This February 16th Birthday has caused US a LOT of anxiety.
It turned out okay.
So I decided to play Lisa’s from A Long Road to China Black and White game.
Okay I cheated a little….
Shhh! Don’t tell her. Maybe she won’t even notice.
Tuesday we celebrated Margaret’s birthday just as we always have.
THIS TIME WE ADDED JUST A LITTLE MORE CHOCOLATE TO GET US THROUGH!
See how Brain Celebrates the Hot Fudge?
It is home-made you know.
You can find the recipe on my cousin Anne’s blog.
Her blog is amazing and Simply delicious!
BUT BE CAREFUL!!!
It can be a little dangerous for your health.
It is helpful that she throws in little hints….Like don’t forget to breath…
Which I personally find very useful.
If you know anything about us or read any of my cousin’s blogs you will know…
We have a little thing about chocolate.
Because my father’s birthday is today…February 17….We have all been very worried about just how we where to get through the week.
For Margaret’s Birthday I made a little chocolate.
Chocolate Cake…with Chocolate Frosting…and Home-Made Hot Fudge.
Once we were drunk from our very important chocolate fix
we decided to take a group picture.
We put the camera on the tripod and figured out
how to set the timer
In this picture not only did Margaret have her eyes closed,
Alex and Brian left to soon and Matthew started pinching Kathryn.
In this picture Brain is going to cry, Stephen looks like he just woke up from his nap
and I am not there!
After about 1600 times……We finally got it and it was just
DAY ONE DOWN
None of us wanted to go through this day alone so we got together for one of our
father’s three favorite meals.
Aubry came and brought her mom.
It was really a great idea!
The men finished up their business meeting outside.
Aubry and Nana had a meeting of their own inside.
Even though there were tears and laughter………There was a lot of LOVE and DONUTS!
Chocolate ones of course.
You know what my dad would really like for this birthday?
He would love it if you asked Congress to support the Lung Cancer Mortality Reduction Act of 2009 by signing the petition. It really is that important.
