my baby celebrated his eleventh birthday!!
actually, we celebrated twice...
(seems like this is starting to be a trend)
once, the day before with all his cousins.
this of course meant we needed to make a cake...
and EVERYONE needed to help.
the second birthday celebration was a little bit simpler.
since his real birthday fell on Ash Wednesday..
which is a day of fast and abstinence...
(this means no eating meat or eating between meals)
salmon cakes and homemade mac n cheese for dinner...
complete with singing and a candle.
