"If the God you believe in as an idea doesn’t start showing up in what happens to you in your own life, you have as much cause for concern as if the God you don’t believe in as an idea does start showing up. It is absolutely crucial, therefore, to keep in constant touch with what is going on in your own life’s story and to pay close attention to what is going on in the stories of others’ lives. If God is present anywhere, it is in those stories that God is present. If God is not present in those stories, then they are scarcely worth telling." ~ Frederick Buechner

Little B's First Birthday: Baking the Rocket Ship Cake!

Tonight, while Nich runs out to get Chinese takeout for our dinner, I am making Little B's cake for his first birthday party tomorrow.

I'm more than a little nervous about this.

Not the baking part ... that doesn't worry me at all. It's the decorating part.

Nich says he has full confidence in my artistic abilities. That doesn't make me feel much better, though, because he, bless his heart, has this idea that I am naturally quite gifted artistically.

(I'm not.)

Here's the cake I'm baking, the frosting I'll be making/using, and the general idea for the structure (for lack of a better word) of the rocket.

So cross your fingers with me that it will all turn out beautifully. I'll (hopefully) have pictures to share when it's all done, so come back for a peek! :~)
