"Our birthdays are....

...feathers in the broad wing of time." ~Jean Paul Richter

Yesterday was Chris's birthday! Madelyn thought he should get the day off work *because* it was so! (Wishful thinking from a sweet 9 year-old heart!) In celebration of daddy's birthday...the children hung signs up throughout the house...

While Chris was at work, I made a yellow cake, if you click that link you will find a recipe..but it's a smidge different from the recipe I used. :) I also made peanut butter frosting for on top! Madelyn and Xavier enjoyed the beaters from the mixer! (Jaxson, still quite under-the-weather was napping.)...

X informed me that it wasn't right to only have four candles on the cake because "daddy isn't turning four, he's 32!" ;)

When Chris got home from work, we enjoyed a meal (requested by the birthday-boy-himself) of hamburger stroganoff over homemade noodles. Later in the evening, some close family came by to celebrate with some cake and icecream! We had a nice evening of chatter, laughing and celebration of thirty-two years of beautiful life God has given my Christopher. I am so grateful!

If you remember, please say a prayer for Jaxson as he battles this bit of fever and cold. He's had it for three days now and I am quite sure he is *sick* of being *sick*! :)

Just a quick stopping-in for me today...
So glad you took the time to come by for a *hello*!

  3. Two of my girls had fever and a cough about 3 weeks lasted about 4 or 5 days and really wiped them out, too. Might have been the same thing.

  5. Good Morning, Katy,
    Thank you for stopping by my blog and signing on as a follower. It looks like a wonderful family birthday party.

    I hope you little guy gets better soon. Lots of kids at school have had influenza and strep throat. He should be getting over it by now.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend. ~Natalie
