This started out as a blog about our domestic adoption. So all of the older posts are about that journey. It was an interesting one, and it led us to our son, Jacob. My dream since I was a little girl was typical of most little girls. I wanted to get married, and have children and be a stay at home Mom. Although, not a very popular choice for a profession now a day, I find it very rewarding. As a matter of fact, every day is an adventure! I've been told personally that the stay at home Mom profession isn't 'work', but spend a day with me and you'll see just how much 'work' it is!!! It's blessed work!

Resurrection Cake

This is the resurrection cake I made for Sunday lunch. I want Jake to know the real reason for the season. It was SO fun to do! I used a box cake mix, and my Pampered Chef Mixing Bowl. I made the frosting (recipe follows). I can't wait until Sunday to have a piece! =)

1/2 cups margarine, softened
2 oz melted unsweetened chocolate cooled
3 cups powdered sugar
3 Tbsp milk
2 tsp real vanilla extract 
Mix together until blended. 

Garnished cake with two drops of food coloring, 1/2 tsp of water in a ziploc bag. Add the coconut and knead. Add more food coloring for deeper tone.

  1. Roxanne,
    I raised my children as a stay at home Mom,nothin like it. I'd do it all over again. No matter what, always make time to lay a hold of God and study your Bible. It will help you keep a Christian character and guide you in decision making. Your marriage and children will benefit from it always. God Bless
