deidra moment for you.
So today I was trying to call my mom to ask her a question and nobody would pick up. I figured she must be on the ohter line so I just kept trying back every 15 min or so (They have call waiting, but don't usu it most of the time) Anyways, I finally get through and my brother answers the phone with some fake accent. I couldn't tell what he said, but I laughed and told him to go get mom. He continued with his accent and asked 'excuse me'. I was like, your good but not that good I can tell it's you Cheston. He still wouldn't pass the phone to my mom, so figuring he just wanted to chat for a minute I proceeded to tell him about when Kade pranked Halle into thinking she'd called pizza hut. Then I again ask him to go get mom. At this point I hear a click. I'm was thinking 'no way did he just hang up on me'. Then I started to get a sinking feeling in my stomach as I thought to see what number I'd called. Yeah, I'd called a hotel out in Utah in between trying my mom and had forgotten. So some desk clerk in Utah is thinking what a looney I am today. And thank goodness he doesn't know me. Oh brother!!!

Santa brought me some cute little elves to decorate my house with next year. The kids have loved them. I have caught Brylee hugging them on many occasions when she thinks no one is looking. And Brancyn just thinks they are his buddies. So here are a couple of videos of Brancyn with them. I thought they were pretty cute, but maybe only a mother appreciates them:)

Brogan, Liberty, and Kayson. They really
enjoyed this tent. They slept in it and played
Gavin, Hunter, and Brylee.
Gavin is so funny, he is so shy that I
couldn't hardly get him to look me in the eye
the whole time he was there. He would just
look down and smile. What a cutie!

The kids each had a turn crushing candy
canes for the candy they made.

The prized lightning McQueen tent!
