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”!

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.
