I forgot...it was my son's bday last friday! The day we closed on the house! Since we were all so busy and stuff we couldn't throw a bday party for him, but my MIL made some delicious carne asada and we had dinner at her house to celebrate my son's 3rd bday and of course the new house. I made a small cake for him, here are the pics!
This pic was my son's idea! We took like 4 of these because that's how he wanted them LOL I love hiM!
He's into Thomas the engine tank
Cake was: 6 thins layer of yellow butter cake, chocolate pudding filling, thin layer of chocolate buttercream, covered in chocolate ganache. Like an easy version of a "Doberge" cake.
My hubby tends to love funny pics... he gave my son a butcher knife to cut his small 8 in cake!
And I have a funny man #2 in the house! lol, I swear he turned 3, I know he looks so big!
Love this next pics. 4 generations! My hubby's grandma, his mom, my hubby and son!
I was just thinking about you and all your great pictures of your desserts/baked goods! I started a cake decorating course this week and I am super excited to make my son's 1st bday cake in November. Welcome back and congrats on the new home!! 3206 days ago
I don't think your a bad mom at all... your pictures are fantastic and your son looks so happy!
BTW: Same thing happened to me when I was a kid. My birthday was also on the day my parents closed on their house... there was too much going on for them to do birthday as well, or who knows, maybe they forgot too!...but to me it was like the house was extra special for me because it was my birthday... we slept in our new rooms even though we didn't have furniture or anything moved yet... we grabbed blankets and pillows and camped out on the floors. To me it is still a stand out birthday!
