Post Birthday!

We had THE best time with the family last night for the birthday celebrations! We went to Bonefish Grill in Asheville for supper. It’s one of our favorite places to eat! They have an appetizer called Muscles Josephine that are out of this world. The sauce is something to marvel at… like you want to take a bath in it. It’s that good. Not even joking. We were so tickled because they put “Happy Birthday, Carl, Nathan & Kelly” on the specials menu (handed out to every table) which was such a lovely touch! Everyone was pumped. It felt like the whole place new we were coming in for a celebration and everyone wanted to join it. So great!

After we ate we ended up at my parent’s house for cake and presents! I know I’ve gone on and on about how I love to give gifts rather than be given them but last night was so magical. Everyone got what they wanted and then something they didn’t know they wanted but were so thrilled to receive anyway. You know that way? I love it!

Now, I want to share some photos with you. BUT I have to warn you… mom and I decorated the cake. Disclaimer: we’ve never been great at cake decoration… or cutting. When I was turning one my mom tried to cut my cake with dental floss to not mess up the decoration. Yeah. God love her, but it was a terrible idea. Just like us trying to decorate this cake. Kelly requested white with chocolate frosting. It says “Happy Bday Nay & Kelly”. It looks like this:

Right? At least it tasted good!! The baking thing we have down, at least mom and I can have that star to put on our crowns! Here are a few more favorite shots:

This one is my absolute favorite! Dad was trying to keep Kelly from blowing out the candles (we all give her a hard time in some way or another) and she’s trying to get around him and they’re all cracking up!

He looks like a creeper, on purpose. Yes, that is the owl I made sitting on the table!

Here she is! My very very first owl. Kelly loved it! I also made her a flower rose clip (on the owl’s ear). What do you guys think?

Nathan rocking the flower clip. It suits him ;]

Thanks for sharing this with me, friends! I’ll share more photos of the owl later. I’m so excited to show you how it turned out! Eeek!

  1. Love the pictures that perfectly portray the great time we all had. But I notice you didn’t claim specific credit for the shaky word “Kelly” on the cake! Your owl is perfect and Kelly loves it. I can’t wait to see what others you come up with! Love you — Mama.
