Happy Birthday to my Hubby de Lubby!

Today was Aaron's 29th birthday. He took the day off work and Caleb went to the babysitter so he really did get to "take the day off". He got lots done around the house and did some shopping with birthday money. We went to dinner at Texas Roadhouse shortly after I got off work (you have to go soooo early to not wait forever) then my parents joined us for cake, ice cream, and presents.

When I asked Aaron what sort of cake he wanted, I really meant like chocolate or carrot or maybe even funfetti :) But he came up with a crazy made-up cake with two layers so I went for it. I must say the most challenging part was trying to level the cake layers- not so great with spatial reasoning so I kept trimming a bit off on one side then trying to even it out on the other. Here's a picture of it: chocolate peanut butter double layer cake with chocolate peanut butter icing. Not too shabby for my first attempt at anything like this.

(You may be wondering why the 9 is so much bigger than the 2. I don't know. We've used the 2 for several years now and when I went to the Walmart I always go to, this was the kind of candle they had. Didn't realize until I put it on the cake tonight that it was so much bigger. Oh well.)

first off, happy late bday to the hubby! And that cake sounds dangerous! I did get a kick out of the 2 and the 9 sizes tho :)

So that cake sounds amazing. Definitely something your GL would like to try :) Speaking of peanut butter, for Lucy's birthday party tomorrow I'm making a Peanut Butter-Carrot cake! I got it off a dog-recipe website and I'm anxious to see how everyone likes it. Both humans and dogs can eat it so I thought it was an appropriate dessert. I also got a big 2 candle from Walmart-- it's really cute, it is purple/pink polka dots!
Caleb's videos and pics just keep getting better and better! I especially loved the picture of him and Aaron reading and I LOVED the video of Aaron trying to wake him up! Hilarious! Please put more of you!! I only hear your voice and I want to SEE you. So post some mommy-caleb play time asap.
I love you!
