Jeffrey Came Home....

....because we got the ceiling back up in his room!  OK, he came home for his birthday, too.  But moving his furniture and stuff back into his room was the highlight of the weekend (and I worked to no end to get the room ready after the ceiling was done...washing the walls and woodwork, painting accent walls, shampooing the carpet twice, hanging drapes...I was tired by Saturday).

So, Jeff wanted lemon cake for his birthday, and I created something, since I couldn't find a recipe to exactly suit me.  He scolded me for not decorating the cake.
 I warned him that he needed to blow out his candles before the house burned down...again.


 For a while now, Jeff's been speculating as to when he would no longer be able to blow out all of the candles.
 28 was almost it.  I question whether he will make it next year.  At least he had his father to direct him.
 And what fun is a birthday without your best buddy?
 Tank sure is a good looking boy.
Happy Monday, everyone!

I'm so glad your birthday boy came home and that his room is done. Probably not funny to joke about the house burning - again, eh? Try and relax now that the boy has gone back home! g

Happy belated birthday Jeffrey! I am sure you were happy to have him home and have his room finished. I can't believe how big your youngest two sons are. Time flies!!!

The cake looks delicious and you look pretty in pink!
