We had a small birthday party for mom yesterday… her birthday was Tuesday, but she and George made plans to go out for dinner with friends on her birthday so we had her party on Saturday. Karl had to work and Kevin was sick so it was just my family, my new sister in law Crystal, a couple of friends and mom and George. We had a good time.
I made her birthday cake. I had a little problem with it when I started making it, I found weevils in the flour….YUCK! So I had to stop making the cake and go buy flour. So the cake was baked one hour before the party. When I took it out of the pan it stuck and when I frosted it I was able to make it look normal so no one knew it fell apart, the icing melted when I frosted it…..but when we ate the cake it was still warm and tasted sooooooo good! My kids for some reason didn’t know that you put real carrots in carrot cake, funny kids!
I gave mom a stack of my hand made cards, which she has come to expect every year now for her birthday…and a framed piece of my artwork, which she said would go perfect in a room that George has with a patchwork quilt with Sun Bonnet Sues on it.
It may have been a small party, but we had a good time!
