Made with Love :: A Birthday Cake for Mom!


Last night my girls had so much fun shopping for a few supplies to decorate a cake for me this year, after I wasn't able to find a cake pan I was looking for at three different local stores... (More on that later!)  This morning the big boys borrowed my camera and the girls kicked me out of the kitchen!  Everyone helped while Bud napped and I had some quiet computer time with my cup of coffee. I just had to hop back online to share a few of the pictures I found on my camera, along with the completed cake and a picture of seven of my greatest blessings!

I'm very curious to find out what is inside the gift Sean left with the boys... They are making me wait until I have blown out my candles to open it! 
Pink Roses from Chiquita

A beautiful bouquet of flowers just arrived from Sean (I miss him so much!), we are headed to town for a few treats, and my Aunt Bridget is coming over in a couple hours to make dinner for us all!  I've closed the comments on the giveaway and will draw a name tonight or tomorrow morning, after I have had a chance to finish printing and cutting all the entries!  :)

  9. Thank you all!


    The boys helped with the cake too! According to the kids, the boys worked on the happy birthday on the front of the cake, and Snuggles and Rose helped sort all the sprinkle colors for the big kids! It was a group effort and they were very excited to show me when they were finished!

    1. Chiquita spotted the small bouquet of pink roses at the store last night for a few dollars and asked if I'd let "her" get them for me. I couldn't say no! Twinkle Toes also picked out a pink heart shaped box of chocolates (which I really shouldn't be eating) for me. They sure know what I love... Pink, Flowers, and Chocolate! They have been spoiling me, and I am loving it! :)

  12. Happy Birthday! So enjoyed the photos of the cake progress! I must say, though, that your Rose has the most priceless expressions on her face, no matter what is going on!

  14. They did an excellent job. I am sorry your husband is gone :( When my husband was deployed I made the most of it by enjoying all the things he dislikes. For example he turns his nose up to Jane Austen films - that's all I watched. He doesn't care for the pool- we went swimming three times a week. It's probably harder when you have to do school, I only had a two year old, three year old and one on the way.
