Happy Birthday

Yep, today is my birthday, and it’s already been an awesome day with lots of phone calls and birthday wishes. Thanks to all!

This is the whole gang (minus Hayley who was napping and James and Daniel who hadn’t arrived yet) at my mom’s birthday last March. Now that was a birthday party! I’m so glad we celebrated her birthday with such a grand event.

The kids called Jess yesterday to find out what kind of cake I wanted for this evening. He told them a coconut cream pie. He knows me so well. But we’ll have to put a (one is enough) candle on it. Historians say the Greeks placed candles on cakes so the smoke could carry their wishes and prayers to the Gods. A lovely tradition for sure. 

I hope you all have a wonderful day. Take time to celebrate, birthday or not, every day gives us things to be grateful for.

Happy Birthday! My twinsy and I celebrated our birthday on October 6th. I like the idea of the smoke carrying our birthday wishes to the Gods because Lord knows there was enough smoke billowing off my Strawberry Supreme. Hope you enjoy your day!
