Wind and Birthday cake!

It's super duper windy here today!
Is it where you're at?


Today Coop, Court & Brand came over to celebrate Court's Birthday!
My camera wasn't cooperating so I don't have very many good pics!
I have this oneeeeeeeeeeeeeee;)
Herrrrrrrrrrrrrrrre............................. my little man is acting as my assistant in the kitchen!
And I might add, he is quite excellent!

I made homemade noodles to accompany our other dinner yummers! Noodles are Court's fav!

I made a death by chocolate pound cake with orange cream cheese frosting in honor of Halloween, Court's fav holiday!
can I just say it was to die for! And I am not even a huge sweet eater!
I am no famous cake decorator so this is what she got;)
She loved it!

Peace everyone!

Happy Birthday again Snortie Bugar!

Oh, I love the photo of Cooper with the blue bowls! Cute!

Yes.....its been terribly windy and cold here today. Brr! My blogpost tomorrow will feature windy scenes!

Thanks for the link to the Mosaic info. Sounds like you're working for a organization which does a wonderful work in the world. That must make you feel good inside, I would think. To know you're really helping people. Good for you!

We drove by Manchester yesterday on our lived there once, right?

He is just sooo cute! What a sweetie. Sorry but we have had the absolute best balmy and beautiful day. Very unusual.

Can I have the recipe? That sounds like a wonderful wonderful oh my goodness kind of recipe!

I adore chocolate and orange. Do you think that it would convert to cupcakes?

We didn't get any wind here, but I'm sure looking forward to the fall weather. We had 80's all weekend. But that's CA for ya.

The cake looks delicious!!!! And I'm not a big cake fan but it looks good and cute!!!
