the birthday boy

Today my angel boy turns five! FIVE!
when the heck did that happen? He had an amazing day today. He came out with me to a party, played all day with the girls and had an amazing time. he behaved so well I could hardly believe it. then he looked at me with his sad face and asked where his cake was.
We had a cake for him and party on the 9th of the month since his memere was here. he was sad he wanted cake and presents today too. so we did. I was so happy he was aware and asked. he was so happy. God I love my children, my family, and I feel so blessed

a star wars cake?

birthdays here pose quite the conundrum. Sammy cannot have gluten, artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives and my dad cannot have chocolate. So what to do what to do. I decided Ice cream cake was a good idea. Carvel was out of the question since they have all sorts of bad stuff in it. So... I made an ice cream cake
strawberry ice cream, vanilla ice cream and sliced strawberry center. I coated it in whipped cream and froze it in stages. The next hurdle being how to decorate it
he wanted star wars... OK easy enough without coloring right... ummm
i found some action figures and made a fight scene he loved it
here's the cake
