A Great Day for Baking!

The first snow of the season is falling today and we are staying inside the house trying to keep warm. Brrrrr! It's only 35 degrees outside! One of my favorite things to do is to get Chris in the kitchen with me to bake something. Our recipes are never very sophisticated. Box mixes with very few added ingredients seem to work best. Today we decided to bake a cake during Joey's nap. It's fun to do, and it's something quiet that we can do together without waking Joe up.

Here's Chris (wearing his Skeleton sweatshirt from Halloween!!!) helping with the mixing stage. He added all of the ingredients himself and is now watching to see them all get incorporated:




And here he is embellishing the frosted cake:



Lastly, the finished product! Ok, so it's a bit early for the Christmas decorations, but the only other sprinkes we had in the house were Halloween themed and we are tired of orange and black!
