When you have boys especially, you need to love Lego. I have Lego everywhere in this house it seems and my eldest is only 3.5!
On the eve of my hubby's birthday, I thought I would show you what he did for Dean, our 2 year old for his birthday a couple of months back.
I am sure you have seen this cake before. It is from Donna Hay's Kids Special. It looked easy. I baked the cake and Rick, after wincing at my pallet knife skills took over putting his many years of roof pointing and rendering to good gastronomic use. I complained at his taking over but was actually quite relieved because I really do suck at that kinda thing. I do.
I really have a great man.
While he was slaving away, I mucked about with frosting and cupcakes that needed less precision!
Dean did such a good job of blowing out his candles. Probably was a bit agro from having is hands held back from the flames.
And then Rick could relax.
So it is Rick's birthday tomorrow. He'll get what I promise him every year and almost always deliver . . . roast beef and yorkshire pudding. And dessert? Not sure, but I will think of something.
Do you have a birthday ritual in your home?
