Happy Birthday to Me!

Tuesday (Veteran's day, 11-11) was my 29th birthday. It started out as a typical day. I was stuck at home all day, with both kids, and no car. And to top it off all my friends forgot all about it. Needless to say I was kinda bummed. But then my dad and brother came out, about an hour and a half drive for them, and we had a great visit. My dad had gotten me a barbie ballerina Christmas ornament, and L told us that it was beautiful just like mommy. Doesn't that just make your heart melt! Adam got home from work early bringing presents and a cake. He was on a mission for my birthday cake. See I follow this fantastic blog called Cake Wrecks, and it revolves around just hideous cakes and cupcakes. It's awesome! So Adam was determined to find the ugliest cake he could. He did it! He brought home 2 "turkey" cupcakes. I have added pictures below to show you just how bad it did look! The heads actually slid off, and there was so much frosting that we scraped some off and now I have enough to frost a small cake or brownies! Adam did get me 2 tool boxes to help organize all my crafting supplies! Fantastic! I did get to celebrate with my mom then the next day. It was fun too! She got my a brand new winter coat. It is fantastic! It actually fits and has all the buttons unlike my other 2 winter coats. Oh, and did I mention that it is actually warm! She also made me a Boston Cream Pie, my all-time favorite!! It did turn out to be a great birthday after all.

My dad, brother, L , D, and me celebrating my birthday!

Wow... that was a massacre...

reminds me of lyrics from an Elvis Costello song "St Stephen's Day Murders":

And the carcass of the beast left over from the feast,
May still be found haunting the kitchen.
