Baking, Ducks and My Old Friend Margi!

As you know it's Birthday time in the Arnold household! Jeramy celebrates his 32nd Birthday next Sunday and Ella will celebrate her 1st Birthday in February. Me, being the busy mom/wife, is having a hard time deciding if I am going to buy cakes or be thrifty and make them! After searching allrecipes.com, I found a four star cake recipe and the cool thing was, I had all of the ingredients! So off to the kitchen I went... After whipping up the most beautiful batter I have ever seen, I'm talking silky smooth, I decide to make cupcakes. I place the papers in the pan and begin filling them. Evidently, cupcakes are not my for-tae! I guess I filled the muffin pans too high and after about 10 minutes of baking, the cupcakes were over flowing! And the spill over created little fires all over my oven!!! After I got the fire out and the burnt pieces scrapped up, I discovered my cupcakes were empty and looked like mini volcanos!

I guess I didn't get that Posch Baking gene.

I am going to try it again this weekend for my wonderful Hubby. I think he will be getting a cake! not cupcakes....

Jeramy, Keith and Lance (Keith's friend) all traveled to Missouri for some duck hunting. This was Jeramy's first duck hunt and he ws super excited! The temperatures were so cold they were not able to hunt very much, but onthe last day they were able to kill some birds.

Here is Keith and Jeramy and the ducks they killed!

Jeramy took off work yesterday to spend the day with Ella and I, since I was off for MLK Day. We had a very realxing morning and then headed to Tullahoma to do some Birthday shopping. After our shopping Jeramy took me out to Mexican and boy was it tasty. I even enjoyed a delicious Margi, that is Holly's name for Margarita!!! I could have had three, but I wouldn't have been able to walk out of there... We stuffed our face and enjoyed every bit of our night out!
Thanks sweetie :)
