It's been a while since I've posted (shame on me!); life has just been rolling along, no major hiccups nor whoopdedoos. But things are starting to pick up. Paul is home for winter break (from Thanksgiving week through New Years Day - weehawww!); we've made plane reservations for a Christmas trip to Petoskey (lots faster than running there); we partied on Thanksgiving day with bunches of Millers and extended family; and we just celebrated my sister-in-law Kitty's 60th birthday. Kitty's younger daughter, Amber, and I made a cake to honor the day. I've made a lot of birthday cakes over my years of motherhood, some quite niftily decorated - scorpion, sailing ship, island, Star Trek Enterprise, a bicycle, a guitar, and a really cool working volcano - but, as you can probably deduce, all for boys. This time, a lovely cake and with the help of Amber who actually knows how to do fancy cake decorations. Many hours later, we had our cake - and the next day, our rewards - the question "Are those real flowers?" and the smile on Kitty's face!
