Jamo's birthday

We just did a little celebration for Jamo's birthday. Brad always works late on Mondays, so we just did presents, cake and ice cream. Probably the big party will be later on when we celebrate his baptism next week.

I have made a new tradition for birthday cakes. The kids get to do their own. I don't like decorating and they do. Plus, I don't have to feel bad if they don't turn out nice. Win win! So, here is Jamo's cake this year:



He loved decorating his own cake! I loved not feeling the pressure!

The slide of his birthday and his super handsome 8 yr pictures are over on Cookie. There is a sneak peek on Danica's amazing site.

He did a great job! That's what I'm doing today. Baking cakes! I can't believe how big he is!

You're brave. When I allow kids to ice or decorate cookies/cake, esp. with sprinkles, I lay out newspaper first. When they're done, I roll it up and toss. No child can clean up sprinkles without making them worse. He is simply adorable. Totally adorable.
