Jerry brought home roses for my birthday.
I requested Saltgrass Steakhouse for my birthday lunch, so we went after church with my parents! It was so very yummy - I had to get a picture so I could remember how yummy it was.
Then Aaron turned 9! I cannot believe my firstborn is already 9. Time really does go so quickly. He and Ethan alternate years having a party, so this year he just had a family over for some play and pizza. He requested a Resees cake, so I made him a chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting with chopped Resees on top. It was amazingly good. So good I think we have to throw out the rest of it so that I do not eat every last bite...
He decided to spike his hair into a mohawk just for his big day. Lovely, no?
Finally, one of my grandmothers (my mom's mom) turns 80 this weekend! Her whole family is throwing a huge (like over 100 guests!) surprise party for her. I really hope she doesn't have a heart attack from such a shock at her age... ;) Anyway, with all the adoption stuff going on right now, there was no way we could make a trip to Wisconsin to be there with her, but I did have the privilege of making her a chair back cover for her big day! I embroidered "Birthday Girl" on one side and "Kiss me, I'm 80!" on the other. I hope she likes it!
