Payson, Prescott, or Pinetop... Yeah! Pinetop!

Last week Dusty, Carma and I went on a vacation for spring break. When I was telling my dad we were going I couldn't remember which 'P' city it was. For the record though, we were in Pinetop. It was fun to hang out with Dusty's little brother Brett and his parents. We only wish his other two brothers could have come too. We played LOTS of card games. By the end of the trip I could only think about my card strategy. But the best part was playing in the snow. It only lasted a day (which is plenty for me!) and we only went out in it for a little while, but it was really fun.
Here are the highlights...

The snow was blowing right into her face and she DID NOT like it. Grandpa almost got in a lot of trouble because he almost lost one of our crystal pacifiers in the snow... Maybe I shouldn't have brought the white one outside in the snow.

My Baby is a GENIUS!!!!!!!!!!

Carma rolled over today! It was awesome! There was a man here who was fixing our front door and Carma and I were on the floor looking through some music I need to learn. I put her on her tummy so she could get some exercise and after just a minute or two she was on her back! I was totally amazed! I was so excited that I yelled,

"Mike (the door guy), my baby just rolled over for the first time!"

I'm sure he didn't care but even still he yelled back at me,

"Congrats Chelsea, That's Awesome!"

And let me tell you his excitement was believable. After that I ran and got the video camera, put her on her tummy again and violla... she did it again. Then I remembered that I don't know how to get Video camera footage on the computer yet so I got my still camera which can take short silent video and this was the outcome...

This was her third time in a row! Later on Dusty's lil brother came over to help me unload some dirt for our new garden (pictures to come) and she even did it again for him!

Carma is Brilliant!!!!

Space Party!!!!!!!

I've been dying to show my pictures from the Space Party but I had left my Camera at me mother's abode. But I got it back! Here's my UFO cake with the homemade fondant.
Homemade is definately the way to go. it was much easier to work with than the pre-made/ store bought crap. I thought it was a bit boring so...
I made it "spacier" by adding metallic stars and rhinestones-
not edible ones as my Mom found out..

That's me in the Spacetastic rocket ship my Mom built.


And Kelli...



And here's us as multi-eyed aliens. It was a last minute costume idea that turned out to be awesome! I love googlie eyes! Notice the bra OVER the shirt... a classic!

My Name is Chelsea...

I'm tired of not having any clothes to wear because I'm so much bigger than I'd like to be. I went shopping for a few essentials to hold me over while I lose this 'baby weight' and it was a sad experience for me. I managed to get a few items but it wasn't as fun as shopping should be.
So, I'm admitting to the blogosphere that
"My name is Chelsea, and I have some weight to lose."
I've officially started working on my problem today, and I can't 'weight' to feel like myself again!
WISH ME LUCK!

Daddy / Daughter Tummy Time

I just thought they looked so cute together!
My little sister just turned 22 and she's having a space themed party on Saturday Night. My Mom is making some amazing decorations and I volunteered to make the cake. I'm trying to build my cake decorating skills up so that I can be really good. I haven't decided exactly what this cake will look like but I've been wanting to try to make my own fondant to cover it with.
Today I tried it and it acctually turned out ok. I should have sifted my powdered sugar first though... oh well; live and learn.
Dusty took some pictures of my adventure...



There's my finished fondant. I'll post pictures of the true final project once I'm done.

My Morning

Carma and I folded a lot of Laundry today. It was boring.
However, I did watch a few good shows!
With all the excitment of the morning, she fell asleep.
