April is our month full of Birthdays we have seven to be exact. This means a lot of phone calls and birthday cakes. Easter Sunday Adam and I got together with my parents to celebrate Easter and while we were there we celebrated all our Birthdays except for Adam who is later in the year. My mom made my favorite birthday cake. I grew up requesting it. It is a chocolate torte. I have requested this to be 4 layers in the past; it is a chocolate heavy cake with crushed almond in it with a chocolate ganache frosting. Very rich and very decadent. One layer is all you really need. Once a year is all you really need to eat this cake as it has a pound of butter and sugar in each layer.
As having the planting bug hit me early this season, I really want to get out in the yard and start planning flowers and take an early start this season. That came to a halt when it started to snow. Uh yeah got to love the weather guys when they say this storm could bring one to thirty inches of snow. Hmmmm I think they were right on as just about every where in the area received that much calculation for this past spring storm.
Last weekend our church had a Pine Wood Derby. Anything goes was the motto. We invited our neighbors to go with us, so during the week we got together to make our cars. I still need to get the pictures from the night at their house building the cars. We had all our tools out on their kitchen table trying to build our master pieces for the night. We had a lot of fun making the cars and we had even more fun racing them. As both our cars went 3 rounds before losing.This is Kalie, Ephraim their daughter Rachel and me introducing you to their awesome car.
