A few weeks ago I hosted a baby shower for a friend. The theme was airplanes because the babies nursery will be decorated in airplanes. I made a cute sign and a banner that matched the invitations.

i also made a yummy cake. One tier was chocolate cake with chocolate filling and the other was white cake with buttercream filling. It was iced in all in buttercream. I decorated the cake with fondant letters and fondant airplanes.

I wanted to add more decoration to this cake but ran out of time :(

I have had a lot more free time recently and still trying to catch up on photo editing from the past month. I am so happy to have a new little nephew named Jenson. I am bummed that I didn't get any newborn pictures of the little guy, but I did get some pictures of him at a family gathering a few weeks ago. He was about 7 weeks old in these pictures.

I love how he is smilling in his sleep in the picture.
