a girl turns 7, a guy turns thirty something...

1:12 AM

We celebrated two birthdays this weekend.  It really is a double bonus to have two people in your family born on the same day...I only have to do one party!  Ha!

painted nails

Saturday couldn't have been more lovely for a birthday party.  I took Emma G and three of her friends to get their nails painted at the local salon.  I think they loved it.  Then it was home to prepare.  I kind of go mad throwing birthday parties, because I absolutely love celebrating someone's life.  The menu was homemade pizza, a veggie tray, cake, grapes, and dark chocolate truffles (more on this later including a giveaway).  I always think in the midst of all the baking and everything that I will take awesome birthday photos.  The truth is that I never have time.  Mark my words, next year I'm going to plan ahead and ask for help in the pre-party prep, so I'm not running around like a crazy woman!

Many thanks to our friends and family who celebrated with us and for those who recognized my craziness and pitched in to help get the food out.  I still can't believe my baby is now 7.  I think my other baby is now counting backward rather than forward. {Smile.}  I love these two!
