Little Miss’ Birthday

For whatever reason, our birthdays are clumped in the family. What’s slightly funny is that once this catchup post goes lives we’ll be approaching the next clump.

I’ll catch up eventually. 😉

Little Miss is up next in the rotation though. I think she was pleased with the day.

Yes, that’s 14 candles.

Then we snuck in a couple of parental poses.


And then priorities: pictures with big red, whether Big Red wanted them or not. :p



Something that’s become traditional for Little Miss’ birthdays is that we fry food. It started with her requesting onion rings and has evolved to basically everything goes in the fryer, especially when it manages to land on a weekend like it did this year.

The food didn’t stay on a plate very long but we were able to get this quick shot before the onion rings were gone.

Wintery Days

From what I’ve heard this was an especially wet and snowy winter.

The footage would certainly agree with that.

I did most of my shoveling the night before from this blizzard…

There was still some driveway to street shoveling required.

Once done there I noticed that a neighbor had tried to simply jump the pile the city likes to leave in front of everyone’s driveways.

Take it from personal experience, friend, you’re going to get stuck… and he did.

Shovel in hand I went over to help him out, trying to shoo Redflare back inside from the cold.

Instead, she took this of me helping him out.

On a cold day like this, coming home to warm pasties was especially fantastic.

Heart Food

At some point I missed the memo about if you see a heart in food you’re supposed to give it to your love.

Redflare saved this walnut for me as a loving gesture and then had to explain it since I was confused.

Yep, I kind of deflated the moment a bit. :p

I’ll know foe next time.

Zoo Snack

Naturally, they’re getting more than ketchup, but some of them, as I waited for their fry order snack to be ready, were licking from the ketchup containers like cats.

Superman almost looks like he took Redflare seriously. :p

But then the fries came, and they all rejoiced.

Warcraft Cookbook: Soft Banana Bread

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

From page 87 of the Warcraft Cookbook.

Something to keep in mind on this one is that there is a typo. It calls for vanilla but doesn’t say how much. Redflare reached out to the author on twitter and found out that it needs 1 TSP of vanilla.

It wasn’t as good as the recipe she usually uses but we did appreciate the added touch of the frosting.
