Leo's bakery

Leo has been asking to make these special cakes for a while. Homemade easy roll-out frosting over sponge cake. Yum!

Paul was gone this week so Leo and I took advantage of the opportunity to eat Japanese food. Lots and lots of soba noodles. And donburi (rice topped with teriyaki pork or tuna sashimi). Miso! etc. Leo talked me into taking him to the Domo Restaurant in Denver. It's homestyle Japanese food in a rustic setting. The tables and chairs are pieces of a giant tree. They have a zen garden outside. I think they teach Taiko drumming there too and have other cultural events. Needless to say, we had the time of our life stuffing our faces.

Leo's visit to NJ in December

Leo wrote a little story about visiting NJ in December. 

For those of you who can't read "kid", it says, "Over the break, I traveled to my grandparents' house. In Jersey. for my mom's sister's birthday party! The cake was awesome! After the cake my mom's other sister gave me a present. It was the mini musical claw. "Ding dong" it went! After that my mom gave my cousin a present! It was a static electricity wand that makes a 8 fly in the air. I love winter break! The End.

Reading at the dinner table

Yay! My dreams have been realized! Leo is reading a book silently to himself at the dinner table! I know I will regret this in a few years when he reads incessantly but in the meantime I will savor this!
