A certain someone is turning


6


She came in our room at 7 am sweetly wondering if we forgot to bring her birthday doughnut in bed.

We did not forget.  We were sleeping:)

She got back in bed.  We got things ready...

Dave did a funny little dance for Kate. It made her laugh!  I might have been laughing too as I snapped this:)

Then we decided to bake this cake....

In our jammies and with bed head---the best way to bake....

Kate is a great little baker.  She can really do it all...butter and flour the pans, measure and pour ingredients and beat the cake.  She even adds the eggs in minus any shell.

Kate wants to go bowling and have real spaghetti (not gluten free but I will stick to gluten free for just me) and meatballs and sausage with my homemade sauce for dinner.

More to come....

P.S. The cake just came out of the oven and it smells like heaven!
