Happy 7th Birthday Cooper

today Cooper is 7 - officially a senior

everything for his cake has been bought except the flour - went to two stores and neither had brown rice flour. also had problen getting carob chips but did get them. using same recipe as last year. for 2nd year in a row got cooper  some frozen pizza for his special dinner.

he will get a couple of toys but because of mandy he won''t be able to get what we wanted to get him. were thinking of getting him a session of swim therapy. there is a local swim spa but want to check it out first. cooper loved it when he won  a session twice and now that he has been limping more due to arthritis slowly setting in it will due him some good.

normally would not leave a new foster home along so long so soon after getting her but cooper will get to spend the day alone with us. mandy will get to have some of the cake. 

i made a birthday page which i will post at sbf

 also made a birthday page which was used for a challenge on 2 other sites - one was a birthday chalenge and one was a tempalte challenge. not sure if will post this one to sbf as it is sort of simple page.  this page uses older kit by OTBDS called jubilee

1tsp baking soda
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup shredded carrots
1 tsp. vanilla
1/3 cup honey
1 egg

Mix flour and baking soda. Add remaining ingredients. Pour into greased 8" round cake pan and bake at 350° for 30 minutes

Banana Cream Cheese Frosting

1 Ripe Banana
6 ounces non-fat cream cheese
1/2 tsp vanilla

Mash the banana with a potato masher in a bowl. In another bowl incorporate the vanilla with the cream cheese. Fold in the banana with the cream

cheese mixture. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Sprinkle with carob chips and enjoy!
