Look who's 6 !?!

My little guy isn't so little anymore.

I got the great idea of making a pizza cake. It was easy, quick and quite yummy. I used a deep dish 14 in pizza pan, red frosing, shaved white chocolate, and fruit leather for the pepperoni. I had to go to two different pizza places to get a box to put the cake in. We tried convincing Elias to have pizza for lunch for his birthday, but he had his heart set on Haystacks .

After we were done eating lunch we pulled out the cake. Elias on the other hand wasn't quite that impressed. It took a little coaxing to get him excited about the cake.

I think part of his lack of excitement over the cake was the delay in opening presents. Who wants cake when there is a world of unknown surprises under all that wrapping paper?

This is my Mom's way of making sure the grandkids know who the gift is from.

What kind of gift could bring this excitement? A squirtgun.

And look who's playing with the toys after the kids all went to bed.

I love that cake idea! Too fun! I love that dad is playing with the race cars....true man for you!! We'd be doing the same thing!

I love the pizza cake. I might copy you.
Tell Elias that his present is coming... I like to send it late so that it doesn't get mixed up with all the other presents. Ok, that's not true. I am just really irresponsible.
