Hockey skates and birthday cakes!

December brings cold weather, (usually)
and family time!

We have been blessed with a very mild winter so far
and I for one am not complaining!

Don't get me wrong,
I would always pick a snowy Christmas morning
if it could melt into spring at the end of the day,
but not having to cancel or reschedule because of bad roads
is so nice.

My "baby" turned 12 this month.
WOW! just WOW!

Since hockey is one of his favorite things to do in the winter
I decided to try my hand at a hockey skate cake.

As with most cakes I make, I learned a lot about what
does and doesn't work.
But even with the things that didn't work,
his response was my reward!

Dad helped by "painting" the laces with those little black lines.

A few days after his birthday,
he had a hockey game and
after the game we went with his team for
pizza and cake!

After the party I realized that I hadn't got a picture of
the birthday boy with the cake so
we took one when we got home with
what remained.

And this means next year at this time,
we will be parents of teenagers! *gasp*

Happy Birthday, Son!
We love YOU!
