Honoring Mimi {with Sheet Cake!}

SheetCake

In the last week, we have celebrated Ike’s birthday, Anna experienced her first funeral (that she will remember), and our family celebrated the life and legacy of a fierce and witty woman.

Ten Min Choc Sauce

I’m trying to ignore my children right now. They are running around me in circles, dealing with their bi-polar tendencies to love each other one minute and determined to destroy each other the next.
