Kudos to all of you bloggers out there! I can’t figure out how to be a mom, work a busy schedule, take care of things AND have time to blog. I barely get the laundry folded! Although I haven’t blogged in a while, it’s always been a part of Sweet Kev that I miss. The desserts I make are not just about being pretty; they encapsulate a message, they hold emotions, and carry a sense of caring and celebration. That being said, I decided it would be most appropriate to blog about the recent simcha in my family. My baby sister and brother-in-law had the cutest little boy/girl twins this past Wednesday.
Both times I was pregnant, people were always telling me that I was having boys. I spent days baking for my “boys” shalom zachor’s… needless to say, I had 3 girls and lots of “it’s a boy” cookies!
So here we are again, my sister is pregnant with twins. Do I bake or not?? So I don't bake and… she has a boy!
From Wednesday night until Shabbos, I was pretty busy. I was able to get my sister in law to wear my cupcake apron, (which she had made fun of earlier in the day), and got her dipping cake pops, baking cupcakes, and making fondant toppers, while I was busy with cookies and an ombre blue cake. A good friend came by with some, much needed, special treats to keep us awake (you know who you are…thank you so much!). It was a long few nights, but totally worth it. It was a lot of fun coming up with different designs, matching the cookies to the paper goods, and figuring out how to sneak in a little bit of pink here and there for the little princess. It’s all about the little details ;)!
In any case, everything was baked in time! The shalom zachor was so special, and my new niece and nephew are beyond amazing. My sister and brother-in-law are already riding on no sleep, but are doing awesome. I couldn’t be happier for them both! I am beyond excited to watch these little munchkins grow up and continue to share in all of the upcoming milestones!
