TubaDad celebrated a big one with Mexican food for dinner last night, a handyman who rebuilt his precious tv cabinet, and then breakfast in bed this morn. Breakfast was a tasty little choc-chip bundt cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes – have you tried that place? That cream-cheese deliciousness is the only cake icing our crazy girls will actually eat. Seriously. With any other cake, Ro and Ree sit there and meticulously separate baked good from icing, consuming every crumb of cake while leaving fluffy piles of untouched icing in their wakes. (I, on the other hand, could eat just icing and skip most cakes, so we make a good team, heh). Equine cake decorating was courtesy of Ro and Ree and their fave dollar store. They just adore that place. (Well who doesn’t?)
Can you tell who’s who? Folks who have known them a while will recognize the eyebrow tip off:
Watching their new fave show “Sofia the First.” Have your kids seen it?:
It’s getting to be a tight fit, but the little pink car still logs regular laps around the backyard (along with a scruffy fleet of bikes, scooters, Plasmacars, and rollerskates):
Since TubaDad is only one day older than me, that means my bday is tomorrow. Forty five for us this year – kind of sobering thinking that we’re probably at the halfway point now (or past it...). I’m celebrating with a massage in the morning and then we’re all going out for a family fondue dinner in the evening.
