Yesterday this showed up in our house:

Yes, it was my birthday! Caleb and Mickael picked out this cake for me (after a brief discussion of a Batman cake) and I think it's just perfect. First of all, it's chocolate. Second, check out the princesses! Cinderella is my favorite movie ever, Aurora (Sleeping Beauty) had some issues with a spinning wheel, and Belle (Beauty and the Beast) is the first brunette princess! (Snow White had black hair, not brown and is probably my least favorite Disney princess.) I know it probably killed Caleb to pick out a princess cake, but I thought it was really sweet. Oh, and guess what? Cinderella's skirt lights up! Because it's not a truly happy birthday until a princesses' skirt lights up. Or something.

I also have to show you what Mickael and Caleb got me:

A whole box full of Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece! I'm going to do a Hexagon blanket after I finish The Babette and that's what these are for. There are a couple of other colors I want to add to the pile but this gives me the majority of the colors I need. (I've tucked in a couple of partial skeins I had in my stash from previous projects too, that's why there are some smaller looking skeins on the left.) For now, I'll just stare at all the pretty colors in the box until it's time to start the blanket!

Happy birthday! What a treat for your boys to choose a cake with princesses.

I have been crocheting the hexagon squares for potholders but thinking about making an afghan too. I will be watching for yours.
