Pierce is Ten

Last week Pierce turned 10.  Gone are the days when I crafted theme cakes for him.  This year he said he is too old for that.  Instead, he wanted a "caramel Frappuccino" cake.  I crafted a two layer cake with espresso and caramel.  It had structural issues, but it tasted good.
Pierce loves electronic gadgets.  He has a particular fondness for old Polaroid cameras and old telephones.  His favorite food is anything with salted caramel.  He still loves anything dealing with robots.

In addition to a couple of small things, Pierce got a mummy sleeping bag for his birthday.  Now he'll be all set next time we go backpacking. 
He has wanted a mummy sleeping bag since the twins got theirs for their birthday, so he was pretty excited.  We'll have to plan a backpacking trip soon, before it gets much colder.

I'm taking a little blogging break, but I hope to see you some time next week!

The cake looks delicious! I don't think I had even heard of frappacino when I was 10. lol Pierce sounds like a great kid and I love his eclectic interests. Have a good break!

What a great birthday, and he has good taste for cake. I like a mummy bag when it is snowy out.I have a sweater I put over the opening to keep the warm in, and a few times to keep the snow out sleeping under the stars.

What a difference a year makes! He asked for a very sophisticated and adult cake! Phil loves salted caramel too. Anne is 10 as well, and that is where we really saw a big change. I don't remember Pierce wearing glasses. Seems more and more kids need them lately. Maybe over half of the classrooms? Perhaps nowadays we are detecting eye problems much better than we used to. I hope you are O.K!! Maybe you are just very busy right now and need a break.

So that's why I haven't heard from you this week. =) What a cute boy--and I bet the cake was fabulous. There's nothing better than these little ones in our lives, eh--and the chance to truly marvel over their wonderfulness.

We got a heavy frost here in southwestern Ohio where we live at Brookville. I would want a heavy sleeping bag if I had to be outside now. We still have our original Polaroid Land Camera. The inlaid leather pieces have degenerated to almost like dust but you can still see the leather. I assume it still works but the reason we gave it up was the cost of the film.
