we all had a wonderful weekend here! jasper was able to spend the 3 day weekend with her neena and we were able to go out each night and be non-parental! girls night (sorry, jon) and date night all wrapped into one weekend – nice!
but what was even better than that?
jasper coming home… and then she and i assembled the jon-requested cake together while licking the spoon way too many times…
jon asked for a “triple layer, baked-from-scratch yellow cake with ganache frosting”...
seriously. i guess he decided not to make it too easy on me 🙂
he got 4 layers instead but he wasn’t complaining!
besides his cake, he had a very exuberant girl singing the happy birthday song to “the birthday daddy”!
jon gets ready for the Big Blowout.
and he does it! although by the time i finished taking pictures, there was some serious candle wax puddling on top of the cake!
“mama, don’t make my piece too small! i’m 6 years old now!” followed by “i bet there are 5500 calories in this cake!”
you ain’t kidding.
yeah, those are calories we are looking at…
arnetta, i wanted you to see what the cake was in – remember this?
happy birthday, jon!
may there be slobbery kisses, tickle fights and some sweet lovin’ in your near future…
