It's the little things that can take your family life from ordinary to fun.
From a nice place to a wonderful home.
After attending the Power of Mom's Couple Retreat, Eric and I were inspired to start a new family tradition, celebrating half birthday's.
Nothing big or elaborate, just making half a cake and singing half of "Happy Birthday" to who ever's half birthday it is.
Lucas was our first half-birthday this year.
I made a round cake, red-velvet his favorite, cut the circles in half and stacked them all together.
Have I told you I haven't learned the trick to makes cakes flat yet?
Have I also told you I am often lazy and don't take the time to level out the rounded cakes which I intend to stack?
Yes, there might be a spoon in the back of the cake trying to hold the whole thing up....
but hey it's the tradition that counts right?
Happy Half Birthday Lucas.
