Happy Birthday to My Boy

Today Max turned eight. Yes - EIGHT! How did that happen? Wasn't he just my tiny baby? Now he is tall and handsome and is able to go hang out with friends. He likes video games, reading, and drawing. Max is a caring and loving boy who really cares about his family and friends. I hope he doesn't grow up too quickly. He is a really great kid.

Easter Fun Day

First off I would like to make a point that this is NOT a cake blog...it may look like a cake blog, but I just love cake, make a lot of cake, and so it seems that way, but its not a cake blog. With that out of the way, this year I made a five-layer strawberry and lemonade cake with strawberry butter cream frosting for Easter. You can find the links to the recipes I used here for the Strawberry Cake and here for the Lemonade Cake. I made both recipes and then layered them together to get beautiful pink and yellow stripes. We also had amazing food for lunch with curried cauliflower, hash brown casserole, lamb, spinach salad, and caprese salad.
After eating way too much food it was time for the annual Egg Hunt - the Easter bunny always hides the eggs at Clare's house because he knows the kids will find them. Plus it's a good photo opportunity to get the kids all in one shot. Hope everyone had a good weekend and everyone here is looking forward to longer and warmer days to come.
