Char-Char Birthday Dude

Charlie has picked up a couple of unfortunate nick-names from his sisters, including "Char-Char" and "The Boy." It's never a good day when your baby turns one! And my camera batteries were dying so I only have a few grainy pictures. We went really simple for his first birthday, I guess that's what happens when you're the fourth baby to turn one in your family. And your mom is suffering from allergies. (he is too, poor thing!) Luckily some cousins showed up just in time for cake so when he grows up and sees pictures he will assume he actually had a party!I made the puppy cake from Family Fun in about 5 minutes but the kids seemed pretty happy with it. We were limited to the decorating supplies that our Walmart Market had, since I ran to the store while the cake was in the oven. Miss E didn't think the cake was big enough.

I can't believe I'm showing the picture of it! I tried desperately to crop out my messy kitchen.

I think it's cute! Way better than I could do in 5 minutes.

The Boy is the funniest nickname. He needs a brother :)

i always wanted to make a cake like that. my creativity and baking skills together are not a good combo. i'm comin to you for Gracie's 4th birthday, if that's ok.

when i was little, my grandma would let me pick out my favorite animal and she would make me a cake shaped like it. it was my favorite. i only wish i could do the same!
