Braydon Turns 3

My grandson, Braydon, turned three years old last week and had his birthday party this past weekend.  The saying that 'time flies' certainly holds true.  He had his little friends over for snacks and cake, along with their parents, and his family.  My daughter made him a beautiful Thomas the Tank Engine birthday cake.  Braydon is crazy about Thomas and all his friends.

I don't know if he made any wishes before blowing out the candles.  

I brought along a snack, Rainbow Jello.  One of my co-workers brought Rainbow Jello to a Christmas potluck and agreed to share the recipe with me.  I can't share it further, but I see very similar versions online.  It's very easy to make, just takes a bit of time.  It's fun and colorful and opens up possibilities to other versions (e.g. the colors of New Orleans' Mardi Gras, Easter colors, Hallowe'en, etc.).  I think it turned out pretty well.  The marks on the slice on the piece on the right were from trying to cut the first piece out of the pan. 

I got some knitting done on the weekend, even finished a project.  That'll be next time....

That cake is amazing and the jello is pretty darned awesome too. I didn't even know that cake was a cake at first.

Wonderful cake, and the jello is unbelievable. Bet it took a big bunch of time and patience.

A Happy Birthday for all!
