Mini Ice Cream Cone Cake Bites

Ever since Bakerella introduced me to the wonderful world of cake bites, I have made them a handful of times for several different occasions. Never have I been so happy with the outcome.

Some tiny treats for Ollie's end of the year picnic.

C'mom, really?

I have received no fewer than 6 email in the past week containing 'suggestions' for Father's Day gifts. They are all from the same company. Yep, ProFlowers. They contain phrases like "40% off father's Day Iris Bouquets" and "Get him what he REALLY wants!".

No offense, ProFlowers, but it is high time you fire your marketing department.

Cyd the snake charmer

So, there we were, playing in Cydney's backyard. The kids were having a great time and Cydney and I were visiting when I saw something move out of the corner of my eye. I turned around and there was a HUGE snake coiled up next to the steps leading up to the deck. I freaked. I called all the kids to run inside and then started to usher them in, with me close behind. Then I turned, Cydney was as calm as I had ever seen her. She said, "There you are!" Then turned to me and said, "I have been trying to catch that snake for a week now...he keeps getting away from me." I thought, "Wow, this from the girl who can't kill a spider...that is amazing".

Anyway, she went ahead and caught the snake in a burlap sack and became the hero of little children and their mothers everywhere....at least that is the dream I remembered when I woke up this morning. Weird.
