Because life is a circus

We're going on day ten in the house. There's snow and ice and rain. There's an empty checking account. There's an empty stretch of day without any light. So today there was a Big Top Cupcake (thanks to Grandma who gave it to Javi for his birthday).

I dumped a box of Betty Crocker in a mixing bowl and added oil and water. Javi cracked the eggs.
Bella had the most fun of her life using the mixer.
And then we got creative. Those lumps are jumbo marshmallows.
In the oven for a while.
And then there was this.
I undercooked the top part, so I stuck it all back in the oven to hopefully benefit from the latent heat. We plan to frost it after dinner. The kids are certain it will taste like heaven. That's all that matters, right?

    Discipline? What's that?

    Seriously, though. That child is so evil I have to discipline her or she'll kill us all. She told me today, "I da WOLF an I gon ead you ALL GONE! Eben yo' FACE."

    Uh, okay. Time out?
