The 1st Semifinal Competition

31 Jan

Well, wow!  I can’t believe how long it’s been.  Sorry for the delay, everyone.  As some of you know, I was quite pregnant when we finished the last cupcake.  Needless to say, we quickly filmed ALL the semifinals and the finale… and then had the baby…before I could post them.

My son, Kenneth (named after his Daddy), was born on November 4th.

Yes.  He’s almost 3 months old now.  And those of you that know anything about babies know why I am JUST NOW getting around to these videos.
