Pinning It Down!



This weeks Pinning It Down  is a Gingerbread Cake recipe. This was so easy to put together. Athena did it all herself. Although you see cocoa powder in the picture, it is not a chocolate cake. Only 1tsp.



The batter mixed up with just a wooden spoon, baked in about 35 minutes and made the house smell great!
She loved that she could do the whole thing herself. And just to give you a "behind the scenes" peek...

Yes, that is a her coyote tail which she has worn on a daily basis for 4 YEARS. She can even pin it on herself on occasion. And yes, those are her pajamas. A definite homeschooling benefit. Pajamas all day.
Every day. Next fall I am going to fill her drawers with pajamas and buy one or two outfits for city days! She goes through a lot of them. Who, I ask you, wears out the knee in pajamas? Athena does.

That tail is too funny. My son showed up in most of our pictures last week wearing his pajamas too. I love a good easy recipe! This one looks yummy.
