Happy Birthday Sam!

Three years ago today, Samuel tried to enter this world face first and has kept us on our toes with his health since. In fact, this is his very first birthday cake! The recipe comes from this book, and I must admit that I remained skeptical the whole time I prepared it. Seriously, it has no eggs, sugar or butter in it. I just kept reminding myself that Sammy has never had cake before, so he won't know the difference. It turned out okay though (especially if you like cocoa).

As for the birthday boy, he is our sweet heart. If you gave all the boys their favorite treat, than asked for a bite, Sam would be the first to share. He also has a great sense of humor and we have several running jokes that he loves to participate in. He absolutely loves animals, and is always the first to pet or touch one. Yesterday, I said "Sam! Your gonna be three tomorrow!" He looked up and said "So, your gonna keep me?" For sure my sweet boy, for sure. Happy Birthday! Posted by Picasa

I didn't particularily like the cake, i'm not a big fan of cocoa-tasting things. The boys did eat it all though, so what more could I ask for?
