Madeline's 6th Birthday...Darn Cake Again...

Madeline's 6th birthday was July 10th but last night was the first time we could all get together to celebrate at my place. Austin was at a camp trip so unfortunately he was unable to be with us. Here is the birthday Princess and me...


Here were are having a "picnic" indoors with sloppy joes, corn, salad and double baked potatoes.

Madeline is blowing out the candles on her cake.

Remember the story of Marc's birthday cake on June 30th? and how we "waffed and waffed"?

Well I baked Madeline's cake and greased the pans with "I can't believe its not butter"...now...I DID not know it would make the cake stick to my teflon pan and that I would have to use a cake lifter to "pry" it out..and try to put pieces and crumbs together and slather it with icing. I did NOT "waff" this time. It looked not too bad...but slicing "pieces" gave away my secret...*lol*.

Here is Madeline with her daddy (my eldest son Geoff).

Geoff, Madeline and Kiley.

My youngest son Richard. He is sitting here alone. I had a picture of him tossing Madeline around as usual but too much action it was blurry...


My mom was having a great time...(she'll be 81 in October)



I remember Madeline and I when she was just a little one...could it really have been 6 years?

Enjoy this day for they pass so quickly.... Judi xoxo

Your Mom is just lovely!!! Madeline is so adorable!!! My Donovan turns 6 also in December this year! Is Madeline starting Kindergarten also this year? Oh, no she probably started last year since her B-day is earlier in the year! Your cake always seems to make the rebound quite well! You have magic in you!!!

The days do pass so quickly, my oldest will be 15 on her next birthday! She is still my baby girl:)

Love the cake story! I think the cakes that crumble taste the best! That Madeline is too cute! My Alex will be 6 in September. I really don't like them growing up so fast!

Have a blessed day dear Judi! HUGS!
