This weekend has been an absolute blur. Friday night present wrapping session with the Husband. Saturday night was our second annual Ugly Sweater Party and today, well today was The Husband’s birthday!
In a burst of insanity and inspiration I decided to bake him a cake from scratch… like real scratch… like not from a box!
It was SO MUCH FUN!
I baked while the kids made cards.
It came out great! A little dry but great.
I even made my own frosting!
I can honestly say this is the first time I’ve ever made a complete cake from absolute scratch!
I may make it a tradition.
We let The Husband sleep in and made him breakfast in bed.
He totally didn’t expect it.
The kids and I went downstairs to clean up. Well I cleaned, they had a light saber battle.
I will totally share that on GreenLiteBites asap!
After lunch was party time!
I put some candles in the shape of “39” and The Husband said, “Wow that’s a lot of candles.” To which The 3-Year-Old said, without skipping a beat, “That’s because you’re old, Daddy.”
Even The 9-Year-Old burst out laughing.
After much relaxing the boys and I went for a run.
The 3-Year-Old ran most of the mile even though we brought the carriage.
It. Was. AWESOME.
So much fun.
Then I headed out for some shopping.
I am officially wiped.
Oh! And I ate too many cookies.
Too many cookies.
That is all. :)
