The Season For...

I wasn't sure whether to write about our insane Birthday Season or the beginning of Baseball Season...  but since the only photos I have are birthday ones, you get that treat today.  As many of you know - (and those that don't obviously found this page by some nefarious means) - 85.7% of our families' birthdays are crammed into the Feb-April stretch.  This makes for some interesting scheduling, especially this year when Easter comes in-between the birthdays which are normally separated by 11 days.  All the same - a birthday calls for a special cake and some sort of celebration.  So - once again W celebrates on the road (sorry - those spring break birthdays are a bummer sometimes) and he let mom pick the cake theme - it seemed appropriate since the Horton movie was released on his Birthday (but we still haven't found time to see it!). With apologies to those who have already seen the Horton cake - now H's cake was a more modest endeavor - but fit nicely with her "cooking party" that will take place tomorrow here at the house (while Weston parties with friends out in the desert under Dad's supervision).Perhaps my next entry will be a warning against that sort of party... we'll see how it goes!  So that's 3 down and 3 to go (my own birthday cakes aren't fancy - seems kind of a waste to go all fancy for my own day... the kids did once, but that was a long argument about who got to put on what frosting etc... - it was cute, but pretty was not a word I would have applied to the situation as a whole!

Stay tuned for updates on the ever so exciting bottom of the 5th comeback baseball game!

What is a cooking party? It is pretty cool that you can write with frosting on cakes. The Horton cake looks great!

yeah - a cooking party involves sending a cute "recipe for fun" invitation, then spending days on end sewing little chef hats and aprons - then some more when you get 4 last minute RSVPs - and then letting the guests make their own homemade pizzas for lunch, play games with your wooden spoons and measuring cups, and then decorate their own little cakes to take home... we just finished a few hours ago - ask me another time if it was worth it:)

aaaahhh! They got their own aprons and chef hats? That makes my goody bags of tootsie rolls seem so inferior. That sounds like a fun and different idea though. Ethan's is next month and he just wants a Scooby-Doo one because Mitch had one. But I didn't love that party enough to recycle it 10 months later.

Wow Tonya- can you start making some aprons and hats so we can do that for Anika in August? I'm sure all of Haven's friends think you're the best mom ever.

Okay, so I'm usually lame and the people who come to the party get cake and ice cream and that's it. Unless it's a pizza party and then they get that too. I'm not much fun and figure they're lucky I'm throwing a party at all. Occasionally I make up a nice goody bag -- but not always. Am I mean?

Once again doing great things in your community. Can you teach us to make those aprons for our little "kitchen helpers"--could be the family craft this year?

A cooking party sounds fun!
