Birthday Time-What a Great Weekend!

Lar and Jake are just 2 days apart. Well, more like 7 years and 363 days apart. What I mean is, that every August we get to celebrate their birthdays in close succession. It is fun! I made both of them cake and ice cream, of their choice, as well as birthday dinners. Somehow Jonah got involved in all the blowing out of candles, although I think Lar beat him to the chase. The funniest thing about Lar's birthday was how excited Ryanne was. I told her this morning that it was Lar's birthday and when I went to pick her up from Primary, I noticed she had a coupon for a free ice cream cone and a Happy Birthday sticker on her dress. I didn't think too much about it, until we were sitting down, and I started to wonder what it was for. Turns out, she told her Primary teached today was her birthday and they believed her. She got to stand up in front of everyone and they sang to her and gave her a little coupon. She was so excited, I guess she forgot whose birthday it really was! We got a good laugh out of that, especially since Jonah was in the same room and went along with the whole thing.

Lar loved her Peaches and Cream Chiffon Cake with homemade Rasperry-Lime Sorbet and homemade Vanilla Raspberry Ice Cream. I love her side view in this picture. What is she doing? I don't know, but she does it cutely.

Jake requested a light cake, with blueberry filling and swiss buttercream and homemade root beer ice cream. I thought it was somewhat of an odd combo, but it all turned out great. (Check out my food blog for more pics and all the recipes)
Somehow Jonah got in on this one too.
Savannah just looked on in amazement.

I felt so bad to take the ice cream coupon back. The tears she had were SO big. I cant wait for her birthday to give it back to her.
Your cakes are beautiful.
