2 and 5

Sunday was the boys birthday. Yes, that's right: they share the same birthday! (three years apart) We decided on a pirate/star wars/thomas the train party. (couldn't leave anybody out!)
Here is the cake I made. A chocolate rich cake made with honey instead of sugar. And a cream cheese frosting with black food dye (I used ridiculous amounts to get the color just right) I'm not by any stretch of the imagination a cake decorator, but kids never figure that stuff out and they love it anyway!)





Light sabor and Star Wars books...
And a very cool new bike!


Melissa and Doug wooden tool kit..

And Thomas the Train...
which still has not left his side!
Oh and I had one of those "cause and effect" realization moments after the kids dug into the cake. Black frosting.... black mouths. Like something from the Lord of the Rings (or the band- KISS), it was a little unreal!





We had so much fun! A memorable day to be sure!
