Simple Sunday - Cake

~ this is kind of a silly Simple Sunday post, but today I'm thankful for birthday cakes...not just because they taste good (although that is a strong point in their favor!), but because they reveal something about the person being celebrated...in our family, we always let the birthday person choose what kind of cake and icing; and now that the boys are a little older, I also let them choose what decorations we put on it...David's request this past April was for chocolate cake, green icing, sprinkles, and four dinosaurs...Josiah wanted chocolate cake (which he helped me make), chocolate icing, sprinkles--and then he chose seven cowboy & Indian figures to put on top of the cake, along with the seven twisty candles...I don't think I've ever had a cake with cowboys and Indians on top :), but I love it because it gives me a glimpse into Josiah's personality at this seven year-old stage of life...he's definitely a little warrior, rising to the call to be a fighter for righteousness and a defender of those who need protection, but still needing guidance from us about how to channel that warrior spirit and fight the right battles! :)

I love looking through photos of my cakes over the years -- it really shows the devotion and love my mother had for us. Happy birthday to your special boy!
