Since it is Mother's Day, I wanted to put up a memory of all my 4 babies!
Baby # 1
Tiger was born in the water at home in Fairfield, IA, after midnight
on Thursday, May 18, 2000. She was 7 lbs. 2 oz. and 22 inches long.
Lily was a determined baby, and so aware!
Anthony was born just barely out of the water at home in Fairfield, IA,
just before noon or "just in time for lunch" (as I like to say) on
Saturday, March 29, 2003. He was 10 lbs.
Skylar was very settled
and he actually gained a pound a week and so by the time he was just 6
weeks old he was wearing the clothes of a one-year old!
Baby # 3
Arianna Ceylon was born in the water at home in Fairfield, IA, at 7:00
AM exactly on Monday, April 8, 2008. She was 9 lbs, 9 oz. and 23 inches
Alexis was a very happy, quiet baby!
Baby # 4
Sienna Lanai was born in the water at home in Rapid City, SD, at 9:24
AM on Monday, July 31, 2009. She was 8 lbs, 12 oz. and 21.5 inches long.
Sofia melted into our large family perfectly!

Tonight I made homemade Marzipan covered with Semisweet Chocolate!
(When you don't blanch the almonds, this is what it looks like! But blanching the almonds first will give you the traditional white colored marzipan.)
I can't wait to experiment with this more! I remember making this years ago, but now I have so many fun ideas to try with it- like adding natural colors, or shaping it into leaves or other little designs for topping cakes!
