Hey Kiddos!

Did you know when we went to Oregon my sister bought me a cute as a button vase with a flower frog?

The flower frog is a wire mesh top so that all you have to do is poke the flower stems in and you have a nice arrangement.  This was my birthday gift from her. 

On my birthday I came in from working with Hubby to the smell of cake in the oven. (Yum!!)  Serena was a busy little bee and baked my a cherry cake, and when Rosanna came over she decorated it while I dyed Serena's hair. 

I had a small fire to put out when it came time to blow out the candles!!  Why, I almost got a sunburn from the heat of it!! It really was quite something!  hahaha! 

Look!  I did get another Civil War block done!!

And another!! 

If I remember right this puts me at seven blocks completed - and nine that I need to complete in order to catch up.

And lastly - there should always be a lastly picture.

Here are Scarlett and Violet with their Del Taco sunglasses.  The lens are different colors  Fun is seeing the world through Red or Green sunglasses. 


  1. Holy cow that's a lot of candles! I couldn't have any this year because the fire company was unable to be on call. Sounds like you had a pretty nice birthday! And I love the picture of the girls in their shades.

  2. Hope you had a great birthday! What a gorgeous cake! Looks like a lot of fun. Your civil war blocks are awesome. I'm drooling.

  3. The cake looks great and delicious!
