Not goodbye just see you later

The Lord took my daddy home yesterday morning. After a hard fight with brain cancer that was stealing his mind he had a stroke Friday afternoon that took his voice and use of his right side. I am so happy he is now home and back with my mother. It was a long hard road but I am so glad I got to spend this time with him. Not goodbye just see you later Daddy.

Pancake contest

My brother is having a pancake contest tomorrow.... well I don't do pancakes but I do cakes. It looks a little burned in the photo but in real life it's so cute. I made my favorite rum cake and poured rum syrup between the layers then I made a sauce from sugar and rum and colored it to look like maple syrup.
