What kind of Cake are you?

You Are a Red Velvet Cake

Rich, decadent, and sensual.

You have a deep appeal that transcends all trends.

You are the definition of passion: intense, adventurous, and seductive.

Mike's Birthday was at the end of December (he turned 32 this year) and Pace & Josie wanted to do something FUN for their "Daddy's" Birthday. They wanted him to take "us" sledding. Really how could we resist with the blue skies and temperatures in the 50's! So we enjoyed a whole day packed full of fun sledding. This was Josie's first time to go and I have to say she wasn't to much of a fan..... I don't know... it could have been the whole fact that Mike put both girls on one sled and sent them flying down the hill first thing!! It was pretty hysterical to see their smiles at the top of the hill turn down the faster they picked up speed going downhill. (I hope we don't sound like awful parents)! We tried a couple more times to get Josie to enjoy it going down with each of us but she'd rather watch. Maybe next time out she'll want to do more. We had a blast and we pretty much had to DRAG Paceroo off the hill!!We couldn't decide Who had more fun the girls or Mike and I!! You be the judge!

After a long day of Fun, we returned home to later that night a "Feast". I made Mike some of his favorites for dinner which included Crab, Lobster Tails, and Prime Rib. It was All very delicious and of course we followed with one of Mike's newest favorites I just started making - Pistachio Cake- YUM !

This year the girls got a little spoiled, well I think they get spoiled everday! But hey what can you expect when you start to Christmas shop in August....and...You forget what you had gotten till 2 days before christmas!!
Pace's favorite thing she says she got was her Princess cash register and a pretend baking set for her kitchen. Oh and her Fairy trunk with fairy Dress-ups!
Josie I would definately say her favorite was her "hore-eeee" in translation "Horsey" and her princess piano.
And of course their matching Arm chairs with stools!!
