Knightley saw a picture of a baseball cake on a dome cake box pan I have and decided that he wanted to make a cake just like it.  I asked him why he wanted to make the cake and he responded, “For Daddy, Daddy likes baseball.”  How could I say “no” to making a cake for daddy?  So I said we could in a little while.  Then he and Mason asked me three more times in the next 10 minutes to make a cake for Daddy.  I realized they were determined, so we stopped what we were doing and made a cake (from scratch, mind you).  It was lots of fun!  They often help me make things but this time they were extra good and extra happy.  And before Daddy came home we decided to clean the kitchen and make daddy a card so he would be extra happy about his baseball cake.  And both Knightley and Mason we so excited for Daddy to come home so they could surprise him with his cake and card!  Daddy loved it!!
