Answer: Really really old!
In addition to the Thanksgiving preparation, we are in full 99th birthday mode. Banners, noise makers, a couple of silly gifts (as mom made us pinky swear not to get her real gifts).
We debated endlessly about the cake – to buy or to make. If make, what to make?
We settled on making two Number 9 shaped cakes. One white with chocolate frosting. The other chocolate with vanilla frosting. Then decorate them to the nines! 😀
Easy. Fun. Not fancy schmancy. It begs only one question- one candle per cake? I got cute 9-shaped candles but haven’t decided if I will use nines on nines. Could be too traumatic to see so many 9s!!
Raining today but I’m okay with that. Cooking. Moved our things upstairs already. Pulled up any hallway rugs in master bath as my mom didn’t want to worry about tripping.
The ingredient I could never find anywhere around here was rainbow carrots – not at gourmet market nor at my Korean market so the city kids said they’d for sure find some and bring it up. Yay!
I say we are as ready as ready can be.
