Birthday {Near} Mishap

We hadn't planned on doing anything extra special yesterday because Ron said he didn't want a party. He didn't want to go out to eat or just really have any type of surprise. But, after everyone but Amy was here, he decided that he'd like to have something "sweet" - i.e., "please get me a birthday cake."

He had already asked Amy to bring him some (diet) Peach Fresca so she called to ask me where I had bought it. I asked her to go ahead and pick up a small cake and she managed to find one with non-dairy whipped topping for frosting. (I'll have to look up the potassium count on that...)

Here is the cake:


Amy wrote the words.

He didn't know that she had gotten a cake, so when I lit it and took it into him, he was surprised. We all sang Happy Birthday to him and I was going to take his picture with the cake.

Except...

When I leaned over to hand him the cake, Maisey jumped up into his lap to see if she could snag a bite, the cake started slipping and was going to land on Ron's lap, and when I went to stop the cake from becoming a permanent part of Ron's wardrobe, I burned my hand on the candle, which tipped over as the cake was sliding.

After letting out a not-so-nice word (I was in pain), I told him to just blow out the candle before I lost the whole cake on him.

There you have it... birthday near mishap.

Faith did end up getting a picture of the birthday boy with Isaiah.



Isaiah is such a "cheeser" when someone gets out a camera!

Hope the burn isn't too bad. This reminds me of something similar about my wedding cake. I'll write a blog about that someday. Glad you guys were able to surprise him. Love that. Great pic!!
