Our Heroes




To say that today has been an emotional day, well is putting it lightly! I have been thankful all day long that I am able to have my husband around to talk to...

We are positive that the firefighters in our local town, saved Derrick's life. If they wouldn't have gotten to our house in 7 minutes, Derrick might not be alive today. Time is not on your side when you are having a stroke. Many more minutes and Derrick would have lost his life in our house. Thankfully the firefighters were there, and got him out and into the ambulance rather quickly, then made the crucial decision to life flight him to the #1 trauma hospital in the Pacific North West. So to share our gratitude we made a cake for the firefighters and brought it to them to say thank you for saving Derrick's life!

After a big debate on what to write on the cake, we ended up saying "Thank you" and "Our Heros" Yes I am aware heroes is spelled with an e when you pluralize it! I know that now, but we debated when writing it, and got it wrong.... oops.

The firefighters, seemed very happy that we came by to say thank you. I almost burst into tears just saying thank you... but I refrained.

Go hug your loved one's today....

LOVE that cake! Did you make it yourselves?? Or did you buy it and then pretty it up!?

Either way, you guys are awesome to remember those who assisted you from 1 year ago. Blessings upon Blessings to you and the Firemen!

(My dad is a fireman so I have a special place in my heart for those guys...!)

I made it, and decorated it all by myself. Derrick's mom (a professional cake decorator) would show me how to make the different kinds of borders, then I did it!!
