Got a little extra sleep this morning as #1 son is taking today off to help his in-laws move some things around at their place so he took g-son to school.
The overnight rain left another 1/2" of rain in the gauge this morning and the brisk wind is blowing the colder air into our area.
After chores I baked the last 12 caramel cakes for the large order then iced the 12 I baked last night before taking a lunch break.  After lunch I iced 6 more caramel cakes before picking up g-son.
As I drove down the drive way I noticed all these ducks around our flooded farm pond as the warm sunshine sparkles off the water.

We hurried home to get something for him to eat before heading out to daughter's basketball game.
They are playing cross county rival East High tonight. Daughter never sits down during the entire game she is giving instructions to the girls on the floor.

There is an extra "man" on the bench ???
He has a concerned look, "you really think that plan will work"  ???
They won the game but it was definitely an ugly struggle.
D-in-love and Rebekah with little Evy made it to the JV boys game. Evy did great and was awed by all the action and noise.

The JV boys won also .
The varsity girls were getting their last minute instructions.
Evy made it all the way to half time in this game before she pooped out. D-in-love,g-son and I stayed for the whole game which we also won.
I made it home at 8:00 and iced the last 6 caramel cakes,whew I am finished with the 100 cake order and will be delivering these 40 cakes in the morning.
I am already getting calls from folks who want to know where they can buy more of these cakes.
Tomorrow is going to be another very busy day so I am headed to bed a little early tonight.The colder air has definitely arrived tonight as it is 31 now at 10:30  with 23 the predicted low for the night,brrr.
Grateful to God tonight for the strength He gives me each day and all the wonderful blessings but most of all for the birth of His only Son who would save us from all our sins.
Good Night and God Bless.

You are a busy little bee. Glad the girls won their game and that you cake order is finished. Hopefully you get a lot more orders for your cakes - extra money is always helpful. Blessings
