We had a lovely visit from Gramma and P-Pa this past weekend (Casey's parents). Becky's birthday is on the 6th and Casey had a chorale concert last night, so she wanted to go to that for her birthday. Since she was here and since I never pass up an opportunity to throw a party, we through her a little birthday bash. Natalie was thrilled, she just looooooves birthday parties and singing Happy Birthday to people. I made her this amazing cake that my sister recommended, called Holy Cow Cake, from The Cake Mix Doctor, a book I borrowed from Julie. (Thanks Julie!) Holy Cow! is all I can say, it was that good. I also knitted her a chenille face cloth for her gift and it turned out lovely. I would post a link to the book where you can find that pattern, but there's a little one sleeping in the room where I left it and I can't remember the title. Sorry!

Here also are some pictures of the girls playing outside over the weekend. I'm just so happy it's Spring time! We had a couple of skinned knees, but no tears, so they must be happy too!


  1. What a fun day!

    That cake looks scrumptious!


  2. Yummy! Sweetest pictures of those little ones!
