Ok - I finally broke down and spent the money to buy a domain name and to put together a web page for getting the business up and running. Kati is busily working getting the page up with hopes that this will help her out when she is downsized in April. Kristin has done a great job with her photography and recommending purple and green as our colors. Michelle (from The Bagel Bakery) and I will be doing a wedding show in February. We have been discussing that this is a market we need to take advantage of now before someone else steals it away from us. Michelle has been the answer to my prayers with the ability to use the bakery kitchen! We are trying to figure out the logistics of shipping. So everyone go check out the website at lollicakebakeshop.com and become a fan on facebook!
When I was a special education teacher, we often used the time out room for our students. This was in a residential treatment facility so being able to remove the student from bad choices being made resulted in a safer situation for all of us. The students thought that we, the teachers, also should be sent to time out...I was totally for this but the principal didn't quite agree! Today I purchased Kailyn her very own time out chair...she already understands what time out is and puts her dolls in it. Kailyn typically get sent to time out when she screams...and she has a very healthy set of lungs on her. As you can see from the picture, this chair called out to me to buy it! How could I resist with the sweet little cupcakes on it...too bad it is a tiny little chair because I think I might just need a time out on occasion!
Kailyn celebrated her second birthday on December 31st...her birthday theme - Hello Kitty! Mommy made Hello Kitty cupcakes and Grammy made Hello Kitty lollicakes (thank you Bakerella for your tips!). Kailyn looked adorable in her Hello Kitty dress that matched her Build a Bear Hello Kitty's dress...and she loved her new boots once the lollicakes were removed from them!
