happy 1/2 bday.....what ??..

so yesterday tanner woke up and was sobbing in his bed. i went in to see what was wrong and he said "I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU FORGOT MY HALF BIRTHDAY"....what??? we have NEVER celebrated anyone's half bday. why are we starting now? ...anyways, so i try to be a nice mother and console him and apologize profusley for missing this terribly important day. i tell him that i will make it up to him and i will make him a cake. this immediatley makes him smile and he is able to (finally) get ready for school. (on a side note: about two weeks ago tanner asked me if he was 61/2 and i said no, but on january 20th you will be. i had no idea he was going to remember and that he expected a party for it)...so on with my story, well for the past few days i have had a sweet tooth so that is also why i was so easily convinced to give in to tanner. so i go to the internet to my trusty paula deen and print up her recipe for "is it really better then sex?" cake. the ingredients are enough to make your mouth water. yellow cake, pineapple cooked in sugar, vanilla pudding, and whipped cream (real). well, the dessert was a hit and i had a very happy 61/2 year old :)
