Thankful Thursday

30 years is a lot to be thankful for. Yes, April marked a very important birthday for me, and this past weekend my wonderful husband threw a party to celebrate. He *really* wanted to have some sort of surprise for me ("the party can't be a surprise," he told one friend, "I need her help too much!"), so he cooked up - er, baked up - a little plan. Here's the fruit of his labor:

He made a cake in the shape of a camera! He used jello to make the lens, candies for the little buttons on top... he certainly gets points for creativity! Here's a better angle, where you can really see how 3-D it is (I'll admit that at first I thought it was a volcano. All I could see was the red jello and cone of the lens...)

So thank you, Mike, for making this birthday one to remember, and for putting so much energy into making it a special day. Here's to the next 30!

Happy 30th Birthday! I wish I could have been there to help celebrate that special birthday but I sent cards instead! Did you receive them?

What a wonderful husband you have in Mike. Bless his heart for the wonderful surprise and I love the cake. Don't show this to Dave or the two of them may go into the Cake making business. Remember Dad's 65th birthday cake????

Did you get any special gifts from the awesome men in your life?

Mike, here's a great big hug for taking such wonderful care of my little sister and making her 3oth birthday a day to remember!

Love ya all!

Wow! Yes, definitely points for creativity there! Hope you had a great 30th Sarah! I think the 30's are some of the best years in life, so here's to 10 great years ahead!! (:
