Home life has slowed down a bit, but it's still moving along. Last night, I had time to play with Cullen in the back yard and read my book. I can't remember the last time both of those happened in one night! If I keep it up, I might actually finish one of the FIVE books I'm reading.
Over the weekend, we celebrated my mom's birthday. She made a special request for a specific birthday cake, so I stayed up late Friday night getting it together. One of the best parts of this cake was the layer of fresh whipped cream between the layers. Cullen loves "helping" in the kitchen, and this was such an easy project to let him be a part of. He was even able to pour the sugar and whipping cream into the mixer. I don't trust him with the glass bottle of vanilla yet, but we're getting there. Heck. I hardly trust myself with the glass bottle.
Usually, Cullen is really good about not actually touching the food, but I let him try it out this time. For once, I was making something that didn't have raw egg or meat and wasn't piping hot. I let Cullen clean off the mixer attachment, and we learned that Cullen loves fresh whipped cream. The little things are so much fun to share!
