happy birthday to your beautiful daughter. seeing into your family times is such a treat for me, thank you. i feel like i know all of them and hope one day to meet in person.
and the cake.... Jade and India still bring up the time i made a birthday cake for jade and it tasted burnt.... i took it out of the oven and placed it on the burner to cool... not thinking that the burner was just on... it bunt the whole top layer of the cake, but i scrapped it off, and yet the flavor was ruined and tasted awful... last year we bought a cake. ;-)
xoxo much love.

What a beautiful family you have, Katie, & what a pretty man-woo hoo!


I thought that first picture was Violet when she was a baby! They look so much alike as babies! Cute.

My daughter turned 28 in January. My oh my how did 28 years go by so quick, huh?

These photos melted my innerds. Really; Bloglines makes them real big on my computer and it was like they were life sized and so precious. Little Violet looks so much like you it's amazing - John came and and looked at the screen and remarked on it. Oh, the miracle of genetics. And the cake - I haven't baked one in so many years; you were brave to take it on. Cheers to Heather and your beautiful family.
