Before I begin my post, I want to ask you all to go visit Michael Manning and read about his little friend Gunner who is in hopital with some severe effects from his brain tumor. This little guy and his family need all the prayers and positive thoughts he can get.
It was 85 degrees in this house this afternoon. It was a beautiful sunny day. Perfect weather to keep the oven OFF!
But we had said we would celebrate Kayla's birthday with a cake for her, and so we did. Actually, the house was already so warm, that the oven didn't make it that much warmer.
Heidi made the cake and Lexi decorated it. They lit candles and Lexi grabbed Kaylas photo off the wall so she could have a picture with her cake.
We sang Happy Birthday to Kayla and Lexi blew out the candles with help from a gentle breeze. We carried the cake inside to cut and one of the candles relit! We all had a laugh at that, saying Kayla was up to tricks!
I had a bit of a lump in my throat as we started to sing. But seeing the smiles on the kids faces made it obvious that this was a really good idea.
Fat ladies who wear orange dresses should not be eating cake really, but this was a special occasion!
