Mom Turns Five!

Our kids thought of a creative reason to put a "5" on my birthday cake this year. Can you figure it out? I'm not telling today!The kids were very excited this year to prepare my birthday treat themselves. On their way back into town yesterday from bringing our friends home, Joe and Mikey stopped and got an angel food cake, some whipped cream, and then picked up my favorite dinner! After kicking me out of the kitchen, the other kids were thrilled to do their very important part with the strawberries--washing, cutting, and macerating (with a little sugar). The best part? A birthday cake buffet! Everyone assembled their own--just the way they like it--by cutting the cake into bite-sized pieces, adding strawberries, then seeing how high they could pile on the whipped cream. Now that's a fun treat!

Happy Birthday!!!

Let's see... answer to the riddle...

They put "5" cause you are expecting baby #5??

Totally kidding ;)

I was thinking the same thing that your friend Angela was guessing. You are pregnant with #5??? Come on, you have to tell now.
