Happy Easter and Happy Birthday

My baby turned 10 years old today. The only thing on his wish list was Lego, and he has spent most of the day building the new Lego sets that he recieved.

Since his is such a huge fan I wanted to make a him a cake that looked like a piece of Lego, but instead he wanted to continue on with a tradition that started out with Jordan a few years Ago when I let his friends pick out his cake. At the time we were looking there wasn't too many themed cakes available for boys, so instead they chose a Little Mermaid cake and requested that she had a moustache .... and thus began the tradition of the "girly cake with a moustache"

If you look closely at the cake, all the princesses on this little boys birthday cake are each sporting quite a lovely moustache. Upon Jason's request to continue the tradition we bought him a "girly cake with a moustache".... and he couldn't have been happier.

Happy Birthday Jason!

The Entertainer

I have been a shut in for the past week or so, and I desperately needed to get out. After my Doctor appointment the other day, Darren, myself and my black eye decided to check out IKEA. It is a bit of drive so we rarely go, and when we do I often leave with nothing or a few small items here and there.

Quite surprisingly we found a cool entertainment center. We really needed something in our family room that was both budget friendly and could hold lots of "schtuff". As you can see we found something pretty cool. It is a perfect fit for the wall space with just a few inches to spare. Now we just need to hide the cords and decorate. Any suggestions on what do on the wall space on the right? It is an awkward wall that sticks out about 6" from the wall that the entertainment center is against.
