{p,h,f,r} Mary's Candles!!!


~ Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life ~ with the lovely ladies at Like Mother, Like Daughter

A little out of order...
 To go along with our special treat, I made a pretty little cake for Mother Mary's birthday. It was only one layer of a regular two layer cake. Cupcake has been fascinated with blowing out candles since her birthday and she was beyond thrilled to get to blow out some more. I only had a little frosting to spare so I made just a few little tiny roses on top, but I didn't really think about how little frosting I had to use when I started so the placement got a little wonky. If you don't know this by now, you should... camera angles are a blogger's best friend! This angle makes it look a lot nicer than it did in person.


She had so much fun and even sang Happy Birthday to Mary before she blew out the candles. I think we relit them for her about oh...8 or 10 times. And you see what I meant about those wonky roses.

I'm not sure what was going on in this picture but it makes me smile!


The epitome of "happy!"
Today we are celebrating Sunshine's name day since she's named for Our Lady. Happy Feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary!


  1. Cute pictures! Happy name day to Sunshine!

  2. Cupcake really loves to blow out candles!! :-) You should get some trick candles for her to blow out; I bet she would really enjoy that! :) Happy Feast Day Sunshine! We share a feast day month! I celebrated my feast day last Sunday. :)

    1. I'm afraid that she might only get frustrated with the trick candles because as much as she loves blowing them out, she also loves celebrating that accomplishment. Happy Name Day to you!

    2. Ah..that makes sense. Thank you!! :)

  3. Oh so cute! Her faces are just priceless Charlotte!
