a super birthday celebration

We had a fun time celebrating Dax's 3rd birthday. Dax picked his theme and we ran with it:)He also chose the menu of cheeseburgers, pineapple and strawberries and Cheetos. Mommy threw a few extra items of her own in there too:) Steve's whole family from Cincinnati came to celebrate with us.

Dax wanted chocolate cake so I made and decorated a zucchini chocolate cake. I used this recipe . I believe this was the recipe that my mom used to make years ago and it is one of my all time favorites. It makes such a moist cake.

Hey. This is Mariah. I really wish that I could have been there with you to celebrate Dax's birthday. He is so sweet, and growing SO big. I wish that I could have been there to make the chocolate zucchini cake. I made my mom an awesome one of those for her birthday. They are so moist and good. We topped it off with drizzling rich chocolate frosting. I bet the superman theme was awesome and he was very excited. I am so sorry once again that I could not have been there. Happy Halloween! What are the boys going to be? ~Cousin Mariah
