All Aboard the Birthday Cake!

I've been neglecting my blog lately. I have no good excuse, other than being busy with work and family, and the holiday season, of course. But, we're all busy this time of year, and, honestly, I don't have it nearly as bad as some. So, I promise to try to do better in the future, and I'm looking forward to getting caught up on all your blogs and seeing what you've been up to lately!

 Now, I want to share this awesome train cake, made by my sister, Paula, for her grandson Jaxson's 2nd birthday. I've shared some of her cakes in the past...and I think this is one of her best! Everyone loved it, especially Jaxson!







And here is the birthday boy himself, my great-nephew, Jaxson Lee! He is absolutely adorable!!


 
I bought an early Christmas present for myself - a new sketch pad, colored pencils and oil pastels. I've been in the mood to sketch and draw, rather than paint. As many of you know, drawing is entirely different from painting, and I haven't done a lot of it...not since I was a teenager, so we'll see where this takes me.
 

 
I truly hope you've all been well and enjoying your December so far.
Until next time,
Cindy

What a fantastic cake. I bet Jaxson was thrilled with it. I can see there is a train passion going on by his sweater in the pics. He is a gorgeous young man.
