Sick Day

As usual on Saturday, we were all going to Beaver Mountain to go skiing. Pyper was really excited to get to go skiing, she and I stayed home last weekend.

But alas, my Buggy started in with a terrible cough and fever last night and I decided it was probably better if she wasn't out in the cold all day. (Last year she went skiing with strep throat. She didn't fess up that it was sore til the way home! I felt like a #1 parent THAT day!)

She loves to ski and was disappointed that she couldn't go. So she played the computer, and the 360, and had a nap in my bed. Since she loves to cook, we also decided to make some Red Velvet Cake Balls. They were so yummy. She did most of it all by herself! I helped her measure the water and oil, she cracked the eggs, and mixed, and dumped it in the pan, which she had greased and floured.

This is what they looked like when they were finished. I would invite you over for some, but we ate them--ALL! They were THAT good! We can't decide which we like better. These or Oreo Truffles.

We had a fun day, just the two of us. I don't get to spend time alone with her very often, so I really love it when I do! She is such a unique little individual with such a big personality! Thanks for the fun day Bug!

I think I am having another Birthday tomorrow and I need Lyra to make me some of these red velvet balls. Just don't tell anybody else so they will just be for me.
