So Baby Girl (aka Adorable) is 18. Mike and Lovely came home to join the festivities and all was wonderful. We had our own little family celebration with Abbie's favorite chocolate cake:
And she blew out all 18 candles with one breath! I almost missed the picture, but y'all were in my mind and I just couldn't disappoint you by missing another photo op.
Then, unbeknownst to Abbie, we had planned a party for after the evening service last night. We expected the youth group and a few other adults, and wound up with around 60 people. Our friend Karyn made the cake, which included 18 mice, some coming out of the cheese:
This woman is so creative, she amazes me with the ideas for cakes she comes up with.
Here's Abbie being totally surprised. . .
On her real birthday, which is Tuesday, we are going to the March for Life in DC. She has always wanted to do that, and we can finally fit it in the schedule this year. We're taking her friend Boo with us and praying for no rain and something warmer than this morning's 7 degrees.
So the birthdaying goes on and on and by the end of it all, I will need to do a solid eight hours on the elliptical to work off all the chocolate cake.
Be thankful ~
