Tea for Two

Monday (family day) was a relaxed one. I slept in really late. I took some cold medicine before I went to bed and it knocked me for a loop, so I slept later than normal. We ate lunch on the late side, because Diane came up to mop my house (she usually comes on Wed., but she will be gone this week.) and that put us behind schedule. It was no big deal though, we enjoyed our leisurely day. We got home so late, that the kids didn't even get a nap. I started working on Faith Ann's birthday cake and spent all evening (til 2 a.m. actually) working on it. It was fun though. Sometimes cakes stress me...but I had fun. And they always turn out a little funny looking...this one looks like Mrs. Potts when she has turned 80.
She looks a little saggy and has a granny mouth. But, she still is cute, and hopefully Faith Ann knows who it is haha! I also have a set of Beauty and the Beast Figurines that I'll put around Mrs. Potts as part of her gift. So, her party is tomorrow (Tues.), but her birthday is actually Wednesday. Wednesdays are a bad day for parties though, since Ben is gone til 8 p.m. so we decided to do it a day early like we did with Emma. I'm so excited...I love giving gifts to my kiddos and seeing them excited! Birthdays are so fun!
Pin It!


  1. I think it's really cute!! I know Faith Ann will be so excited when she sees it! I love my kids birthdays too! It's fun to see it through their eyes! :)

  2. Becca,

    It turned out adorable. I'm sure Faith Ann loved it. I absolutely love the eyes on Mrs. Potts. They are so cute.

  3. I have enjoyed recently learning what's going on in your family, Becca and getting glimpses back into my dear Cameroon! We were surprised you got a puppy!
    Have you heard any news about the boy in Sabga who was hit?

  5. Becca, you did an amazing job. I have some cake baking jobs lined up for you when you get home. You can earn some extra money. You did a great job.
