A New Day


This is the 3rd cake of 2009. It is, of course, an inauguration cake, complete with a Sculpey figure of our 44th president, Barack Obama.


We watched and cheered and cried and cheered and were awestruck and grateful.
We were with my parents.


Joy continued when, unexpectedly, a friend loaned Evie three more fitness balls for circus tricks. She bounced and balanced for the rest of the day.


Scott pointed out that he believed today was the first positive, global celebration since the moon landing. Joy exploded around the world today. The hard work is ahead. We, as global partners are up to the challenge. It is a new day, and the world is glad!
