last saturday the kids helped make a chocolate cake and white cupcakes for nana’ birthday.



BUT, everybody knows the BEST part is licking the spatula afterwards.

later, after everything cooled, we made chocolate frosting and frosted the cake and cupcakes.

sara was more interested in eating the frosting from the spatula… and ANYWHERE else it fell.

luke reported that he had fun at school.  he did miss sara and ashley.

when i asked if he made any new friends, he said yes.  i asked if he remembered any of their names, and he said yes, kylee.  (of course it is a GIRL he remembers)

this morning, he excitedly asked if he got to ride the bus all by himself again.

the friday night before christmas week, we made a gingerbread house.  we have never done one before, but we figured the kids would enjoy it. 


we got it pretty much all done and decorated, and the roof started sliding off. so,we just let the kids eat some of it.
