Birthday Time Again and Cake Recipe

But who can find a trustworthy man?
A righteous man who walks in his integrity-- Proverbs 20:6b, 7a

This month my Dad had a birthday! We celebrated with a special dinner (and cake!). :-)

This is a picture of my Dad and two younger brothers. :-) Here, my brother's were presenting Dad with their delightful gifts. :-)

Now as for the cake, we decided to make a nice and cool one. :-) The recipe is called: "Strawberry Soda Pop Cake". ( To add some color to the top of the cake, as well as a birthday message, I used dessert sprinkles! ) Here's the recipe for the cake. :-)
Strawberry Soda Pop Cake
1 box white cake mix
1 can strawberry soda pop (optional)
1 3 oz. box strawberry Jello (mixed with one cup hot water)
Bake cake in 13" x 9" pan according to directions on box. As soon as cake is removed from oven, punch holes in it with a fork. Pour soda pop over cake slowly so it will seep into holes. Then pour Jello mixture over cake in the same manner. Set
in refrigerator to cool. When cake is cool, ice with the following:
1 package instant vanilla pudding
1 cup cold milk
1 large tub of Cool Whip (at room temperature)
Mix pudding and milk. Fold in Cool Whip. Mix together and ice cake. Return to refrigerator. Serve cold. Cut in squares and serve.

Later in the day we played a game or two of Domino's, one of my Dad's favorite games. It was an enjoyable time.

Keep your eyes on Jesus!
