Charlie’s 5th Birthday!

We all know that I am first and foremost a very sappy Mom….so I can’t help but share pictures of my kids from time to time!  This is an especially sappy weekend for me, since my sweet little boy, Charlie, turned 5 years old.  I can’t believe that he’s been brightening my life for a full 5 years now!

Every year Charlie puts in a request for some outrageous cake (usually with wheels) that I have no possibility of making super well (since I only do this once a year, it’s a very slow learning process!).  Each year I do my best to make his cake something really memorable though.  And the time lapse photos of him with each of his cakes make the whole process worth it.

He requested a fire truck for this year’s birthday!  How do you think I did!?

  9. omgosh, that is SO sweet! What a wonderful job you did!!! Happy Birthday, Charlie! 🙂

  10. I had to laugh out loud. One year my attempt was for a bootie for an upcoming baby shower. Cake got finished and was cooling. My husband suggested a movie. When we returned, the bootie had become a locomotive for a birthday party instead. My dog had jumped on the kitchen table and helped himself to part of the bootie. After looking it over, we decided it could be cut up and made into a locomotive. I haven’t thought about that in 25 years. Yours are gorgeous. I agree that creativity overflows from craft to craft. Thanks for the memories…yours and mine.
