Reason #38 1/2:



In honor of my 38th birthday (which I am trying to forget!) , I wrote a post.

It included 38 Random Facts about me.

You can scroll down or read about it here.

Today, I will add a photo and more facts.

This was my birthday cake.

Nothing particularly special except my husband made it.

My kids helped too.

They used a Betty Crocker cake mix.

The husband made my homemade chocolate icing.

What ?

Yes, you read that correctly.

My husband thumbed through my recipe box.

He located my Chocolate Icing recipe.

He found the ingredients.

He stirred. He baked. He iced a 3 layer cake.

He had a little help from our children.

Candles?

He could not find them.

He improvised.

He put 38 flaming matches on top of a beautiful cake.
It was delicious!!!
Reason #38 1/2 I am again a lucky girl!

(The cake is doing nothing for problem # 6 though!)

That is so wonderful! What a sweet husband and great set of kids you have. :-)

Chocolate cake makes my birthday the best as well. It is the one day you eat cake and should not feel any guilt.

I do not have a clue as to what I am doing except to wish you a "Happy Birthday" yesterday and to let you know that 38 is better than the alternative. At least the 50's have not set in which I have tried to explain to Snowbird that 50 is also better than the alternative to which she did not think that I was very cute. I was actually going to have a sign put up in town announcing her big "50" to which she informed me she would never speak to me again. Now that is no way to talk to your sister now is it, Wendi? I think you should tell her so. Today is my 30th wedding anniversary and little did I know that all those years I babysat you that I would marry on the day after your birthday. Hope to hear from you soon. Love you, Candy Gregg MacDonald

Happy Bday! Your cake looks so delicious and it's not helping my #6 either!

Now that is a creative man. Here's for hoping your cake did not go up in flames. :-)

What a lovely husband and kids. The best gifts are the ones that people take the time to make!

This is too cute. Be sure to save a picture. If you don't have time to scrapbook just print out your blog page and make a blog journal. At 38 you think that you will always remember it, but I can tell you at 63 you will be glad that you have a reminder. Believe me, I know from experience.
