"Ahobe Der Me Pardies!"


Today Luke is 7!


Happy birthday to my strong willed child! There isn't a day that goes by that I'm not glad that he is ours! Though he's not a cuddly boy, that just makes the hugs and kisses that he does give (or take willingly!) all the more sweet. He is all boy, that's for sure. He loves dirt and bugs and tormenting his sister and not listening to his mother! Though I believe he is the reason for those 3 gray hairs I have, at least there aren't 7 - one for each of his years! His strong will will take him far in his life IF he learns to tame it and control it. He is a determined child and when he's not being cranky, he is a complete joy to be around. He's a big help and will do anything - when HE wants to! :) He thinks he's the strongest boy in the world because he can lift a mic stand and loves to quote Garfield, "It's 100% fat!" when refering to his rib cage and oh so flat belly! LOL


His favorite quote from Garfield is, "Love me, feed me, never leave me!" That, my dear son, I will pledge to you forever.


This title quote, along with the visit to the Wiggles World last week, inspired me to try this pirate ship cake for Luke's birthday today. The quote, "Ahobe der me pardies!" is Luke's 3 year old version of Captain Feather Sward's fameous quote, "Ahoy there me hardies!" He still likes pirates but he has graduated to "Pirates of the Carribean" lately and loves to tell me about "Davy Jones"!

Happy Birthday Luke! Wish we were there to celebrate and eat that yummy looking cake. I think you people who make your own cakes are so brave...I don't think I could ever decorate one quite right! Have a great weekend.

Happy Birthday, Luke!

Risa, you're are so more daring than I am with a cake....as it is I had to shoo everyone out of the house just so I could concentrate on getting the recipe right....not the best at multi-tasking in the kitchen....and mine will be nowhere near as creative as that!

Happy Birthday, Luke ;)

The best part of doing your own cake is that it doesn't have to be "just right". It's just prefect when you are done and nobody else has to be happy about it except the little one you are trying to please...and with those little imaginations you could tell them it was moon rocks and they would eat it up just because it was! :)
