27.

Happy Birthday to my twinkie soul!!! Since it's her birthday today, you know we are both 27 :)


my parents sent me spa day money which is always lovely but the sweeter gift was this book. I couldn't think of any better way to start each day.


"When we call on God, He bends down His ear to listen, as a father bends down to listen to his little child." - Elizabeth Charles

Even though I'm not a tot anymore, i told my pappa i'm so thankful he always listens. 


this is the first year in 27 that our pappa doesn't buy me & marianne two sets of birthday balloons because it's the first year we don't get to spend our birthday together. :( 

Thank God for Skype! here's a shot of me on the other end my family took yesterday. (look at me cheesin'-- i was so happy to be talking to my family all at once)

i love you birthday girl twinkie!!! 

ps. my momma made our Big Bird cake in the first photo. Last night my husband came home right before midnight blowing a party whistle and carrying a cookie cake that had cookie monster on it and a birthday hat for me. 

sweetest of all, it's the first year he gave me a birthday card that said wife


please wish my better half a happy birthday too! xo 

you can see why my tummy was aching when we skyped yesterday-- check out all my momma's delicious hors D'oeuvres! it's what marianne requested for dinner, another tradition we have-- momma makes both of us whatever we want so you can imagine in our household on our birthdays it was always twice the food! and always twice the love.

Happy Birthday Micaela love! That book is great, I'm sure it will brighten each day. It must have been tough not being with your sister and family but it sounds like your hubby was very thoughtful and I'm glad you got to be with them virtually. x

Happy birthday, Micaela! It's been so great getting to know you better. You and your sister and so cute in these photos. I love the look on the face of your party guest as she inspects that big bird cake. I'm pretty sure my mom made us a cookie monster cake with those same molded cake pans. Have a great birthday week!
