Today, Uncle Silvan celebrated his birthday with us. This meant that the kids were over-stimulated, wild, crazy and so happy to share this amazing day. Birthdays are always a slam dunk around here.
The kids took turns snuggling with Uncle Silvan. They watched Phineas and Ferb
under a blanket before a reasonable hour on this Sunday. You have no idea how much I loathe Phineas, Ferb and that whiny ass bitch, Candace. Knowing that Silvan had things under control allowed me the opportunity to sleep for an extra 45 minutes. I totally owed him one, and by one, I meant a home cooked meal.
I broke out some packing bubbles. I rescued these from the trash at my office, brought them home and allowed the kids to pop them in the driveway. This good old fashioned hilariousness. Look at how much fun it is
to destroy packing materials with your feet. Lucy and Ethel may have stomped on grapes for a good time, but my kids, are all about the noisy, Ka-Pow, of sheets of BUBBLES. This provided serious entertainment and good exercise.
We spent a good portion of the day outdoors. While Natalie continued to ride her bike, CJ made all kinds of contraptions, Eli chased Charlotte and I made Uncle Silvan a birthday cake. When you are four or five years old, it is not really your birthday unless you have a cake with candles.
I cranked out one of the multi layer yellow cakes, filled with chocolate ganache and iced in milk chocolate butter cream. I decorated it with whipped cream and fresh raspberries for a festive,
non food dye version of a birthday torte. Watching Phineas & Ferb episodes earned Uncle Silvan this deluxe dessert.
We sang Happy Birthday, Silvan and CJ blew out the two candles
and it was considered a real live birthday party. Cake and candles are legit. This cake was so incredibly delicious, Natalie had to literally, lick the paper plate clean.
FYI- if I make you this cake, I like you. Clearly, I like Uncle Silvan- with or without the famous 1970's porn star moustache. After all, it was his birthday, so I had to give him a break. I will be back to hocking and draying him later in the week. Until then, it is just another day of fun here at the Slutskys.
