The kids arrived at 1:20 yesterday and had an easy drive over the 3 mountain passes, no snow. It should be the same going back.
I was busy up until around noon. Got the pumpkin pie made and the cake frosting made and then the frozen cake frosted. It is easier to frost frozen, that's for sure. My back was hurting quite a bit by noon, so I took a short nap.
The red velvet cake is really really good! Picky dh even liked it. Very moist and not like a box cake much at all. The cream cheese frosting was very good, as well.
She loved her gifts, especially the Highland cows puzzle. She sent a picture of it to her friend they went to Scotland with and her friend replied just as dd thought she would "oh that is a perfect gift! When you decide to start it can I come over to help you? I'll bring wine!" LOL. I also got her a book set of the Outlander book series she wants to read and a coffee mug that has her name and "World's best daughter" on it (an inside joke with her). From my mom (who I know would of course get her something if she could/remembered) I got her an Amazon gift card.
I think I'm ready for turkey cooking and eating today. My list sure has helped.
