We took Ethan and Olivia out for lunch today. Ethan ordered an egg with a runny yolk, hash browns,bacon and a piece of toast, that boy ate everything on his plate..He adores a runny egg, scramble i and he won't touch it...Kids Miss Olivia ordered a hot dog and fries, both had milk..Boy they are so much fun to feed. Ethan has named himself ma's taste tester..He knows how to boost my ego. According to him I'm the best cooking ma in the world
so his eagerness to please has made the events and terror of our car ride tonight easier to handle.

Thanks for sharing that, Michael. Very cute.

I organized a banquet for our youth group on Friday and I made a cake that looks like a gingerbread house (it is gingerbread cake with gingerbread and royal icing trim - check my avatar). It was announced that this was part of the dessert buffet and was actually a cake and everyone (50 teens and young adults) were totally shocked. Now most of them shouldn't be because they know that I am a cake decorator.

Anyway, I am eating my dinner with the rest of my helpers and a young lady comes up and says "Mrs. Beier, we are all standing around the dessert table wanting a piece of cake but no one wants to cut it because it is too beautiful". I smiled because I was able to read between the lines "we really don't know HOW to cut it so we will leave it to you". I love my kids!

We all can use a smile and there is nothing like a little child or a good friend to do that for you.
We picked up our Ethan today and took him to lunch. I was grumpy because of having to go visit the doc to answer questions boo hiss. When we got there, my little guy jumped in the car gave me a hug and said I love you ma..Smile You bet..Then when I logged on here I saw that someone had looked at the pictures and commented..Thank you Lady Cook, you are a sweet heart.
I'm grinning big time.

Thumbs up New bottom-freezer refrigerator!

Yesterday, the apartment manager bought a bottom freezer refrigerator for my one-bedroom apartment. I'm thrilled. The new refrigerator arrives Tuesday.
