another teen!

Today we officially have 3 teens in the house...and the third one is a boy!  Yikes!  How did that happen?

He chose a snickers cake; a new recipe that we found.  His oldest sister generously made it for him.  She tweaked the recipe a little...she said it didn't call for enough chocolate chips and peanuts so she doubled up on that.  It was pretty yummy.  (And really rich; we made a 9x13 pan and it was plenty for our large family).

If you're interested, the recipe is here.

He enjoys Legos and one of his favorites is Chima; this particular thing is a game.  He also got a throwing knife set and a new bike helmet.  Plus money of course. :)

He has really grown in the past year.  His youngest brother and sister adore him and always clamor to sit on his lap or be held by him.   He is such a blessing to all of us.

Until next time...

That cake looks amazing! Our sons always loved Legos too. I kept them all when they moved out and now they play with them and THEIR sons when they come visit. I'm not sure who has the most fun., the adults or the children,
