What a great trip! I have a lot to share! This is a trip we have made several times and it is one of our favorite places to go. We always have such a great time visiting my husbands aunt, uncle, cousins and grandmother. Walnut Mississippi is a small town with a population of about 800. It's quiet, it's rural, it's peaceful, it's beautiful, and it's just what we needed. I will be posting this week about our adventures. My little one turned four while we were there and had the privilege of celebrating her birthday with great aunt, great uncle, and two of her great grandmothers! What a lucky little girl she is. She was tickled pink and spoiled rotten.
OK! About this cake! It is a chocolate "Ding Dong" cake. It is absolutely the most evil thing ever put in front of me and I loved every morsel of it! Let's see if we can get Aunt "L" to be so kind as to share the recipe. This women is such a great cook! My husband and I gained 8lbs each in 9 days! That's right. 16lbs between the two of us! Just lovely! I'll let you know how long it takes me to take it off (like you care)I am typing this out loud to make sure these pounds do not linger.
These are just a few pictures of the wonderful family party that was thrown for her. It was so nice to spend a birthday with family. We don't get that very often since we are spread all over the country from each other. We also went to Arkansas and Had another party with her other great grandma (pictures to come). It's 11:43 and if I don't go to bed I will not be a very kind person tomorrow.
