Let me just start by saying, I am not a baker. I'm not good at it nor do I enjoy it. But my kiddos think that mom's homemade cakes and especially my frosting are the best.
My cakes are generally lopsided. I blame the oven, but it's very likely my fault.
This cake came to be because the first one I made broke into about 7 pieces when I was taking it out of the pan. I nearly cried...
Did I mention I don't like baking...?
I made a whole new cake this morning. I left it in the pan until I was sure it had "set" so to speak.
This one came out in one piece..thank goodness.
I decided to use some of the chunks of cake to create a hill for the freshly washed Army men to make their stand upon.
This was also good to help camouflage the lopsidedness of the cake.
Since I was adding crumbly cake to the top and trying to frost it as well I needed something to cover my mistakes. Crushed up graham crackers fit the bill. It looks a bit like sand or at least some rugged terrain if you use your imagination.
I hope he likes it...
I do know that it tastes better than it looks. :)

No, I haven't changed my allegiance...
I'm still a Vikings fan.
Little J had a birthday party to go to today for a neighborhood friend.
The Packer fans on the block.
It seemed fitting that her American Girl doll would be a Green Bay fan as well.
The gifts should have been opened by now so I think it's safe to post this.
If not...hey, what are you doing browsing the internet while the party is going on?!?!
Put that smart phone away.

Just a page in another art journal.
I didn't have any idea where I was going with it until it all came together.
I'm finding that I'm working more and more that way lately.
As an aside...I'm looking at moving my blog to Wordpress to actually USE the domain Mr. G bought for me a while back.
I'm having anxiety about making the move since I've been with Blogger for so long.
When I make the move I hope you will come visit me there....
I'll definitely keep you posted...

So glad the kids don't have school today!!
We can stay in and stay warm.
Although the cold is doing it's best to try to get in...
That is ice on the inside of the front door. I even made a draft stop but the cold is persistent.
Anybody needs me...I'll be under a blanket, drinking tea.
