Tomorrow My Baby Turns 13

I just can't believe it's been that long. As Jason says, "Fun flies when you're doing time". So in anticipation of the big day, I thought I'd blog tonight to tell you what I'm doing. Instead of the traditional cake, we will be having Cake Balls (not to be confused with Schweddy Ball you've probably seen on Saturday Night Live).

First you bake the cake. Then once it's done, crumble the warm cake in a bowl and stir in a can of frosting until it's blended. Then you use a melon baller (or since I don't have one, a small cookie scoop) and dip balls of cake into warm chocolate. Cool on wax paper until set. I can't wait. I plan to take some pics.

Just wanted to post some pictures of Jared
This is Jared when he was only 2 and a half years old. Just love that grin.
And this is Jared today. The hair is longer and he is a lot taller but he's still my baby.

I love love love the picture of Jare bear as a little-un. I remember well that super sweet faced boy! Looks so much like his mommy! What a lucky guy! I just wish his hair was still short so we could love his cuteness again. Alas, at 13 I'm sure he does NOT want us thinking of him as the cute jare bear any more!
