Birthday Cake for an Angel and a Thank You

The outpouring of love, support and prayers for my family and myself have been…..just incredibly heart warming.  It is so touching it brings tears to my eyes.  Many of you have become such wonderful friends.  I wanted to share with you what I did for Khaleeq with my family on his birthday.

I saw an AMAZING birthday cake a few days ago.  It was so bright and colorful.  Megan from Fowl Single File created it for her daughter’s 5th birthday party.  She’s posted everything from the invitations to the food table.  She has also posted links to the tutorials, much of what she made.  Make sure you check out her posts and let her know how awesome she did.

I gained some inspiration from Megan’s Rainbow Party.  I decided I wanted to make Khaleeq a cake in honor of his earthly birthday.  I wanted it bright and colorful. Khaleeq’s mom always decorated his room with very bright and cheery colorful themes.  He had Sponge Bob for a while and most recently, he had a Disney’s Cars theme.  So I used those colors and made Khaleeq’s cake bright yellow and blue with red frosting.

Keek is the name he called himself back when he could talk.  I hope he liked it.  It was nice to do that for him.  We all enjoyed his cake while watching an episode of his favorite cartoon….Sponge Bob!  Alie loved it.  I took pictures of her watching and eating cake but they did not come out so good.  It was so sweet to see Alie blow out his candle.  Being all the way out in AZ, when most of the rest of our family is in TX, is so hard.  My sister, her husband, Khaleeq’s sisters, his aunt and cousins, and my mom and dad all had a picnic at his grave.  April and Angie, Khaleeq’s sisters and his cousins all released a balloon with a special note to Khaleeq on it.  I wish we could of been there.  Tomorrow is Khaleeq’s heavenly birthday.  Thank you for your prayers and well wishes.  Please say prayer for my family tomorrow.  My heart aches for my sister, Nori.  I know tomorrow will be extremely hard on her.  If you have not read the original post from Khaleeq’s earthly birthday, you can read it here.

Thank you again.  I’m so proud to be a blogging mommy.  It’s not just about crafts, recipes and DIY projects.  It’s really a wonderful community of caring women.
