Look at this Face

Couldn't you just eat her up? She was so proud of herself. As a very special birthday present for me she cleaned and dusted her bedroom. I of course was thrilled. What mom does not love unprompted cleaning? I know i certainly do!
And this had to be shared...well shared in spirit! My friend and now neighbor was wonderful and made me a birthday cake...i am sure Chris was especially greateful. Ready for this, it was a chocolate carrot cake with chocolate buttercream frosting and topped with cream cheese icing. I know, and it was as decadent and rich as it looks. She was very sweet to do this. thanks friend, even though i know you are not reading this.

Avery..I'm proud of you too. Keep it up honey. I love you. Leslie, would that friend have blond hair and live around the bend? It looks like a cake I'd enjoy!!

I will have to show this one to Craig, so that he can plant ideas in Joshua's head come Apr 12th :) I will also have to show this to Craig because he loves carrot cake. (consider that me asking you to ask your new neighbor for the recipe sometime :)
