Too Much Cake!

Well, we had Kamy's birthday. She said "I think you are going to have a surprise party for me!" I replied "Babe, we don't know anybody!"


Sorry to burst her bubble, but it was just the family. I made a butterfinger cake for her (otherwise known as better than s@x cake) and had cherry ice cream too. Even though the cake was really good, my kids just don't eat cake. So we have a mountain of it leftover. It is my favorite cake, so I guess I'll be forking it in for the next week! Here's how you make it:

Butterfinger Cake 1 chocolate cake mix, made according to the directions. When the cake comes out of the oven, poke lots of holes in it (I dig around with a fork) and saturate the top with butterscotch ice cream topping. Let cool. The topping is a carton of cool whip with crushed butterfinger and walnuts mixed in to it and then spread over the top. Sprinkle 2 tsp of reserved crushed butterfinger on top. Serve.

It's really the easiest thing to make and it tastes soooo good.


But to make things fun for Kamy, I sent her on a scavenger hunt to find her presents. She had to follow clues to find her gifts. The kids really enjoyed it. She got two art boxes full of stickers, glitter, stencils, markers, and such to make her own scrapbook. She got a glimmery CTR necklace as well as scriptures with her name on them. We are planning her baptism for the 22nd. She is very excited about that.

Oh, Happy Birthday, Kamy! I feel sad she wanted a surprise party and couldn't...but maybe next year after friends are made.

We like to do a scavenger hunt for our kids birthday gifts, too. They seem to love it.

Bethany: She would love to be a pen Her class at school use to do it.

Margarite: Nobody is coming for the baptism. Everyone is too far away. It will be a One-Fam Show, I'm afraid.

Sharon: She was exactly like Boo when that movie came out. Sounded exactly like her in the movie. So funny that you remembered that.
