Merry Holiday break!

Hello all --

Here are a few pics to get you through the holidays. Lyra and I will be away until after the new year, so there won't be any updates until after then.

Happy Sauce-day

Chocolate, Pudding and Pastry

I made this picture for Lyra's mother, who made me chocolate cream puffs for a birthday present.

The caption on the card was: "To say the least, Chocolate, Pudding and Pastry were alarmed by the implications of the recipe..."
