My "Baby Boy" is 10!!!

Happy Birthday to my firstborn boy Cameron Mitchell... he is 10 years old!!! Where did that time go? I seriously just had him yesterday it seems!

We started off by letting him open his family gifts... he was pleasantly surprised to get a new Wii game, a DS game, a huge Nerf gun with extra darts, and of course... clothes (not so much fun, but very much needed!)


Then he started his "Discovery party"with a couple of friends who went with him to the Discovery Center of Idaho- they had a blast, especially with the welding machine- go figure.... boys+ fire= lots of fun and entertainement for hours! Thanks Dad for taking him and all the boys- the peace and quiet at our house was rather enjoyable for Madeline and I!

Meanwhile... I got busy working on our masterpiece- I must say, this is probably the coolest cake we've done- I say we, because this cake would not have happened if it weren't for Mitch ( the kids even all pitched in with the planets!) It was rather fun making it and we were very
pleased with the end results!
The Solar System ( no, the planet are not aligned correctly... the cake would have been 5 feet long if we did that... nor are they in order... come on people, it's a dang cool cake anyway!!!)
The planets are made of rice krispy treats and fondant- they were the most poplular of the all the kids! The cake is done in a VERY dark blue buttercream, and flecked with white food coloring to make it look like stars and constellations.
Eating was the best part! Vanilla and chocolate marble with a creamy fudge filling.... yummy!
Happy Birthday buddy... and if you ever ask me to do a cake this big again- you're in big trouble! ( Actually, I loved it... so ask away!)

WOW Carlie! That is awsome! What a lucky kid you have to have a mom like you!

What a lucky boy to have such a talented mom who can just whip up something like that! The picture where it was eaten made me sad. All that work, just to be devoured by 10 year-olds. :) Looks like the presents were a hit too. I can't believe you have a 10 year-old!

You are amazing Carlie! What a cool cake!

I think the last time I saw you was right after I had my son (who is about to turn 8) and you came over to my apartment and you were potty training this "baby boy" of yours! It's amazing how fast time goes!
