Yesterday my friend Sue taught me how to make frosting roses.
I made about 2 dozen roses and decided to let the girls have a cupcake decorating morning.

Socks for Joel
I started them months ago, but I am going to wait until Valentines day to give them to him.

Anyone out there have a favorite sock yarn?

Happy 10 year Anniversary!!!

You can find the recipe in this book
I love this book!!!-every recipe turns out to be so delicious.
My friend Lene made the cake and rolls...... if only she would write a Danish cookbook.

imperfect pear

These imperfect pears caught my eye

I've never had a red pear before

Tomorrow I will bake them into a Pear Custard Pie.

Joel let Matts give him a buzz

She gave him a new look.
The buzzers died after only this much was cut
good thing we found a back-up pair of buzzers

What a good Dad.

my little kittens won't lose their mittens

Well at least I hope not.....
I placed my favorite wooden bowl by the front door to catch all of our hats, mittens, and scarves.
Most days it has worked-now if I could only keep track of their socks.
It has been -10 degrees today- add the windchill, and this bowl should be empty.

Days this cold make me very thankful for my warm house and wool socks
