Four Birthdays and an Anniversary!
We are kicking off our busy season here with these 5 occasions in just a three week time span. Let the cake baking commence! #1John's Birthday Can it be that my "baby" is turning 21 this year? He has the best sense of humor and will MILK any experience for all it's worth. John is UDDERLY good-natured - and will not be happy in any way that I am comparing him to a cow. #2Jed's Birthday We are loving having Jed as a part of our family officially this year! He is a true foodie and we look forward to many shared culinary times and he can cook for us ANYTIME! (But I still don't know if we are ready for the black squid paste.) #3 Anne's Birthday Last year she had her celebration at the bridesmaid's luncheon. You could say it was a busy day with this first, then a family bar-b-que on our home deck, then her bachelorette party after that! But, that's Anne...always busy with the mindset that it CAN all fit in somehow! #4 One Year Anniversary!Can it really be that A and J have been married almost a year? #5 Finally, we top off all the celebrating with Wes' birthday. The best for last ?? Well...put it this way: by the time Anne and John had all those themed birthday parties through the years (I admit I went all out with AT HOME Diner parties, Pirate parties, Swim parties, 50's parties etc.), Wes slipped under the radar and was lucky he got a card and cake. Last year was the worst: his birthday was just a few days after the wedding and in my journal I wrote that we had leftovers and walked around the local lake! I've got to do better this year!
