It was dark and damp outside, which almost came as a relief. I needed a house day, a day to stay cozy inside. It seemed to be a kitchen day. We all spent a lot of time in there.
I first got Gabe in there to help me prepare lunch. He seemed to be causing a lot of trouble with his brothers, so as I often do in such cases, I called him to my side to be a helper. This worked its usual magic and he cheered right up. One by one, everyone ended up in the kitchen wanting a job to do.
Since it was Annie’s birthday today we had a great reason to make a cake. Everyone did their part (except maybe Noah who crawled around getting into trouble…. he must have been feeling better today!), and then were all rewarded with something to lick!
Here’s the cake! Triple Chocolate Cake with Crunchy Buttercream Icing (Skor Bar!). Mmmmmm! Yum, yum.
And finally, singing “Happy Birthday”!
