It's a Celebration!

So, I was so thrilled to have moved up in rank on Cre8buzz to a single digit number, that I thought a celebration was in order, and what's a celebration without cake? My children are all so proud of me (but they could be faking for the sake of German chocolate cake), and my husband said he always knew I was a "top ten girl". I'm #9! I'm #9!
Lyndsay baked the cake for me. It has nine 9's, with each of the smaller 9's being made of nine chocolate chips each. She gets that pesky little OCD thing from me. tee hee.
If we look a little grubby, that's only because we'd just gotten back from walking nine victory laps around the track at the high school. Kidding! What do you think I am, some kind of freak? We only did 6! (which is an upside-down 9.) Here we all are, holding up nine fingers each! What a cheerleading squad I've got!

Man, don't enlarge that last picture. Talk about psycho eyes! Adam (taking the picture) was making us all laugh, and now I look like some sort of crazy!

Sarah said...

doh! Did Conor dig in early? Looks like he's thiefing some choco chips from one of those 9's!!

you are a hoot.
i am not even surprised that you all held up 9 fingers each, too.

and you know when you tell someone not to do something, of course they will. how did you get conor to hold up nine also?

happy nine to you. now i expect to see 8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 cakes over the next several days ha. thanks for telling me about 8buzz. i like it. you are a riot, kathleen

Congrats on the 9.

Sarah...good eye! Yep, he reached right in and hooked himself up with some chocolate. (He gets that from my side of the family.)

Way to go, woman! 6 is an upside down 9 indeed . . . sounds like something I'd do.

I almost didn't comment... I'll take it past 9, but thought it'd be fun to say CONGRATS, and to tell you how tasty-cool that cake looks!
