Cheri's Cakes!

Here are some of the cakes that I have made over the years. I love making cakes. I don't have pictures of all of them on this computer, but these were a few of my favorites. I have a lot of favorites... The hardest part about making cakes, especially for other people, is keeping my kids away from the cake. I have only had one serious issue...let's just say I wound up having to make another cake, but the little ones really enjoyed the first one!! haha My mom always made all of our birthday cakes so I grew up not knowing that you can buy cakes from a store...who knew! However, I really don't like store-bought cakes...they just don't taste very good to me. My Mom spoiled me with her cakes I guess!! She made AMAZING cakes. I remember one time I had croup really bad and I got to stay up with her and watch her make this huge wedding cake...INCREDIBLE!! You're awesome MOM!! Thank you for all of the cakes over the years...loved them!! Anyway, just thought I would share one of the things I love to do with you...hope you enjoy the pictures!!

Family Pictures at Kehli's baptism.

This is a picture of us the night of Kehli's baptism-Sept. 22, 2007. We had been out on the soccer fields all day and so we were all a little rosy! Tayler was a week old. It was a very busy time for us!! :) Busy, but VERY SPECIAL!!!! Katelyn will love this picture when she's older.

Here is a picture of the whole family (that was at the baptism).
Top Row: Grandpa Wright (holding Nicholas - Marci's little boy), Oma Mickelsen, Aunt Marci, Brittaney, Christopher, Opa Mickelsen, Cheri (holding 1 wk. old Tayler), Rich, Grandma Wright.
Bottom Row: Emma (Marci's little girl), Katelyn, Kehli (her baptism day) and Brenden.
