4 eggs
1/2 cup water

2.Mix together the cake mix, 1/2 cup dark rum, eggs, 1/2 cup water, oil, and vanilla pudding mix. Pour batter over the nuts in the pan.

3.Bake for 1 hour. Cool, and invert cake on a serving plate. Prick the top of the cake.

4.To Make The Glaze: Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in 1/8 cup water and the 1/2 cup sugar. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove glaze from heat, and stir in 1/4 cup rum. Drizzle and smooth evenly over the top and sides.

Doesn't this sound awesome?  I still have some rum left over from the rum balls Aaron and I made way back when.  I never knew cooking with alcholic products could be so much fun!! 

My cousin Blenda had Ms. Kylie yesterday morning she weighed 8 pounds 6 oz and was 19 1/2 inches long.  She is a cutie!! Welcome to our crazy family!!

Tonight I also plan on straightening the house before Mr. C. gets home.  I need to put finishing touches on the craft room as well.  The week he is home I make sure to pick up and clean behind myself..the week he is gone it's like oh I will get to it later and let the house get messy.  I so need to get out of  that mindset!!

Guess I need to get off here and get some work done!  Have a totally awesome day! Thanks for stopping by and visiting with me today!
