*UPDATED* Go Shorty, It's Ya Birthday...

Speaking of birthdays.... I can hardly believe it, but Youngest's 1st birthday is on Monday. Where did the time go? Hubby commented that she was definitely growing up this morning when she bent her arm so that she could put it in the sleeve of her shirt this morning while he was getting her dressed. She knows what to do! Oh how I'll miss the days of her lying calm and still as I was getting her dressed! (Remember those?)

This weekend promises to be bunches of fun. Grandma D and Auntie L are flying in today for Youngest's birthday party and baby dedication. This year, instead of ordering a birthday cake like I normally do, we are taking on the challenge of making our own cake with the professional guidance of M-Diddy. [Who?] Take a close look at the picture of what the cake is supposed to look like...




I'll put up our creation this weekend and you can tell me how we did. I'm a glutton for punishment.

Omigoodnes, my baby's all grown up. Well, ok, not really.
But she's ONE!!

* Alrighty, here we go....check out the cake that my mom so lovingly made (I helped!) and it tasted delicious too - she even had suggestions that she sell her butter icing. The trickiest part was to try to make all of the "blocks" level - it's harder than you might think! And we used homemade icing instead of fondant so our cake wasn't as neat as Martha's, but all in all we did good!!

Ha, Ha! Yes, I was just commenting on how I don't know your daughter. That makes me sad :( I want our daughters to spend their summers together, become friends, go to the same college, or at least visit each other during spring break, and continue with our fabulous legacy :))
