We are super thrilled that Grammy will flying in tomorrow and staying for one, wonderful week! The kids and I plan to get as much Grammy love in as possible.
To kick the week off properly, I put Lasagna Roll Ups, (recipe here), on the menu with some salad and garlic bread. Mmm...mmm.
Dessert is in honor of Miss Clementine's birthday. (Where in the world has the time gone??)
Her birthday is not until Monday, but with David's busy schedule, we decided to have her "tea party" themed birthday cake on Sunday ;)
The girl is all about tea parties these days.
I'm excited to see how her special cake turns out. The bakery we've used in the past has always done such gorgeous work.
Being one of nine kids, we rarely went out for dinner and had one, BIG birthday party with our classmates (in the first grade). My mom, however, always ordered a beautiful cake from a friend of hers who ran a cake decorating business out of her home. I have the fondest memories of waiting for my dad to bring home the cake box, watching as Mom opened it up, and seeing what beautiful magic Miss Martha created for me (and each of my siblings). The one I particularly recall (I think I was 3 years old) was a Raggedy Ann doll cake. Oh! It was too beautiful to eat! Such fond memories :)
I can hardly wait to share her birthday photos here!
Have a wonderful weekend!
