Yeah, yeah.. you'll soon see why...
This was Lynn's day, yesterday. Putting up the "Happy Birthday" magnet...
Opening up "the one" present before school... this girl is a tween already. Merrill hates that I feed into it. But why would I buy her something that she's just not that into? So basically, it was a Hannah Montana birthday... Grandmas and Grandpas came for a couple of days (love ya Darlene!) to bring gifts, and this girl was in heaven! Aunts and uncles stopped by too.. all for her!She even wanted a guitar cake. Purple, just like Hannah Montana's... she cracks me up. She had every detail planned, the color of the cake, the first layer of frosting, the second layer, the guitar color, the swirls, which direction the swirls would go first, then second... I wasn't very happy with the cake, I haven't been with any that I have made lately... but here's where the bad mom award comes in...
Can you see what is off in this picture?
Just in case you didn't, here's a close-up:
In all of my shopping, no candles. Ashley told me to get some just the other day when we were getting groceries, but I said, "No, we don't need any. I have so many at home..."
And did I?
We were so in the moment, ready to sing and eat our cake that was not so cute... we didn't want to pause and go buy candles, we just stuck matches in the cake. Interesting, I know.
At least the cake tasted good! ( I have some for you Jacks...)
