A Cameron funny and Happy Easter!

First off, Cameron is such a funny kid. He is constantly saying the cutest things that make me and Brett laugh. Cameron is at the stage where girls are gross and he doesn't like kisses and he doesn't like the word love, because he thinks that it is a "girl" word. Anyway, the other day he said to Brett (with a disgusted look on his face) "Dad, when I grow up and get married, am I going to have to kiss my wife?"
So funny! Give him a few more years, and I am sure that he will feel differently.

We had a great Easter today! The boys were up at the crack of dawn ready to go and see what the Easter bunny brought them. In a matter of minutes, they found their baskets and were sampling some of the yummy candy that was in them (Nothing like a little chocolate at 7:00 am). Then it was off to church . After church we came home and Jed and Kathy were here. They came over to spend the afternoon with us. I had to fight the boys to get our annual Easter picture taken and then of course the ties and Sunday dress were quickly replaced with shorts and t-shirts. We had a really nice afternoon. We had a little BBQ and Texas sheet cake for dessert (which I have already had way to much of). Then it was off to the park. The weather here was absolutely gorgeous today 70+ degrees and sunny! Can't beat that! Happy Easter!

Someone's being sneaky! Caught Austin sneaking some candy from his brother's basket!

Texas Sheet Cake (from All recipes)
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups white sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sour cream
2 eggs
1 cup butter
1 cup water
5 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

6 tablespoons milk
5 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup butter
4 cups confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10x15 inch pan.
Combine the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. Mix in the sour cream, then beat in the eggs. Set aside. In a saucepan, melt the butter, then stir in the water and 5 tablespoons cocoa. Bring mixture to a boil then remove from heat. Allow to cool slightly, then stir cocoa mixture into the dry ingredients, mixing until blended.
Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
For the icing: In a large saucepan, combine the milk, 5 tablespoons cocoa and 1/2 cup butter. Bring to a bowl, then remove from heat. Stir in the confectioners' sugar and vanilla, then fold in the nuts, mixing until blended. Spread frosting over warm cake.
