When the time came to plan family pictures, all I could think was that I was really done with 2017. Like last year, this year has been A LOT. It’s been heavy, it’s been overwhelming, but it’s also been joyful and beautiful. So I decided we needed cake. 5 cakes. Five cakes to smash and eat and dose Stella for. Five cakes to celebrate a year with Fox. Five cakes for Paisley to throw at her sister and her parents and her frustrations. Five cakes for five Davis’ being here another year.
I think the best part is that Jon didn’t fully understand what we were doing with the cakes. I just told him we needed to bake and frost 5 cakes for pictures and he just said ok and helped do it.
It wasn’t until I took the first handful that I think he fully grasped what we were doing. Did we mention he got a ribbon in 4H for cake decorating? He makes sure to bring that up every time I make a cake.
Things escalated pretty quickly.
Notice Fox does not move. Not at all. He could not have been happier to just sit and eat cake.
