I have discovered that birthdays are good days to make kids get ready for school quick. All four kids came knocking at our bedroom door at 6:45am. We told them there would be no giving or receiving of presents until they were all dressed, with shoes on and hair done. I have NEVER seen them get dressed so quick. I'm sure Abby did a superman trick and dressed faster than is humanly possible.

Here at Morling College we have a tradition of sharing a cake with the other children who live nearby. We call it "Playground Birthday cakes". We have so many children on campus this year that I felt the need for more than one cake. I ended up making three cakes. The first ones are a pair, intended to represent the number 11. Abby requested "A sour worm cake", so here's what I made.

|This is using up the leftover icing and ensuring there is enough cake for everyone.|
