|My "Golden" Birthday~ 7 years ago!|
Of course, my son is sick and my daughter has dance class in the evening, so it won't be exactly what I would have hoped for. However, I like to believe that I have matured a bit over the years and I no longer expect January 31st to be all about ME! (but if you offer me cake, I won't turn you away...)
Every Thursday this month, I have been sharing some of my favorite things. One of my most favorite things is to plan birthday parties! I have thrown a birthday party for all of my kids every single year because of this! I love coming up with a theme and then carrying it out. Some of my friends have even let me plan their kid's parties and that has been an absolute blast!
So, today I am going to share some of my favorite cakes/cupcakes that I have made through the years. I don't share these because I am an amazing baker or cake decorator- I'm not! But one of my absolute favorite things on my birthday was the moment when my mom would put the cake that she had decorated in front of me and I would open my eyes and see her love for me on display. I loved her cakes and every party that I plan, I pray that I am showing my kids this same love and that they know how special they are to me and to their Daddy!
Here are some pictures of my favorite cakes...
