She’s as cute as a button; her parents are pleased as punch.
He’s old as Woody Woodpecker; and we partied like it was 1940.
Plus the lovely grandparents, somewhere between their platinum and silver anniversaries!
WOW! What a time we’ve just had!
I have happy news all around, this past friday we celebrated my step father’s 70th birthday and then Saturday afternoon my sister-in-law gave birth to their first child! Our family is just bursting with love and fun, I can’t help but make time to share some of it here.
Congratulations to Jason and Amanda, and many more happy birthdays to you Peter!
This is a photo of my handsome husband (one of three proud new uncles) holding baby girl for the first time. (And just look at that wonderful crochet hat which a crafter donated to the hospital as part of their basket of tuques for newborns. It’s almost as lovely as she is!)
My step-father LOVES trains, and carrot cake. So this is the birthday cake I made just for him! ..I alway think of care and thought that I put into the cakes I make as my most meaningful token of appreciation for each family celebration.
This is the birthday boy!
These are my wonderful parents-in-law on their wedding anniversary this past August with the caramel cake that I make for them.
My mother-in-law has a particular weakness for caramel (to the point where I never see a container of it that I don’t think of her!) so I made my first “Southern Caramel Cake” in her/their honour this past summer (with homemade granola and baked pear). She was tickled pink..
Love to them all!
