Today, my almost 11 year old requested cream cheese brownies! We have started his week long celebration of his birthday! Out of my 5 kids and 23 nieces and nephews, my son Gregory is the most picky when it comes to food. He does not eat vegetables or fruit! Crazy, I know, since those are my two favorite food groups! When I asked him what he wanted for his birthday he quickly replied:
"Cream Cheese Brownies, Angel Food Cake, Cheesecake Swirl Cupcakes and Chicken Cordon Blue Sandwiches!"
Smiling back at him, I say to myself... this can be done!
So on tap for today: Cream Cheese Brownies for him and his friends. Tomorrow: Chicken Cordon Blue and Angel Food Cake for the family (there will be 30).
And for his actual birthday: Cheesecake Swirl Cupcakes for his class!
It is hard to believe that he is 11! He has blessed our lives in so many ways! I was pregnant with him when my mom was first diagnosed with cancer... It was his birthday face, a year later, that helped her fight to live, and it is still that face, that makes her smile every time she thinks of that 1 yr. old wearing his birthday crown!
