CharlesInCharge Eats A Turtle

This is NOT pretty.
If you came looking for pretty
you better move along.
CharlesInCharge
is ONE YEAR old.
Yep-
ONE!
AND....
He ate a turtle for his
birthday!
See!  I TOLD YOU it is not pretty.
Poor turtle.
Do you want to see him
BEFORE
CharlesInCharge
got a hold on him?
Pretty cute, huh?
His Mama Mimi baked it for him.
It was truly a turtle cake...
with layers of pecans and caramel
and chocolate inside.

CharlesInCharge was thrilled...
The turtle?
Not so much.
I think the head came off
first...
probably a good thing...
no brain-no pain, as they say.

Had he been smart he would have
crawled away whilst he still
had the chance.
Too Late, Mr.Turtle!
Awww...
Mr. Turtle is 
All Gone!
Who ate him?
I think the evidence 
speaks for itself.
Now, if you are 
VERY GOOD 
and promise not to spit
in the mashed potatoes
when no one is looking,
tomorrow I will share 
a bit of our 
EARLY THANKSGIVING
that we enjoyed 
on Sunday.
I am off for the day
to enjoy 
my family.

Not sure WHAT happened
I could NOT post this
morning!  UGH!!

The turtle cake is really cute but it kind of grosses out with the green slobber and all. The boy is going to be one handsome lady killer some day! ~ Maureen

What an adorable cake! I'm very impressed that it was homemade. It looks so professionally done! I'm even more impressed with the fact that it had pecans, choc, and caramel inside. Yum! Turtles are one of my favorite choc candies. Charles looks very happy with his cake.
