Week in Review: Cake Bake

This past week was all about J!

We watched his Karate belt test on Monday, and were so proud of him when he advanced to a yellow belt. Tuesday night we watched him perform in a play on Texas History, including singing several songs and dancing the Cotton-Eyed Joe.

Thursday night was the Cub Scout Cake Bake Contest. J had to bake and decorate the cake himself. He chose to enter the Holiday competition with a Christmas Tree-shaped cake complete with battery-operated lights. It's hard to see in this photo, but the tree really was lit up. He won first place and was so excited!!

He also had an orthodontist appointment, a doctor's appointment and a special luncheon on Thursday. With all the running around we did with J, and with the return of her cold, M didn't want to do any of the activities I had planned for her last week. We'll try them again this week.

  1. I am so impressed with this cake - it certainly deserves the first prize. I am also very well familiar with the "don't want to do anything" attitude - it visited us last week too :)


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate it!
