You say it's your birthday

So, this week is Hudson's first birthday. Awww. sniffle. My baby's all grown up. Let's review THE LOOK that got us into trouble in the first place..

you couldn't have resisted that look either, could you? Or the Dumbo ears??? You know you couldn't get past the big ears.

And this would be him now. I remember thinking how nice it was going to be to have a slightly shorter-haired dog for a change...sigh. I think it all started growing out when Sam began feeding him homemade turkey broth every day for two months..But would you look at the tail? Can you handle it?

I'm thinking of making him a birthday cake with this recipe (shutup).

Bacon Chicken Layer Cake

3 cups flour
1 T. baking powder
1/2 cup margarine, softened
6 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup corn oil
2 jars strained chicken baby food
2 cups finely shredded carrots
plain or vanilla yogurt
2 or 3 strips of bacon, fried crisp, then crumbled, or use bacon-flavored jerky strips, cut into bits.
Generously grease and flour two 8" round cake pans; set aside. Combine flour and baking powder; set aside. In a mixing bowl, beat softened margerine until smooth. Add eggs and corn oil; mix well. Add strained chiicken, and shredded carrots and mix until smooth. Add flour mixture and mix thoroughly. Pour batter into the 2 prepared 8" cake pans. Bake at 325° for 60 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes before removing from pans. Cool completely on wire racks.

Place one layer on a serving plate and spread yogurt over top. Place second layer on top, then spread yogurt on top and sides of entire cake. Sprinkle crumbled bacon or bits of jerky strips over top. Use "Pupperoni" sticks for candles.

maybe just a little one?
