My husband and I started dating on August 7th, 1971, and we married on August 6th, 1978. We are still happily together! Our daughter is grown, 35. She has 2 of her own, boys. 11 and 1. She has her hands full!!! We live about 5 minutes from each other. She works, and goes to school. My older grandson is in all sports! And my younger grandson is all over! She’s always busy :)!
I used to do everything, work, we owned a farm, I've worked and owned businesses all my life. I’m disabled now, I have lupus, fibromyalgia, and arthritis, among a lot of other things, but my attitude is still excellent! I've also lost a bunch of weight, after I'd gained a bunch of weight :); which was good for me, but I have to slow it down now. So, I want to start baking! and I want to start crocheting, and possibly knitting, again! There are so many cute things I can do now for my grandkids, and I’ll just get the cushions for the hooks and needles, I’ll be fine!!! I can’t wait to get started!
Los Angeles-based artist and baker Christine McConnell meticulously recreated her parents’ house using German chocolate cake, complete with flickering lights in the windows.
"The foundation of the house is made out of layer upon layer of German chocolate cake. McConnell then covered the base with piped buttercream frosting and melted chocolate—no fondant necessary. She constructed the windows out of frosted sugar glass so that light could shine through from the interior and light up the house."
