My Kids: Future Bloggers

My sister wanted to see a picture of my birthday cake. Strangely, I didn't take any pictures on my birthday. I guess it was my day off. However, I knew that my son's camera was in action that day, so I went to the other computer to see what he had recorded.

What did I find?

A complete photo story of the entire day, from beginning to end.

Many of those photos are just not fit for public viewing. I had a migraine that day, and since it was my birthday, I was the subject of several pictures. I was wearing baggy flannel pajamas. I had not fixed my hair. I had the expression of . . . well, of a mother with a migraine.

But there were many other pictures from which to choose. He took pictures of the weather, of his siblings, of the mess on the kitchen table when they were finished with the cake, and of each and every step of the cake construction project.

Here are a few samples.

My safety-conscious child uses potholders even when the cake pan is entering the oven.

Sculpting the frosting requires many hands.

The finished project: a work of art. This is definitely my favorite birthday cake of all time.

How cute your kids took pictures. I hope you had a great Birthday! I am sorry you had a migraine. As someone who suffers from a migraine almost every week, I can totally relate!!

That was GREAT!
I recently discovered my kids do the same thing with their camera too! (so, I let them start a private blog for themselves & our closest family members. They love it!)
LOVE the cake! They did a great job!
