What a day

Saturday night it snowed, and snowed then snowed some more. When I got up Sunday morning I had a hard time opening the basement door to let Gibbs out. I had to go out and shovel a spot for him because he started out into the snow and turned around and wanted right back in.

Then it was get the car cleaned off and hope I could make it out of the driveway to go to work. The plows had gone by while I was out there and the snow was looking very deep. I got in, looked both ways and put my foot down on the gas until I was out on the road. I was very happy that it was a short drive to work. It was nasty out there.

Presley's birthday party was yesterday and they had asked me to make her a smash cake. Well the one I did was a little beyond a smash cake but we don't have small cakes or cake pans so I went with what I had. The theme for her party was "tea party" so I made a teacup from a icecream cone and the handle was part of a cooke



I wasn't sure if I was going to make it to her party. It started at 1 and I worked till 1:30. Then I had to go home, let Gibbs out and change. Also I wasn't sure if I would be able to get in my driveway. I thought I would have to shovel when I got home too. Thankfully my neighbor had been over with his snowblower and cleaned the driveway out for me.
I made it to her party just as she was enjoying her cake. My cell phone takes crappy pictures but here she is.


I promised Gibbs that I would stay home all day long today so no going out anywhere for me. Just as well, it's too cold out there any way.

It is 13 degrees here now! The cake is so beautiful! And it is so creative how you made the teacup!

Ann said...

I found the teacup idea on Pinterest.
I just looked at my phone and it says the current temp is 6 with a real fee of -9. The high is only supposed to be 17

Good neighbors! (16º here with winds gusting up to 44mph making it a 1º windchill...it never gets this cold here will probably set a record for coldest ever in local history!)

Ann said...

Thanks. I spent way more time on it than I should have but it was a slow day at work so I had the time

Ann said...

Thanks. I had fun coming up with that one.

Ann said...

I know, time sure does fly

Ann said...

It's a good day for staying inside so I'm glad to be hanging out at home too

Ann said...

Thanks. I was glad I got there too. I didn't stay long but at least I made an appearance

Ann said...

Yes, they are. They are keepers.
That low of a temp with gusting winds makes it even worse. It was really windy out there yesterday and it was killer.

Love the smash cake, it has been a tradition in my family since my first birthday.I would have came over and got that snow for you.

Connie said...

What a pretty cake for a tea party:) We have been truly blessed with very little snow this year . . . but then winter is not over.
Wishing you a lovely day.
Connie :)

It was about the same here. I haven't been out except to feed the birds and get the mail. I love her cake, and she is a cutie.

Hootin' Anni said...

...I remember those kinds of winters & I hated them. Now I complain about too much rain. Lol

She is so adorable. Love the theme AND the marvelous cake.

Jennifer said...

What a cute cake ! Happy birthday little one.

CheerfulMonk said...

Yuck about the weather, but I love the cake. Take care and try to stay warm!

Catherine - Mixed Media Artist said...

is this "what seems like" extra snow common? Or do you just forget about it until the season comes around again?....

Ann said...

Thanks. I'll pass the birthday wishes on to Presley

Ann said...

I agree on the weather Yuck...lol

Ann said...

Yes, the snow is pretty common. Around here you know that sooner or later we're going to get a whole lot of snow dumped on us.
