Birthday Bash #2

Last night had yet another birthday celebration.  My wonderful sis-in-law, Betsi, and I share the same birthday so she was able to come into town so we could all celebrate together!  We always have a fun time together and tonight was no exception.  I am very blessed to have in-laws who love me unconditionally and have always considered me one of the family. 


The laugh of the evening definitely revolved around the cake. 


My precious mother-in-law worked very hard all afternoon preparing a birthday cake (and icing) from scratch.  However, you can tell that the Food Network will probably not be contacting her anytime soon to be highlighted on Cake Boss! Nonetheless, I will say that even though it didn’t look the best, it tasted delicious. 




After a delicious steak dinner and a round of cake we opened presents.  You can tell from this picture that we are both spoiled rotten.


Betsi received jewelry and a sweater from Mackaylan, Mickey and myself, some exercise apparel, a ring, and a pair of diamond earrings from her parents! Needless to say, she was thrilled!



As for myself, I received some clothes, a hat, the curtains (which are on backorder), crib sheet, and lamp that match the bedding we have purchased for the nursery, and my Becky Higgins Project 365 kit! Woo hoo! 


And, of course, Mackaylan just loved all of the boxes! 


Today we are home for a snow day so I am looking forward to digging into my Project 365 kit and getting started.  Thank goodness, I think I have a picture for everyday so far this year.  Now, I just have to get the pictures out of the computer and into my binder.  I will keep you posted on how this project is going…

Happy Monday!
