Birthday Fun!

It was Allison's 9th birthday this weekend so we had a party.  Here's a picture of the cake I made for her.  I learned how to make daisy's in my cake class the night before.  

I used this great frosting recipe I found with lemon zest in it.  (It doesn't make for a very smooth cake).  Oh well, live and learn.

Aren't they the cutest ragamuffins ever?   I can't believe I have a 9 year old.  I am not old enough.

How fun!! I hope she had a nice day. I remember when she and Gunner were just babies and you were living at your in-laws!! Just wait until she turns 12-that really makes you feel old! My Nicole is going into mutual in 3 months! SCARY!!!
PS. loved the cake

Cute cake! And, you are old enough to have a nine year old and oh wait, old enough to have a 12 year old too! Yesterday I became old enough to have a 14 year old! That is old.

Happy birthday Al! Wow, 9 years old! She'll always have a special place in my heart because she was the first one to be born after I married Eric. I felt like I was officially her aunt! Beautiful cake!

What an amazing cake! Allison is lucky to have a mom like you.

Superdy duperdy cute cake! Are you taking another class? Where? Details please!

And no, you're not old enough to have a 9 year old. You just should have started really late like me and then you could be at the park with all the 20 somethings.

I thought your oldest was around 12 but I was thinking Allison was your oldest!! I'm an idiot! I don't know about you but having a 12 year old really makes me feel old. It seems like yesterday we were at Poston!! Crazy
