i've been obsessed with this martha stewart ruffle cake ever since i saw it on pinterest. i realized that with four boys i probably wouldn't be making this sweet, pink, ruffle of joy anytime soon.  however, i found a really good excuse ... my neighbor patty's birthday. ok, so i ran out of frosting and the 2nd batch wasn't quite the same but there's always next time.  it was good practice and i really had fun making it anyway. of course patty, my other neighbor lynda and the boys loved it! happy birthday patty, we love you :)

but the fire is so delightful, and since we've no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!  i haven't had a chance to come up for air in about a month or so. we're still in the midst of designing christmas cards, last minute shoots and client orders but the weekends are for the family. we finally went and cut down our christmas tree! we do it every year and the boys just love it! there's nothing like the smell of a real tree in the house and i even have a hard time buying artificial wreaths. it's kinda like fresh flowers, i just love how organic, fresh and wonderful they smell and feel. it's been a delightful snowy sunday. we've been making gingerbread houses, trimming the tree, on-line shopping, watching christmas movies and all the while the snow has been falling while we cuddle up by the fire. tomorrow starts another busy week and i hope to take it one day at a time and enjoy all the blessing we have this holiday season. happy holidays :)

working on my christmas cards...

i made some yummy santa claus pancakes for breakfast...

my 8 year olds gingerbread house...
