Why go to the trouble?

I have figured out how to save myself and every other mother in the country a couple hours of work several times a year. Skip baking the cupcakes, and just serve the kids a dish of frosting with a spoon! Last night as I cleaned up from Frugalgirl1's birthday party, I threw away several cupcake stumps, naked of any frosting. And it was good cake, too, made from scratch!

I am back from vacation, and my digital camera is bursting with pictures to share! But, as usual, I am super busy, especially with the frugalkids being out of school for their short summer break from year-round school.

Highlights:

The Canadians are hilarious. Their road signs are so funny.

I finished my Sophie bag! I felted it last night. Next I'm going to cast on the Booga Bag.

Lemon Chicken passed away yesterday, so we are down to 6 hens.

As mentioned above, we had another birthday around here, with another cute cake.

more coming soon! (or later, depending on how busy I am)

Very cute, but I don't think I will ever learn to knit! I learned in Merrie Miss...

Happy Birthday! I can't believe you made a cake from scratch! You go girl!

We only have 5 more weeks of summer!

I think scratch cake is easier than cake mix, because you don't have to spend time driving to the store to buy one, LOL. You still have to crack eggs and measure oil and water, with a scratch cake you just measure flour, sugar, baking powder and salt too.
