Me and my big brother. I was one year old and still didn't have much hair. Now, I have so much hair I pay to have it thinned. I pay to have some of the grey colored, too, but that doesn't count.
Me at three. If you look closely there is a bruise on my left cheek. A little boy in my preschool bit me and when my daddy heard that some little monster had bit his little princess, he found the little boy and bit him back (on the hand). I'm not sure what those teachers thought about that. In fact, it might have been my last day at that preschool. I'll have to ask my mom.

Sunday, February 8, 2009 Cora Paige went to be with Jesus. She was just 10 months old. I just can't imagine the heartache her family must feel. Please lift them up in prayer.
Please consider donating to Cora's Playground as well. You can follow the links above to find out more information.

CHOCOLATE CHOCOLATE CHIP CAKE
1 18.25-oz package chocolate cake mix (I use the Devil's Food from Duncan Hines)
1 3.9-oz package instant chocolate pudding mix
1 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup hot water
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celcius). Grease and flour a bundt pan. I love the Crisco spray (like Pam) that has flour in it.
2. Combine cake mix, pudding mix, oil, eggs, hot water, sour cream and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour batter into bundt pan.
3. Bake for 1 hour. Allow to cool for 10 minutes, then invert cake onto wire rack and let cool completely.
DARK CHOCOLATE GLAZE
4 oz semi-sweet dark chocolate (again, I like Ghirardelli's)
3 tbsp butter
1 tbsp milk
1 tbsp light corn syrup
1/4 tsp vanilla
In small, heavy saucepan or microwave oven on medium, melt broken chocolate with butter. Stir frequently until smooth. Remove from heat. Stir in milk, syrup and vanilla. When glaze is cool, pour onto cake. Let glaze run down sides. Chill about 10 minutes to set glaze.
