Happy new year everyone!

Well this is it, the last day. I don't know how I'm only at day 364 when it's the last day of the year...I guess I miss counted somewhere, but I know I published a pic for every day so somewhere on the blog I must have labelled 2 entries with the same date. Oh well, I'm not going to go back and re-fix them all now...I'm just glad that I no longer have to be a slave to my camera. It was a fun project but it was difficult at times. I'm just proud that I took the challenge, stuck with it, and made it through to the end!
Happy birthday Wally! I made his cake today. I asked him a few days ago what kind of cake he wanted and he said "I don't know...The Enterprise!" So this is what I came up with. The ship and planet are fondant, and planet Jupiter is hand painted, though he thought it was Mars, go figure. The cake was a lemon cake with a blueberry filling, two of his favourite flavours.

I needed to find a spot in the kitchen for my new Kitchen Aid mixer. I found one spot but I needed to move a few things into a little used cabinet by the stove. I tried to clear it out but the guy who built this kitchen (my husband) did all kinds of weird things. There was a some kind of separator inside that I couldn't get out because a screw driver wouldn't fit, so I actually had to take the whole counter apart. What a mess. This was supposed to be a 5 minute job, instead it took 3 hours!
Today Ryan had a half day at school, I had to pick something up there, so I was invited to have lunch with the kids. Alex was with me so he got to experience what it would be like at school with all the other kids. He loved it of course. Here he is sitting at one of the tables eating.
