My Birthday


A package arrived yesterday afternoon from my in-laws. Since no one was around to stop me, I opened it a day before my birthday. Inside was a wonderful apron and a much needed cookbook. Thank you!

The kids and I had a little enforced silliness time singing into wooden spoons.


Gram and Pop showed up with a brownie cake for me b/c Gram knew I wouldn't get one at the resturant (not the homemade kind, anyway). Whew, that's a lot of smoke.


Sierra takes a few licks from the candle ends.

Happy happy Birthday Mindi dear! Singing into the spoons sure brings me back! I find myself doing that too, nothing like a good cooking utensil microphone. Jeff likes to laugh at me for it, among many other things. :)

You're apron shot and silly-sing time seemed very Nie-esque. :) How are you enjoying your Macbook? Hope you had a wonderful birthday!

I'm glad you had a fun birthday Mind! Looking at that pic of Sierra at the bottom reminds me of how little they still are (she and Cole)! Sometimes I forget that, with them being the oldest, you know?
