Since leaving school this afternoon I've dropped our daughter off to work and came home to decorate a cake for a birthday party tomorrow. Our niece's youngest son is turning one tomorrow and I got to make the cake. It's been awhile since I pulled my cake decorating tool box from the cupboard. I had so much fun.
So rather than writing a long blog, writing, or researching for future books while Mags was at work. Instead, I visited with my husband in the kitchen while I sketched with a toothpick on white frosting so I could bring Elmo to life on top of the cake. I took a couple cake decorating classes, "back in the day", with my cousin Missy. We had fun and learned a lot. It was great to use and revisit these skills.
Looking forward to seeing family and watching the one-year old dig in.
For now, we are off to the Relay for Life. I posted pictures of the cakes and a video from this morning.
Do you know when to say "no" to support your family?
