Em cake

  This is Em's birthday cake this year.  She really loves Les Mis and requested  this cake.  It was really fun to do.  I just covered the cake with white fondant then painted on it using black food coloring.  I haven't done anything artistic for a while and this was really fun!  It made me want to draw and paint again. We went to the late movie, The Hobbit, last night.  All of us really liked it.  When we got out at midnight, the wind was blowing and there were several inches of new snow.  We plowed through the drifts to get home.  Then we woke up to a big blizzard.  I don't know if a lot of snow came down, but there are spots with drifts several feet deep in the yard and driveway.  (There are bare spots too because of all the wind...)  It was a good day to stay inside!

Yay Erik!

We just got word that Erik was accepted to attend BYU-I.  Yay!!!!  I am so proud of my boy!  I am glad he will be following in the family tradition and attending  college at a really great place.  He is currently taking a college stats class, for credit through ISU, and so a bit of his math requirement is already being taken care of.  Good job Erik!!!
