Celebrate good times

Here’s how we celebrated Win’s 5th birthday.  The kids and I made this Titanic cake.  I think that it turned out pretty recognizable.  We wanted to put little windows on the white deck area.  We came up with a method of scraping away white frosting to reveal the chocolate frosting underneath.  The kids came up with a method of easily cleaning the stick between swiping each window.Win really enjoyed reading the Magictree house book series.  I asked his what he wanted for his birthday.  He quickly said, “a notebook and pencil, like Jack from the magic treehouse.”  SO a notebook and pencil it is.  In the color green, his favorite.  And I threw in some magnetic bookmarks with baby animals on them and a five dollar bill.  This morning, about 10 minutes after he woke up I found him crouched in a corner penciling some sort of scrawl into his notebook.  It seemed to be a hit.
Dale got in on the party atmosphere.

We blow out candles as a team on our family.  Love ya Win!
