Brotherly Love

Yesterday, I was baking a cake...a strawberry cake with cool whip icing. I thought that I would make a treat for the boys. Cole is back home staying with me for a while. Anyway, Garrett came into the kitchen to see what I was making and he said "Mama, you forgot that I don't like strawberries or cool whip. I won't get to have any cake." ( He thought that I forgot but I really didn't.) I said, "Oh well, I guess Cole will have a lot of cake to eat." Garrett looked so sad as he walked out of the kitchen.

Little did he know, I had already planned on baking another cake too. (I split the batter to make two cakes.) Just like he likes...plain butter cake with chocolate icing. That is his favorite. He loves butter cake. He doesn't even have to have icing. He likes it plain with a glass of cold,cold, milk. I wish that I would've taken a picture of him when he came back into the kitchen and saw this cake! He had the biggest smile on his face! The best part was when he said "Thank you, Mama."

This is my little man pumping gas into my car the other day. Look at that face when he saw me pull out my camera! LOL

He really looks thrilled here that I'm taking his picture! He does this crazy smile because he says that he doesn't want to show his teeth! He is getting his braces soon. Silly boy.

I took this picture this morning. I went into Cole's room and saw that Garrett had crawled up into bed with his brother and slept there all night. They were watching a movie together whenever I went to bed. They don't know that I took this picture. Matter of fact, they are still asleep. I stayed up late too. I wanted to watch the end of a movie that I had been watching for a couple of nights. 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons'. That was the longest movie! It took me three nights to watch it. I always fall asleep!! This past week end was very busy at work and I have been so tired. I was off all day yesterday and also today. I plan on getting a lot of things done around the cottage today. (after I visit a few blog-friends) LOL

Have a great day!

The cakes were goooooddd!! I just had to try a piece of both of them. Of course, the butter cake with chocolate icing is my favorite.
I am glad that Cole is spending time with Garrett. Garrett really enjoys the time spent with his big brother.

What a wonderfully sweet and stinker of a mommy all at the same time! I wish I could have seen his face. I like the Benjamin Buttons movie, the middle was a bit slow and I got my brain tied in knots trying to figure all the age changes and dates, but the whole premise was fascinating I thought. Have a super day tomorrow!

What we do for our babies! LOL I have to almost make two of everything because the Teen Princess is a picky eater. I bet you're enjoying Cole being home for awhile, and obviously Garrett is!!! (That photo is the cutest)!!! You have some handsome boys Lee.

Sometimes I wonder what my son's life would have been like if he'd had a brother. Not God's will I suppose as he was only blessed with his sister, Adrienne... I'm sure she'll do in a pinch! :) (She's been WONDERFUL to him!)

I love this post my friend. I LOVE FAMILY!
