More Birthday Fun!

I realized I never posted pictures of Jim and his FABULOUS birthday cake! Lia and I conspired for several days as to the type and flavor of cake Daddy might like. Lia was absolutely convinced that he would adore a Diego cake...because Daddy is a boy! Well, since I couldn't argue with the obvious, off we went to order a Diego cake that was chocolate AND vanilla. Once we reached the bakery, Lia momentarily waffled and thought for a few minutes that Daddy would absolutely LOVE a 3D Cinderella cake, but I was so proud that she really gave it some thought and came back to Diego (and not the one SHE liked best!). I am fairly certain that this was the first time the cake decorator was requested to pipe "Happy Birthday Daddy" on a Diego cake...she may still be shaking her head at that one!


We picked up the cake after school on Jim's birthday. Lia could not stand the long wait until Daddy got home to see his surprise. She was just beside herself with excitement. I finally called Jim and asked him to come home early!


We had a wonderful dinner topped off by a piece of the sweetest cake I have ever eaten. It really was the stuff that Mom dreams are made of. Here is a picture of the birthday boy and his favorite girl!

See what I mean??? EVERY TIME I get the camera out....funny face time...

Not only is Diego a boy, but he is pretty hip! Saving all those animals and such, why he's a modern day Tarzan! So cute - what a sweet, sweet daughter, that precious Lia:)

Happy weekend,
Heather

NOW that is the sweetest cake ever made! I just know Daddy loved his special cake chosen by his girl!
Brought tears to my eyes because it reminds me of how Chelsi would want to get presents for her daddy ....things that she loved...thinking that he would them just as well....and you know what...HE DID! Now that's love...just like you have at your house! Aren't we blessed!!!

Cute! She must be growing up, if she can choose what Daddy would like most! So sweet. As for pictures, I am a tyrant. I stand there until my boys stop horsing around and smile. They now know that I will wait endlessly for them, and they just get it over with. Ironically, the "horsing around" photos are, of course, my favorites!
