Made with Love :: Another Birthday Cake for Mom!


This evening, after Math and Science lessons with the tutor, the children borrowed the camera and kicked me out of the kitchen so they could decorate another birthday cake for me, just like they did last year!  It was a full day for them so I baked the chocolate cake, whipped up some chocolate cream cheese frosting, and then had fun molding some fondant with my gorgeous new St. Cecilia mold (which my husband gave me for Christmas!!!) before they took over and did the rest.  I thought they did a beautiful job! I sure love this little family of mine!

  4. And we are hoping to get around to taking the Christmas tree down this weekend. . . It's been awhile since I've had a birthday with it still up!

  5. I was going to comment that it was nice to see your Christmas tree still up! Just this past Sunday in his homily, the priest said he hoped some people still did (have their tree)!

    1. We've taken the ornaments off, but it is still up! I love it when we are able to keep it up until the feast of the Baptism of the Lord! It does need to come down soon though, since it is starting to get pretty dry.
