Back From Vacation (Photostory)
Rod, Danielle and the kids arrived back in Morristown yesterday. Rod has left to take Nicole home. As you can see, their home has been slightly redesigned since the move to the basement.
Danielle is having some breakfast and catching up with the girls.
She's having one of my faves, cottage cheese and pineapples. She did way too much eating on vacation, and plans to cut back for the next few weeks.
Jacob is playing with the new tricycle he got for Christmas. His little legs are too short to reach the pedals, yet.
Julian is playing with the Buzz Lightyear toy he got at DisneyWorld.
"Girl, we had a ball, but I'm glad to be back. (pause) Yes, my mom is doing good. She's anxious to come visit again. (long pause) Well, we thought we would all get together around noon. That will give me time to get myself together.
"Mommy, I want some juice.' (Jacob)
"One second, Jacob." (Danielle)
"Mommy, can we go outside and let Buzz fly?" (Julian)
"Julian, you need to say excuse me when you see me talking on the phone." (Danielle)
"Girl, let me get off this phone. I'm being summoned by the little ones. I'll see you in a couple hours." (Danielle)
"What's this, mommy?" (Julian)
"Cottage cheese and pineapples." (Danielle)
"I don't think I like cottage cheese." (Julian)
"I don't think you do either." (Danielle)
Meanwhile a couple houses down Antoinette is preparing an apple tart to take to Danielle's.
"Mmmm. Something smells good." (Tony)
"You need me to taste it now to make sure it's okay?" (Tony)
"Sorry honey. This is for the girls." (Antoinette)
"What girls? Our girls?" (Tony)
"No. Danielle, Leslie, and them." (Antoinette)
"You didn't make one for the house, too?" (Tony)
"No, I didn't. You are the one complaining that your pants are getting too tight. I'm just looking out for you." (Antoinette)
"Awww. That's cold." (Tony)
I've been wanting to make an apple tart for awhile. I can finally cross it off the list. It will be in the Etsy store by tomorrow.
I saw this picture in a cake magazine I was reading.
They called it a checkerboard cake.
I gave it a try. Made a few mistakes, so this one will go to my dolls. If I get around to doing one for the store, I'm going to call mine the Neopolitan cake. It reminds me of neopolitan ice cream. I'm feeling a little hungry now.
