Birthdays are the happiest of occasions, but wow, do they ever creep up. Our Landon celebrated #10 this year. He's on his way to becoming such a hard-working, responsible young man. He has become a terrific basketball player over the past year (could it be because I practice with him?). I was sure he would ask for a basketball-themed cake this year. So sure, in fact, I had been saving pictures and ideas for a basketball cake for months. My guess was a little off. When I asked him what kind of cake he wanted, he didn't hesitate to answer. It had to be John Deere with lots of green icing. So John Deere it was. I was even able to make John Deere cookies to go with the cake, thanks to Amazon Prime. My tractor cookie cutter arrived in plenty of time, even though it was ordered at the last minute. Whew, that's not the first time I've been saved by two day shipping.
