My first Apple Pie

You would think that since I help my mom with her Catering/Wedding business that I know how to cook. Well I do know how to cook, what I don't know is how to Bake. Today my mom taught me how to make a homemade apple pie from scratch. We had a really great time and the pie turned out really good. It was actually really easy to make your own crust. I assumed that it would take a lot longer than it did. Since Alexis is allergic to cinnamon I made her her own tiny pie without cinnamon. It was really cute. I love that I am able to be close to my mom and that we can share days like this together. She decided she needed to get a picture of me with my leg perched up because I always have my leg up while I am cooking in the kitchen. It's not so weird, my sister Jenn does the same thing!!

Patrick Andrade's Birthday

Today we had the Andrade's over to celebrate Patrick's birthday. Patrick, Esther, Gabby and Natalia came. We love the friendship we have made with the Andrade's and will forever love their family. We always have fun when they are around and we spend most of our time laughing. The Andrade's are huge Miami fans so I decided to make Patrick and "U" cake. He was pretty excited and it turned out great. What a fun day this was.
