Happy Belated Turkey Day

This is LL's pastry masterpiece - a turkey cake! Her 3-year-old cousin was somewhat disappointed with Thanksgiving dinner, because when he was asked what he wanted he replied "turkey cake" and his mother put actual turkey on his plate first. And corn, and mashed potatoes too! He suffered through it though, and got a big slice of turkey tail for dessert.

We had a lovely time at the regional Irish dance championships, right up until the second round when LL twisted her sprained ankle again. Needless to say, she did not medal. As disappointing as that is, she has next year and the year after, etc etc etc, to make up for it. She will be taking it easy dance-wise and catching up with her neglected homework for the next month or so, and we can start all over again after the first of the year.

Now that I am not driving to dance class 5 days a week I will attempt to get my own neglected homework together - the blog and the Getting Loopy web site. If LL can catch up, so can I!
