The Grandsons, watching Dad light the candles on his birthday cake -
Gluten-free chocolate chip cookies, stacked
and pierced with a candle
It worked, kinda, as a birthday cake substitute. I used a Betty Crocker GF Chocolate Chip Cookie mix and added a couple extra cups of chocolate chips and chopped walnuts. Of course.
And now, to watch Dad blow out the candles
Such serious business!
You can see I made sure to put this birthday cake on a beautiful display plate, lol. And btw, I never really notice how much junk I have sitting around until I see a photo like this.
Can you find:
The coffee grinder
The soap box and cutter
The laundry basket
The stick of butter
The key-holder cat
The coffee maker
The scrambled eggs
The vintage egg crate
The vintage boiler
Grandpa Nelson-made bench
It was fun to have our oldest son and two of their boys with us on his birthday. The other kids and Mom were home, sorting and packing as they get ready to put their house [in the Minneapolis suburbs] on the market and move to Wisconsin. I can't wait!
