The temperatures around here are hot, hot and hotter. The air is so thick with humidity its hard to breath. Now that its officially summer its time to wear my shorts. Yippee! I get to see my knees peek out everyday, haven't seen them for a long time.
We celebrated Father's Day on Monday with a family dinner. Brother T was supposed to bring Scruffy along, I guess Scruffy over-slept and wasn't ready to leave on time. Brother T had emailed mom after he got to work to say Scruffy didn't make it. Oh well, maybe for the 4th of July.
So when Brother T walked in with two bears we were all surprised. One bear was Boston, he is now Brother T's backseat bear.
I heard mom ask T if he was bearbysitting? She knew Benzer's dad was out of town. The bigger question here... Do you really know what your bears may be up to when left behind?
Anyway, note to Benzer's dad...Benzer says Grr and Happy Belated Father's Day! It was nice to meet Benzer. We had a great time visiting. I think he made a special friend while he was here, her name is Winnie.Sure hope Reggie doesn't find out, because I think she's his girl.
We had a very good chicken dinner and then some delicious Ambrosia Cake that grandma made. She told me I could share the recipe. Again, my apologies, no picture, the people around here eat stuff so fast. The regular photographer can't even get the camera out and its gone!
- makes two 8" pans or one 9" x 13"
1 Ducan Hines Yellow Butter cake mix
11 oz. can Mandarin Oranges, juice and all
1/2 c. oil
8 oz. Cool Whip
20 oz. can crushed Pineapple, juice and all
1 small pkg. Vanilla Instant Pudding
Grease and flour two 8" cake pans. Mix cake mix, oranges (juice and all), eggs and oil. Pour into prepared pans. Bake at 350° until cake tests done. Cool a few minutes in the pan, remove layers from pans; cool completely. Split layers. Fold frosting ingredients together. Spread frosting between each layer and frost the cake. Refrigerate cake. (My grandma uses a cake comb when she frosts it, makes it look pretty.)
Dad and grandpa's presents didn't arrive till this morning. So I wrapped them, grandpa picked his up. I ordered them both books they wanted.
Dad will open his when he gets home from work.
Grr-bye for now,
