Magnifying Glass Cakes ~Photos~Take a Peek!

Friday, June 10, 2011

I finished this pair of magnifying glass cakes for my MOMS CLUB Birthday bash tomorrow! There are quite a few people coming so two cakes were needed for our bug-themed event!!! I got the idea from PARENTING.COM where there are quite EASY and CREATIVE birthday cakes shown & instructions how to do it! I was able through the help of my fellow moms to keep the costs down~ one mom donated the yellow cake mix and another donated the red jellybeans [as we couldn't use red almond M&MS b/c one of our kids is alleric to nuts]. For two 8" cakes ,the cost was $6.38 !!! [I had a frosting coupon!] . WOO HOO ~I am done! Note: The title of our celebration: MOMS BEE BUGGIN' OUT BIRTHDAY BASH~JUN.2011~

    The handles are 3 HoHos that are 'glued ' together with dark choc.frosting! [The recipe called for Yodels but do not have those available ,so I used HoHos by Hostess instead!]

Yesterday after church and brunch, our young son mentioned while we were on the floor building cabins with the Lincoln Logs~both Daddy & I!~ how much he enjoyed being a family~having Mommy and Daddy to play with and just BE WITH!!!!!!
As my hubby & I looked at each other , we acknowledged the ABSOLUTE JOY of parenting .loving our son with tears glistening in each other's eyes.
HOW GOOD IS GOD ~~GLORIFY AND PRAISE HIM ,ALL CREATURES!!!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon~~And on this Memorial Day~I want to THANK YOU to all military families and our soldier heroes that fight for our country's freedoms and for our freedoms~! I pray for each of you to be safe ~~!!!!! I salute all of YOUR COURAGE,HONOR AND VALOR~ especially the PARENTS of the soldiers fighting for us! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Those are definitely special moments. I don't hear it often from my son...he spends too much time pushing me away (adoption stuff) so I sure cherish the unexpected hug and "I love you" that comes by.

    I don't think there's a better way of being validated as a great parent than when it comes straight from the mouth of your child! That was wonderful, and I hope you write it down somewhere where you'll be able to find it when he's 17! emoticon emoticon

    Swimming with the kids and walking around the pond by our house. Not sure if we will get to do a lot of that this summer, the kids are playing basketball year round this year!

    Gardening, hiking, camping, birding, swimming, campfires in the backyard, ANYthing OUTside after being cooped up all winter in Northern Wisconsin. BTW, Betsy, what gardening zone are you? I'm between 3&4 and DREAM of 5-7; however, I might have to wait for heaven for these wonderful zones! emoticon
