I love that date!  How fun it would be to be born today at 10:10 AM!

IMG_7894Anyway, Monday was my birthday.  Nurse Maribel brought us doughnuts.  That was so nice!  Then my Sammi showed me once again how sweet her heart is.  She disappeared for a while and then she explained what she was doing.  In our house I pay a penny per pinecone that the girls pick up.  So Sammi had gone outside and picked up 150 pinecones so she could buy me a cake and some icing.  I did take her to the store, but I didn’t allow her to buy the cake and frosting.  She bought candy instead.  She came home and made me this cake.  What a sweet birthday gift!  Mama stopped by later with 2 dozen brightly colored cupcakes!  I didn’t get a picture, but it was really sweet.  We had lots of sweets that day!



They are digging a huge hole in the lot behind us, so everyone has been in the trees looking over the fence!   It’s been really nice outside just means we have been spending a lot of time outdoors.  We thought this was cool – a cicada emerging.



My beautiful babies:

Saturday night Rice Krispy treats.  Lizzy came up with the idea of adding drops of color to the marshmallows – very festive!
