I had a happy birthday today! I slept in late, had a visit from my bf and her family, a family supper with my Mom and Dad, my sister and her family and dh's sister and her hubby. Ice cream cake topped it all off perfectly.
Dd was a little concerned when she remembered my birthday this morning. She said, imagine shocked pouty face of 5 yo who loves her mommy..."But...Daddy and I didn't make your cake yet!" I am not a huge fan of cake in general, but have been making homemade and personally decorated birthday cakes for for family for a while now. Knowing that peanut allergy was no longer a concern for us, dh decided to get one of my all time favorites...an ice cream cake from Dairy Queen. Despite having felt obliged to make me a cake, she quickly came around to the value of an ice cream cake with a chocolate fudge and crumble center.
She was a great assistant when I was blowing out my candles :)
