Birthday Bonanza!

If you know my family, you know that fall is an extra busy time of year for us. We celebrate 3 of my kids' b-days in November, following Ryan in October and with Colin on deck for December.
Here are some pictures:

This weekend was spent in a domestic flurry, since we have a tradition in our family that the birthday celebrant chooses dinner on their special day, and of course the cake.
Brenna chose homemade chicken noodle soup. She and I spent a lovely afternoon together, cooking. She is learning to chop veggies and did a great job. She definitely inherited her dad's love of cooking! Desert was a chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting. YUMMO!

Saturday was Jimmy's birthday. He's had a lousy cold and spent a few days home from school with an ear infection. Well poor kid, this is just the type of thing that gets his asthma going. He spent the day miserable, needing a nebulizer treatment. He managed a smile before his cake and presents though. His cake was a Boston Cream Pie cake:

Both of these cakes are from this book - it makes box cake mixes into amazing deserts:

And since I never shared a pic of Tom Tom from his special day:

Lots more to share, but it's getting late here. Go check out Dreamgirls . We're fortunate to have Midnight Oil Scrapbook Designs sponsor us with TWO big prize packages! You won't want to miss this! While you're there, take a peek at our DT call - we're looking for a few new people to add to the team.

Talk to you all soon!
