Ultimate Blog Party 2011!


Welcome here happy party bloggers! My name is Jay and welcome to my family blog, 'This is the Great Adventure.' My blog is a mix of stories about parenting, creativity and faith. So without further ado, lets meet the cast of characters!


My world consists of my wonderful husband Ken. He is an animator, author and drinker of coffee. He is always surprising me with his many talents, and I am in awe of his love for us.


Our first born, Ariel, who is 4 and a half. She is spunky and full of determination. She loves dance, music and making us laugh. She is extremely smart for her age and of course this keeps us on our toes. Her goal at the moment is to grow her hair as long as Rapunzel's... wish us luck!


Then come our son Xander, who is 1 and a half ball of crazy! He loves to jump and climb on everything and yet stops and comes running when he hears music. His smile just makes you melt, making it hard to get upset at him when he does something wrong. His latest trick, finding a way to get all his hot wheel cars inside our couch... seriously, I had to cut a hold on the bottom to get them out. Good grief!



Lastly there is me, otherwise known lately as the crazy cake lady! Just shortly before Christmas I started up a small at home business in graphic arts, photography and cake decorating. Little did I know how it was going to take off! Before I knew it I was booking up into the summer months and finding myself balancing a part time job with my regular duties at home with the kids. Its been a challenge at times but a great chance to grow. I love creating stuff and its a wonderful outlet for me. Check out my business page 'Jaybird Creations' if you wish to view my stuff.


Since you all came for a party, I better have some cake, especially if I am the crazy cake lady. Well you are in luck! Today is my Dad's birthday, and I made him a special cake... I am sure he wouldn't mind if you had a piece. So enjoy some 'Yellow Submarine' and come back again soon!
