13th Birthday

Pin It

Hi everyone, yesterday was our babies 13th birthday. Can't believe we dont have any little kids in the house now ...all teenagers! i spent most of friday fluffing around with making a card, cake and getting pressies wraped and cooking extra food. I used my spellbinder nestability set of dies to make the scalloped circle and cut the shape of a rat then ran it through the cuttlebug. The little mouse is a cuttlebug die...Our daughter has mice and rats as pets and this card is Lelia her rat and Jerry her mouse. It was a fun card to make and she loved it. I said to all the kids i was going to make then a speacial cake for their birthdays this year and Mad's birthday is first off the rank. She wanted a rat cake ....well do you know how hard that was to picture!....i eventually did a google search and found a cute clipart pic and then turned it into a cake. heres what i came up with.

Cute hey! ...I thought so, i just couldnt bring myself to make some weird rat cake. Anyway i had it all finished and Dave said it has to have a peice of cheese...even though they dont eat cheese, so i made a wedge of cheese and placed plenty of choc poos in the appropriate place LOL.

Madaleine loved it and it was so yummy too! It was a great day as being sabbath makes it even better. We always have Daves mum over to celebrate our birthdays ..heres a pic

Later we went out for dinner and on to the ice skating rink which we hadnt done for years. It was such a fun night.well i hope you've enjoyed a little peek into a happy day.....Valita

and a last thought

And may you be able to feel and understand,
as all God's children should, how long,
how wide, how deep, and how high His love really is.
Ephesians 3:19

This is WAY too, too cute! When I first saw it, I thought the rat was for the Year of the Rat in the lunar chinese calendar. ...this is the Year of the Rat. girlfriend just celebrated and my husband will in October. Thanks for sharing.
