It's Sunday. I'm answering your questions from the week. Then I'm going to bed. I may or may not have a glass of wine and stuff a wad of cotton in my ears to drown out my kids' incessant fighting tonight.
You always amaze me with your cakes?!Did you take any courses or something?
Thank you and yes, yes I did.
Do you use something,(like a picture), to help you design these cakes or do you use a pre-made pattern ?
For the pineapple one, I used a picture of SpongeBob's house and a picture of an actual pineapple and kinda combined them. Usually I use a picture of some sort as a guide for the cakes I make.
Um...That's a pretty FLAT pizza behind Austin's cute face. I thought y'all Chicagoans only ate pizza that rivals lasagne in depth!!! Please explain!
Yes, yes it is. That's Rosati's. Good pizza, but not CHICAGO pizza. We usually get that for parties because, when you're balancing a plate on your lap, it's easier to eat "flat pizza" than Lou's.
*gasp* You are admitting that you defaced a library book?!?!?
Defaced? Oh heck no! I increased its value by signing it! You know, because I'm all famous and everything.
Now that Austin is 15 (!), don't you think it is time for sidebar picture updates?
Yes, yes I do. In fact I was just talking to my web designer about that very thing!
I was shocked to see how grown up Austin looked in the picture you posted! How's he doing in school now that he's had time to adjust to the honors classes?
So.. hows that going for you Dawn? Are they hanging up their coats yet?
Too funny! How did you get Clay and Brooklyn to have such serious faces [in the video]? How many takes did that take?
Amazingly enough, I didn't even have to tell them to act bored. It was almost as if they really were bored with the whole coat hanging demonstration! Inconceivable, I know!
Clayton has the best laugh EVER! Thank you for the morning giggle!
Yeah, it's pretty contagious. If he ever figures that out, he'll be able to get away with murder.
ha! lol! would use it, but here in south Louisiana, you really only wear a coat once a year when there's a freakish below 80 day!
Now was that really necessary?!!!
Holy MOSES - Austin became, like, a real man-boy since I've seen him.
I know. :( They grow up so darn fast! But, on the bright side, he helped me hang up the Christmas lights outside because he's taller than I am and he climbed on the roof to clean out the gutters while he was up there! :)
And to those of you who still think there are no half gallons of ice cream in the world...
"Anyway, I wanted to mention that your SSO question from another reader about ice cream containers is correct. Most ice cream containers are no longer 1/2 gallons; rather, they have shrunk the size down to 1.75 or even 1.5 quarts!"
"Hate to tell you, dear, but the half gallon cartons of ice cream? They're only 1.5-1.75 gallon now."
HA! HA!!! In your face! Take that! I WIN!!! I mean, ahem, yes, yes, they do still make half gallons of ice cream. You just have to know what brands to look for.
And now, it's bedtime for me. Goodnight Seattle!
