Cake and Ice Cream

It has become our tradition to have cake and ice cream with close family and friends - those special people that get the honor of eating the "fancy cake." This is usually very low key and I was extra-grateful for that last night as I had reached the end of my usefulness. I was worn out and hurting (did I mention I had slipped on the ice while decorating in the morning and had spent the rest of the day dealing with the injury? Yeah, coudn't have picked a worse day for that to happen) and all I could manage was feeding the kids before everyone arrived then attaching myself to the couch for most of the party. All right - on to the last of the party photos!

Kaitlyn told me that her favorite thing of the day was blowing out the candles. Anyone else wondering what she wished for?

In between cake and presents the kids and the grandparents (mostly Grandpa Dennis and Dave) had a lot of fun playing with the left-over balloon swords and each other.

"Look at all this stuff!" Kaitlyn said at the end of the night. And I agree - that's a pretty nice pile of loot. Kaitlyn says Thanks Everyone!
