Happy B-day to Me!

I turned 44 today. Yay! I think 44 is a good number. Now I'm a 44 year old mom of 4. That kind of flows. I've learned to embrace each year instead of whine about being older. You may want to check back with me on my 50th though, and see if that theory is still working.

I had to work and then I had to scoot off to dance rehearsal, so I wasn't home much today. But when I came home I was greeted by this incredible sight:

Sis (our resident cake decorator) spent the entire afternoon creating this chocolate extravaganza for me. She came up with the idea herself. I think it is just gorgeous. Knowing my affinity for dark chocolate, it's dark chocolate cake, dark chocolate frosting, and dark chocolate M&M's, AND real sunflower seeds for the little bit of salty-sweet thing.

Sis has done some beautiful cakes, but she really outdid herself with this one!

I really hated to cut into it, but it was well worth it. Wow!

I also had lots of messages on the machine with wishes for a happy birthday, and quite a few cards to open. This whole getting older thing is pretty sweet if you ask me!

Happy (belated) Birthday!!

That cake looks so yummy - great job, Sis!!

I think you're right, about growing older. ;-)

Happy Birthday, girl.

Happy Birthday from a fellow 44 year old! Age is just a number, or so they say!
