Shaun and I went on to the circus with my parents! It was pretty fun. It's amazing that they come up with some many different acts. They had dogs, tiger, elephants, horse, and zebras that all did different acts. There was also tight rope walkers, human cannon balls, walking and the ceiling and a few more. It was fun to feel like a kid again. After the circus we walked around The Gateway and enjoyed the nice weather!

Shaun received a email from his brother, Byron, tonight. Inside the email was this picture and caption:

James said: This is not a kid, this is a Shaun . He lives in Utah.

For those of you who don't know, James is one of our nephew that lives in Indiana. I thought it was cute so I decided I needed to share with you!

Cake Blog

I have decide to make a blog to post all the cakes Shaun and I have made/will make! We are really having a lot of fun with cake! Check it out Cakes by Shaun and Alicia

September Thus Far!

Well it's been over a month again since I have updated this thing. I keep telling myself that I am going to get on here and post about things that we have done, but it doesn't happen because we just stay so busy. But at least I am here now updating you!

Since I last updated here are the major things we have done or have happened in our lives.

+ I went part time at work. It has been really nice! The paychecks scary me, but I know that we will be okay. The reason I went part time is I am back in school. There is so much to remember, but hopefully I will get it all.

+ Our ward this year, instead of having a ward camp out, had I ward carnival. For this Shaun and I made two cakes. One for the dinner we had Friday night and one for the cake walk the next day. Here's how they turned out.

This is the cake we made for the dinner. Nothing too fancy, but still cute

This is the cake I made for the Cake Walk.

+ The Saturday of Labor day weekend Shaun and I went up to Swiss Days. It was sprinkling on our way up there, but by the time we parked it has stopped. While there we ate their yummy BBQ dinner and just walked around. There was a lot of cute stuff (including fun baby stuff!!), but I didn't have the need to buy any of it. We had taken Provo Canyon up there and so on the way back down we stopped at Bridal Veil Falls. It was really pretty.


+ It was my Grandma Nina's 85th birthday this year. So on Labor Day we had a little family get together for her birthday. It was fun to get to see family, especially those we don't get to see very often. I decided that I wanted to make my Grandma her very own giant cup cake! I needed to have spent more time on it, but I still think it turned out okay.

We were trying to hide it from my Grandma so she wouldn't see it... That's why there is such a great background.

+We went to the State Fair opening night with Shaun's parents, Kim and Michelle. It was fun. We walked around and looked at all the different things the fair has to offer. It was a lot of fun. When Kim and Michelle decide it was time for them to go, Shaun and I decided to catch the last of the rodeo! We didn't see much of it, but when we did see was fun!

The sheep were trying to chew their way out of the pens

The cute baby pigs 

+ I love Greek food and every year I go to the Greek Festival. This year Shaun and I went. The food was REALLY tasty! It was also a nice little getaway for the two of us.

+ We have season tickets to Hale Centre Theatre. It has been a lot of fun for us. They latest musical we have seen is Scarlett Pimpernel. It is SO funny! This was Shaun first time seeing it and I think my fourth time. So very enjoyable! I would definitely recommend you see it.

+ This last weekend I had I little time away with my Mom, my mother in law and two of my aunts. We went to Logan for Time Out for Women. It was a REALLY enjoyable experience. We stay at the Sherwood Hills Resort for the night! It was so pretty there!

This is the view outside our room!

+ Saturday after TOFW was done we headed home so that Shaun and I could go to the Brad Paisley concert. That was a lot of fun! It started to sprinkle though, so we decided it was time to head home early! What we did see was great!

+ It was our ward's Primary program on Sunday.  I was amazed at how well our little Sunbeams did! Even Logan!! (Well mostly because he was hiding most of it...)

+ Last night we went spent some time with my friend Nan and her husband Gene. We had sat around a fire making smores and talking. It was great to spend time with them! 

Well I think that about updates you on our lives! I hope everything is going great for all of you out there!
