Okay so I was at Leanne's house this weekend, and she asked me if I was baking Evan's b-day cake.
As you can see by my last cake attempt the answer is HELL NO!!!
I'll buy it from the store thanks. I don't need more pictures like the one to the right. I think it was more the icing then the acutel cake. The icing was way to runny and the top part of the cake shifted and split apart. That's why it looks like the leaning tower of cake!
I want a dinosaur theme for Evan's b-day and I don't think the above looks anything like a dinosaur. So there it is, I can bake pretty good cookies and squares, but cakes are out of my league. So is sowing come to think of it. I guess Evan will always have store bought costumes for Halloween and b-day cakes from the IGA bakery, but then again so did I and I think I'm a relatively well rounded individual. So I'm okay with not being the super mom when it comes to these two items.
Well that's all for me today. Tomorrow is Tubb of Tuesday and I've been working really heard this week. the crappy thing is, aunt flow has come to visit, so I'm not too sure I'll be getting the numbers (meaning 2 like 10-11-12-13) I wanted. But oh well, that's life. See you tomorrow!

Well ladies I didn't do as good as I wanted to, 4 pounds off. But now that I've gotten a hang of the program I'm hoping next week will be better. I know 4 pounds is nothing to sneeze at, but I was hoping my first week would yield a bigger number.
I didn't have time to get on the treadmill this week but Earl is going to be busy a a lot so I'll have no excuse or distraction this week. I find that I just want to get outside and walk which is much more entertaining, but it's been to cold the last few days. It's supposed to warm up this weekend so here's hoping. As you can see from Evan's picture I'm not the only one staring longingly out the window. He's so funny! Here's hopen Mother Nature decides its Spring!
My goal is to walk on the treadmill 3 times this week, and get outside with Evan and my stroller when ever he will allow for a total of 5 hours. I'm also going to try and avoid the Timmies. (just one on my day off with Danna on Wed.) I think I'm going to add a Timmies weekly count on my blog, it may help me avoid the liquid ass expander (Jordanna's words) if I have to admit and see the number in front of me.
So that's about it-oh, Leanne thank you, I did have the potatoes on my dinner shelf-I guess I just figured potatoes are a dinner food, I've moved it now, I may have to switch my dinner vegi to lunch and my salad to dinner. I can't imagine having the potatoes when they aren't on a yummy bed of broc.
Well that's it for me today. Talk to you tomorrow!

As I watched my mind filled with memories of watching this with my mom cross stitching in her chair when I was sick. I remember grabbing anything I could get my hands on to use as a microphone and sing along.
As a child it had flashy images, a story line that was easy to understand, and oh the music! Now as an adult I can appreciate the story line about the depression, the story is so much more then a red haired orphan who finds a home. I can also marvel at the talent! Annie who taps her way into Daddy Warbuck's heart. All the orphans who have the most beautiful singing voices.
As I watched I realized they don't make them like this anymore. The happy stories, the musicals, the dancing! The innocent story line, the bad villains to todays standards aren't really that bad at all. They where petty criminals, thieves, and con artists-instead of murders, aliens and natural disasters. The worst sware word you hear is "do you want a knuckle sandwich?" or "leapin lizards!" In order to get the Annie experience you have to go see a live show. To see true triple threat talent, the singers, actors and dancers. I truly miss those days of movies about talking animals, kids adventures and cats from outer space.
As I danced around with my baby in my arms to "We've got Annie" playing now rather loudly from my TV, I realized I want to find these movies to pass on to him. They can not be replaced The memories of curling up on the couch with a blanket and my family on a cold winter night are some of the fondest I have. I remember the happy days when my dad took me to the movie theater 3 times to see Cinderella, because GusGus and Lucifer the cat made him laugh! (BTW-I really didn't want to go by the third time and I remember telling him that.-lol) I will find them all. Rudolf the claymation cartoon, with the elf who wants to be a dentist and the island of unwanted toys. The cat from outer space movie, Shaggy the dog (the original-not the modern rip off), and Bed Knobs and Broomsticks, just to name a few.
And of course Annie-one of my top 3 favorites.
