A Letter to the Birthday Boy

Dear Dylan,

Today is your birthday. Two years ago, God blessed us with you. You were a nine pound little bruiser born not looking like either of us with your blond hair and blue eyes! We loved you the moment mommy knew she was pregnant and when the nurse placed you in our arms that love deepened. We knew that you were truly a gift from God and made a promise to Him that we would raise you according to His word. We would teach you to love Him and to have your own relationship with Him. The bible says to "train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." It is God's promise to us. You have brought joy and happiness into our lives (along with some other feelings when you are being bad!)

We enjoy watching you grow and learn new things. This has been a learning experience for us as well as you.
We love you so much and pray you see many more birthdays!

Mommy and Daddy

Peanut Butter and Pumpkin

Wednesday was Kevin's birthday - he is getting old! I'm not going to tell you his age but you can guess when you see his cake. lol Every year we make each other a cake. This year his only request was "something with peanut butter", so I made him a chocolate cake with a peanut butter filling and icing. If you don't like peanut butter then you wouldn't like this cake!

Make a chocolate cake and bake it in two 9 inch round cake pans.

Pour milk and dry vanilla pudding mix into medium bowl. Beat 2 min. or until well blended. Add peanut butter; beat well.  Place one of the cake layers on a cake platter; spread with 1 cup of the pudding mixture
Cover with remaining cake layer.

Gently stir whipped topping into remaining pudding mixture.

Spread over top and side of cake.

I decorated his cake with Reese peanut butter cups!

The finished product!

Happy Birthday Kevin!

 For Thanksgiving I made a two layer pumpkin and cheescake pie. I had Dylan taste test it first and I think he liked it! You tell me!

He insisted on using 2 spoons!

Look at that pumpkin face!

So do you think he liked it?
