Okay, so remember how I said I would have more time to Blog and I would catch up? Well, obviously I lied and I apologize. When I'm not doing a show, baking, or playing with my son, I've been out in my yard working (Are you proud of me Mom??). I love Spring.
Why has it taken SO long for me to post this blog??
I have been DESPERATLY trying to upload a video of Kashton eating his Birthday Cake...but, alas, I'm very technologically challenged. You will just have to settle for these pictures.
So, April 11th was Cameron's 29th Birthday. He doesn't really care for cake but his FAVORITE is cheesecake. So we had our friends Mark and Kelly over and Cam's brother Cory and his girlfriend came over. We ate a pot roast and veggies and cheesecake.
Happy Birthday to my cute, sexy man!!! (Who happens to be a cheesy goof-ball)
We celebrated Kashton's birthday a little early. We had a joint party on Monday the 21st for Kashton and his friend Parker. They are 9 days apart. The party was at Steve and Kelly's house (Parker's mom and dad) and I made the cakes.

Yes, I'm a freaky mom!! Kashton still hasn't really had much sugar, so these cakes were very healthy!!

Yummy marble cake with chocolate chip filling and cream cheese frosting. Not fattening at all!

Kashton had a Superman cake and Parker had a Batman cake. Carrot cake made with wheat flour, wheat germ, and applesauce.

Sweet little Birthday Boy!!!

Me and my little Man. I LOVE HIM!!!

The Woman who LOVE him (and spoil him).
Me, Chesca, Kelly, Lana, and Kelly

We set the boys down to see who would race to their cakes first. Obviously, Parker won. Kashton is such an observer, he always watches Parker. "Uncle" Chip is helping Kashton. (He has alot of adopted aunts and uncles since he never can see his real ones.

Parker dove right into his cake, Kashton really wasn't sure about it.

Daddy had to help Kashton a little bit. Parker wanted his cake AND Kashton's too.

This is the video footage I wanted to show. Cameron helped Kashton with his cake and Kashton immediately started flinging his arm around trying to get the cake off of his hands. What a Priss!!! He didn't like getting dirty.

He just liked his Superman truck. He didn't really want to eat, let alone TOUCH the cake.

Our two kids are complete polar opposites. It's very fun to observe these two. Parker is pretty hyper and likes to get messy. He got his face right down into his cake.

Kashton likes to watch and observe. He's so proper.

Parker: Dirty, Manly-Man!!!

Kashton: Whoosy, Girly-Man (HA..just kidding!! I promise I wont give my son a complex)

After the two boys got a bath, we let them open presents from their adopted "aunts" and "uncles." Of course, the paper was FAR more exciting then the gift.
Thank you everyone for coming and celebrating this awesome day with our little Birthday Boy!

This was actually the morning of Kashton's Birthday, Sat. April 26th. Mommy and Daddy gave him this cute hat. He still needs to grow into it.

Opening presents from mommy, daddy, grandma's and grandpas' and REAL aunts and uncles.

Cute little one in his "Big Boy" clothes that match Daddy's
