11:05 am: A Day Around the House

The Princess is still asleep, maybe because I told her she had to do something other than just go downstairs today. Juss and Orville tried to play on the Wii, but Juss threw such a terrible fit for so long that I had to go down, turn it off, and hold him and pray for a while.

After that, Juss asked to make pudding. I found some. So Juss made a pudding and Orville made a Jell-O. Then, Ro wanted to make a pudding, but I didn’t have enough milk…so I made Orville get dressed and go get some from Jen, which he did.

So, Ro and I made pudding, too. Ro is an excellent stirrer–they’ve been cooking at school–he stirs very slowly and evenly without fussing.

Only now, he keeps calling out “My pudding!” when the pudding has to sit for a bit. I set the timer so he’ll know when its ready.

Cooking with children is so beneficial to them. I cooked with our son, as he was the oldest, and he eventually took over cooking for the family. Our daughter was never interested beyond pasta. Did we ever miss our son when he moved out!

My daughter cooks beautifully...strange Chinese dishes, but still. But Orville wouldn't even make a peanut butter sandwich for his brother...I need to work on that. ;-)

I've got Autumn signed up for decorating the birthday cake tonight. She has a much better hand and eye for that sort of thing than I do.

Though to be fair, I am frequently distracted!

Cake is just finished.
"Whimsical Buttercream Frosting" is awesome. It's actually part shortening/part butter ...but it's satiny, lovely and takes color well. Do you need particular colors? Not sure if I have black...

Here is the link to the frosting:
