A Teenager? Really?

Today is my son's 13th Birthday.

Where did the time go?

I am not old enough to have a teenager, by the way. I guess if you want to get technical and be picky about it and sit there and count the years or something, I am actually old enough to have a grandchild. But still, I don't feel that old in my mind.

I baked a cake this year, instead of opting for the easy way out and buying a store bought one. Gave me a chance to use my aluminum cake carrier.

Totally off topic, but I love the handle on this thing. Something so Donna Reed about it.

I'm into minimalistic cakes. Or I ran out of red icing. Both work for me.

These are pencil toppers. I stuffed vanilla Tootsie Rolls into their behinds, so I could plant then on the cake without getting icing all over them.

So now you know why these birds are so angry!

You probably won't see me for a couple days. Have some projects to finish and have to go out of town on Friday (please don't rob my house). If I don't see you before then, have a great weekend!


  1. Happy Birthday Max. Your cake looks yummy. Have fun this week-end.

  2. Happy Birthday to your son, who is now a teenager ;))
    Your cake looks just like a birthday should look - yummy.
    Enjoy your weekend.

  3. Hey, I found out about this on Facebook. Now I know why I follow your blog there!
    Yes, you now have an old baby. But you don't look like you're out of your 20s. What's up with that?
    Happy 13th Birthday, Max!
    Your Mom's Friend, m.

  4. Happy Birthday to Max. I am totally coming after the croquet set.

  5. Yep, think I understand their ornery faces...

  6. Very cute, minimalist but cute - perfect for a 13 yr old. MMMM...cake...

  7. Yep, angry birds, now we know! Cute cake, especially for a guy. I'll take 13 year old boys over girls any day!

  8. Anything stuffed up my butt would make me cranky, too. Love the cake carrier. I have one much like it that was my grandma's. I use it often, especially during the holidays. Keeps the critters from licking all the icing off.
    Happy Birthday to the teenager. You fun is just beginning- big grin from the gal who's teenagers all grew up!

  9. Happy Birthday Max!!! I love the cake carrier.
    Thanks for your sweet comment. I saw the pin :)
    I won't rob your house... Only the cake and carrier!!
    Well, just the carrier. Ha, Ha, Ha.
    Have fun,
    xxx Liz

  10. Happy Birthday to Max. And the cake looks great! I hope the birds don't leave presents when the stuffing is removed.

  11. Happy 13th Birthday Max! Or to how about Happy 8th Anniversary of your 5th Birthday! That will make your mom feel better! LOL!!!

    Love the cake carrier!

  12. Happy Birthday to Max! My son turned eleven yesterday...I'm still crying about it.

  13. Love the cake--angry birds is a favorite in our teenage house too--actually, my husband likes it as much as the kids! Happy Birthday Max!

  14. Happy Birthday, Max!!! May all of your birthday wishes come true! Please give your Mom a hug, she is feeling old, she needs a hug and kiss right now. Hey, my son is 21, so I'm so old I need him to buy me a new car, nevermind a hug. ;)
    (Only kidding! I ALWAYS prefer hugs to ANYTHING else!)

  15. Happy Birthday to your son. Your cake looks perfect!

  16. GREAT cake. Looks scrumptious. ENJOY! HAPPY 13th BIRTHDAY MAX. Hope it was GREAT. take care.

  17. Birthday blessings to your son! Awesome angry bird cake and aluminum cake carrier. Have a fabulous rest of your week.

  18. Hope he had a grand birthday...but ...I think you are only old enough to have a 3yr old? right? :)

  19. I know, I still can't believe that my oldest is in college! I guess I could technically be a grandmother too....oh no! Anyway, hope your son had a wonderful birthday. I love the way you decorated his cake! Have a fun weekend with travel and projects!

  20. You always make me laugh, Pam. Happy b-day to your son!

  21. Happy Birthday Max!!!!
    Great cake even if the birds are angry lol ! But who wouldn't be with pops up your butt!
    Isn't it scary to think we could be grandma's? I work with teen girls (my eyes are rolling here) and it scares me to know I could be their mother!!! Where did time go???
    I love this cake holder! I remember our neighbour having one like it!

    Oh I think i will paint my room all white...but when is another story!
    Cheers to Max!

  22. My little boy is looking over my shoulder commmenting on your angry birds! Tee hee! andrea@townandprairie
