It was my youngest son's 9th birthday yesterday. He had a party last week, so yesterday was relatively quiet. They skiied all day and then came home to a raclette meal. For those of you who aren't familiar with raclette, it's a swiss cheese. You slice it up and each person grills their own cheese which they then eat with potatoes, fresh bread, ham..whatever you like. It's very social and lots of fun and the boys love it.
I made an ice cream cake by using vanilla and chocolate icecream and throwing in some crushed Skor bars and Malteasers. What a sugar fix! No junk food for me for the rest of this week. I love the candles I put in the cake. Can't remember where I bought them but they're so lovely and bright and burn for ages.
