Great Cake Day!



I sort of cheated. I didn't make my cake. It's from a celebration/shower that my church had for Rory this Sunday. We joined this church towards the end of my pregnancy and several sweet ladies have been dying to have cake and punch ever since. Neither Mr. Mandolyn nor I had been to church regularly in well over ten years, so finding somewhere that felt like home seemed like it would be a near-impossible task. Except that it wasn't. We only tried one church in our great quest, but we like this place a lot. It's a good fit for us. It's pretty small, and very close-knit without being pushy or overwhelming. We found out recently that our minister and his wife have Clomid twins, after four miscarriages. It's not like I consider infertility experience a requirement, but it sure makes things more meaningful then to hear our baby introduced to the congregation as an answer to prayers. We've heard over and over again what a blessing she is and how they love to celebrate babies. Amen, folks.

Happy Great Cake Day!

I still have to go buy some ingredients for my cake. Decided since it's school holidays, I don't have any excuse not to make on myself! :) Thanks for your comment on my blog.

mmmmmm! What a great day. Our church did the same for us (we joined just after getting pregnant!) and it's so nice.
