Happy Birthday Hubby

Yay, my husband is now officially as old as me! LOL. There might only be three months between us but, my goodness, he gets in a years worth of cracks about me being the older woman.

Offsping #1 and I made a cupcake birthday cake this morning and then we quickly sang happy birthday and blew out the candles before #2 went for her nap.

The birthday cake, alight with candles.

Offspring #1 'helping' blow out the candles.

Offspring #2, attempting to shove an entire cupcake into her not-so-dainty gob!

As Hubby will be out tonight (well it is Wednesday, so there's golf!) we had a birthday lunch and made pizza. I used a new dough recipe from I Think I Have A Recipe For That. I decided to tempt fate and throw it all in the breadmaker on the dough setting and it turned out really well. I will definitely be making it again! And no, you can't taste the beer.

I'll be away for a few days from tomorrow. We're heading up the coast a bit to visit friends so I'll be back next week with photos of even more red dirt!

I love the fun! Does #2 lick the icing off before she eats the cake? I babysat a little girl who would put the cupcake on the table, lean forward and lick off the icing but then wouldn't eat the cake. Sugar, I guess, is the best! Happy Birthday to Hubby. I hope you have a good visit on the coast.

Hmmm...I'm guessing you take the icing off first, Mandi, am I right?

I'm 3 months older than my Glenn, and I can tell you, I know exactly what you mean.

Hope you all have a great trip!

YUM! How I have I not been here before? Usually I can sniff out cute kids and good food!

Have a nice little holiday.

Hubby says "thankyou" for all the birthday wishes!

Too cute, Claire. I'm a big meanie and Chantalle got it right - I take the icing off #2's cake!

LOL, Chantalle. Both at Glenn and how well you know me!

Hi Pendullum. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you'll come back again.

Hi Kristin. I'm so thrilled you stopped by! I'm a big fan of your blog. Wow, it's like I just met someone famous LOL.

Hi Suse. The offspring travel well thanks to many snacks and a car DVD player! I'll email you about skype.
