Happy Birthday Mom!

I am so bad at posting, its ridiculous! So my dear mother turned ... old on October 1st. We aren't aloud to say how old she was turning because she said it was depressing. She's not even that old people! And so as tradition goes, we had a family birthday party for her. Her meal of choice? Pizza! For those of you who don't already know this, my Grandmother is an amazing cook, but I LOVE when she makes pizza! On this occasion she made chicken alfredo pizza.
So good! Makes my mouth water just looking at the pictures again. Emily had to run to play practice or something, so she hurried and ate and then gave my mom a little solo of Happy Birthday on her way out the door. She's a nut! But it was cute. I think we'll keep that tradition going as well. Then it was cake and ice cream time! My mom of course picked the one cake that my grandpa is completely addicted too. (couldn't get this picture to turn, sorry!)

It's a white cake, with cream cheese or white frosting, and coconut on top. Weird I know, but it is yummy! And for presents my mom recieved from me and Trent this scrapbook photo organizer box. It is amazing if I do say so myself. You write on a card what the pics are of and the date and then who is in them and then put them in their own little box inside the big box and then when she goes to scrapbook them, she just takes out the small compartment and slides the rest of the boxes back so she is ready next time. Amazing, I know! My grandparents gave her some of this bath lotion something-er-other... she loves it and uses it every day. I hope that she had a great birthday! Love ya mom!

My you post a lot about birthdays! Andrew is sitting here on my lap giving me a running commentary of the pictures. "Look Grandma! Look Grandma's cake! Look Grandma blow cake! Look Oma's cake! Look Mel! Look Cassie!" Haha. How about instead of me coming to Duchesne to go to the corn maze there, you come with mom on the weekend of the 24th and we can all go again. Mom is coming out to watch the kids so I can have an anniversary date.

I don't have much else to talk about besides birthdays. I will try and find something worth writing about and then blog about it this week. That would be great if I came with mom... I hope she is okay with that. I guess we'll see. But a corn maze in Logan would be so much fun! And to see the kids... that would be the best!
