You heard all about my romantic husband's surprise date for me. That was Saturday, the day BEFORE my birthday.
The next day was my actual birthday and I spent the day letting my husband make me steak and then sorta picked up the house a bit and answered facebook birthday well wishes. I decided I really needed a cake for my birthday and even though I didn't have red food coloring I thought I would try a Red Velvet cake.
Just about that time, a vehicle pulled in. And from the back of the mini van came my mom and my sister singing happy birthday to me.
My mom and sister came bearing cake.
Please note that I am not 311 years old. My mom had a three candle, a one candle and I had a single candle to make my correct age. My boys loved teasing me I was 311 though.
I had my mom snap a photo of all of us on my birthday.
Please excuse the clean laundry piled in the chair. And the seeds in the other chair.....
But I rather love this photo anyhow.
I happened to catch a cute picture of Blaine, my sister's newest baby. How can you NOT love those big ol cheeks?
But I KNOW I will be framing this one......
