But first, look at the cake Hope decorated last night at the church's Activity Night! Her great-grandmother would be so proud; we certainly are. Many thanks to fondant genius Shona for making this activity possible.

Here are some talks Daniel and I have had in the past few days:
Me: Daniel, what do you think Santa will bring you?
Daniel: A green candy cane!
Me: Anything else?
Daniel: Umm...a red candy cane?
***
Daniel: Mom, can we make some dangerbread cookies?
Me: Do you mean gingerbread cookies?
Daniel (enunciating carefully): No, Mom. Dangerbread.
Me: Uh, sure, honey.
***
Daniel (looking at a Nativity picture book): There's Baby Jesus.
Me: That's right.
Daniel: Is that Elizabeth?
Me: No, that's her cousin, Mary.
Daniel (closing the book): The. End. Mom, is that heavenly ever after?
Me (misting over): Yes, sweetie. It is.

I like to eat Dangerbread while listening to Kenny Loggins singing that "Danger Zone" song. Very stimulating.

Great cake, I'm impressed. Fondant is not an easy animal to work with.

And your son . . . aaaahhhhhhhh.

A great looking cake. I am impressed. I have not ventured into working with fondant.

Your Daniel stories are very sweet. I love when they come up with things like that. I only wish I were blogging back when my kids said sweet things so I would have them recorded. I love the his great expectations, his desire to live life on the edge, and the heavenly innocence he displays.

Heavenly Ever After sounds like a great book title--or movie title. Go for it, Daniel. Help your mom write it :-)
