Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy! I want to encourage other moms on their journey, I'll share motherhood tricks, spotlight tips I've learned from friends, and I hope you will share your ideas. I will focus on secrets that help families stay balanced, healthy, frugal, creative, and closely knit. I will also share favorite fiction and nonfiction books that I have enjoyed. Many blessings to you on your mothering journey!

Decorating Birthday Cakes

Nope, this isn't a cake decorating tutorial! It's just a simple idea, based on the cake my friend Mary made for her son's last birthday. He's very into 'flying things' right now, so she bought some little tiny toys at the dollar store to put on top of his iced cake. So he had a yummy cake with yummy icing - then the hot air balloon, helicopter, airplane and other toys made it extra cool to fit the birthday theme of flying things. He loved it!

You can do this with anything that's plastic and easy to clean - characters, trains, cars, legos, blocks - whatever your child loves. Just sanitize the toys before and after caketime!!
