(Sorry... not sure what came over me! :)
Maybe it's because I've heard that nonstop the past couple of weeks!)
Braeden has become very interested in Thundercats after his discovery of them recently. I had no clue they were even on (and maybe they aren't?) - we don't have cable and rely on netflix and hulu - but they have the toys in the stores now so who knows?
Anyway, the kids don't have big parties for their birthdays. They're given parties at ages 5, 10, and 16 but that's about it. Otherwise we do some family activity usually and have cake and ice cream; often with my good friend T who also happens to be the mom of Braeden's bio brother J and sister L.
This year was no exception and since Braeden wanted a Thundercats cake,
and since stores don't carry that as an option,
I MADE their cake this year! :)
It was an ice cream cake with vanilla cake on the bottom,
a layer of birthday cake ice cream in the middle,
and frosting on the top.
And it turned out YUMMY!
Liam couldn't quite figure out how best to eat it.
They were blessed to receive a couple special gifts each and were very excited.
Liam KINDA looks up to J - in a BIG way! :)
Love how his eyes just LIGHT up around him!
