Colin's Birthday

I know I mentioned Colin's birthday in my last blog, but I wanted to share a little more about his birthday.
We planned your typical backyard BBQ party for his birthday, only it was raining so that meant that I BBQ'd in the rain and Colin and his parents worked on Ian's clubhouse in the rain. It did seem appropriate as it had been pouring down rain when they set it up.
We had purchased Colin's birthday cake earlier that morning. I know, I know, not homemade birthday cake??? Let's just say there wasn't enough time in our busy schedule to make a homemade cake. I know Colin would have liked one.
Shortly before everyone arrived I realized that I didn't know where any birthday candles were. I went into deep search mode, but the only candle I discovered was the number 6 candle from Ian's birthday party in April. I am of the mind that you must have a candle to blow out on your birthday cake. How could you make a wish otherwise?? So when it came time for my 34 yr.old husband to blow out his candles, he blew out a number 6! I do have the pictures to prove it!

Hee-hee! Happy sixth birthday, Colin; now you can re-live your childhood. :-)

I have a birthday cake story to share: For Kimmie's birthday this year, we had a big party (remember my blog about it). Beforehand, we were planning, and I asked her what kind of cake she would like, thinking chocolate, vanilla, etc.

She told me that she wanted a real cake. Well, I drew my shoulders up straighter and informed her that we ALWAYS have real cakes at our house. No sissy store-bought cakes for my family, no sir! "Don't you remember the cake that I made for your birthday last year?" I questioned.

"Yeah," she responded, "That's what I'm talking about. I want a real cake, not a fake one."

It turns out that to her, a real cake is a store-bought one, and a fake cake is one that is homemade!
