So with the big day at hand, we started on the cake. I insisted on using the "old mixer" and mom still doesn't know why it was so important to me. Halfway through making my cake, I suddenly realized I needed to call Grandpa Bud and Grandma Vineta to thank them for my Veggie Tales B'day card.
The old worn-out mixer worked beautifully and my spice cake was done. DJ helped us. You know, he's quite experienced and can run the mixer himself.
Of course, licking the beaters is the best part. Maybe this activity is why mom kept me in my pj's long after breakfast!
