We have been celebrating 5 for so long, J is in danger of turning 6 before we're finished, and 7 before I post about it. If you were involved in any of our many celebrations, thank you. We're so blessed to have such awesome family and friends, willing to let us totally monopolize their weekends.

How about my mom's solar system cake? That little space shuttle kills me. She made a Yoda cake a few years ago, which may be the best she's ever decorated. This one is giving it a run for its money. The whole thing is exactly what J asked for. If I'd known we'd still be space crazy a year later, I would have held a few tricks back last year.

I made a  less than awesome birthday t-shirt (which seems to have become a tradition, L has already given the specs for her's) but haven't been motivated enough to photograph it. Maybe I'll add it later.


  1. Love the cake! Did you show J Venus crossing the sun?

    1. We talked about it, but it was overcast here. I called a local welding shop trying to get the safety glass so we could safely look at the sun, but they had been sold out for a week. Apparently, lots of (equally cautious) people were excited about it.
