45 and Still Alive!

Today is my birthday!

Caroline and Katherine spent the afternoon working on my cake - I could be in the kitchen and take pictures (of course!), but I could not look at their creation until later!

So here it is! See that cluster of pink off to the right of center? It's a troublemaking cluster of pinkness. Just wait!

Katherine, in charge of transporting the cake from counter to table, almost lost her eyebrows in the process. She handled it well, and did not drop the cake!

I did not blow out all of the candles in one breath, maybe not even in two!

After all, now that I've hit the middle of my forties I shouldn't be expected to do much more than hang on for the ride, right?!

Hmm. I'm kidding, though if that means being pampered all the way to the end, I might consider it!

Our kids on my birthday

Katherine turning 10 1/2 today, Caroline just over 13, Morgan so very close to 15 1/2 and her learner's permit, and Will on the downhill side of 5 1/2!
