Fathers Day

This week we celebrated Fathers Day. I actually tried to make it really great but messed up in a few areas. I planned way in advance what I wanted to get for Jake from Leidy and me. We went to the mall and shopped online and finally found what we were looking for on Ebay. I order really long basket ball shorts. They didn’t even ship till the Friday before. When it finally did ship I noticed that the address was to our old house. I've left a note on the door of our old house but here we are the Thursday after Fathers day and still no shorts. We had planned to go to the Smiths for a treat on Sunday night so the night before I attempted to bake two poppy seed cakes from a cupcake mix. I got the recipe from Oma Seethaler. In typical Manon style, they sunk totally flat in the middle. I was so ticked because I had fallowed the baking directions perfectly. (only to the cupcake specifications, which by the way does not work ok for cake style baking.) I tried to salvage them by cutting out the middle and just using the edges. When Jake got back from his meetings on I had prepared pancakes and bacon, only the bacon was burnt and I accidently poured too much cinnamon in the batter. Too much so that Jake smelled like cinnamon all day. But all in all we had a decent Fathers Day with the all the dads in our family.

I thought I'd better post a comment after admitting to snooping on your blog. It is actually comforting to read about your cupcakes, pancakes and bacon (I can relate). You guys are so talented; I don't know how you do it all. It is fun to read about your lives and I love all of your different sites. We miss Jake's visits each month...
