Fourth of July

So my "white cake" dessert has become my go-to easy crowd pleasin' treat. It's simply box white cake, with a special whipped topping, and raspberry glazed fruit on top. This time I thought why not make it like a flag for the fourth? So this is my attempt, it proved difficult when the glaze started encroaching on the white stripes and there wasn't enough frosting for the stars (which were a total after thought) so yes I know, it doesn't have any stars. Rob says I don't support the union...

Aaaand I made a fruit tart...mmmmm. (PS-Let me know if you guys are interested in recipes).

Aaaand have the cutest baby in the world. I understand this is an excess of pictures that are quite similar but I couldn't help myself, they were all so adorable.

This is how books are dealt with in the Neilson house. You must first test the significance by tasting the book.

If it passes that test you should fiddle with it for a while and try to tear it apart.

Then, and only then...

do you commence to read.

We had such a fun day at Margaret's eating barbecue and watching fireworks. It was one of Elizabeth's latest nights out...and she was wiped.  All she needed was some quality snuggle time with Hugo and her day was complete. Thanks again Margaret and happy fourth!
