Tater's Birthday

Most of the blogs I have been reading with children have put out these beautiful letters to their children. They talk about all the fun things and hard times, about how much things have changed in a year.

I, on the other hand, have been busy starting my day at 8am with Speech Therapy for Tot. Running to the post office and store. Baking a cake and decorating it. Now mind you... it took me an hour and a half to decorate this cake. I just finished it and decided to take a few minutes to write this post for tomorrow morning.

I expect some snickering and out loud laughter. It does look like Tater decorated it. I'm new at this and have a new found respect for cake decorators. After working at this over an hour... this is what it looks like:

Now I have to finish cleaning the HUGE mess I made, wake the kids up and run to the doctor's office. Goodness knows how the night is going to go. I still refuse to publish this til' tomorrow. Start your engines... I'm off and running.

UPDATE: I have pictures from last night... just not enough time to get them uploaded. More as soon as I can!

Your cake is beautiful! Tara has only ever wanted the horrible Disney Princess or Barbie cakes, so the stores have always saved me the job.

VW, that's awesome! It has that rakish look that the avant-garde cake decorators in Manhattan spend hours working toward. [grin]

Actually, I really DO like it... very very cool! Cake decorating is no easy feat and you've done brilliantly. : )
