Beatrice at four years!

Seems these days are filled with Birthdays and Funerals. Food is always better at birthdays.

Bea with a few of her many friends. Lucky girl. This party theme was "Ballet"!
The freeform dancing was amazing.

A little coloring to get in the spirit. Our little peanut!

Perfect Easter Cake

Those of you who know me know that I'm not one for posting recipes or pictures of plates of food as I'm really not much of a cook, BUT I did want to share this cake recipe from my dear friend Fran as it's the best cake for Easter.

Coconut Whipped Cream Cake

1 pkg. white cake mix with pudding (prepare as directed on pkg. Bake in 9x13" pan.)

1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 c. granulated sugar
2 cups angel flake cocount

Bake cake. Cool 15 min. Poke holes thru to pan. Meanwhile, combine milk, sugar, and 1/2 cup coconut in pan and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer one minute. Carefully spoon over warm cake, allowing liquid to soak down thru holes. Cool completely. Whip 1 pint whipping cream, add small amount of vanilla flavoring and sifted powdered sugar to taste. Spread over cake and sprinkle with remaining coconut. Chill overnight. Store in refrigerator.

Super easy and so delicious!!!
