It is his one wish.

He may not admit it to you… thinking it would sound silly when we have four kids growing up and so many things on the “we’d love to create for them” list… but it’s true none-the-less.

It is the desire of my husband’s heart to have his very own tractor.

We have a bit of land out here in the “country”. (Least that’s what all of my suburbanite friends tend to dub our home town as.  Either “country” or “the sticks”.)  And yes… our land needs a bit of, um… attention.

But the real root of this desire is simple.  He is a boy.  A tractor is a big, powerful machine that can move things.   And he desperately wants to move things with the big, powerful machine.

It would bring him great joy, of this I am certain.

And seeing as how he happens to be, maybe, THE most unselfish person I’ve ever met in my life (yes, I am truly a very blessed woman… selfless AND smokin’ hot?  Just how I snagged THAT, I’ll never know) I want him to have his tractor, someday.

But, quite frankly, he’d refuse to buy one, right now, even if we had the extra money.  (Somethin’ to do with the kid list I mentioned earlier.)

So, when it was decided that I would make a tractor tire cake for my friend’s father (who bent over BACKWARDS for me one day, unexpectedly, when my car decided to throw a fit and leave me high and dry in my friend’s driveway, and who I owed BIG time ’cause he was like a little angel that day, fixing that beast right up and getting me back on the road)  my husband’s “inner boy” came out to play and he got all kinds of excited, showing me JUST how a tire REALLY looks.  (Helpful.  Mostly.)

And word on the street is the birthday boy liked his cake, too.  So, we’ve got happy boys all around.  Which makes ME happy.

And also makes me want to save my pennies for a shiny new tractor, for my man.  I’m thinking a tractor cake of his own may buy me some time, though.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say you’ve done a awesome job with this. Also, the…
