Lily and her Papa having fun

Lily has so much fun with her Papa. She’s very lucky to have him and truth be told we’re lucky to have him because he keeps her entertained while we make dinner most nights among other reasons. I was making dinner the other day and heard Lily giggling her head off. She yelled for me to come and see so I did. This is what I found.

Lily made my birthday special

I turned 38 at the end of March. It was a Monday and Lily was none too pleased when she asked “what special things we were going to do for my birthday” and I told her “nothing until dinner. The rest of the day was going to be normal except for birthday creme brulee after lunch”. Oh No. Lily wasn’t having any of this. She wanted my birthday to be special, like I make her birthdays fun and special. She wouldn’t allow us to go to the library for her little art class even though I begged and pleaded. No way was I going to tell her why I love my Monday morning’s at the library, she gets to do art for about 30 minutes and I get to sit next to a usually sunny window and read my book in relative peace. Bliss. Nope, art is fun for her and we aren’t doing that on my birthday. Fine.

To help make my birthday special Lily decorated the house for me. She asked for the crape paper I keep in the closet and went to town. There was a string of crape paper here and there and a few other on the other wall. This one was my favorite though.

She also made me a wonderful birthday card and best of all a special birthday song and dance.

I made creme brulee for my birthday. I had never had it before, but always wanted to eat it and best of all make it. I mean I got to buy a torch for it. Best thing ever. The creme brulee was amazingly yummy and pretty easy to make.

We did our usual thing and went out to dinner for my birthday. We went to Flatbread Pizza Oven and it was so yummy. I thought I had taken a bunch few pictures, but couldn’t find them. Oh well, who really wants to see our amazing pizza and salad when you could see the pictures we took before we left the house?

Lily and her arm. Silly kid.

Lily insisted that we take a picture with Clarice so we went all out. She was taking the picture so we figured she got to pose us.


My birthday was very special because I spent it with the ones I love the most. I have no complaints.

My newest kick is making yogurt. I found a nice yogurt maker at a thrift store and my obsession started.
Since we don’t give Lil cow’s milk I started out making rice milk yogurt, that didn’t work so well. Next I tried almond milk yogurt, sill nope. So we decided to try cow’s milk. I mean we give her regular milk yogurt all the time, I just thought it’d be nice to cut out that one last bit of cow’s milk. I can’t be upset about this cool milk container though.

Here’s the milk cooling in the water bath.

The yogurt is still in the maker so I have no idea if it’s going to work or not.

Even though I posted a video of Lil enjoying her french toast I had to include this picture.

We made valentine’s day cookies this week.

Lil insisted that we have lips for valentine’s day. In order to get the lips I had to buy a set with a mustache and glasses. Lil loved them.

The Valentine Princess is busy at work icing cookies.

All the best Valentine Princesses have bunny tails.

Some of our finished cookies.

Waldo wanted a mustache cookie, I traded him for a picture. We decided that he’d make a great cartoon villain. 🙂

I made shampoo bars. And I love them. So far anyway.

Last Saturday was Waldo’s birthday. He wanted molten lava cake. I had a lot of fun researching recipes and figuring out what I wanted to make. Then we made a test recipe early last week just to make sure it was going to work out. Oh what a week. Let me tell you, molten lava cake rocks.

Lily loved the Lava cake too. We decided to forgo powered sugar on top and whipping cream and had mint brownie ice cream instead.

Lily’s very into dressing herself (when she does get dressed, when we are at home it’s pajamas all the time, which is fine with me) and doing it with style. This was her crazy outfit. Even the shoes don’t match. LOL.

We did some valentine’s stamping the other day. I carved a potato and was very impressed if I do say so myself.

She also stamped with the cut end of a celery bunch. The paint brush was her being silly.

This is Lily and Lucy Buttercup. Lily drew Lucy Buttercup and a robot.

Lily and Teacup. I think the drawing is Lily as a magician and Teacup has bows on her head and tail.

Yesterday morning I wanted to make bread and asked Lil to help me. She dumped some ingredients in and this is the dough after the first rise.

After she put in those few ingredients she wanted to draw. Works for me.

She loves to draw on foil with sharpies.

“A house full of family”

The baked bread. I don’t think any local bakers are going to be worried I’ll take their jobs, but it’s great bread.

Lil buttered some of the homemade bread for dinner.

As an aside, see my cute butter bell? It was a thrift store steal at $1.99. Yay!

Lil called me into the bedroom to see her little house. I can’t decide if Lemon Meringue pissed off the Godfather or if there’s some bestiality going on.

I apparently missed the section in the instruction on how to keep clean while you dyed pasta for crafts.

The other day Lil told me “Mom take a picture of just my eye”

Here’s some fun ice cube painting.

We get all kinds of dressed up to make pizza at our house. Or at least Lil does.

I’m not sure big on the selfie, but I liked my hair this day.

And this one was just for fun.

I don’t know who’s the better sport; Tiger or Papa. Either way Lil’s a lucky girl.

Kitty takes babysitting very seriously.
