Happy Birthday to Mittu! A Day Late!

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.

  2. Awesome. I love mine! I only started collecting it last year. I had trouble finding one that didn’t look “cutesie” and one that wasn’t overly fancy. Finally decided on the Willow Tree but have to save my pennies;).

    I found 2 angels at the thrift store (which probably don’t belong to the Nativity set but they are Willow Tree) and I found 2 wisemen at the thrift store too. :0! HAHA! But we don’t believe there were three so I guess it’s ok that my wisemen are only 2;)

I love hearing from you. I've had to turn on comment moderation. Comments will appear here after I see and approve them.
