Faith's Birthday

The traditional seat of honor for the birthday girl/boy.

After receiving binoculars and a subscription to Birds and Blooms, Faith was farther encouraged in the study of botany and ornithology by Dad's bringing out The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady.

Faith is presented to her cake since her cake is too big to present to her.

(Yes, there is a story behind this "big" cake. You see, Faith plans to be a spinster, and so I thought I might as well make her a wedding cake now, since she will never be getting one in the future. ;-) Actually, the real story is that Dad got these wedding cake kits in at work and brought one home for me to practice decorating.)

I inform Conrad, in no uncertain terms, that he is not allowed to shake, tip, drop, or otherwise damage my many hours of work.

Her cake or my cake? I'm really not sure.

Derrick stops by for wood just at the right time (funny how people do that) to get cake instead.

Derrick: "I'm correct in thinking that this is one of those cakes that we were selling at Denver Wholesale, right???"

Very dubious about eating cake that has been frozen in a warehouse for several years.

He got his wood too.

And while he was here, he thought he might as well inspect the building site too. :-)


I didn't have time to post a lot of pictures from the building process, but next time you too should have the chance to inspect the progress.

Until then,
