Happy Birthday H!

Boy am I late on this post! So late we've left his birthday month behind us and wondered into the end of M and my birthday month.. For now let's just pretend it's still January for a moment, shall we?

What a way to start a year right? It was two years ago.. sitting in a Thai restaurant with our friends on New Year's night with the contractions began.. and 35 hours.. yes 35 hours later and 11 days early we welcomed H into the world..

We thought we'd celebrate with D and I getting together and baking him a cake..the last time D and I had baked a cake was when D turned 16 months. I would have enlisted H's help... but H is less predictable in the kitchen.. eek! I didn't want to make a giant cake for just the few of us. So instead I bought a cake mix and halved it.. and both store frosting as well.. I felt a bit bad not doing it from scratch.. but I sprained my ankle and I needed an easy solution..





yum yum!

and then with the leftover cake mix and frosting I baked again.. this time threw in some chocolate ice cream.. 




and more yum!
