On my birthday Ty and Marc surprised me with a rainbow cake that Ty had made for me and flowers and a Christmas wreath that he had bought with Daddy. He was so excited to show me them.
Birthday sunset walk
The next day I baked a chocolate cake for dinner and then handed the spoon to Zeke to lick. I left the room for a minute and came back to this. I think this was partially Zeke's doing and partially Ty's doing.

Christmas Eve walk
On Christmas Eve night we headed to Marc's second cousins, then to church for Christmas dinner and home to open two presents - matching pyjamas and one small toy. Here is Ty showing off his pajamas and excitedly telling Zekey that he got Angry Birds balls.
And lastly I will leave you with our Christmas baking plates. Some baked by yours truly and some by friends. Delightful! (This may have appealed to you before Christmas but now many of you are probably all cookied out) ;)
