My birthday~

For my cake I decided to go with some pretty Vine Maple leaves. The boys were so sweet to go climb up to the specific tree that I wanted leaves from and got me a few choice branches. I also made a bunch of cup cakes with spelt flour and no dairy for special people who cannot have the ordinary.
Kami got me the cutest teapot that I have had my eye on for at least six months! She's so sweet!! Ben got me 2 very nice pairs of knee socks. (He heard that I was reforming and deciding to have my own socks, instead of sharing with Kami. :o) I must be growing up!) Gabe got me a beautiful pair of earings, and Dad & Mom bought me a dressy pull-over sweater, along with paying the expenses to go visit some friends in Oregon!

Happy belated birthday! I was out of town for 9 days, otherwise I would have written sooner. The cake you made is simply gorgeous. =) You have a nice touch for making cakes beautiful.

I pray you had a very blessed birthday, and may the Lord continue to draw you closer to Himself this coming year.

How pretty to use those maple leaves on your cake! I really like the effect!
And knee socks are my favorite. Especially in bed. My pants legs always ride up and my poor little leggies get cold! But knee socks always solve the problem!!
Hope you had a happy birthday!

(PS- I found you from HSA, in case you were wondering...)
