Weeks before Boston’s 11th birthday I came across a picture from his third birthday party and decided I wanted to try and inexpensively recreate the picture. I think I nailed it without spending a fortune. The main difference, to me, was the cost of the cake. Vegan cakes are much more expensive than an ole vanilla box cake by Betty Crocker. This is the resulting picture. This is the comparison picture between 2017 and 2009. London turned 12 just 10 days later and I sprung for a full vegan cake for him. It was INCREDIBLE! A few days before his birthday we went to a party for Ruby who was turning 4 and Boston took this picture of his brother. I love when they take pictures on my phone, seeing the world through their eyes.
My 9 pound, 3oz screaming bag of bones has turned into a beautiful, tall and thoughtful young lady. I’m old!!! She’s beautiful and I love her to death. My brother had us over to his house while we were in Boston to celebrate her day. My friend’s children made her a couple of cakes…. they turned out great!
