Mittu, my daughter-in-law, had a birthday yesterday but I didn’t have a chance to mention it on the blog then. She and Jason celebrated with the family last night. Unfortunately most of my photos didn’t turn out very well — I might need to wear my reading glasses while taking pictures these days! But we had a fun time — got pizza, “Face-timed” with Jeremy, got into discussions of some of the boys’ childhood exploits, had presents, cake, and ice cream. All in all a good day. 🙂
Thankfully this didn’t happen after I decorated the cake:
That’s the top of the cake dish…to which cake and frosting stuck when I took the top off. 😳 It was a two-layer cake and evidently was higher than usual due to my excess use of frosting to try to level up the layers. I ran out of frosting and had to run out to get more. (I don’t make my own. Not if I want it to turn out right. I’m not so good with cakes.) When I came back and took the top off — voila — the cake had been scalped. Once I decorated it I had to leave the top off so that wouldn’t happen again, but it was still plenty moist when we ate it a few hours later.
I am thankful for a daughter-in-law who loves the Lord, loves my son, and loves his family. I’m so glad God brought her into our lives.
