Happy Birthday Kelly!

Well this year there is no trip to Utah sans kids, but the kids and I did manage to pick up a few things for Kelly (thanks to some last minute shopping).  Hopefully they will be things that help her enjoy her day.  What am I saying, she provided the list for the last minute shopping so I think they should do the trick.

I thought about organizing a little get together for her birthday, but too much indecision and now here it is the actual day.  I'm not very good at putting together parties, seems someone else in the house is the queen of that.

We're going to go out for lunch (another decision pending on the location), probably open some presents when the girls get home from school, and then maybe enjoy some cake later.  Another lame thing, Kelly is making her own birthday cake.  Not lame for her, since she prefers her own cakes (and who wouldn't when they are as good as they are), but just lame that I can't provide it for her.

So pretty low key, but no less special.  Happy Birthday Sweetheart!  I hope you enjoy a good day.

Happy birthday, Kelly! I can't believe it's been a year since you came to visit! I've been looking at your birthday marked on my calendar all week...unfortunately, my scrapbooking stuff is still all packed somewhere, and I didn't get any card off to you. I'm sure you'll make yourself an amazing cake. Have a great one! I wish we could be there, to help you eat your cake, and celebrate!

Thanks, Janel. I'm sure if you had your supplies handy I would have gotten a great card. This is fine. This last year has seemed so long. It feels like two or three years since I was there.

The cake did turn out great, tasting that is. It had a little bit of a level issue but who notices that when you're shoveling it into your mouth? No one.

Mickey (and Kade) took me to Chili's for lunch. I had a great salad called the quesadilla explosion. (I got it without cilantro.) I highly recommend it if you like tex-mex. I would have loved to go to Cafe Rio but there's not one close by. I'll have to fondly remember my dinner from last year.

Yesterday I finished my gift to myself. I will report on it soon. I got a lot of compliments on it today. It turned out SO cute.
