Like I said in the last post, this past week has been
busy HECTIC! But in a good way :) We've had dance class, swim lessons, Daddy's birthday, softball, a Thirty-one Party for a good friend, and that's all before Father's Day rolled around! WHEW! But we definitely didn't forget about Tim's birthday. Especially since his b-day was softball night and Thirty-one party night, we wanted to show him how happy we were he was born, so we did it BIG! On his birthday, we snuck to the store and got stuff to make him TWO birthday cakes! He'd requested carrot cake when we asked him what kind of cake he wanted for his birthday but we surprised him with cheese cake, too! (those are probably his two very favorites ever...)
Have you noticed yet that the kids like to help, especially when we're baking in the kitchen? I don't have pictures of them actually baking this time, but I have pictures of them helping me "clean up"
I remember when my Grandma Cleda used to let me lick the batter off the beaters when we were done, and it's still one of my favorite things to do when I bake. I thought I'd start a new tradition with the kids- I think they like it :)
