Another reason why I love blogland

Wow - has it really been that long since I posted?  Yikes!!  I guess I need to get on the ball.  I am still in awe of the incredible  bloggers that post an amazing project everyday.  I think I want one of them to adopt me - or at least adopt my house!!

Since finishing the stairs I have been "catching up" on general household duties.  Like scrubbing all the walls - ok, I will be honest - scrubbing all the walls downstairs. I have not even thought about teenage land - upstairs - yet.  While scrubbing the walls I managed to touch up the paint on almost all of the walls.  There is one color that I ran out of.  So even though it is not really blog worthy - it is progress.

I also had grandson for the majority of the week-end.  What joy he brings!!!  You just cannot help but love that little guy.  But here is the thing.. at home he will entertain himself for hours.  Here - he is by my side every minute.  As far as he is concerned God placed me on earth for him.  Now I am not complaining - it is my current mission to make him the most spoiled grandson ever - but I get nothing done when he is here.

My youngest daughter sneaks through blogland once in a while and loves all the rainbow cakes out there.  So she decided that she and "booger-butt" as she calls him should make one while he was here.  She used this wonderful tutorial to make hers, but had to adapt it a bit.  I only had 4 cake pans.

yep - she turned a 4 year old loose with a mixer

yep -she gave the 4 year old full access to food coloring

But she had to have a little fun, too
She taught him to ice the cake with the whole knife - not just the tip.  Well, most of the time

And Voila!!!  Great cake and happy kids!!!  (oh - and unhappy kitchen!!)

I just love all the ideas you find in blogland.  This is such an easy thing to do, but I would have never thought of it.  And if you cannot tell from the picture - booger-butt was sooo pleased with his and his aunt's creation.

So.... Thank you bloggers!!

Happy DIY'ing!

  1. how much fun is that! xo,

  2. What a gorgeous boy! No wonder you want to spoil him to bits, I would too if he were my grandson.
    The cake looks fab and they look like they had great fun making it.
    I salute your braveness in letting a teenager and a toddler loose in your kitchen!

  3. Thank you both!!

    And yes Missy - it is a brave thing to turn my family loose in the kitchen. Last year all the kids were in the kitchen making Christmas goodies and oh my gosh!! I actually found chocolate on the sky light!!
