blue birthday

It's Carys's birthday month!  Blue is her favorite color, so I'm planning a blue birthday party.  This cake would be sure to delight (me, but maybe not so appreciated by a toddler).

One of my favorite things about interning at museums is having behind the scenes access to the collection not on display.  It's amazing to see all of the objects they care for.  Here's a peak at the Smithsonian's Natural History Museum's storage.

Not sure what this is, but I want one.

ha ha!... no.

I thought I might make a yule log this year for Christmas... until I read this recipe.  You have got to be kidding me.  Yule logs are no joke!
