What-What?! Week of December 18th

Snowed again yesterday, and then again today.  That's enough of that, don't you think? xP

We celebrated Corwin's 7th birthday yesterday!  It was alright.  We didn't really play any games, because Corwin would rather play with his gifts, and some friends had to go home early because they were sick.  So... could have gone better.  I didn't get any good pictures of him opening presents, because Corwin is just so wiggly.

Anyway, I made him a dragon cake:


Which he was thoroughly enamored with:


It was chocolate brownie with buttercream and a (failed) marshmallow fondant dragon.  I somehow botched the marshmallow fondant -- it wasn't the right consistency at all.  I tried solving the problem by adding more powdered sugar, but after messing with it for a while, it was obvious that I wasn't going to fix it easily.  So I just went with it.

Corwin is pretty excited by his presents -- he got a model tank and a model boat, some new Lego sets, an R/C truck, a Harry Potter T-shirt, and a Domino Rally set.  We already got out his model tank, and he's already had a miniature war with it, his army men, and his model fighter plane.  One of the Lego sets is a Batman one, and Saffron made a mini Gotham City to go along with it.

What-What?! Week of December 11th

They kept saying it was going to snow... and it didn't, and it didn't, and then...

IT DID! 
 
Not a ton, but enough to where I worked from home.  Ozzy and I took a break in the afternoon and made a miniature snowman family.



Other than that, we've been getting ready for Corwin's birthday and Christmas.  Got a tree up and decorated, and I spent part of last night rearranging presents to get them to (mostly, sorta) fit under the tree.  We bought a smaller tree this year than last, and it's a bit apparent. :P

Next weekend, we'll be celebrating Corwin's birthday, which I feel a bit bad about, because I have spent NO time at all on it.  He wants a Skyrim (like the video game) birthday, and I'm at a bit of a loss what to do for it.  Whatever I do, I'll post pictures next week.

What-What?! Week of December 4th

It's supposed to snow this week!

So, in preparation for this, we're stocking up on food, and getting our Chrismas tree... 'cuz, uh, that's important.

Other than that, not much going on.  Planning on replacing the back door on the house next weekend, which will be quite exciting.  After looking at the directions, we decided to do it ourselves.  Gotta put lights up on the house, too.

That's it for this week -- hopefully something more interesting for next week. :3

Art Thursday -- December 1st

"GANMO EXPLOSION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Corwin has absolutely covered our house in paper this week -- last week, he had very little interested in drawing or writing, but this week, that's all he's done.  This paper describes some Mech armament, including medium lasers, EER small bombs, medium pulse bombs and WHD death bombs.  I think the number of exclamation marks shows his enthusiasm. :P
