Sunday Snapshot - "Can somebody say....chocolate!"

Sept garden,piano etc 031

It was Daddy's birthday last week and we usually go out somewhere yummy for our birthday celebrations but this year Danny asked for only one thing.

An old-fashioned, home-made, gooey, yummy chocolate cake!
That's it....that's all he wanted. (We used to eat cake but almost never do now so this was a real treat.)
And to stay home and eat it. So that's what we did.

Ni Hao Y'all

And my little helper was almost giddy to get in there and mix the chocolate frosting.

And the requisite taste-test!! Well....yeah!

Can you tell someone has just had a sugar-rush!!! She almost crazed.

A final taste as we heard Daddy coming in the front door.

These girlies sure know how to greet their Daddy.

Belated birthday greetings to your husband. :)

What a sweet, sweet way to greet Daddy as he comes home. It totally melts my heart to see Z rush to the door and greet Chris when he comes home. She would literally barge into him and give him a big hug. Girls are so sweet, aren't they?

Gail said...

Happy Birthday to your husband!

As R says, "The best part of making the cake Momma is licking the bowl and the spoon!" Looks like that is a popular idea. A happy birthday to your husband and happy cake eating...always!
