I really like Mrs. C.’s quote on her blog, “The days are long, but the years are short.” It rings so true with me right now. I feel like, “Will they ever do things by themselves?” Then I turn around and my son is 5 years old.
This is the cake I put together last minute. Please keep in mind that I’m not a cake decorator, never had a class, don’t have any of the tools, etc. It’s just since I’ve had kids I wanted to make their cakes a little special so I’ve done some simple things with cakes.
There is a story about the candles.
I bought them from a clearance table in ’06. I was going to use them for his 4th birthday because there were 4 trucks. Then I forgot about them. In the early months of ’07 I found where I hid them and moved them out to the kitchen cupboard. During the moving of the truck candles the kids saw them and Joey loved them. Since then he has seen them a couple times and was eagerly awaiting his cake with trucks on.
When we asked what kind of cake he wanted he replied, “One with trucks on.” “Yes, we know; but what flavor.” “The kind with trucks on.” “You will have the trucks on it. Do you want chocolate or yellow?” “Chocolate. . . with trucks on.”
