let them eat cake

This is the cake I made for Thanksgiving dinner. Chocolate pumpkin cake with creamcheese icing. mmm

Yukon trip

As many of you know, I took Hunter up north to visit my Mom in Haines Junction, Yukon.Haines Junction is a tiny little town that doesn't have a whole heck of a lot to do. If you like camping, canoeing, hiking, and things of that nature then you would love it. It has huge mountains and a ton of untouched wilderness.
I have often thought it would be neat to live in a quaint little town with tree lined streets, slow pace, and friendly neighbors. However, I have come to the realization that I am a bit of a city slicker. While the charm of a small town still appeals, the ammenities of a bigger city, say twenty minutes away, also appeals.
Usually when I visit my Mom we go for a lot of walks, but not this time. This time there were two bears wandering around the neighborhood. One of them even went to a lady's house and pushed on the front door to try and get in. I conveniently had a small baby who needed protection. So instead we watched a lot of movies, did some crafts, and visited with a friend.
While we were driving we did see two Elk herds, a Buffalo herd, and a pack of wolves. Cool
