Oh, and we dropped in at the Arkansas Treasurer of State where the boys each got to hold $450,000 in cash. Don't they look excited?
On Trotwood's birthday, we always celebrate with balloons! He loves it and I'm thinking we are probably going to have to implement this tradition for Little Dorrit's birthdays.
For his cake, Trotwood requested a vanilla cake with strawberry filling. I tried using a Swiss meringue buttercream for the first time and it turned out okay. I still need to experiment with more meringue buttercreams...and just cake in general.
