Stuart and his 4th birthday.
This was the one for him, the first birthday that he got really excited about. Yet, he was sweet. When I teased him about his gift he was all amazed that we had one for him, and he gave me a hug and said, "Thanks Mom!" this was a few days before his birthday.
Stuart has not stopped playing with the crane since it was unwrapped this morning.
The gummy bananas were cracking me up.
Remind me next time, it does not matter how ugly the cake is, it's going to be fine.
A cut out cake or whatever you call these, they can really stress me out. There were crumbs in the icing and I was being kind of "I don't care" about the cake that was showing through. See, I was trying to get by with the icing that I had on hand, did not want to mix up more. Anyhow, in the midst of making a cake like this I am always sure it will be the ugliest one ever and I pity the child. I feel like I'm wasting time and destroying the kitchen. Every time. Then it turns out... I don't notice the skippers in the icing and whatever else I think was bad. And the children really don't notice. They just see candy.
