My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

It's Party Time!

Yesterday was Subvet (aka Daddy)'s birthday.

Sonshine INSISTED that we needed to make Daddy a birthday cake. Now, we have enough desserts in this house to start a war right now....but the boy was DETERMINED to bake a cake. As Subvet had a meeting last night, and I started work later than normal, I'd told the kids we could bake the cake while Daddy was off to his meeting.

As soon as I mentioned "cake" last night Sonshine goes through the house proclaiming, "All aboard! All aboard! For the Making Daddy's Birthday Cake Express!"

Next thing I hear is him opening the refrigerator saying "First we'll need TWENTY eggs!"


WHOOOOAAAA!! Slow that train down there buddy.



So I grabbed the box o mix and started walking the kids through the steps to bake the cake. Never to early to learn to read a recipie! (and learn that cakes do NOT need 20 eggs!)








Then it was decided Daddy must have candles on his cake. So I grabbed every candle we had.....








We'll just have to make sure Daddy blows them out FIVE times.....



The Making Daddy's Birthday Cake Express must have been one wild ride!

all 3 kids were SOUND ASLEEP by 9:30pm!
hooyah!




**Since Daddy didn't get home till 11pm we're gonna have Birthday Cake for Breakfast!!**
