"Happy 7th B-day Prissy"

well.... 7 years ago today {actually 7 yrs ago @ about 6:45 this morning} I helped God out with my first little miracle!!!!!!! "Priss" as I have affectionately called her since shortly after we brought her home has been a dream come true for me!!! I pray blessings over you life my darling one, may you grow strong in the Lord & always stay as precious as you are right now!!!!! We started our morning the way we do on every b-day- by me singing "today it is your birthday & I sing to let you know, that you will be queen for the day, whatever you say goes..." & by me telling her the story of her birth & how tiny she once was, but how I promise that "YES she may one day be as big as me & YES she may borrow any high heels that she pleases!" {I cry EVERY single time I tell her the story!!!!}. Today she has chosen the dinner menu & wants Paula Deen's ooey gooey butter cake- YUMM-O!!!!!!! and.... she opened this American Girl wardrobe:

...and we have been putting away her little wooden refrigerator & stove set {yes I got misty eyed} & turned that little nook into "Lucy & Lanie's room".


1 18 1/4-ounce package yellow cake mix
1 egg
8 tablespoons butter, melted

1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
8 tablespoons butter, melted
1 16-ounce box powdered sugar

1 cup toffee bits & 1 cup butterscotch chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine the cake mix, egg, and butter and mix well with an electric mixer. Pat the mixture into the bottom of a lightly greased 13 by 9-inch baking pan. Prepare Filling

In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the eggs, vanilla, butter, & 1 cup butterscotch bits & 1 cup toffee bits and beat together.

Next, add the powdered sugar and mix well. Spread over cake batter and bake for 40 to 50 minutes. Make sure not to over bake as the center should be a little gooey.

TA DA!!!!
